Er when is it too late to say Happy New Year?

Is there an accepted point at which it is not on to say Happy New Year ? – has anyone set a date or does it just get more and more embarassing until you stop.

Through circumstances beyond my control, which most things seem to be nowadays, I haven’t updated the blog since Christmas. So Happy New Year to everyone, I hope 2014 will be everything you want it to be.

I love Christmas and the New Year and get tired and emotional – oh and fat, over the festivities. So January is time to consolidate, pull my socks up and make lots of soup. The year has started well, if not dry, and I’m looking forward to cooking, gardening, finding exciting books and sharing them, writing, dancing and at some point relaxing.

Before I start getting sensible, my friend Norma and I are off to a spa to start the year right, it is our yearly treat and I can’t tell you how much we love it. Then I’m back to a few book auctions and getting down to writing.

So I’ll try to keep up to date with the blog, sharing recipes, books, gardening tips I’ve found. You can keep me to it – meanwhile pass me the massage oil
