Looking Up

2009 has been a tough year for me, for regular followers I don't have to go into details. For new followers, You'll just have to take my word for it. But with 2009 almost over, it's time to start looking up, and thinking about all the good things that next year will hold.
To start with there is Jamie Oliver - well, 20 hours of Jamie courtesy of Mr Sew Funky who brought me his box set for Christmas!

Then there are the new friends I've made since moving to Pukekohe. Friends like Helena who gave me some lovely flowers, just to brighten my day!

Then there's the vegetables. Mr Sew Funky seems to have found his green fingers, and the tomato plants are showing promising signs of fruit!

More immediate is the broccoli - this beauty will probably be on our dinner plates this week!

Last but definitely not least, there is Henry. Henry is one of the surviving kittens and he's become quite attached to me, as I have to him...
