New Year Plans

I do find the New Year an exciting time as we look ahead and plan for the coming year. Perhaps it's really a winter thing and I'm just looking forward to some warmer weather! Anyway here's a quick review of where we are and what we're expecting this year.

Bikes - Viv's bike project is still ongoing although has been on hold in recent weeks. She tells me her garage has been invaded by penguins and polar bears and is too cold for human occupation. I fear a scene of slaughter, full of penguin feathers, when we restart next week!

Travel - no long trip this year as we're reluctant to leave the aged parents for more than two or three weeks. We'll just have to go away more often! First outing is in a weeks time when we resume snorkelling and winter sun but this time in the Maldives. We're cruising around the islands in a small boat so internet access will be severely limited. Hopefully we'll get a few posts up, perhaps every 3-4 days. Mother in law wants us to take her away in April/May but we don't know where yet. We hope to get in two bike trips this summer. Firstly to the Alps in June or July and then perhaps Croatia in September. Nothing is definite though and we may decide to do something totally different!

Caravan - we really want to spend more time there this year. PLEASE let's have some good weather this summer so we can really make the most of all Pembrokeshire has to offer.

Photography - I've really enjoyed my photography in the last year so here's my Christmas present:

I'll still be using the compact camera as well but this new digital slr should enable me to take a greater variety of and better photos. I did a one day introductory workshop in photography last weekend here and will be doing a day on landscape and travel photography in March.

Flyfishing - this is LB's baby. As you know he enjoys his sea fishing but he has always fancied fly fishing. I'm encouraging him as while he fishes I can go off and practice my photography in peace!

Walking - We'll be building up our strength on the hills of the Brecon Beacons with the aim of going up Snowdon by the end of the year. We haven't done any serious hill walking for years but have always enjoyed it. It just so lovely to have the time for it and the fitness to take it up again.

Home - Decorate the upstairs rooms and have a major clearout of all the junk in the attic and spare bedroom. This is a big priority to complete before the weather improves and we get distracted. Needless to say we're also hoping to enjoy our new garden and improve it even more.

The only question is- will we have time for it all? Watch this space!
