2015 marks a new phase of our lives. We have now sold our company (well, I assume so as we haven't heard anything to the contrary from the solicitors!) so we are now free agents. Gone is the responsibility attached to running your own business, the main thing being maintaining the jobs, and therefore livelihoods, of 18 people.
2014 went out with a bit of a fizzle, rather than a bang. We never do anything on New Years Eve, and I always moan about it, so this year Gordon planned a nice meal and wine tasting in the big city (brno) and an overnight stop in a fancy hotel
Long story short, Gordon fell over in the snow in the afternoon, could hardly walk and was in quite a bit of pain, and I made it through to the second course of an 8 course meal with a stinking headache, before feeling ill and not eating any more (The creamy chestnut soup was the killer!). So we left before pud, and were in bed by 11:00! I certainly got my money's worth from the bathroom, if not the bed!
New Years day was thus a quiet affair, spent in front of the fire in jim-jams, watching films and getting on with quilting my tea cups quilt. I guess I've done about 2/3 of it, and my quilting has improved vastly from the start (around the cups) to the latter stages! Although I still have issues with even stitch length and keeping a straight line. Lets call it organic shall we?
We have been asked several times, what are we going to do with our extra time, now we are retired. More sewing doesn't seem to be a satisfactory answer for most people! We have no specific plans, but I do intend to try and get a little fitter, and lose some of this weight that has appeared from nowhere these last few months. And we will see what opportunities present themselves! You never know, I might even blog a bit more often!
So, Happy 2015 to everyone - I hope it's good to you and that your wishes come true
