Happy New Year

So that was Christmas was it? actually considering the events that have led up to Christmas this year it wasn't too bad. Now the turkey has been consumed,the champagne drunk and the Christmas cake crumbled and life can nearly return to normal, whatever that is. Today is the husband's birthday so that requires more food and then there's NYE tomorrow which as usual is being 'celebrated' here so even more food to do (& eat) for that so I think a serious diet will be in force in January.
And I can't wait to clear the decks- I enjoy decorating the house for Christmas but I even more enjoy ripping it all down again as it means next stop SPRING!
But before then I have to get to grips with my dissertation - oh help, perhaps I say with Christmas a bit longer.
Happy 2010 to you all!

Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow

I know it is really annoying for some people and I feel really sorry for all those people who have had plans that have been messed up by it but I love the snow. It's never quite lost that magical feeling for me and I love the feeling of walking through it all wrapped and cosy (except for that end of your nose that sticks out and always turns bright red and drips!) The dogs have been enjoying it too although Kit Cat keeps eating it-not sure why. It could be a bit of a problem if it persists on Tuesday as it is my Mother-In-Laws funeral but at least the church will look beautiful.

Assessment has come and gone and I was pleasantly surprised by marks which I thought might be a bit awful given the dreadful semester I've had- but they were actually quite good esp. for my 'shoes'- I did enjoy doing those. So after Tuesday I can get on with sorting out Christmas without worrying about work - well until January at least.

It will be a very quiet Christmas for us this year but that's nothing unusual as we have very little family but at least it will mean we can enjoy it should it be white Christmas as the song says 'when you've no place to go- let it snow, let it snow,let it snow'.

To everyone out there in blogland may you have a very Happy Christmas and a wonderful and peaceful New Year.

Sad Times

My Mother-In-Law has passed away. Because of her long and distresssing illness in some ways it is a relief but it is always sad when somebody leaves you esp. for my Husband, Father-In-Law and Daughter. Safe passage Vera.
