Happy New Year

Happy New Year!

I haven't been around much, trying not to force it, just write as it comes..

As usual, I spent the Christmas/New Years period down at the beach eating too much good food and drinking more than usual (a friend drinks Campari with soda water and orange and has turned me to the same).  It was great to get away and I sincerely hope one day I am writing to you from the beach I long to live by.

But now I am back and back to work on Monday, too.  I've chosen not to be 'depressed' about it.  I have a good job and a lot of great things to be thankful for.  That, and I've decided 2013 is going to be an amazing year after a less than fun 2012.

This year, I have plans to exercise daily, and mostly gently, say Hara Hachi Bu as a reminder befre each meal (taken from this book I read over Summer - I recommend it!), make my back room an amazing personal space I can escape to, do more after work and focus on my home and making it more of one (it's still quite bare).

Do you have plans for 2013?

I hope you had a wonderful holiday break and I look forward to sharing more food with you over the next 12 months.

Stay well,
Nat x


  1. love that photo - captures the holiday feeling perfectly.
    i was hoping 2013 was going to be a good year, but so far, not so good, for us here in southern Tassie!

    1. I have 100 photos like that .. I love looking back at them.
      I have been thinking of all the people in Tassie. Hopefully it can only get better xx
