Shadows of Christmas past....

It seems like only a moment ago I was preparing for Christmas - and now here we are preparing to welcome in a New Year.....2007!! Holy Moly. Things are still whirling in my head...I am hoping to try iron them out by next week...;)

I had a really lovely Christmas {hope you all did too!!..thank you for all the merry wishes!} with my family {but sans brother and sister in law who are in the States - boohiss} and a dear friend who I had over....I got some lovely little things, which I am looking forward to sharing soon! I have just been relaxing, catching up on lots of sleep {hurrah!!}....doing nice things like watching good films {a brilliant animation today, Spirited Away by the amazing Hayao Miyazaki} and reading good books {The Unbearable Lightness of Being which is underway....and also On Beauty by Zadie Smith which I am trying to resist until the bookclub kicks off....trying I tell you!! ;))} - seriously putting off thinking about my tax return which needs to be started asap.......putting off, putting off. That's what a holiday is about through, right? The new year will be here soon enough and all things on the big to-do list will get dealt with. honestly.

Tonight...another film, nice meal, wine, bed, sleep.....then wake up to Hogmanay. *Wishing* you all just the most wonderful night for tomorrow eve and a truly great start to 2007!!!! See you here next year - I will share some more {fun} to-dos' and grand plans for the coming months then......

Much, much love!!
Slanj to you all at the bells!!!
