New Year's Eve Fun

Yesterday we celebrated the last day of 2011 with lunch at Berwick Lodge - a beautiful manor house with roaring fires and 15 acres of grounds for the children to run around in.  We discovered beautiful outbuildings, empty fountains and a huge playhouse, but my favourite was the orchard where we played hide and seek, chase and kick the can.  For the first time in 5 years we didn't stay at home during the evening and saw in 2012 at a friends house party which was fab!

We will be heading out for our traditional New Year's Day walk later.  I love the start of the year - with the darkest part of winter left behind and the promise of warmer days ahead, the making of resolutions and the new, spotless calendar on the wall.

Happy New Year!
