Hello 2013

I'm back! 
Hello lovelies!
Did you miss me? Ive missed you and am looking forward to getting back into the bloggy swing of things over the next few weeks.
I hope you all had a magical Christmas and the start of the new year has been good to you.
We had a wonderful Christmas and New Year and we are gradually getting back to our day to day routine.
I'm not very good with resolutions (I seem to fail quite miserably) but this year I have set myself some goals (see, taking a different approach here, in the hope I can fulfil them!)
1. I aim to teach myself to knit (with a little help from my lovely mummy)

2. I aim to visit the library more (I buy far to many books!)

3. I am on Mission crochet cushion covers

4. Trying to eat more healthily and get more exercise (not sure about this one!)

5. Start a bit of cross stitch

6. Learn to machine sew - Hubby paid for me to go on a one day sewing course at the end of this month, I am tres excited!

7. Learn so new crochet techniques - I have started with Amigurumi

Have you got any goals for 2013?
Little Miss celebrated her 3rd birthday yesterday.  3 - I can't quite believe it, where does time go?


I think she had a magical day


  1. Good morning and Happy New Year Victoria!
    Nice to see you back!
    I hope you'll accomplish all your personal goals in 2013.
    Happy Birthday to your daughter! :)

  2. Good morning Victoria and Happy New Year to you!...I hope you and your family have a wonderful 2013!
    I'm so happy to read that you're going to learn to will have so much fun. I love all your goals (you're going to be having such a lovely crafty time!)...I've set quite a few goals for myself too and I think I need to add 'not to buy so many books' to the end of my list too!
    Happy 3rd birthday to your little one. I'm sure she had a fabulous day!

  3. Hello Victoria, Happy New Year to you and yours. Glad you enjoyed Christmas. It is nice to get back to normal isn't it. I always fail resolutions before the end of the month, so like you I like to set goals - achievable ones that is. Good luck with yours. I love your background by the way. How did you come by this? Not that it want the same but just something a little different.
