As I sit here vegetating on the settee I am thinking about Burns Night - January 20th in our case. We haven't even had our Christmas dinner and January is on my mind. I guess this is part of being an organised type of person - or a mad woman? We have had another successful year here in the village with the various activities, workshops, walks, fund-raisers and festivals. I have been involved with. We have made a healthy profit, secured a couple of grants and give-aways which mean the hall is being re-decorated as we speak and new carpets on order.
We will be planning 2018 in the New Year, developing what has worked and trying out new ideas we are toying with. As always, all we do is a team effort, each of us bringing some different aspect to the grand plan. I always say treat people as you would like to be treated - it's all down to how we are with others - and other people have helped us take our efforts to a level where we have received recognition.
As ever I have plans for the new year - will they work? will they happen? I'll know this time next year!
Watch this space.
Happy Christmas and best wishes for a healthy, happy 2018.

Slightly off-focus but the baubles arrived......so pleased with mine.
I think I will be doing some more over the next few days/weeks. I loved the atmosphere of the pottery where I collected the baubles - so many opportunities and creative ways to idle away the odd hour!

Yesterday we had a workshop in our village hall. The potter provided bisque baubles which we painted with ceramic paints and glazes.
As we speak they are being fired - I am so excited!
Can you guess which is mine?
