As this is my first post of 2016 I just wanted to start by saying a (very belated!) Happy New Year and thank you to everyone who has supported me in the last few months.

I had a wonderful evening watching the fireworks at a local display, then seeing in the New Year at home with my husband, Adrian, enjoying a few drinks and feeling very merry by the stroke of midnight.

The first week in January is a double celebration as my birthday is on the 5th.
I had an amazing day, which started off with a long walk in the beautiful winter sunshine, followed by a coffee and cake date with a few friends. I was lucky enough to receive some gift vouchers this year so I had fun trying on loads of clothes in the shops and came home with a few new items for my winter wardrobe.

In the evening Adrian and I ordered a take away and shared a bottle of Champagne.


During the last week I’ve also been planning and organising posts to feature in my blog, which I’m really looking forward to sharing with you.
Writing my own blog was something I’d wanted to do for quite a while and never had the courage to do so. After speaking to other Bloggers I decided to take the plunge and go for it and created Rosie Loves Life.
It’s still a work in progress and I’m sure I’ll learn a lot more along the way, but I’m really excited to see where 2016 will take me and where I’ll be this time next year.
