A Happy 2017 message bought to you courtesy of a banner from the outside of the supermarket my son works in.

Unfortunately the bus service wasn't in operation early enough to get him to work on time so we dropped him there this morning.
He took a packed suitcase with him as after his shift he was travelling to stay with friends for a few days.
Time away, what a great way for him to start the new year.
Not long after arriving back home S was dropped off, she had been invited to a New Year's eve sleepover and judging by how tired she looked much fun had been had.
For me the first day of the year hasn't involved much more than a little light pottering and two very enjoyable hours flumped on the sofa with G watching the cracking BBC adaptation of The Witness for the Prosecution.

So what's in store for January? 
We have plans for a day out next weekend, T has a young driver lesson booked for another weekend and most excitingly G and I have a weekend away in London right at the end of the month.
But for now the sofa beckons again as Sherlock is back.


  1. Sounds like the perfect way to start the New Year Lisa! I've just been taking down all our decorations, and have already started sewing again! My aim this year is to make more than I buy( not shoes, but then I don't really need any more if those lol). I've already completed a corduroy skirt and aim to make a blouse today. Perhaps I need to do a wardrobe cull before I make any more. I hope you and your family have a happy and healthy 2017. Best wishes Jenny xx

  2. How is it that our kids seem to have better social lives than we do? Hope T enjoys his time away and lucky you having your night in London to look forward to, I can't wait to hear what you get up to.

  3. We watched Sherlock too but I didn't enjoy it as much as I have in the past so I'm hoping the series picks up after last night's episode. Hope T has a great few days away.

  4. Sounds like a great start to 2017. We were in London last week and had a fantastic time. You must be so looking forward to it - enjoy!! x

  5. Now that weekend away in London right at the end of the month sounds good.

    All the best Jan
