In jigsaws and company.

What are your New Year traditions?

For many years my sons and I have had a variety of ‘traditions’ for New Year – being together and with other people we want in our lives, eating treats from our Dutch heritage, blowing bubbles, wearing new clothes, burning words. It has also become ‘traditional’ to do jigsaw puzzles with GUF and any other loved ones we can wrangle–this year the above was the first beauty of the day. The bubbles, new clothes and burning were given a miss this year while my back recovered from excess end-of-year cleaning.

This year we’ve been delighted that my friend Ceccy‘s visit for digital professional development lasted over the change of year.  Life is lovelier when Ceccy is around.

A dinner party with Terry Pratchett would be … #blogjune

… fascinating, obviously
… and a great reason to travel to wherever it was to be held

… a great reason to study how to do the dinner party thing
… a reason to seek out and read all the interviews he has given
… also a good fundraiser?
… but mostly a cruel topic for my sis to suggest.

Its easier to imagine observing, or later hearing about, the conversation Cecilia might have with him at a dinner party.

Needing inspiration, I’ve checked out the website sis linked… Hm, I don’t recall hearing about Raising Steam, so this was a good time to sign up for the newsletter:

Talking about dinner… Mr 16 just served a scrumptious Chicken & chorizo puff pie (thanks, Sorted).

So Sis: What is June to you?
