happy and magical 2009 we welcome

due to illness my plans to go back to the haggerty house with samuel and stay with the cousins got cancelled. so he went instead. i stayed at home. with pig. tilly~rose too. my older brother and his girlfriend were there and also my sister stayed with my nephews. we played board games and giggled and sniggled at silly answers my sister wrote down. we had bubbles at 12. i had a teeny bit of bubbles. they had more. fireworks popping and banging all around outside the window. pinks and greens and sparkly golds.
i wished for a woodland tea party. but it was too cold. i would have worn this with my new mittens that mother bought. we would have had cake and biscuits and tea to keep our insides warm.
instead we popped outside. out the front door. our icy icy breath warming our surroundings. we had gold sparkly sparklers. swirly and twirly we spelt our names with the teeny starry trail. magical sticks excited our souls. this was far too fun than celebrating the new year other wise.
only smiles and magical excited giggles came from my heart this particular night. i spent it quite perfectly. now all is needed are the most perfect new years resolutions for 2009. i will promise to keep them. in fact i think they will just come far too naturally this year.
these have been thoughtfully picked out. especially for myself.
♥ i will be extremely and completely happy this year. like i used to be back then when those things were almost perfect.
♥ i will smile a considerable amount from those things i had forgotten that made me happy... family and friends and being creative.
♥ i will make more delightfully yummy things so i can have the perfect excuse to host a tea party. tea parties in my magical place.
♥ i will travel to the moon with my moon best friend and all my other moon friends and we will catch those stars and make our special headbands.
♥ i will write more stories and share with you some amazing adventures.
♥ i will not cry over silly souls that are no longer apart of my soul or my adventures. those who once broke my heart a teeny bit. those who are no longer allowed to make my eyes well and my cheeks dampen. nor will i meet anyone who may do the same.
♥ and most importantly i will have the most amazingly magical and pretty year i have had so far. and i am completely too very happy and delighted to be sharing it with you. and tilly~rose. and obviously pig. smiles forever because of you.

    I love love fireworks. We didn't have any this year, but just looking at yours makes me happy :)

    You have amazing resolutions and I wish you all the best in keeping them. Especially about being happy. It is oh so important, so important that sometimes we forget.

    I wish I could go to the moon too. I think I would braid my hair and put stars in them, and every time I would move they would twinkle and somewhere on Earth somebody would make a wish.

    Happy new year, dear.

  40. Happy new year ! What delightful photos!

  41. Hi! I'm new to Blogger but I somehow stumbled across your blog and love it! Your photographs are divine, you have so many lovely things. I have a pig from my childhood very similar to your Pig, although mine is called Piggy (we were obviously very imaginitive children ;). Also, I think I may steal your hammy's name for my first child, when the day comes, is that okay with you?
    Happy New Year!

  42. I just came across your blog - its gorgeous! really enjoyed it, esp as i've not found a great deal of UK blogs around yet!! xx

  43. Dear lovely friend Lottie,

    You are positively wonderful, and adorable and so loveable. My absentness, and my not replying to your ever so sweet comments is so horrifying and I am so very sorry for keeping away. I have been so very busy, but I made myself sit down and comment on your lovely post.

    Those pictures are so gorgeous, you are so gorgeous.

    I am so glad you had so much fun and were able to spend some time with your older brother and more family time. Bubbles, meaning champagne?

    Comments left by you are such a surprise, they leave me smiling on and on, and I too adore your comments.
    You are very welcome for my comments, it is simply too wonderful, your blog I mean, to not comment and to not be enchanted with you.

    Yes, the blocks are lovely indeed. It was a bit dumb of me not to notice what made part of the calendar and what didn’t. sorry
    Ooh, so the haggerty house is your cousin’s house. Much better and less confusion now. Hehe
    Basin fairy, how wonderful that is.

    Yes yes, I have watched or more like heard about the Charlie and Lola, they are so very cute. I actually played the games they have, like the maze or the music one. It is quite pleasing to do so, it makes me feel like a little one again. Missing those days so much lately.

    Well, I have been having a wonderful time, thank you for asking.

    So glad to hear you have been having such a precious time too, with all those treats and the lovely family bonding time, no? Board games with family and friends is always the best. So much fun to do so, while everyone is happy and not getting too competitive, that is.

    No snow?! How sad, I am sorry, maybe I should have wished with you, and then you would have gotten your wish. So sorry, next time remind me to wish with you, then it will happened.

    If you wish, when I go to Wyoming, I could send you a box of imaginary snow through the comment box, but then it would be such a wet comment, but it is the sentiment that counts, right?

    Well then, your autie and your friend look quite happy in the snowy pictures, which is great.

    Yum yum, mince pie with milk. But no, I have had no mince pie or any sort of treats lately. I yearn for some now, which always seems to happen when I read your blog. Weird, I know.

    These goals you have picked are all so wonderful.
    Smiling should be so easy to such a lovely and wonderful person as yourself, but I do understand that someone made you cry far too much, but I do hope that you are able to stick to the no more crying over them rule. You are far too good for anyone, too lovely and precious.

    Oh excuses to host a tea party, which is a lovely goal indeed. May I go to the moon with you or is that only for your besties? Because I would very much love to catch stars and make our own headbands, though seeing as how I am not as creative as you or Rosie, mine would be pretty ugly. But could I come along to the moon and have a wonderful tea party with the loveliest darlings I have met? ♥

    I am so happy and delighted that you would be willing to spend this wonderful year with me, and it should be an amazing goal for you to have the greatest of times. Which I hope, with every bit of my heart, that you do. Maybe if I wish hard enough it will truly come true, do you think so? Such a lovely little darling should never be sad, and should always smile and be merry because you are positively wonderful and simply a beautiful person, inside and out.
    Those pictures of you proved so, because you are so pretty. The butterfly in your hair is just such a great little detail, and those gloves do look so nice, I wish I had found some such as those.

    Oh my, that ‘little’ mask of feathers is so nice, where ever did you find such a stunning piece? How wonderful it would be to go to a masquerade, of course that is if I were able to find a lovely guy who would be a gentlemen throughout the night, don’t you agree?

    the shirt is so very pretty, holding sparklers while wearing such a sparkly shirt yourself. Oh and I oculd almost make out your shoes, I think, in the last picture but the sparkler made it blurry. Too bad, though I am sure they were also very pretty.

    Well honey dear, I am sure you have been spending this weeks of time off to the best, with your family, but seein as how you mentioned something about you being sick or feeling ill, I hope that you will get better or already are.

    Oh and give my hellos to Tilly~rose, who is also such a cute little darling, along with pig of course.

    Well, I am off to finish this many commenting I have going on.
    Have the bestests of weeks, and I am so very sorry for the lateness of this comment. Oh and also happy belated New Years. Hehe


  44. your photos take me to an inspiratonal place. i like thoughtful writing, too. your blog us all smooth and happy and tasteful. makes me smile.

  45. such lovely pictures - i love that feathery mask and the sparklers - looks like such fun!

    Your goals for this year are beautiful, I hope you accomplish them all!

  46. I will give you a big sparkly star (a real one, ill pluck it from the sky for realz!)if you give me you intensely cute mask. I was trawling the shops for on like it all day :-(

    Love and sparkles xxx


*Forever Love*
