I have been an utterly useless blogger recently. I don’t expect that it worried too many of you but I feel bad about being so rubbish. Suffice to say that by the end of January I will be much better (the manuscript will be in the hands of my editor and out of my late night fevers) and until then I will stick to my new years resolution to write on here at least once a week.
In the spirit of welcoming in the new year (and saying goodbye to the past year) I thought I would let you know some of my favourites pieces of December by creating a list of highlights (I’d love to hear your December high points so post away in the comments section to your hearts content!):
Sending my parents here for a January get away.
Eating far too much of this butter.
Treating ourselves to this restaurant for my mum’s birthday.
Being involved in this charity bash.
The effortless indulgence of this butterscotch sauce.
Popping down to my local for the odd post-shopping cocktail.
Reading her raw, poetic books (inspirational reading for every memoirist).
Seeing this guy in his last concert.
Indulging in over-priced pints here and feeling like I was back in a country pub.
Watching this film with 3D glasses on and not feeling at all embarrassed.
Feeling the rib-sticking goodness of this restaurant’s cavatelli.
Surviving a frigid bike ride to end up at this spot for unbeatable pancakes.
Embracing the joy of an utterly cheesy spa day here.
Speaking to a room full of shockingly engaged adolescents here.
Cheers to 2011 and I hope you all have a fabulous time ringing in 2012 around the world. What’s on your list?
