Well - how did the last 12 months go... rather quickly. And quite a bit has happened - some good, and some not so good. I found a new home and am gradually getting used to a different way of life - but it's good to be nearer my immediate family....Can't believe my grandson is in the middle of taking GCSE's.. where did those 15 years go!!
The good... well I had some good and unanticipated (mostly) holidays this year..saw Red Kites in Wales, and an unexpected holiday in Florence and then again (a planned holiday) in Paris (where I finally made it to the top of the Eiffel Tower - thanks Pete)... great stuff - and more to come in 2013... :D Not done this for years... lovely to renew my acquaintance with Italy...probably my most favourite country - and the next stop is Rome in March - roll on!!
Been to some great musical concerts and had a visit to the ballet - most enjoyable - not something I've done for many years and I'm going to have a first ever visit to an Opera...... Puccini's La Boheme in March.. watch this space...
So to all my family and my friends
(in this country and abroad),
I hope there was a lot of good in your 2012 and hope there will be even better things for you in 2013.
A very Happy New Year!
