A huge hug and a massive Happy New Year to everyone who visits my blog :) I have a stat counter and it amazes me how many people visit every day - yesterday i had 187 original hits (more than 200 return visits!) and did you know if you search for nigella christmas rocky road my blog is the first link on google! MAD!! LOL
I am determined to make 2009 a better year than the last - we had so many problems and heartache last year i really want to take this year out to make my mark. Not sure what that is yet but its all part of the fun isnt it! :)
I also have some fab news on the creative front! The girls over at Its a Creative World invited me to join their team and i jumped at the chance. I have featured on their blog in the past doing renovations on furniture so i am more than happy to now be able to share a little more of my time and creativeness with them....Thank you girls!! xxx
This year im determined to keep a full diary too - ive started with the first pic of 365 for this year, Anna did this challenge last year and i always meant to join in but never got round to it. She isnt doing it this year but i will join in with the next challenge she sets - check out her blog for details.
Since this year is going to be a good one lets start it off by giving out a present - please leave a message in the comment section and i will send a little rak to the first name picked :D
