As a family we have been wanting to see the back of 2011 for quite a while, and it hasn't been able to come quick enough for our liking. But we are on the cusp of change now, we have clean, fresh year ahead of us, where I feel friends and family will be just as important, but hopefully there will be far more joy, fun, love, laughter.
I know of some families where it looks like 2012 is going to be a tough year, and I hope and pray that they too have the support of friends and family for when times are tough.
I wish you all many blessings for this coming year

There were classical concerts listened to and watched, Grandma bags given out in memory of Jean, plenty of toys played with, too much food eaten, and many more things. We were all facing a different Christmas, but it has been lovely, surrounded by so much family. Truly special.

It got me thinking, how often do I actually sit down and focus on what I am eating. Usually I pick up some food and eat it whilst busy doing something else. I remember those times as a child, eating my food so slowly, finding the best place to take a bite from that apple. Food was truly a pleasure. Even if I did get told off for "playing" with my food.
Whilst I have been reading and trying to be mindful of the things I do, it looks like I have the best teacher right here in our midsts.

Here he is all finished. Trying to get him in natural light is pretty hard at this time of year. Trying to get hold of him full stop is pretty hard too, as a certain little girl seems to think he is rather cute, and doesn't want him to go to someone else!!
It is a great feeling at this time of year, having had so many projects on the go, to be slowly ticking them off, and I must admit that I rather like Rudolph, even if he looks nothing like the original pattern!
Linking up with Ginny for her weekly yarn along.

Joining in with Jacqui at the Barefoot Crofter, for a glimpse at our seven days. Which, if I am honest, have been a bit too eventful for my liking this week!

A lovely evening, which ended all too soon (a sign of a good time!) Came away with the programme for next year, which looks to introduce me to even more elements of fibrecraft I have yet to discover!

easy cable bag.
I am joining in with both Ginny and Spinspiration this week, and figure this covers both. But as for reading, there have been way too many deadlines to meet to be able to settle to anything!!

We have put the Christmas tree up, with Alec playing jingle bells on the guitar, and Luke playing drums on anything he can hit!
