The photo above is the view down the street in Moretonhampstead. I love how the little villages around Dartmoor are so close to nature, just look what's at the end of the street!
The next village for my birthday outing was the village of Chagford. I love it here and it was made even more special when I sat amongst the beautiful paintings of Rima Staines while drinking my delicious mug of tea in the Courtyard cafe.
I had to cut the bottom part of these photos because there were people sitting at the table right by them.

After having the big christmas binge and then my birthday on new years eve, each year I get the urge to make the new year, a new start. The usual thing I do is to make a list of resolutions and never keep to them so this year for a change, I've listed ones that I know will be achievable, even for me with my procrastinating tendencies!
Here's a snippet...
It's only a snippet because the other items are private. I'm sure you don't mind. :o)
The sun going down on 2011 in Lyme Regis.
Goodbye 2011, you have been a major year of learning for me in life and love
and in art. You've brought some wonderful unforgettable moments with special people, big ups and big downs but without the downs, the 'ups' aren't up are they? ;o)
I appreciate all that's happened this year and hope that this new year will bring joy to all.
I wish us all a very happy, healthy and loving 2012,
where wishes and happy dreams come true.♥
