Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year


I really can't believe how fast this year has gone.  It just seems like yesterday that I was stood in the porch at our last home, taking this picture for one of my earlier blogs back in 2009. 

These little guys were part of our decorations year on year but I haven't been able to put them out this Christmas.  I couldn't find them.  I know roughly where they are - they are in a box.  It's the location of the box that's the puzzle. That's the trouble with moving house, things don't tend to stay where you saw them last.  I know they will turn up - eventually. 

2010 has turned into a year that none of us here at chateau Simply will forget in a hurry. It's left a large and sometimes painful dint in all of us.  But, we are all still together and we are going to get through this bad patch. We have each other and that's what matters.  There are people out there suffering pain and loss to such an extent that what we have been through is insignificant.  My heart goes out to them, especially today.   

I'd like to raise a glass to wish peace, happiness and goodwill to all.  Here's to a happier and prosperous 2011.  The year when some, if not all of our hopes and dreams can come true.

Bye for now

  1. I know this may sound a bit strange but I found your blog while trying to research some thimbles my mom gave me for Christmas. She is 99% sure they belonged to my great grandmother. I was wondering if I sent you a picture if you would be able to help give me some suggestions as to how I might find out where they were made and how old they are (or aren't). Is there a way I can email you? Thanks, Natalie
