Hello there and Happy New Year! Thanks as always for reading my blog and do feel free to post a comment below.
So, how was your Christmas and New Year and how are you feeling about 2014 so far?
My Christmas was wonderful, a houseful of family for 3 days and we all had a wonderful time eating, playing games and going for lovely walks in the sunny Christmas weather. It was wonderful being part of baby Ruby's first Christmas and one of the funniest things was when we all got dressed up in wigs and moustaches – the photo of my sister, brother-in-law and the girls looks like a throwback to the 70s!!
I was also working throughout Christmas and I joined Chloe on air for some dancing, have a look at this funny clip.
Then it was down to Cornwall for New Year, a really lovely, quiet New Year with my extended family. Going for walks, playing games, watching some New Year telly and eating scrummy home cooked meals. One of the days we decided to make bread and butter pudding with panettone and it was good, you can see me looking very proud of myself!
I am back in London now and had a busy start back at QVC. This weekend though I had the Saturday off and joined my friend and colleague Justine Balmer for a walk in the beautiful Surrey countryside. There has been so much rain lately, it was great to be able to take advantage of the sunshine and get out for some fresh air – followed by a wonderful pub lunch and topped off with cupcakes back at home. Yes, as you may have guessed, I am not doing a new year diet!! haha!
So, that's how my new year has started, and I get the sense of lots of changes and new opportunities this year, some of which have already begun. Change is scary, the unknown is scary but if we keep the faith, lets hope we can achieve our ambitions for the year.
Would love to know how you are and if you are making any changes this year, post me a comment below.
Much love and Happy New Year,
