Happy New Year!

Here we are in 2015! Let's hope this will be a good one!

As you may or may not know December 31st was my Birthday :)

During the day I was working, but thankfully we got to go home early due to the new year celebrations so it wasn't so bad.

Once I got home I opened all my cards and presents and was treated to some wonderful gifts! I got two Pandora charms for my bracelet, a crystal nail file (I have wanted one for ages!), Season 7 of Big Bang on DVD, CD, A beautiful Rosie's pantry tea set, some money - loads of stuff in fact!

On top of this three of my friends from Yorkshire made there way up to Scotland and stayed with us for a couple of nights, as did one of our friends who lives close by. David cooked us dinner, home made Chilli (yum) and to finish off Banoffee Cheesecake (yum yum!).

After that we sat around playing some board games and before we knew it is was almost time to see in the new year! We all had a great night, and it was a perfect way to spend my birthday :)

The next day we visited Edinburgh, and today we took a trip in to Glasgow before they headed home. I am already looking forward to their next visit :)

As you can imagine with all this going on I have had very little time to stitch, but I did manage to squeeze a few stitches in to Tribal Orca...


Not much to see yet but it's a good start to the new year :) Sadly this photo doesn't show the fabric so well, it is much bluer than it looks here. I will try to get a better picture next time.
