Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and are enjoying the first few days of 2016. Boomer and I spent Christmas here in South Carolina while Kathy went home for the first time in three years. She had a great time spending the holidays with her family while Boomer and I got as festive as possible here.....plenty of Christmas movies, hot chocolate, listening to my new Adele album, mulled wine, a box of Cadbury chocolate biscuits....oh yea I totally spoilt myself!
2015 was an interesting year - it had lots of ups including marrying my best friend, going on a fabulous honeymoon to Key West and Miami and being awarded a scholarship for cancer research - it also had a couple of downs, some very stressful weeks wondering about the future and job and visa issues that made the last few months of 2015 very hard. You might have noticed that I've been very quiet on here lately and that's why, I just didn't have the motivation to share much.
2016 is a new year - things are better job and visa wise (not perfectly sorted out yet but getting there) and I'm more motivated that ever to start making some positive moves career wise......time to start thinking bigger/better/moving on etc......but rather then stressing about it like I did all in 2015, in 2016 I'm going to take it as it comes and stress less.
So here's to 2016, I'm ready for you! I also have a million different knitting and sewing project ideas floating around in my head and I can't wait to get started. My finish 15 in 2015 was a bust...especially from a sewing perspective, I completed (knitted and blogged about) 7 knits even though I have 4 more that are finished but no shared and I only 3 sewing projects....pretty crappy!!! I've no plans to start a 16 in 2016 instead I'll just aim to complete all the projects that are currently waiting in the wings. I also want to dye more yarn, it's been such a fun learning process and I can't wait to do more! and of course to keep blogging along the way
Happy New Year everyone!
PS: Boomer's lovely Christmas sweater was a gift from Funky Christmas Jumpers - thanks guys!
