New Years Day 2017

I ended 2016 and started 2017 in the most perfect way possible …….
Bertie Boo
……. with Iris, Bertie and my daughter Lu for a New Year Sleepover.  The little ones came over to play on Saturday, to give Mum and Dad a chance to get the house straight and have five minutes to themselves.

Bertie is too young for a sleepover, but he tried his best during the day, bless him.  I really could eat him!
But Iris is quite a dab hand at a girlie night and she stayed over!  In the afternoon I let her look at the treasures in my jewellery box.

We had our favourite lunch and tea, a very splashy bath, watched Room On The Broom, all together and then Lu and I drew lots for who would tell Iris a bedtime story (or two or three).  It was heaven!

And then, there she was all bright eyed and bushy tailed to wake Auntie LuLu and I up on the first morning of a brand new year …………and, it don’t get any better than that! 
So, no New Years Resolutions for 2017, after 2016 all I want are 365 normal, humdrum days, where nothing comes to bite me on the bum …………… BUT if anything dares, I promise I will bite it back with gnashers so sharp it really won’t know what bit it!!!
