Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to you and you and YOU! It's hard to believe we are at the end of DAY 3 in 2008. The Christmas season is definitely over and people are back to buying goodies from Georgie Love for themselves again as I have spent the afternoon wrapping lovely things in orders for folk that they can KEEP (and not give away)! I think I have highlighted in here many times, I am very GREEDY!!!!

As for all of us, my better half Dr-Mr got my not-so-subtle hint and he and the delightful Emma Grace did secret business behind my back and I DID get one of her amazing silver heart necklaces in my stocking. I absolutely love it and have been wearing it non-stop since then. George is much happier than he looked in that picture shoot below (it was the hat he protested about, but begrudgingly wore it for a few minutes so I could take the photo).
Well.... except... we live on 3/4 acre and George HATES WITH A PASSION going outside. People don't believe me when I tell them, he won't even stay out if Dr-Mr or I are outside with him... he does like the balcony (and walkies, obviously), but the backyard I think carries all kind of rescue dog former life baggage. It's making me sad and I can't work it out to make it better for him.

Apart from my neurotic, very spoilt and slightly odd dog, having some time off (after Christmas in Albury) and time at home, has been wonderful. I have spent the time following:

1. Hanging out with my friends.

2. Planting new things in the garden and watching them grow!

3. MANY cups of tea and leftover Christmas cake (mmmm cake!)

4. Finally getting to read the latest copy of Mixtape!

5. Enjoying the few days of rain, balcony views (and afternoon glasses of wine with Dr-Mr)

6. Watching/feeding the bossy wild birds!

I hope your holiday break was as relaxing as mine! And if NOT relaxing, filled with busy fun and much joy. :-) I hope 2008 brings good luck and good things to you!
