Time to wish everyone a wonderful , happy and healthy forthcoming New Year .
I love New Year , clearing away christmas regalia , the anticipation and hope that all will be well .
Today I have been catching up on housework after being away from home and spending time with my family . I had a lovely time seeing new places , visiting old haunts and generally celebrating christmas in a different way than I have before .
I'm sitting around the house today catching up on old newspapers .
