Happy New Year

I'm off to my (parents*) winter retreat for a few days (me, the Scottish one, my brother, my brother's rabbit, my father's dogs... and others) which I hope will be peaceful and idyllic - well there's nothing wrong with hoping. I have a suitcase full of Victorian novels and warm jumpers, a bottle of single malt waiting for me, and a chocolate reindeer for emergencies so think I have the basics covered. 

I hope that everyone reading this has something equally good to look forward to and that the New Year brings good things for all. 

*It's flats - we retreat to one small corner, but the picture has a pleasingly Mitford feel for someone who finished 'Christmas Pudding' on the bus home tonight


  1. Lucky you, all that peace and tranquilty and a suitcase full of books, looks and sounds idyllic, what more could a girl possibly crave?

    I live in the South of the UK and the weather here is distinctly wet and windy, although unseasonally mild, so let's just hope that we aren't going to suffer for it somewhere down the line!

    I hope that you have a great relaxing weekend and all the very best for 2012.

  2. Hope you have a lovely time! The chocolate reindeer sounds like just the thing. Happy New Year!

  3. Happy New Year to you, have a wonderful time while on holiday!

  4. What an amazing setting! I hope you have a lovely time there and a very Happy New Year!

  5. Happy New Year looks like the perfect place to curl up with a book or three!

  6. A very happy New Year! I just read Christmas Pudding myself, in time for the holidays.
