Good grief! It's the 4th of January and I saw my first advert for Cadbury's Creme Eggs last night. Sometimes it would be nice if the marketing people would just leave us alone to remember the nice bits about the holidays for a little while.
Despite that, Happy New Year everyone! Our trip to Germany has been and gone, with a few dramas (lost luggage being just one) and (sadly for me at least) no snow, but we had a good time too, a rest, some delicious food and some nice trips out (there's a post about the Christmas market to follow this one).
Christmas was spent with Mr G's family, and New Year with some friends who have a boy and a girl of a similar age to Stashlet. Stashlet was still wide awake at midnight so we sat by a window and watched the midnight fireworks. He was mesmerised and I think it really helped him to understand that all the bangs he heard in bed were just pretty colours and nothing to be frightened about.
So now back to normal life and 2014. No resolutions but a to-do list: I need to post on here more often, find a job, make Stashlet some hoodies (before he has got so big that there is not enough fabric!), do some patchwork and lose 10kg. Not necessarily in that order though!
