New Year's Eve

There will be magic and sparkle this evening... New Year's Eve is full of anticipation, expectation and promise don't you think?  We look back over the year that has been before and appreciate the good things, acknowledge how we have got through the bad times and plan for the year ahead.

This was Christmas day in Mexico where we had a fabulous holiday --- the children at the resort let off hundreds of red and white balloons.  Father Christmas came in by parachute and then there was a spectacular thunderstorm, we went into the sea and swam with cornet fish and floated like starfish whilst watching lightening above - it was a wonderful day.

I was given a magic wand by a very special friend and neighbour - it's a wood fairy wand and unique, hand made for me by her father, the handle is hand carved and smoothed, glittery metal stem and sparkling star all shaped by gifted hands. .. a wand that is made specially for you is truly the best and most magical....

So with a sprinkle of fairy dust I am wishing everyone a Happy, Healthy, Safe New Year 2017 full of nice surprises, delightful treats and magic moments.  Thank you for following my blog, I will try to post seasonally in 2017 and will visit all of yours often.
