Traditionally the DP and his siblings commence to block up the phone lines as soon as Big Ben (in London) has chimed in the New Year. And they all hit the Malt. Cant stand the stuff.
This year the DP is being the Lighthouse Museum's Official Photographer at a wedding there. So I shall be unplugging the phone before heading to bed.
The Happy Couple have today had to face pouring rain and gales. Should set em up for life. Now it is calmer and dry. So their fireworks should go off with a bang rather than a fizzle.
Just hope they have warned the Shipping.
So, reflections on the year past.
Well, its been a full one!
Kids Activities have been great fun. We have done Pirates, Sea Birds, Halloween and Creatures of the Night - including Santa.
Art group = educational. Who wears silly hats and who doesnt.
Museum of Scottish Lighthouses. Interesting.
House is still standing as is the Shedudio.
Depicting beautifully the seasons. Our wee hoose in the winter and the shedudio in the Summer.
All in all its been a lovely year. Like everyone there have been downsides. But now its time to look forward.
I guess one major item of this year is that I have become an artist, still a small a.... But selling. Still in pleasurable shock about this. Along with this come the scary commissions.
Bloody nightmare they are.
So this is on the drawing board for 2014.
As soon as I get permission from the photographer. Although there is no way anyone would recognise it as being from that by the time I have finished with it.
FUN! Lets hope 2014 is the same for all of us.
