And a Happy New Year to you All!
If you'd have asked me a week ago what I'd be doing tonight on New Years Eve (one of my least favourite nights of the year). I'd have probably not been able to give you too much detail. Only it would have involved Chief. I felt certain it would happen this holiday. But alas it was not meant to be. So here I am sat on the sofa, laptop on my knee, Porridge the movie is playing on TV for the millionth time.' I'm resisting the urge (and failing) to keep saying: 'Norman Stanley Fletcher' in that deep voice like in the opening credits; whilst munching on one of the cheese and ham palmiers I made earlier this evening. I've traded in the premixed Snowball for a cup of Yorkshire Gold Tea because some retro drinks, in my opinion, are better left in the past.
I am not one for making resolutions just because it's New Years. I figure if you want to change something you need to start on it when you think of it. Turning over a new leaf just because we embark on a new year is not a recipe for success. In fact in the bleak January and February winter days it's quite easy to let all those good intentions fall by the wayside. Having said that I have, during my last week of non making, resolved to lift my game creatively. I was quite productive in 2011, but some how the stuff I want to make, in the style I want to make it, is bearing little resemblance to stuff I actually make most of the time. Maybe it's because I feel so inspired in blog land and I'm still trying to find and define my own style. I do feel that if I can get this sorted I will be a lot happier with my making through out 2012.
So Happy New Year dear friends and readers. I hope you have a lovely evening whatever you are doing and here's to a Happy, Healthy and Creative 2012!
