Happy New Year

Hello! Thought I would dust off my little blog - one of my resolutions!
Have had a great few months. Now work in a fantastic team that make it a pleasure to go into work - am very happy there. Also, I have got my mojo back BIGTIME! Can't stop crafting at the moment! I am currently doing 25 days of December book. This is my third one and I do love going back and reading my others. I am doing it on my own this year, so I was worried that I wouldn't finish it but I am on day 18 and itching to go back into my room! Plus I am a bit chuffed as I have not bought anything new to do it, it is all existing stash so feels even better! One thing it has made me appreciate is how much time I spend with people I care about - almost every day is a day filled with smiles and hugs. I know this is the case, but to see it in a scrapbook makes it even better iykwim!! I have also got a list of to do's, including some canvases for friends, sewing projects and scrapbooking. Just a shame I have to work cos it does get in the way sometimes!

Since August I have been going to Slimming World. I never thought I would enjoy it so much - I love cooking (who'dve thought!) and have lost 2.5 stone so far! Another one of my resolutions is to walk alot more. There is no point living in the Yorkshire Dales and visiting the Lakes every weekend to not make the most of it! We have done two walks so far, one to the moors and one around Embsay res. I have to say, I have not found it too hard - so the loss is paying off already!
These are some piccies from Embsay Res, man it was bloody cold! The first one is Yorkshire's version of pebble skimming! The ice sounded really weird, the noise echoed round the whole res - very eerie.

And this was our walk yesterday - up on the moors, again flipping cold!

This is my first ever beacon touch - felt very proud to do that one!
So, here we are - crafting and walking, and life is gooood!

Nice to see you back blogging, Lisa.

Love the idea of walking in the Dales.
