Welcome to Victoria Peel via here and Frugal Wench via Bloglovin.
Well, we managed to stay up long enough to see in the New Year. Church bells rang, a fantastic firework display was watched from our conservatory. We sent and received messages from DS, then missed others as we went to bed around 12:20 am.
Back to normal for a while until visitors arrive in a week. Soaked a whole packet of dried peas to make soup for lunch. Didn't have any ham stock or bacon so made it as a basic pea soup then added vegetables, frankfurter, stock cubes, and a chunk of garlic and herb Boursin cheese:
Onwards and upwards we go into the new year, not knowing what it will hold (except DS and FDiL's wedding) but hoping for good health, happiness and contentment!
