Happy New Year from winter wonderland


It's shaping up to be one of the best New Year's house parties ever. We are in Åre, the largest (and best) ski resort in Sweden, staying with good friends. This was the view that greeted me this morning. I may not be posting a lot until 2010...

At the moment I'm just relaxing after a wonderful day on the slopes, about to go into the sauna, then dinner, some wine...saying goodbye to the Noughties in a manner which it certainly doesn't deserve. Although personally the last ten years have not been bad. They've passed too quickly, but then I guess that might just be an age thing...

So while still somewhat compos mentis, I wanted to wish a Very Happy New Year to all you lovely people who take the time time to read my musings. And leave you with a picture of me and Husband wearing our handsome and safe ski helmets...see you in 2010.

Or in the other languages spoken in our party:

Hauskaa Uutta Vuotta!

Gott Nytt År!
