This was one of my Secret Santa gifts from Gemma at Musings of a Gem, I love it, and the fact that it is home-made is even better.
And from a good friend of mine I got these cute tea cup and saucers and this adorable sign which will be hung up next year for sure.
The time between Christmas and New Year was spent relaxing and generally doing nothing. If I'm honest it was lovely, although it went way too quickly. I was lucky enough not to have to go into work in-between, it was so nice having all that time to myself.
The bridge was up, not very often you get to see that.
We see in the New Year in London on the Embankment.
We walked along the river from Tower Bridge to find our spot for the evening. It was a lovely walk, a lot of the bridges were illuminated by coloured lights, and I'm always up for seeing the sites of London.
Although the fireworks were amazing so it was well worth it, even if at times they were clouded by smoke.
The atmosphere was incredible. It's something we have said about doing many times before so I'm glad we went and can now say we have experienced it.
So here we are, another year. Bring it on 2013.
Hope you all have a very happy new year.
