Back to rights
The decorations are down and the boxes are packed away in the loft. Time for the New Year to begin in earnest. I've been moving things around and re-potting the Christmas cyclamen, digging out some forgotten objects such as my little green candlestick.
Two lovely magazines arrived in the post today. I had a subscription to Pretty Nostalgic for Christmas and I'm delighted about it. This is a really original magazine that is going from strength to strength. I love the quirky subjects they are covering, and the way it is designed. Country Living, which I feel has been in the doldrums recently, overshadowed by lots of new competition, has come back with a beautiful February issue. Can't wait to sit down with those two later on.
My hyacinths have come out, despite the gloom they have struggled through and I love their splash of green and white.
So it's out with the old and in with the new. I took these photos on my new camera, so that's a good start.
PS Thanks to people who left kind notes and advice about my guinea pig! Minnie is fine, she has moved into a new bijoux house for one, and is being thoroughly spoiled.
- I'm a freelance journalist living in Northamptonshire with my husband and two children. I love visiting auctions and markets and writing about my inexpensive finds. I'm the editor of a local magazine, so I find out about loads of interesting things that are happening in my community, some of which I would like to share here, too.
