Happy Winter Solstice!
Warning: This post if full of clause errors, in honor of Christmas.
I have been missing in action for a couple of weeks, sorry about that. I have been in this weird mental limbo, and I can’t seem to focus on anything except maybe Netflix. I have almost finished three seasons of Downton Abbey. Binge. Binge. Binge.
It’s what I do. 2015 will be about finding balance. I am a notorious binger. I can’t do anything “a little bit.” I have to take it to the level of crazy.
Winter Solstice is approaching this weekend for those of us in the northern hemisphere. It means the longest night of the year but also the return of the light. Each day we will gain a few minutes of daylight! I love watching the days grow longer.
I will be sure to make myself a tea, turn on the fireplace and burn an imaginary Yule log while giving thanks for a wonderful year and making plans for the next.
Thank you to everyone for your support this year. Blogging has been full of surprises for me and I learn something new every time I log in. I am working on building a blog roll, you can see it over there on the side ————————————————————-> It is a work in progress and has crashed my site a few times (LOL!) so hope to add more to the list once I have the technical bugs worked out.

Activity will likely be a little sporadic around Messy Money until the New Year. I have scribbled notes for future posts, so provided I can read my handwriting, I will be back with a bang in January.
Until then all the best to you and yours! Wishing you a healthy, happy and prosperous New Year. Oh, and Happy Winter Solstice!
