A few photos to share

Some photos from over Christmas and New Year, including a very frozen lake at Stowe Gardens and afternoon tea at The Dorchester. Ceviche was the dish that we made for starters on Christmas Day. It's a Peruvian recipe which involves marinating fish or other seafood in citrus juices instead of cooking. Very easy to make and very tasty!

Welcome 2010!

Ten days into 2010 already! I had a lovely Christmas and New Year with plenty of eating, drinking and merriment.

On a personal level, 2009 was one of the nicest, most-contented years I've had in a long time. I found a job that I am really enjoying, which has made a huge difference to my life. I had a fabulous holiday which surpassed every expectation. I also started ATS dancing again and discovered a wonderful and friendly community of very lovely ladies.

So, what would I like from 2010? I'm not sure really. I'd like to get my driving licence, but I still have doubts about my ability to keep my nerves in check. I plan on doing loads more dancing! I'd like to do more walking/trekking too. I'm not sure we'll get as far as Peru this year, but there are plenty of lovely places in the UK to keep us amused. I'm also aiming to get a lot more of the flat decorated. It would be nice for it to be completed at least few months before we decide to move elsewhere! Hmmmm, I think that's enough to keep me busy!
