Hope you have all had a nice weekend. I celebrated Christmas again yesterday! We started the tradition a few years ago with a group of good friends. For most of us Christmas in December is spent with family so we came up with the idea of celebrating again in January together. It is fun! So yesterday saw me cooking turkey and all the trimmings again!
Today has been beautiful. Clear blue skies, the nicest day we have had since.... well it's been so long I can't actually remember! So I pulled on my wellies (it is still very wet and muddy underfoot) and headed out for a lovely long walk. It means that I haven't done any work on my manuscript today but the fresh sea air and the sight of the sunshine was a huge boast to the system so the pay off was worth it. I also strolled up to the top of our garden to see if any of the snowdrops were appearing yet. I mentioned them as one of the January birth flowers and a few people commented that they weren't familiar with the flower. I think it is native to Europe. I found a small patch of snowdrops just coming into flower so I took a photo and thought I would add it to this post. Unfortunately, blogger isn't playing ball and for some reason the photo won't upload. Arrgh sorry! I'll add at a later date if I can work it out!
Finally, just a couple of things I have signed up for and wanted to hightlight in case you have missed them.
Annalisa Crawford and Kyra Lennon are hosting this fun bloghop about imaginery friends to celebrate the first year anniversary of Annalisa's book Cat & The Dreamer Congratulations, Annalisa.
Vik over at Scribblings of an Aspiring Author is starting a hop for us to share and celebrate our weekly small achievements.
