A New Day and a New Year

Happy New Year everyone and welcome to 2014!!!  Hope this one goes somewhat slower than the last.

Last night Mick and I went round to some friends for a meal, none of us are that bothered about celebrating New Year so we decided to have a quite night in round theirs and it was lovely, very relaxed, great conversation and lovely food - Nick trying out new recipes which all went down very well I have to say, we couldn't believe how quick the night went.  We watched the fireworks on TV wished each other Happy New Year then Mick and I headed home.  We climbed into bed at 1.15am and I deliberately didn't set my alarm and opened my eyes at 9.40am totally refreshed and feeling good :) (I was driving last night so no chance of a hang over) - an excellent start to the new year.
So today has seen the fridge cleaned out after the mass of Christmas food that has been in there, now empty and waiting for the food shop tomorrow, and the first of my Daily photos taken...........yes I am trying it again lol one day I will complete this challenge.  The theme is to be 'My home'  mainly the garden but an option to do indoors as well.  I shall be posting the photos on a new blog I have set up purely for my photos.  It is here if you fancy a look.  I have been thinking about a photo blog for a while as this blog has become more of my rambling blog and I think the photography gets lost in it (well it does for me) so the other blog is for my inspiration, projects, articles I find interesting basically anything to do with photography.  I will still put photos on here but I am sure you get the idea.

One of the Alpines growing in the front hedge, I only put it in last year so hoping it will flower.

Linking with Lucky 7's in 2014 - resolution to complete this photo a day and to sort my garden.
