Happy New Year 2013!


Christmas tree in the wood


It’s been four weeks since I last posted an entry to this blog.  Things were manic just before Christmas with college and work, and a few other things I’d to deal with.  But, hey, on the bright side of things, I’m off to a good start this year! Last year I didn’t get posting until the 3rd of January.

Happy New Year to all of you who’ve taken the time to stop by today and in the past.  I hope you had a great Christmas.  I’m happy to report I that had a really relaxing few days, and kick started the new year off with a beautiful walk this morning.

Canon Hill, Clonmel


This isn’t really the sort of thing you expect to see when you’re out for a walk surrounded by trees. It’s lovely though. I wonder who put the decorations there and if they’re coming back to clear them away.  It reminds me a bit of one of those rag trees or fairy trees that I blogged about before.

I’m not going to mention New Year’s resolutions.  I’ve resigned myself to the fact that I make them and I break them, although I did fairly well last year with the weight loss one….until around June.  At this moment in time I would be much too embarrassed to return to my local Weight Watcher’s meeting.  I’m going to work away quietly at returning to the weight I was at the last meeting, then bound into class some night to be commended for how well I’ve been sticking to my guns and ‘maintaining’ my weight loss!

I’ll make my own Silver Sevens.

I’ve set some goals though.  One of them is to get the house extension done. It will hopefully start next week. The markings on the ground in the photo below are where it will be going.

Another major one is to get through this Honours Degree without cracking up at some point.  That will, no doubt, feature in many upcoming blog posts.  The joys of it all!! 🙂


Happy New Year to all my fellow bloggers, friends, family and blog visitors! 

May we all reach our goals this year and realise our full potential.
