calendars and reflections


And so here we are, the final day of 2014.

I promised to come back on the weekend with some link love but … well, relaxation and family took over. We’ve chilled, read, watched, lounged and it’s been grand.

So I’ve saved that post perhaps for this weekend.

In the meantime, a bit of a bumper post to round off the year.

First, two calendar downloads for 2015.

The first, is the DIY calendar which I’ve done the past couple of years. There’s a spot at the top to include your own images, children’s drawings, post-it notes, scribbles or whatever takes your fancy.

The second is the calendar with a Dr Seuss quote to inspire you each month.

These are the top 5 posts for 2014 according to WordPress. None of them are from this year but are mainly downloads from years past. And that’s OK, nothing wrong with longevity.

And that is 2014. You’ve been grand. Nothing to ostentatious or dramatic but it was a big year of settling into a new job and a new routine. I think of it as something like a gap year, preparing us for perhaps a bigger and better 2015.  The eldest heads off to high schools [gasp!] and for the rest of us and for Lime Lane, who knows? Opportunity awaits.

[In the meantime, I will be doing my damnedest to get this fixed today!]

Happy new year!

It’s Christmas Eve ~ the most wonderful time of the year. After waiting rather impatiently for this day to arrive, I’m now madly panicking at the list of things I need to do today.

But there is nothing for it but to embrace the holiday spirit and what better way than with some Christmas music. Naturally I’ve turned to my old friend Spotify to deliver the festive goods with their classic playlist.

While you’re listening, perhaps wrapping some presents or whipping up some festive fare in the kitchen, impress your friends with this series of facts about holiday songs and don’t forget to read aloud ‘Twas the night before Christmas.

And I want to take this moment, too, to wish you all a wonderful and safe Christmas and may 2015 be everything you want it to be.

I’ll be back this weekend with some zesty reading to finish off the year!

christmas cheer … in a glass


It’s a festive time of year and it’s always nice to put a little something special in your glass. I’m trying to convince the Mr to buy me one of those lovely glass drink dispensers with the tap at the bottom but the query is always “But what will you put in it?”

How about one of these concoctions?

And in case you’re wondering, I have a whole Pinterest board of drinks here.
