Well here we are in a brand new year already – 2017 ! It’s here whether you were ready or not – I know that a huge amount of people were more than happy to kiss 2016 goodbye – a very bad year for all sorts of reasons and all sorts of people…..
Most years our Christmas and New Year celebrations are pretty low key – but this year was an exception.
Between Christmas and New Year we took an overnight trip to Nassau to have night out with great friends from the UK who were visiting family over there. We went for a lovely meal at our favorite Cafe Matisse and spent the night at The Island House – it was a great time and we stayed out late but as the years go by isn’t it amazing how much longer it takes to get over it !!
We actually went out on New Year’s Eve for a change – we hardly ever do – and this year it was super late night riotous fun. We started the night at La Bougainvillea – a new resort style restaurant near Palmetto Point and finished up with Angelika Bacchus and friends at Bacchus Fine Foods for a wild danceathon until 1.30 am – yes 1.30 for Bob and I – unheard of !!!!
By the way – my favorite Christmas present this year was a glitter globe that Bob gave me. It has a glass Bhudda within the globe and lots of gold glitter when you shake it. When the glitter is sailing around it it a complete analogy to what the inside of my head is like – full of lots and lots of thoughts – things to remember , to do etc etc. But when I meditate it is just like the glitter settling – my thoughts settle around me. I just love to have something that I can pick up and shake and then smile at as I see it all clearing – not totally what always happens but certainly a visual reminder of what I aspire to.
The small things are often the most meaningful……
So I am hoping that next week I can write about La Bougainvillea – I know that when you read that bit you thought – what what what is she talking about – right ? So watch this space for more information…..
By the way I heard from 2 friends that they sometimes clicked on the Facebook link and didn’t get a connection to the full blog. Can you let me know if that is affecting any of the rest of you……
Happy New Year…..
