top of the morning to you

Greetings all,
Happy New Year!!  As my piggie calendar tells me it's 1.1.11 so a top of the morning to you all.
 Truth be told, i've had a migraine for past 3 days, but blogging & housework in small doses was possible.  What a joy to wake up to a 90% migraine free head + all these wonderful, meaningful comments - you guys are the greatest, i've never thought of myself as 'inspirational' i'm just an Army wife & mummy who sews a lot!!
 My chipper handsome soldier is making pancakes for the children . . .
 & i should start removing the upsidedown birds from the Christmas tree.
 It's hard to put away super fun decorations like this Oxfam reindeer from our gorgeous friends Rob & Lisa (thanks you two!!)
 But the recycling needs to go out, 'twas a good Christmas (says me, the non drinker & starting today . . . non chocolate eater).
So if you're in Australia, no doubt you're having a scorcher today or humid blast of hot Summer rain, we're swimming our cares away!!  Wishing you all the best in 2011, love Posie

How funny, my hubby made us pancakes for breaky this morning from our kitchenaid mixer too (cream coloured one though although I am partial to red).
Well, back to painting and rearranging!

Migraines are the pits aren't they especially when they linger. Hope you are feeling better soon. Luckily cool change came early yesterday and when we came out of the movies there was a cool sea breeze so NYEve wasn't the hot night everyone was expecting. I'm not eating chocolate either, and got up early for a walk this morning we will see how long that lasts hopefully at least until the kids go back to school. My decs are all down and that's it for housework today.

Happy New Year Jennie and clan. We are lying on sofa with heating on full, watching the new Upstairs Downstairs on Sky+. At least the bits of rain over the last week have washed the last of the snow away in London! Looking forward to a productive blogging year!
