Xmas in the UK!
Well, that's it, another year over and another one stretched before us an abundance of opportunities and experiences. I love the start of a New Year! It's more exciting to me than Christmas purely because of the buzz of new decisions, goals and personal growth.
For the Brimble family, Christmas 2012 was a rather quiet affair in our little market town in South West England. We gathered at my in-laws for lunch (along with my parents) which was really nice. As usual, my husband's mother went all out with the food - traditional roast turkey with all the trimmings, followed by more desserts than I could've possibly imagined or eaten!
Boxing Day was spent with friends and pretty much consisted of more food and drink being consumed...
My two favorite events this year occurred before and after December 25th - On the 21st, Mr Brimble and I travelled to London for a special Christmas lunch with a group of our friends. The venue? The infamous jazz club, "Ronnie Scotts"! This is my fourth visit to this fabulous place - an absolute must for jazz fans and lovers of good champagne and food. Dark and intimate, it's hard not to be there and not think wistfully of Frank Sinatra and Ella Fitzgerald.
That's my Xmas done - bring on the New Year!
