New

I love new: A new day, a new diary, a new book, a new tub of thick coconut moisturiser and a new jar of crunchy peanut butter.

Dear 2013

Dear 2013, Thank you for making me realise that life is far too short to worry about meaningless things that aren’t important, that the cure for anxiety is simply thinking more positively and living in the present moment.

The Christmas Tree, Panettone, Gingerbread Candles & Roses (lots of roses)…

I’m sitting here with my 100th chocolate from the roses tin, admiring our pretty Christmas tree (full of penguins, robins, snowmen and a random squirrel), feeling all warm and festive.
