New Year

Happy New Year dear blogging friends. Thank you for your lovely wishes .

I am sorry for my absence but with the combination of Christmas, ill mother and daughter doing her finals life has been hectic.

I am not making a New Years resolutution but instead choosing a word Happiness.

I had a great New Years Eve with friends and my husband surprised me with a weekend away at Carton House. I would highly recommend it.  I love how the old house and new design have been married so well together.  I had a spa treatment which I so enjoyed.  The staff are so friendly and helpful and their is a great sense of rapport between the staff which I always think is a good sign.

Hope you are settling into the new year. Have a lovely weekend.



Spa I had reflexology. I am not a facial fan.


Desert. Food was superb.

I sat beside this lovely fire reading my book

Of course I did not need to eat or drink anymore so it is serious health and fitness time at the moment.
This is the newer part of the hotel I will show you the older part in my next post.

This is not sponsored it is my own opinion.
