Belated New Year Celebrations

9 January 2022

Happy New Year! Even though we are a week into the year already, I didn't really celebrate it until now because the children have been with their dad for a bit, so I waited for them to come back and have a bit of a celebration, the first new year in our new home!
In the meantime I got some jobs done around the flat, painting over a water stain on the ceiling, deep cleaning the carpets, all the fun stuff.
I did however put up my new desk lamps which I bought for myself for xmas and put under the tree. I'm really happy with the amount of light under which I completed my tax return : (
You have to take the small joys in life when you can, has been my mantra in life!

So I'm enjoying a sort of tidy desk and I also bought a lovely new cloth bound sketch book which I intend to use as an excuse to spend all day in a cafe.

I finally framed some prints of the kids! they are a bit bigger now but these sum up their personalities very well I think.

So a week after the big day, we had a proper candle lit tea and cake, followed by dinner, just eating all day.

I recently found some vintage handmade glasses, each of the three have different animals engraved on them. One of my favourite finds!
I usually save some presents from xmas to give them at new year...

This is a Panettone given to us for xmas from my brother and sister in law.

and this is the pizza I made for dinner.

Some pictures of a me that Pehr took...

and she was very proud of this photo she took of me and a creme brûlée.

I love the amount of candle reflections in the bay window.

So I have already ticked off a few dull January jobs from my list, we are excited about our plans for the garden and a trip to London to meet some relatives for the first time next month. Lots of jewellery materials are arriving too so I'll get on and make some new samples soon. I think this year will be a good one x
