Winter Solstice Greetings

christmas-party-fun

Dear Friends,

I have not forgotten you.  It has been a whirlwind month and what feels like a century since I last wrote here.  So much has been happening.  I have been trying to get to grips with my newly discovered food intolerances and am now feeling adequately equiped to embark on this new culinary journey.  I have finished life in the world of employment for the next 3 years in order to study to become a registered general nurse.   And Christmas is almost upon us and I have barely started shopping for presents!  Yet, despite the rushing around I have somehow found the time to attend the annual yuletide gatherings (evidence pictured above; apparently champagne is yeast free, hurrah).

I have been trying to decide what to write about since I don’t have a recipe to share or new foodie delights.  Despie this lacking I have wanted to post here as I have missed you, dear readers.  I was thinking about posting some musings on the meaning of the winter solstice but this could lead to controversial blog territory.  So, all I shall say is this:

Today is the winter solstice; commonly viewed as the end of the darkness.  From this time until the summer solstice our days slowly become longer and our nights shorter.  It is a celebration of rebirth.  After much  thought I have decided what rebirth means for me but what does this mean for you?

Happy Winter Solstice!
