Happy 2013 ~Lucky for Some!

Hi everyone, I hope you all had spectacularly lovely Christmases. Mine was better than expected, though not without its highs and lows.
The weather has interrupted Internet connections for us and digital TV has also suffered, so I have been offline for some days.  

Thanks to everyone for their lovely Christmas messages, cards and letters.
Much appreciated.


I will be on blog break, again, for a while to cope with the number of commitments recently thrust upon me, but I intend to do some blog visiting.  So I wish you all a Happy and fulfilled New Year. 


  1. Amazing Madeleine!! Wishing you a most peaceful and creative and utterly amazing 2013!!! My broadband and tvplayer suffered horribly over the festivities but all is ok now! And I've decided the Indian helpdesk people are wonderful and the ones in Scotland are just really rude, particularly Kevin! :-( Raspberries to Kevin and big cheer to Ravi and co!! LOL!! I am rambling now!! Happy happy New Year!! Take care

  2. Enjoy your break, Madeleine - and wishing you all the very best for 2013 :-)

  5. Happy New Year Maddy.


  6. Have a brilliant year, Madeleine, with all the best of health, success and happiness. x

  13. Thanks everyone.
    I have been busy completing various tasks and duties and studying.
    I have also had a throat bug, though feeling much better now. x.

  14. I completely understand needing that break to catch up on other commitments. I'm trying to balance that right now.
