Happy New Year

We're starting 2019 with a lovely fresh bright morning here.  



It's been a busy Christmas with lots of visitors and although I'm fed up cooking it's been a brilliant week.  

We hiked up the hill to the Big Stone yesterday with my lovely nieces from Australia and their boyfriends and wandered around checking out the sights and feeling very proud of ourselves for getting up there.   I was totally disenchanted when my husband, who likes to stick to the facts (groan) told me it was only 700 ft and I only climbed a third of that - humph ... It felt at leasts a 1000ft! - who needs facts when we feel accomplished lol  

The sky was just amazing and lots of people were getting out in the fresh air before getting back to work.   

There's another few days of eating out this weekend, Nollaig na mBan (women's Christmas), a road bowls day, and some catching up with friends to do - I'm almost looking forward to getting back into routine again .... well, soon :)  


I wish you a wonderful bright new year, with lots of joy, good health and happiness and I look forward to following your adventures in the coming months.
