Twelve Days of Christmas – Day 8

January 1, 2014 — 25 Comments


Well here we are at the beginning of a new and exciting year. Thank you so much for all your lovely messages it has given me a fantastic start to what I hope will be a wonderful and eventful year for us all. I had a fun filled evening with Ellie last night and I hope it is a taste of what 2014 has to offer.


Ellie & Me


I love the idea of looking forward to the what the year is yet to uncover and wonder at every twist and turn that it presents me with.

I try to learn from my mistakes, reflect on past achievements and plan for what is to come, though you can never second guess fate, you can enjoy each moment as it happens and appreciate every opportunity that you find as the year unfolds.

I am not sure what 2014 will bring for me but I plan to meet it head on and relish every second of it 🙂

To kick start the year here is the eighth verse of my “Twelve Days of Christmas” challenge.

    Excellent! And great job on the eight maids a milking! 🙂 I’m not familiar with your family dynamics but I’ve heard you talk about a brother (or more) and I was wondering if the picture behind you in the video are your sister and brothers?


    I enjoyed reading your blog this year and look forward to more in 2014. Happy New Year!


    Eight sprightly maids. Neat! I hope you record the final day as well and keep it.


    Kicking off the new year in song… that’s the best way. 🙂


    I’m little confused here, don’t know which one is better, your singing or your drawing 😀 Is there any other hidden talent ? 😉

    Happy new year, wishing you health and prosperity 🙂

    PS – I’ve skipped some of the posts. Will go through them asap.


    Great job so far. Bad news is only 4 days left.


    Lovely. It looks from the photo as if you truly had a blast on New Year’s Eve. I hope each day of 2014 gets more and more exciting.

    What nice drawings!


    Brilliant Charlotte! We have been following the 12 days of Christmas every day and find your idea both original and enchanting !! Your art work is fab and it’s good to hear the voice returning to its beautiful self. Don’t work TOO hard though. Keep building it up gradually. 🙂 🙂


    I do wonder if you ever get any sleep, what with the drawings and the singing and the blogging and all the living in-between. Go gently.


    Fabulous. I like the fuller voice. The fireplace is a great setting.
