Food, Glorious Food!

A huge, huge Happy New Year to you all on this fine day!

The sun is shining outside and there isn’t a cloud in the sky. Not a sign of the Winter blues in this house at all, I’m pleased to say! I feel badly for those who suffer from the January blues at this time of year – and I really can understand them… I used to have them myself when I was a lot younger.

There are plenty of quick and lasting cures, though. Food being a top one! I’ve devised some amazing recipes for friends and family members who are currently feeling a little under the weather. Next Sunday, we’ll be having them all over for some lovely exotic dishes and a lot of wine – which should make anyone feel better! We’ll also be loading up the projector we have in our living room with a load of feel good films so it should be a great night for us all. I really love having people round our place, it’s so much fun.

I noticed a few days ago that Christmas has taken its toll on my figure, though. My belly is literally twice the size of what it was just a few weeks ago, which isn’t great. I can no longer get into my trousers! The hubby isn’t best pleased with it either! I’m starting a fruit and veg diet and basically going vegan for a little while to see if that has any positive effect on the belly and I’ll probably combine that with a substantial amount of exercise.

My daughter set up a brand new website over the holiday period too, and I’m helping her to advertise it. Have a look if you have a moment – she now offers a wonderful Spiritual service and she can carry out sessions over the phone and over Skype or Viber and so on, for clients who reside all over the world.

In other news, we have a brand new addition to our family – a white Poodle called Hippy who we were given for Christmas by a great family friend of ours! He’s fitting in very well and we’ve even given him his own little bedroom as we just finished building a lovely little conservatory.

I plan to post far more often in 2017 than I did in 2016 – it’s been a long and eventful year, but 2017 will be far, far better and I’m really looking forward to that. I wish anyone reading this, and all my friends a fantastic new year 2017!!!
