happy new year


We are back from the cold North. Sixty-three degrees never felt so good. We drove twelve hours through the blustering wind and arrived back at our home on the coast at one this afternoon. We clomped up to our beds and settled in for a long winter's nap which felt sooooo good.

Tonight we have the fireplace going and the British version of The Office on DVD. I am going to get out my yarn and needles and settle in.

I'm so glad to be home, but I will miss my family. I hardly ever get to see my nieces and nephews and I wish I could hug them once more and pinch their cheeks like all good aunts are supposed to do.

I will particularly miss the mischievous giggle of this little sprite.

Thanks for visiting.

Did you enjoy uk version of The Office? I have not seen the US version, but I have heard it is full of "beautiful people" - unlike ours!
