Today I went a walk round the village I live in . No one about ! just the occasional car whizzing by . the sunshine was lovely but a cold wind .
I really enjoyed christmas but I,m so looking forward to Spring . My son and daughter,in, law visited over christmas, Sue told me her daffodil bulbs are already showing the little pointy leaves . Where they live in Bristol the daffodils are over before the ones here in the midlands are in flower.
Iv,e been browsing the blogs, www.beeinmybonnet.com has lovely flower pics,. on her blog . She lives in Utah . I,m hoping my garden will be top notch this year . It will be the second year after the revamp . I used to have birds in my garden , they went elsewhere when the trees and bushes were taken down . they are slowly coming back. I sit in the conservatory watching but I must get binoculars to keep a better watch .
At present I,m into anything pearls , cheap cheerful ,or otherwise . I love pearl and pearlescent things, so this year I shall be looking out for such things. Places like the boutique shops usually carry strings of pearls .
I wanted to trim my white christmas tree with silver and turquoise baubles at christmas . Blue or turquoise were not to be seen anywhere so the decorations were the same as last year .
This year I will only make lap quilts , no full size . looking at the blogs there are plenty of knick knacky things to keep my fingers busy . I shall be on the lookout for a length of shabby roses fabric to make a mantle cover.
I received lots of presents at christmas, all my family and friends gave me wonderful things . I thought no one had given me a diary but the last thing I unwrapped was a diary , I thought by the shape of the parcel it was a bar of chocolate . A diary , my happiness was complete.
I haven,t made any new year resolutions but I will try to keep a tighter hold on the purse strings .
