I started 2012 curled on the sofa, two days out of hospital, with a cup of tea and a pile of books. We sneaked into the garden at midnight to wave a sparkler and listen to the fireworks.
I ended 2012 with an evening to myself, pottering around the house, re-covering a footstool (I know how to party!), drinking advocaat and eating fairy cakes, soaking in the bath, watching Bedknobs and Broomsticks, hatching plans for the new year, and looking back at photos from the last twelve months.
Wishing you and those around you a wonderful 2013, filled with adventures and cheerfulness! xx
