A LOT of stuff happened in 2012. I wrote some books, did a few fab tours, moved house… I had some awesome times, and I am hoping for more in 2013. I have a feeling it is going to be FANTASTIC… for all of us!

I was lucky enough to spend New Year’s Eve with family and close friends, with good food, live music and lots of hugs and chat. We wrote our wishes for the New Year onto a sky lantern (the safe kind, with no metal or plastic parts that can hurt animals) and at midnight we launched the lantern off into the darkness and watched it disappear amongst the stars. I hope that means all of our wishes will come true! You can see a pic of our sky lantern in the Jan online newsletter… sign up for it here!

I am SOOOOO excited about the secret changes coming SOON on the CC website… we have been working away all Christmas and New Year to make sure it will be ready! Keep a lookout, because all will be revealed mid-January. And if you love the Chocolate Box Girls series, then trust me, you will LOVE it! For some clues on what to expect, take a peek at the January online newsletter! 

Have you made any resolutions for 2013? I love the fact that each new year is a fresh start and this year my best resolution is to remember all the good times about 2013 and value them. I’ve even started a Memory Jar, where I write down happy moments and store them in a jar to look through on New Year’s Eve 2013… pretty cool. Happy New Year… have a good one!

  3. Hi Cathy
    Happy new year!! We did wish lanterns but when we set them off at midnight it was windy and they blew into a tree and set fire to the tree!! Luckily it was damp so it went out and everybody was safe!

  7. HELLO! What date is it today???? It’s quite a bit past New year, :-(, now we’ve got the boring wait until Easter, I wish it would snow…. Was marshmallow Skye originally going to be printed as Vanilla Skye coz in Cherry Crush it has a black and white picture of the cover of the book at the back and unless I’m going mad (which maybe I am, might need to take a nap in a minute) it sags Vanilla Skye on the cover????
