HELLO 2007!


Yes hello 2007 (TOUCHDOWN!!) and goodbye horrible nasty 2006. To say I'm happy to see the back of it is an understatement!!!

I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas - I certainly did. I got loads of presents, most of it being books and more books - I'm a big fan of sci-fi and fantasy - most of the books you see here are fantasy novels.......

Plus a few Calendars...you'd never guess I love cats would you? hee hee.....

The rest of my presents were made up of DVD's - I got 'The Chronicles of Narnia' four disc extended edition, 'Pirate's of the Carribean - Dead Man's Chest', 'X-Men: The Last Stand' and 'Firefly' the complete series (which I've been meaning to get, as Husband took the copy we had), so I've done very well this year!

I bought a game called 'Apples to Apples' a couple of days before Christmas, thinking it wouldn't be much good, but how wrong I was - it's a fantastic game and a good purchase, as it had us all in bits with laughter on Boxing Day. Along with playing 'UNO' we were laughed out by the end of it all! Fudge liked the box very much. Fudge is a very big cat and he thought it a very good idea to try and cram himself into the lid of the 'Apples to Apples' game......

And didn't do a very good job! Awww....what a cutie!

I didn't do too bad staying in by myself last night - I had my DVD's to watch, Fudge to cuddle and Ma to keep me company. My best mate invited me over to her house for a huge gathering with all our other mutual friends (which is something me and DH always did at New Year) - I knew that DH was going to be there - I couldn't face it. I felt it contradictory to try and be happy and bright and say in a cheery voice 'HAPPY NEW YEAR' when I didn't feel happy in the slightest. And DH insists on calling me 'mate' whenever he sees me which I can't stand. 'Hello mate, how you doing?' He has said that on more than one occasion and it irritates me to distraction. 'NO! I'm not your 'mate', I'm your Wife, or have you bloody forgotten that fact already?!?'

Anyway - it's now 2007 and I feel deep in my bones that this is going to be a good year for me - if not, I'm going to have a bloody good time finding out! I hope each and every one of you have a very, very Happy New Year - and thanks to each and every one of you for reading my blog. You have all been so good to me and I feel like I've known you all for many years, especially 'Singular Stitches', 'CatandTurtle', 'Ali B', 'Stitcherw', 'Rowyn', 'Lili', 'BlissXStitches', 'Leila', 'Rowyn', 'Juanita' , 'Sue' and 'Carol' - THANK YOU all so much for your kind words, your friendship and for making this blog worthwhile. If I can be of help to any of you, you just let me know. My only resolution for 2007 is to blog more regularly, to leave comments on your blogs and actually put some more stitching on here

Take care everybody, and thanks again! xx

Hi Heidi!
Sure 2006 hasn't be sweet, has it? I won't wish you a better 2007: it can only be better. I wish you the best of years! A 2007 Phoenix year, my friend! I can see it coming and it fills me with hope and wonder.
I have lost all my email addresses, so I can't send you a personal mail unless you send it back to me?...
Lots of hugs and positive thoughts to accompany you throughout this year.

I hope 2007 proves to be a better year for you and all of us. We bought Apples to Apples for Christmas this year too and have had an absolute blast playing it.

I hope 2007 is so good to you that you can't even remember 2006!!

Fudge is just the sweetie! And don't they just not realize their size?? Itchey has tried in vain to get herself inside a VHS cassette sleeve!

Here's to a fantastic 2007 for you, sounds like it got off to a good start. Fudge looks very cute in the box, my cats love crawling into boxes too. Glad you got some fun SciFi/Fantasy stuff, they tend to be what I enjoy as well, in fact I got Pirates for Christmas also.

Hope to hear from you soon.

Hey GF, good to have 2006 behind us + 2007 giving us a new start.

Lovely gifts. By the way, any C-H-O-C-O-L-A-T-E gifts????

Give Fudge a pat for me -- such a cutie kittie
