Roll on 2013

Well Christmas has been and gone and the New Year is imminent, bring it on. 

Christmas was lovely, quiet but one of the best ever. I did decorate the tree and even put some decorations up in the lounge, got these fab paper garlands and hanging things from Not on the high street The lounge still needs more to make it look festive but at least it's a start. Here is the tree and self styled guardian of said tree, Harley.

Did really well for pressies again this year, a new lens for my camera (been too wet to play but looking forward to the nicer weather), pitt big brush pens, cd's, new book, fab pencil case made by my pal Kathb and a hamper full of goodies, also made by Mrs B. So a good time was had by all.

We are having a quiet night in tonight, takeaway and maybe even a little tipple or two but unlikely MP or I will stay up to see in the New Year. 

I will be glad to see the back of 2012. It started off on a crappy note with the death on New Years Eve of my beloved Muggle and hasn't really improved a lot since then. A year of uncertainty with the impending closure of PCT's (thanks Mr Lansley) has been clarified with recent matching and pooling of jobs in the 'new' organisation and I didn't. Then applying for left over jobs in the new organisations and I didn't get offered so now it's looking like I will be made redundant at the end of March. The letters came Christmas Eve, how's that for timing! A close friend has also had a bad year with family ill health and that's another reason for wishing the old year out, and a new improved year in, so come on 2013, New Year to look forward to.

RIP Muggle - missed every day x

So signing off and wishing everyone a very Happy New Year. May 2013 bring you everything you wish for xx See you next year with news of the 2013 photography scavenger hunt.


  1. Tree looks lovely , can't agree more about 2013!

  2. Happy New Year Julie, I hope there is a bigger and better job out there for you just to show the PCT how remiss they were in not offering you a job!! How dare they!


Happy to take any comments and constructive feedback, Thank you for taking the time. Julie
