Happy New Year. May 2013 be happy, healthy and peaceful!
I am not a huge fan of New Year's Eve and I find New Year's Day a bit overwhelming. The slump after all the Christmas festivites, people returning to work and back to their new homes over the water and yet we are still in the depths of dark Winter. January can feel like a long month and I don't know what I have to look forward to yet so instead I will reflect on 2012 and try to stay hopeful and open for what 2013 will bring. Sometimes it's scary to think ahead so this month I will take it one day at a time and maybe when I read this in another year's time I will marvel at all the wonders that took place!
Until then, here is how I started 1st January. Herbal tea (from my Christmas stocking) in my yellow china cup while cracking open my new Frankie diary. After seeing them on blogs last year, I treated myself to this - maybe only the second diary I've ever bought myself and last year's cost £1 so this is a nice little luxury.
And now, a photographic reflection of my 2012. Photos I liked, some I have shared here already and some not (and I might split this into 2 posts to squeeze the pictures in!).
