We are off to a family New Year's Eve Wedding today. I am so looking forward to it, as it will be lovely to be with all of our family on New Year's Eve. Must try to pace myself with the alcohol.....don't want to embarrass myself in front of everyone !!

..... and, don't forget to watch the London Fireworks that will bring in 2012 ..... for the second year running, our son, Daniel, has mixed all of the music that accompanies them. Last year the fireworks and the music were spectacular.

.... and, finally, please go over to Lou, Boo's and Shoes on New Year's Day. Her beautiful, honest and thought-provoking blog is two years old , and I am guest posting on that day, so please go over and comment and also peruse her lovely blog.... you won't be disappointed.

That just leaves me one more thing to do and that is to wish all of my supportive followers and commenter's a very Happy, Healthy and Peaceful New Year. May 2012 be filled with everything that you wish for.
