Well this is a rather belated 'Happy New Year' to you all! Sorry I haven't blogged for a couple of weeks, but I haven't been too well… a good start to 2010! But as they say, things can only get better!
I really enjoyed seeing the New Year in with Sophie, her boyfriend and her best friend from a great vantage point on Lambeth Bridge. We were able to see Big Ben and the firework display too, although we were downwind and missed the end of the fireworks due to all the drifting smoke!
It was great fun and quite magical too as we had a tiny snow flurry as we walked back to the car. We arrived home just as my partner Chris got back from his gig and toasted the New Year together with a Kir Royale.
In my last post I mentioned my love affair with my Emu boots, which is still ongoing – they've been my lifesaver the last couple of weeks as I'm not very good in the snow. We had the TSV on December 29th and true to my word I stayed up and ordered a pair for Sophie's birthday. Amazingly, despite all the dreadful weather, they arrived in just three days – I was very impressed! She was with us to open her presents in the morning, then drove down to Wales to spend a few days with her boyfriend.
The picture of the frozen waterfall above (and please note she's wearing her Emu boots!) was taken near Brecon; I thought I'd include it as it's just so amazing – isn't nature awe inspiring? I've called the picture 'Ice Princess' as it's very icy and Sophie's childhood nickname was 'princess'. In fact I still call her it sometimes. Daniel's nickname is 'tiger' after the Chinese symbol for his birth year. I don't really have a nickname (as far as I know, lol!), but I'd love to hear yours and why you're called it.
It was good to catch up, speak again soon,
