Merry Christmas!!!

To all my readers - Merry Christmas!
I hope the festive season is full of fun times and lots of yummy food! May 2012 bring you much joy..and yarn :)

2011 has been a pretty shit year to be honest. 2010 was bad, and I never considered 2011 would bring even worse. The earthquakes did so much damage - to our beautiful city, to our family. I think we will be carrying the effects of those months for many years.

In spite of everything - the exhaustion, the stress, the worry and fear, the move to the other end of the country and leaving behind loved ones and a broken city, 2012 has ended on a high note...

The sweetp family bought our first home a few weeks ago (hence the blog silence for a bit there)! It is everything we were looking for - modern (warm and dry with no draughts), with a nice view, close to town but still a little bit isolated. We've been enjoying the novelty of knowing it is OURS to do with as we wish, and have spent the last few weeks settling in and getting things sorted. It is exciting and nice to end the year with something special just for us.

And what new house would be complete without a new yarn/book storage area? I call this sweetp's corner and it makes me smile every time I look at it.

So summer for us this year will be quiet as we settle in to our new home and recover from a busy term/stressful year. I'm looking forward to doing not a lot of anything, hanging out at the beach and maybe a few day trips to local sights and beaches.
I hope you have lots of nice stuff planned too and have a lovely day tomorrow with your loved ones x
