Merry Christmas to All,

It's that time of year- time to take a break. I'm finally at home after the long drive, which was much wetter than ever before. Luckily the roads were open and not too much water lying around. As I've said before- " I'll be home come hell or highwater."

I'm going to take a couple of weeks off blogging to just chill out and relax- plus I have some exciting things in store in the new year and have to prepare for them. Now that I think about it realistically, not too much relaxing will take place! 

I promise to get the QLD Food Blogger directory up in the new year, just waiting until after December to make sure everyone has had a chance to submit their details- wouldn't want anyone to miss out! If you want more details- go here. In true blogger style, some of you have babbled on for far too long- so I might have to do a bit of editing!

I'm so happy to be home so I can catch up with all my childhood friends and - of course, hang out with the fam. Christmas is one of my favourite times of year, and although it's not feeling too Christmassy- just yet (it was about 25 degrees cooler than usual yesterday!) I'm menu planning and thanks to all your suggestions, the ideas are finally flowing. It's looking like a cold Christmas lunch- lots of seafood,  some turkey, a terrine or two and plenty of pretty cocktails! More details and photos to come.

Now, I'm not normally mushy, HOWEVER, it is Christmas- and I want to say thanks to all my readers. All of you taking time out of your busy lives to read about my life, means the world to me. It really does. I still get super excited everytime I get a comment! 

Blogging and Twitter really has opened up an amazing world to me-  a world filled with wonderful people and kind hearts, lots of hilariousness and plenty of opportunities I would have never had otherwise! I have to say in the words of William Elliott Whitmore -

"And oh how it pleases me.
To be in such company.
And I'm so glad our paths have crossed."

And so - here's to another year! I want to wish you Merry Christmas and a really great New Year ! I hope you have a fabulous day- filled with love and laughter. Travel safely - see you/ talk to you next year!

P.s I'll still be on Twitter and would love to hear about all your Christmas plans let me know - obviously I'll be checking for comments! xx

"Drink your glasses to the bottom.
And toast me on another year.
Another year of hope.
Another year of holding on
And I hope I will see you soon.
And I'll be home come hell or high water.
And I know I will see you soon."

Merry Christmas! Hope you're having a great time being home and around people whom you love yet don't get to see quite as often as you'd like.

Looking forward to your Queensland food bloggers list as there's must for me to discover about our sunshine state.

Can't believe another year has flown by, but I've really enjoyed getting to know you through the course of it =)
