Celebrations are over, left overs in the process of being eaten up, visitors on their way home and we are gradually getting back to 'normal'. Just need to clear Christmas away as it's all been dumped on the dining room table. I think I'll sort the cards out first and as most of them are homemade ones that travel backwards and forwards each year. I can envelope them all up this month and just have to sign and address them in December. 

The decorations will be boxed up and labelled and put in the loft for another year and the presents used, displayed or eaten!

We ate, drank and made merry with birthdays, Christmas, New Year and more birthdays and are now eating the minimum so we can feel healthy again. 

My 'normal' will be dancing, swimming, walking. reading and looking after the home and garden plus going out for a meal every now and again. I did make a resolution to post a picture every day but that's gone by the board already. 

I wish you all best wishes for a year of health and happiness with friends and family.


PS The resolution has been reinstated and here are the first 6 days of the year.
