Hope all you out there have had a lovely Christmas (if you celebrate it) and great holidays (if you have had them). The perils of being self-employed and being ill before Christmas meant that I only managed about 36 hours off, but it was such a relaxing time I am feeling a bit more refreshed and raring to go, which is a good thing because my year looks to be full of opportunities… can’t wait to share more as the year goes on.
It is time for the traditional ‘what I did in 2013 mosaic’. I’ve been fiddling around on Flickr, selecting all my favourite makes of 2013, and discovered I finished exactly 51 things over the year – I was quite surprised about and very pleased – Almost one finish a week seems a pretty good average. Maybe I will try for 52 next year…!
I had so many favourites, it’s quite a big list…
