Happy New Year

I know a little late but better late than never. It's been a while since I was last here but life sometimes just gets away from you.

I do have this photo to share with you:




My birthday cake was made by my wonderful mother-in-law.

Yes I've hit one of those milestones. If you'd told me when I was 20 that at 40 I'd be happily married, with 2 children, 3 cats, 1 dog and totally surrounded by all things fibery I would have scoffed. Admittedly I had no idea what I wanted at that time other than to rock climb (which has fallen by the wayside).

But I am content with my life. I have all I need, a wonderful family (including the furry ones), a house, food and clothing and more than enough fibery goodness for a lifetime. Of course I do have dreams, for my family, myself (more yarn :)) and my house but dreams give us a reason to keep going and make us who we are.

The following is my favourite quote shared by Romi a few Mondays ago in her musings:

"Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; but remember that what you now have was once among the things only hoped for." - Epicurus

 Well I'm off ro prepare for my guests.

Keep smiling :-)
