I didn't manage a Christmas post this year - there was 'flu in the house We haven't been 100% here, and we had to change our plans, but we did enjoy a small, quiet Christmas here at home and Nanna came to stay. I do hope your Christmasses were free of viruses and weather problems.
The days are now starting to get longer and I do enjoy this time of year - it feels fresh, and my outlook changes. I start eyeing the garden again with plans for the clearing and rearranging that I didn't manage in the autumn. I went out there yesterday and managed to find a few spots of prettiness to pop in a jar.
January's Splash of Colour project will begin this Monday coming - the 3rd. I started the project in the hope that looking at bright colours throughout the winter may help that rather grey, hibernating feeling that can descend. Blogging colour at the beginning of every month from November until February would mean only four such posts to get us through the winter - we are half way through, which feels good.
Happy New Year - see you on the other side
Note: The SOC flickr pool is here, but I'd love to incorporate non-Flickr participants in the colourful mosaics if I can. If you'd like to send me a photo or two then it would be great to be able to include them.
