In an recent post I mentioned how I used to love buying new stationery at the beginning of a new school year.I'm no longer in school but i do still love to buy some at the start of the year,how cool are these pencils.
I don't really want to make any new years resolutions but here is a summary of highlights of 2007 and things I'd like to do or planning in 2008.

What a perfect post. You achieved a lot of good things in 2007 and I have a feeling 2008 is going to be a good year for all of us.

Happy New Year! Good luck witht the job thing this year.
Can you tell me where to get the bakers twine? I'm a bit in love with it.

MissK said...

I didn't think there was much until I wrote it all down.
The bakers twine is from The Bay Tree in Woollahra

Sounds like you have had a great year, other than the stomach bugs. I'm looking forward to what's on the horizon for 2008. My list looks a lot like yours and I hope they all come "true" for both of us!
