Happy New Year

Heavens! It is over a month since I last wrote. And what a month.

Handmade Market. Creating orders. Preparing for Christmas. Yet more rain – this time in the form of a flood which has destroyed fences and flood gates. It was a terrible shock to see what a night of rain can result in. Our Christmas wish list quickly changed from fanciful extravagances to probably the most original item Santa has ever seen – Fences. Sometime this year 2011 we will see the destruction repaired.

The newest fencing style - thatched fencing!!!

Christmas was a very quiet but very happy day. Boxing Day we hit the shops early for a wander around – sheets and discount calendars. Then back to work in preparation for our big trip to LA. There is so much to do and so much to think about. So much to create and so many words to write, think about and then re-write. But this time next month, it will be almost over and we will almost be on our way back home again after our very big adventure.

So here we are on the second day of 2011. I wish you a very happy, healthy and adventure filled 2011.
