A New Year and a Winner!

I thought it would be wonderful to start the new year off with a blog post, a sort of sign of my good intentions to write more in 2017. I also have a longing to get more in touch with my readers so I have also set up a Facebook page for the blog (I do hope you'll join me there). 
AND of course I hope I can do more giveaways!
A new year, a new day and the same horrid battle with my poor mental health. An ill brain doesn't care if you wanted to go for a cobweb blowing hike in the Mournes or a few productive hours at the Allotment. So here I am, still in my pyjamas sort of watching TV at 6pm.

I'm so lucky though as Toby has been asleep and ever so cuddlesome all day, up on the sofa with me. He stayed up really late for a pup and saw in the new year; he's paying for it now.

Andrew has declared today to be an official films and pyjamas day with much herbal tea and naps. He demands I do as little as possible. What did I do to deserve him? - he's so understanding.

And then there's my giveaway and giving gifts lifts my spirits. Thanks to those who entered!
Here we go with our winner -
Drum roll please!!

I'll be in touch xxx

Hugs and best wishes

  1. Carrie, I had no idea you did a blog (I am so dim). I will have to do some back reading :)
    Hats off to you for being so brave! I have started blogs twice but then get so anxious about my words being out there that I delete the whole damn thing. I applaud your bravery (and admire your hikes with your wonderful companions). Here is to a new year of adventure, growth, and more good days!

  2. Hi Carrie and Happy New Year to you, Andrew and Toby. Sounds like you opened the New Year with a perfect start! Mum has come to London to celebrate and we are now snuggled up on the settee watching Grace and Frankie on Netflix! I am looking forward to reading more of your blog this year and will pop over to Facebook. I never know whether I ought to start a page for mine or not - you can let me know what you think of it. Here's to all good things for you and yours in 2017. LX

  3. I automatically share my blog posts on Facebook, Google+ and Twitter where I also add extra photos etc. It's good to give people plenty of choice.

  4. Happy New Year! Take care, Flighty xx

  5. Congrats to Chelsea! And a happy happy 2017 to you, Carrie. That Toby is so photogenic whether he's posing or not. Kiss him for me!
