Happy New Year Blabber!

Hey Everyone,
Sorry I have been so absent from posting during December. I have been very busy with lots of social occasions and Christmas etc and things tended to get a little bit busy. I am now back and refreshed and excited to start blogging more regularly from now on.

I hope everyone has had an amazing start to 2012.

Christmas was crazy and to be honest I am so glad that it is over! Boxing day I am usually out shopping the sales like a mad woman but I was so exhausted this year that I slept all day. The thing is on Christmas day we have a huge day with so much crammed in that we literally don't stop. Up at 5am and rushing for breakfast followed by visiting the cemetery's where the graves lie of loved ones past. We then hot foot it up the East Coast of Tasmania to my Mum's Sisters house (around a 2 hour drive), have a huge seafood and traditional Christmas lunch then we hightail it back down south (another 2 hour drive) and host around 30 for Dinner. Christmas Day usually ends sometime early on Boxing Day Morning. Boxing Day we have friends and people we didn't get to see the day before over again. It's all very draining!

New Years Eve was very quiet. I honestly couldn't have thought of anything worse than being in big crowds surrounded by drunk hooligans watching fireworks. Something tells me I am getting old! Instead we went to my Cousins house for a lovely dinner and helped celebrate her Husbands 40th Birthday. We were home at 9.30, mainly because I was worried about the puppies if anyone started letting fireworks off in the park lands down below. Here's where the story gets really pathetic, when the clock struck midnight and everyone else was screaming Happy New Year I was in bed!

New years day was great. I got to catch up with all my relatives at my Uncles 60th Birthday and have a good chat with my cousins who were home for the holidays from Queensland. It's always great to see them.

On January 2nd I went to The Taste of Tasmania which is a part of the annual Summer Festival here in Tasmania. Basically it all coincides with The Sydney To Hobart Yacht Race (which I love).

Tasmania is known for it's amazing food and produce especially it's fruit and seafood. The Taste of Tasmania is Basically a big food festival showcasing some of Tasmania's best food and wine. On Monday I spent much of the day there enjoying things such as Pink Eye Potatoes With Sweet Chilli and Sour Cream, Huon Valley Mushrooms with Chilli Plum Sauce, Thai Chilli Calamari with Palm Sugar, Mixed Tasmanian Berries amongst other things!

I hope you have all had a great holiday season whether you celebrate Christmas or not. I hope 2012 brings all you want and more. I look forward to getting to know you all more throughout the year.

I want to thank each and every single one of you for your support with my Blog. I honestly still can't believe that anyone would want to read anything I write. As many of you know I have multiple illnesses which keep me confined to home a lot and this blog gives me an outlet to talk about the things I love such as makeup and beauty products. Again thank you so much for your support and friendship.
