Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to all my readers!

Ring out wild bells to the wild sky,
The flying cloud, the frosty light:
The year is dying in the night;
Ring out, wild bells, and let him die.
Ring out the old, ring in the new,
Ring, happy bells, across the snow:
The year is going, let him go;
Ring out the false, ring in the true (Alfred, Lord Tennyson)

Even though it’s the New Year, the twelve days of Christmas don’t finish until Twelfth Night on January 6, so I thought I’d share some Christmassy photos.

It’s the time of year for winter walks, when the morning dawns clear, bright and frosty:

A treat after a bracing walk: lebkuchen and a cappuccino, made using the milk frother that was a Christmas gift from my mother. If you’re a coffee drinker, I recommend that you treat yourself to a milk frother. It adds a special touch to a cup of coffee and I love being able to make cappuccinos at home now!

Happy 2015 everyone!

  1. Happy New Year! Your ornaments are so beautiful. 🙂 Makes me feel slightly embarrassed about mine at home, 90% of which are 10-20 year old ornaments that were made when my sisters and I were in grade school (we even have ones from kindergarten….*shameface*).

    Cheers to a great year ahead!

    • Thank you! 🙂 I have been enjoying switching on the Christmas tree lights each morning. It looks so pretty and festive that it will be a shame when we have to put the decorations away on January 6.

      I hope you have a great year too!

  2. Hi Grace. Happy New Year! Beautiful post. I really like all the photos. Sorry I have been away for so long. I have a good excuse though. I am getting married and am busy planning it. I am not going to be updating my blog for a while. I may do a short post soon though. Take care! xx
