Hello and Goodbye Lifestylers for 2014.
I’m taking a bloggie break until the beginning of January to spend time with my family, recharge the batteries and start work on my book. So it’s Farewell 2014 and looking forward to 2015.
I hope you all have a very Happy Christmas and an equally Merry New Year and that you’ll join me in 2015 for more health tips, style posts and everyday shenanigans in January.

- Blogging and all the friends I’ve made and continue to make via the internet
- My friends, online and in real life
- The parrots that visit our bird table, which give me endless pleasure

Until next time, my very best wishes,
Oh I wish I was still on my break now!
I know, the breaks we take from blogging and online work are far too short.
Neva @ Retire for the Fun of it
I totally agree with your thankful list as it relates to my life. I just came off my sabbatical from blogging, so please stay in touch in your warm sunny garden. Can someone explain why – I asked a friend about her sore foot and soon after she explained what plantar fasciitis was, I got it!!! Recently I gave my sympathy to a friend that was wearing a brace on her broken wrist and now I’m wearing one. Needless to say, if I see a friend with a broken leg, I’m running the other way. Happy 2015 with healthy and wonderful wishes for you.
Oh Neva, you are going to have to be very careful and watch what you say and who you meet up with. Shame, I hope your wrist is better and your foot too. It’s so lovely to see you back from your blogging sabbatical. You have been missed by me very much 🙂
It’s fun to find another “over 50” blogger. I’m just getting started at the age of 51. Looks like we’re both in #my50words challenge. Hope you have a wonderful new year!
Hi Sharon, nice to ‘meet’ you. Will check out your #my50words challenge too. Have a lovely year ahead too 🙂
I’m so sorry I don’t how I missed this last week, Jo. I love your list and your blogger friendship as well. A very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you and your family! 🙂
Thanks Mike and to you too!
I love your list of thankfulness. It makes me think of my list which has very similar items on it I must say.
Merry Christmas to you too Muza-Chan!
Hope you have a relaxing and well deserved break over Christmas Jo. A book? I can’t wait to hear all the details. I love your grateful list. I think I echo your thoughts here (except I live of the East Coast!) Merry Christmas!! 🙂
Merry Christmas to you and yours Kathy and will let you know in the new year 😉

Most of all I am thankful for my beautiful family and friends that support and encourage me and are there with a hug when I need it. Thanks Jo for your support in 2014.
Thank you Jill and here’s to a wonderful year ahead for you too!
Those are some good things to be grateful for. Have a nice christmas and enjoy your break 🙂
Hi Bonny! Thank you and all the very best to you too 🙂
