2012

2012 was a bad year for...

~ Quinces. A stormy April destroyed all the blossom and The Quince Tree produced only one rather shrivelled quince.
~ Crochet. None was produced. Not sure why - just didn't feel the urge. I did however unravel one of my projects because I had a better idea for it. Unfortunately that's as far as I've got so please don't expect any pictures of work in progress in the near future.

2012 was a good year for...

~ Being British. Jubilee jubilations followed by Olympic and Paralympic spectacle -loved it all.
~ Meeting fellow bloggers. The highlight of my year.
~ Eating cake. I enjoyed writing my Cake of the Month posts but now I feel the need for something a bit healthier, a Salad of the Month perhaps. 
~ Blog self esteem. When I wrote about the unpleasant email I received in October so many readers left me positive comments and emails that I was actually grateful to the person who sent it. Thank you once again to everyone who took the time to be nice :)
