As I write this, I find it hard to believe that it's the 23rd January already. Usually I find this month to be a long one, but I'm pleasantly surprised to find that, this year, it seems to be zipping by! I daren't speak too soon, but perhaps it's something to do with the fact that we are having some really beautiful, bright sunny days here in deepest Devon, which always raises the spirits.
This is a lovely quote, don't you think, and so very true ....
Those of you who have been following this Blog for a few years, will know that we can get some really miserable Winters....mild, with that dreary drizzle which means that I can't even see the fields next to the garden, because of the low mist. Give me this weather any day, when you can wrap up and get outside in the fresh air and blow those cobwebs away.
My eldest daughter is having an adventure at the moment. Her and her husband have decided to take an adult gap year, and moved to Ibiza for a year at the beginning of this month. Good for them, I say! Their daughter is at University in Madrid, so this was an ideal time to do something like this. They absolutely love the Island, having been there many, many times on holiday over the past years.
Here are a couple of photos of Ibiza...
My daughter and her husband....
Alfred, their little French Bulldog, is also loving the life over there!
The good thing is that I shall soon be exploring Ibiza for myself, as I am going out there to visit them for ten days at the end of April.
Did someone mention the sewing machine??!! Can you believe that the bobbin is still causing me problems?? Anyway, I shall not let it beat me - you thought that I would have created something wonderful by now, didn't you?!
Well, I will say cheerio for now. Do leave a comment if you have the time - otherwise I'll think that I'm talking to myself over here. Don't answer that!
