Day 1 - 2012

Happiest of Happy Days Ahead

Captain V and I welcome all that this new year has to offer with hearts, minds and arms wide open.

Yesterday, we went for a wonderful 'hunt & gather' amongst the local providores, purchasing some truly scrummy delicacies to tempt our tastebuds...including ingredients for some of Captain V's famous cocktails.

Today we will be ushering in the next page in our book of years with a festival of bubbles. 
Intrigued? Click here to find out what this means.  

Perhaps we'll even end the day donning our retro-inspired glasses just like in the photo above, cranking up the 'Happy Dancing' playlist on the iPod, jumping in the pool before retiring to the final flush of bubbles in the candlelit spa - sigh.

I hope that whatever you choose to do to mark this auspicious occasion, you are in good health, surrounded by those whom you truly love and there is much to look forward to in the days and months ahead.

Biggest of happy hugs and salut!


  1. happy new year to you, across the globe! :)

  2. Sounds a great plan to celebrate the new year. Wishing you a great year ahead.

  3. What a lovely post to start the year...happy 2012 to you too and I look forward to a wonderful year filled with inspiring women like yourself!!!x

  4. Update:

    We've literally climbed a mountain to see the sunrise, pretty speccy and then scooted down to the beach for what would have to be one of THE most picture perfect mornings where I had my ankles kissed by bubbly bridal veil froth from the waves and collected the tiniest little white shells.

    Visited the bakery for a crusty French stick and have just harvested some basil and tomatoes from our garden which we'll enjoy with some triple cream cheese - an auspicious, healthy and beautiful start to our year.

    Signing off now to luxuriate in the day with Captain V including at least an hour in the hammock reading the papers.

    Hoping some of our joy rubs off onto you...xxx's
