Good bye 2013, Hello 2014.

As you read this, New Zealand is already embracing the new year of 2014. Here in the UK we are planning how to welcome it in, getting into our glad rags (in after the last two we experienced – 2013 on the Southbank, and 2012 drinking celebratory Sake in Japan – I’ll probably settle for fluffy PJs this year) and thoughts are beginning to turn to the new dawn.


London, New Years Day 2013 


Both personally and blog ‘professionally’, it’s been a wonderful year.

Thank you.


Blogging for me this year can be summed up in the word community. 2013 has been a year of afternoon teas, Tweetups, discovering there are more nooks and crannies of London than even I thought were possible, many many cups of tea, cooking, baking, brunching and some really wonderful new friends, blog and otherwise. So many more things never made it to being blogged, but that’s life, hey?




Here’s to 2014 – may it be wonderful for you!
