in a pear tree

We had a weekend away up North for a family wedding. It was a lovely wedding and, amazingly, both the bride's and the groom's grandmothers were there - all four of them. The oldest was ninety-five.

my year of not so much

Happy New Year.

Have you made any resolutions? I've been thinking about the year ahead and some of the things I'd like to do in the next twelve months. I've actually given it a lot of thought because there are things that I think I'd like to do but somehow I never seem to have enough time for.

So this year I'm going to focus on how I spend my time.

not so much work (I hope)
not so much procrastination
and, maybe,
not so much stuff

I'll let you know what happens.
