Its been quite a busy few weeks here for us.

We headed to New York for 5 days, Jimmy, Nicola, Linda, my son, Chris, met us there after flying from London and myself. We had an absolute ball of a time. THe snow came and it was freezing but in New York you dont mind as its so magical at this time of year. Especially going around Central Park and the Rockefeller centre, pure bliss and the Christmas lights just magical. 

Then we all arrived home for Christmas which of course was lovely with us all together and the grandchildren. It was a hectic few days I can tell you but so lovely. Then yesterday my son had to return to London, work beckoned after 2 weeks!! but it was sad to see him go as its been a while since we had him home for so long. Now the house feels so empty........I cant wait for the New Year to be over and start January, my favourite month of the year.

New beginnings and lots of planning to do both inside and outside in the garden. Looking forward to meeting up with everyone at Johnstown and doing some shopping!!!

I bougth this brilliant new Apple Macbook Pro and thought Id be in business putting up photos here, but alas that is not to be for some reason!! Will that new site ever materialise..................I do hope so because I wont be able to put up any photos unless you all stand on your head or sideways! lol, 

Anyway.........lets see if the new year brings a new site, we live in hope!

So finally, I would like to wish you and your famililes a Wonderful New Year, blessed with health, happiness and peace. 

Hope to see some of you in the next few weeks!!

You all looks so happy and what a lovely experience to share with your family. It must be a fantastic city to visit during the Christmas season. Best wishes to yourself and all the family for a Happy and Healthy New Year.

Happy New Year Jackie, sounds like ye had an amazing time. I always look forward to January too as we are over the hump of winter and start to slowly see the garden wake up again.

Happy New Year to you and family. Jackie. And there was I and went to Dublin for Christmas and thought I was going far. I have never been to New York although I have been to Moscow!

Thank everyone. we had such a great time. Can’t wait to get out in the garden. But unfortunately I’ve been sick for almost 3 weeks. Eventually had to go to Dr on New Years Eve and get antibiotics. Septic throat and resp infection. But hopefully all will be well in a few days and I’ll be in Johnstown to see some of you on 13th.
