wow your decorations are amazing, please send your mum to my house next year to do mine!
I always think Christmas and new year can be a real balancing act -
It's lovely to party and celebrate, and sometimes its lovely to curl up quietly with a good book!
I hope you have a very happy 2008, and can't wait to hear all about it. xx

Have a lovely 2008! (I am with you on the socialising thing, my husband does it loads but it wears me out too!)

See I love going to other peoples houses for dinner but having them at mine stresses me out beyond belief!! We have it cut down to two major entertainings a year now. One of which is on Saturday!! ARRGHHHH

What a beautiful post! I love what your Mum did with decorating your Christmas table. I love doing just that, although I managed to forget to photograph our table this year. I shall "borrow" her dangling ornaments idea! And acting in costume ... we did that as well! Please see my website's blog page for photos. I'm delighted to tell you that "Fragile Shadow" sold over the holidays! So, thank you for that image, Vanessa and HAPPY NEW YEAR! Here's to rest and reality ... This morning, I'm off to a figure painting session with friends.

I so hear you!

My husband doesn't understand why I seem to be having such a good time and then need to crawl under a rock for a week. By the end of the Christmas New Years' swirl of delightfu; activity I was the grumpiest person on earth.

Wishing you a spectacular 2008.

Hi,
Hi, I´m Vanessa's Mum. We had had such fun with all the Berwick crowd. Dogs, twins, more children, real vicars and loads of friends.
Christmas is an exhausting affair, but one to be loved for those who are loved. We really enjoyed decorating the table and thanks to Hugo for filling it with such fantastic food.
What fantastic photos!!!!!! Another new career?
