Now that the madness of Christmas and New Year is done it’s time to start a fresh with the new year to come.
Hi start every month with a doodle on my kitchen chalk board so that when I get my coffee every morning it gives my that little smile to start my day.
This doodle wasn’t my most imaginative I will admit but if like me, you don’t have a whole lot going on in January other than trying to get back into the routine that is everyday life then this is a happy little reminder that yes it’s cold and dark outside but we are faced with the promise of warmer days to come!
That’s pretty much all that gets me through this month is knowing that we are that much closer to spring and the loving embrace that is a nice sunny day!
Hope you are all keeping well and belated New Year wishes to you all!
I love that in the beginning Eve is a sceptic who due to previous heartache and loss detests Christmas but as the story progresses she starts to warm to the season.
She is left a theme park which is under construction on the orders of her late aunt. This is something which when she is first told believes to be a joke. She then finds out that the park is not her alone. She has been left this to share with a stranger whom she has never met. Her aunt was very fugal in life so when she find out that her out in motion the construction of a very lucrative business venture she is in awe. She has every intention to mussel out the partner she is landed with and run this place on her own.
Convinced that Mr Jaq Glass, but business partner, is a con man she makes it her mission to find out all she can about him. She discovers that he is an ex service man and that makes her blood boil given that her diseased fiancé wall killed in action.
She believes he is a fraud and to say that she detests him is an understatement.
Little does she know but he was chosen to reawaken her love for Christmas and encourage her to live again.
His arrogance and self assurance just makes her hate him that little but more than she already does.
As time goes on he manages thaw her frozen heart and help her to move on. Just when she thinks that she has lost him for good he comes back and she realises that he is what she has needed all along.
Safe to say that with all good Christmas stories they love happily ever after.
As a side note, the random articles that are dotted throughout this book from the local paper, The Daily Trumpet, are an absolute diamond and hilarious in their own right.
It’s that time of year again when we start to say hello to winter. In the past I have never been much of a fan but as I have grown older winter has seem to become a special time of year for me.
I love everything that winter brings, the early nights in front of a roaring fire with loved ones, the crisp air and the golden leaves, wrapping up warm, new coats, gloves, hats and scarves. I love to walk Jack in the cold dark evernings when it is so peaceful out becuase everyone is tucked up all warm in their homes.
There is something very magical about this time of year and I for one am really starting to appreciate it.
