A happy new year & some exciting news . . .

Happy New Year to you all!
At last i am out of hibernation and have eventually emerged!
I didn't want to break the magical spell of Christmas!
We had such a lovely family time, for all the children were home.
Before New Year we found ourselves at gorgeous Kippilaw house
(what a treasure of a place, rescued from ruin, & so homely)
  celebrating with my lass & her partner as they both were turning 30!
Then it was home to celebrate the beginning of a sparkly New Year.
I love saying goodbye to all that has been and welcoming in the new,
so I have been tucked into my wee studio plotting for 2013.
Making plans for the days ahead in my beautiful new diary
( a birthday present I have been longing to use)
and we have such a jewel of a piece of news  . . .
Mr O & I are to be Grandparents in June, soo very exciting !
