HAPPY NEW YEAR

Wishing you all a ....... What have I done since 22nd Dec when I last blogged - answer is really NOT A LOT !! I had hoped to go to Germany to visit my son but the cost of the trip turned out to be too great so he came home. His travel is funded by the company he works for. I hope instead to go out there in the spring when hopefully the cost will be lower and days are longer, so I would be able to see more!!

Anyway it was great to have both the young people home for Christmas - my daughter was only able to be here for Christmas Eve and Day as she has managed to find a part time job for the holidays and as a student she needs the money. Presents included a new mobile (cell) phone, as the screen had switched off on my old one, and some lovely clothes. My son left on 29th to visit some friends and I had a chance to visit my daughter to go shopping in the Sales on 30th.
I spent yesterday alone sorting out my wardrobe - it needed a good clear out and I read somewhere that you should tidy up at the end of the year so that you can start the new year clear. I spent the evening alone too but that was fine as I was working on my distressed book which holds my distressing samples for the HH course........It will not close so I may have to think of a fastening when I finish off the cover. Today I am full of flu like symptoms - headache, sore throat, bunged up nose. I think I will try to continue with some HH studies! Research on laptop with TV just muttering to itself in the background as I guess there will be nothing to watch and I would rather TV than radio today.

Happy New Year Anna! I too am clogged up with flu at the moment, I hope you manage to get rid of yours before it comes to anything.

Your HH book looks like it's bursting with exciting pieces. By the way what does HH stand for??
I'd advise all OS bloggers to take a trip downunder and enjoy our Oz summer. It's a bit cooler today-26C but we'll be heading down to Torquay this morning to watch the 'Nippers'. Hope you're feeling better soon.

I love the distressed book -- so many intreging things to explore. Sorry about the virus. I seemed to be plagued with something similar. I hope you are feeling better soon
