So 2014, was a good'un! Far more than shown here, lots of sunshine, happy family times, good food, giggles, knitting, painting, crocheting, music, baking, running (yes, me running!) German (my studies plod on) French another string to my bow with the Open University, reading, sewing
Gosh, looking at it like that, I can see why I didn't find time to blog.........
I wonder what 2015 holds? More of the above I hope!
Here's wishing you a happy and healthy 2015 with new adventures and challenges, new skills to learn and experiences to be had!
