Hello 2013!

I didn't intend to wait two weeks till I get back to you, but I needed some time to get sorted. Family is all back at their places, the house is quiet again. I got some fantastic books for Christmas and I just had to have some reading time.

I hope you all got well into the new year and looking forward to what future may bring. Let's hope it is a good year ahead for all of us.

Big plans on my side - if everything works out I'll be in Scotland in March. Exciting!
Take care,
Johanna

A beautifully arranged still life, captured beautifully. A great time of year to have a good supply of reading matter around. Like you, I am enjoying relaxing with some good books, favourite music and a stove working hard as it's cold and damp here in Scotland at the moment. Hope we manage to provide some good weather for you when you visit!

I can think of no better way to spend some leisure time than what you've shown here Johanna, a good book, a glass of wine, aaahhh!
Mary got an eReader for her Christmas, now she has the hang of downloading books onto it, she's loving it, for myself I still like the feel of a book or newspaper in my hands, and I'd substitute a wee dram for the wine.
Hope you manage to get your trip to Scotland in, Runrig got anything to do with it? Wink

You make it look so inviting Johanna, I used to read everyday in life when I travelled by train to work and it's been ages since I read a book, prefer the book tapes or discs where an actor reads the book to me. Lazy I suppose,I can do something else while I listen, you can't do that holding a book.
