A Little Birdy Just Told Me.....

That the year has begun!!!!
Happy New Year everybody.... How are you all???
I hope that the holidays gave you all an opportunity to rest and revive and to prepare yourselves for all of the good things that I know 2009 will have in store...
I have been having a lovely time celebrating Christmas and the holidays. The weather has just been heavenly and I've been spending loads of time at the beach swimming and hanging out with friends. This week though it's back to reality - although in a good way - as my old friend, photographer Prue Ruscoe is in the region and we are spending the week photographing some lovely houses that will eventually make their way into the magazines. And my off-sider Nicky is back to work so the old gang is all together.
There's loads of good things in store for this year - in particular I'm turning 40 - and as Oprah says 40 is the new 30 (or was that 50 is the new 40!!!), so I'm looking forward to kicking up my heels and enjoying life to the full. Most excitingly - I'm heading to Paris in a few months to celebrate my birthday - a lovely way to herald in the next decade!
So welcome back all - I can't wait to share the love and laughs that 2009 has in store for us all...
