Way back at the start of 2022, I as invited to join the Homage Premium Club from The Waldorf Hilton, there was a joining fee to pay but I was impressed by the benefits which included a one night free stay at The Waldorf, dinner for two and a bottle of wine. It actually took me ages to get around to booking it but in November, my husband and I finally made it and we had a really fabulous 24 hours in London. Typically the day we were visiting there was a tube strike! The black cab from Marylebone to Aldwych was very expensive but never mind the weather was mild and we had some lovely plans to look forward to.
One of the museums I had been keen to visit to for some time was the Churchill War Rooms part of the collection from the Imperial War Museum. Some years ago we visited Chartwell House - another recommended day out - and along with watching some of the famous movies about Sir Winston Churchill, plus a big interest in the history of WWII, we have both loved learning more about this inspirational statesman. We also really enjoyed a day out, many years ago now (I was pregnant with Emily) at Dover Castle, the Secret Wartime Tunnels are hidden deep into the White Cliffs of Dover and bring to life the dramatic rescue of the wartime forces from Dunkirk. Must go back!
Having looked at the map, the location of The Waldorf meant that including a visit to the Churchill War Rooms would work perfectly!

Happy New Year! Today I am reflecting back over the last year ... it has been a bit of a tough one for everyone I think and I have had my personal challenges too but I feel like maybe I am beginning to get my sh*t together!
Blogging not only gives me a creative outlet, I love writing, it also allows me to do something for me and provides a personal history of the ups and downs of my life. I've been lucky in the last year or so to be able to work with some fantastic brands, both small and large, and learn new things, increase my knowledge and understanding and support others. Thank you so much for being here with me and taking the time to read my posts, comment or send me a message. Knowing my mutterings help and interest others is a real boost and makes the time I give to my blog even more worthwhile.
Yesterday, New Year's Day, I was thinking about my goals for 2023 and although I don't believe in new year resolutions I do like to plan ahead and think about what I'd like to achieve, do more of or do less of, and one action that helps me is having a WORD of the year. Last year I wrote about finding perspective and balance, I felt I had lost sight of what was really important to me and I certainly referred back to my word when I had some quite dark periods during 2022! The worst time being when my HRT stopped working!
