HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!
Thankyou to all my lovely Friends who follow my Blog...
I've made some Fab online buddies through Blogging...
Love & Appreciate you all! X
P.S To listen to the music from Eva Cassidy that accompanies this video then scroll down on the right and pause my music player.
I am starting up a weekly weigh-in group on Facebook...Not to disclose our weight but how much we lose each week. We will have a dedicated day when we will report on the group wall what we have lost that week. We will all weigh ourselves on the same day for an incentive to stick to a diet and to offer support to eachother.
No more excuses!
We need a Group name so here are a few suggestions from other interested ladies I've created a poll so we can vote on what we want our group to be called.

The kids got more or less everything on their lists
Thanks to Papa putting in a Good word with Santa
There were lots of smiles which is what we like to see
After the present unwrapping Papa and our neighbour had to construct a table for our Christmas dinner to seat 12 of us.
The table was then set and our guests began to arrive
Yes Mr R from next door was suffering with a sore head from the night before
Infact all the adults were...
For every guest
A Lucky sixpence each
I filled them each with a hat, joke, party popper, Christmas earings for the ladies and toy cars for the men
They appeared pleased with the contents
It was lovely to go out Christmas eve...Its something we haven't done for years.
Sift through all the photos of you from the past year. Choose one that best captures you; either who you are, or who you strive to be. Find the shot of you that is worth a thousand words. Share the image, who shot it, where, and what it best reveals about you.
This is me in My favourite place in the whole World...
I am the most chilled in this photo that I think I've ever been.

December 23 – New Name
Wednesday, 22 December 2010
Bit of a touchy subject for me as I wanted to travel to Bulgaria this year to celebrate my 40th and to mark that it would have been my Mums 60th.
Mum loved Bulgaria...The Mountains took her breath away. She loved how simply life is over there...and how beautiful it is. Mum spent a lot of time there and had plans to retire over there. It wasn't to be.
I am desperate to visit the Rila Monastery...I worked on an assignment studying the Monastery at University a few years back and would love to see it.
That also wasn't to be...
My yearning to go caused a rift in the family...
An unnecessary rift that was not my fault.
Its a long story but the upset and hurt this rift has caused has left me feeling less enthusiastic to visit Bulgaria. Mum would be sad to hear that.

December 21 – Future Self.
Just a little update...A very good Friend of mine read this post and very wisely pointed out to me that my yearning to have moved to a more idyllic area could also have caused problems. It isnt the place we live that brings happiness..."Happiness lies deep within us"My Friend is soooo right and I urge her to write a blog of wise words.
Her words encouraged me to think a little deeper. Life would have been different if we had moved when the children were little ...maybe it may have been more relaxed, happier or more fulfilling but it could also have not been like that at all. We would also have lost out on so much. Main thing being we would not have our Beautiful Granddaughter. We adore her and life would not be the same without the joy she has bought to all our lives. I also have some Friends that are Good people that I wouldn't have met if we had took the plunge and moved to Devon ten years ago.
Search deep within yourself for a contented life...Not your surroundings. Our environment does not predict how happy our lives will be. Only us as individuals can do that. We are our own destiny!
Thankyou to Lisa for so much inspiration X
They are basically hot chocolate in a bag and are really easy to make.
You need to buy:
The cute poem reads...
Cut them out and glue them to some coloured card and put them to one side to dry.
Open a cello cone (available from ebay) and scoop in some hot chcolate.
Layer with marshmallows
and chocolate chips
I stood mine in a pint glass for stability while I was layering
