Little Foodies wishes you all a Happy New Year

I'm still in bed (lazy cow!). Medication has changed so hoping that from next year (less than 6 hours away) I'll be out of bed more than I'm in it.

It's been interesting. I've been grumpy, happy, sleepy, dopey. Infact the Seven Dwarfs have got nothing on me. I've caught up with lots of blog reading. I read and enjoyed every single post that Lydia of The Perfect Pantry has written. If you ever find yourself bed ridden then I'd urge you to do the same, it was great.

I haven't made any New Year resolutions for a few years and I don't think I've given enough thought to it to make really profound ones this year but I should definitely include the following....

Take more care of self including looking after back and actually doing the exercises that the physiotherapist told me to do (over 11 months ago).. Work on building core strength. Maybe start yoga - just typing that made me giggle. Pass me the diazapam I think I'm losing it!

Maybe lose the baby weight. Small will be 4 this year. Not being able to breathe properly while wearing jeans can hardly be blamed on just having had a baby! Okay lose the weight from eating all the pies. Cream ones, chicken ones, banoffee ones, yep I think the pies might be to be blame for the excess weight!

To my boys - Hubby, Little and Small - thanks for being here these last few days. I've tried to be as well behaved as possible. I rather hope you'll agree. Happy New Year my gorgeous ones! Here's hoping 2008 is a wonderful and healthy one for us.

Happy New Year to everybody else too. Hope 2008 brings you all good things.


Asha said...

A very happy and healthy new year to you all too.
Enjoy, I will be back blogging tomorrow with a bang!:D

Coffee & Vanilla said...

Happy New Year to you Amanda!! :)

Lydia said...

Amanda, I'm so glad my little blog has kept you entertained while you're bedridden! Here's to a wonderful 2008 with a healthy back, and a few sweets here and there....

Megan said...

Happy and Healthy New Year to you!!!

Marie said...

Wising only good things for you, hubby, little and small in 2008, Amanda. Hope you are feeling back in the pink soon, but in the meantime be good to yourself. (((hugs))))

Oh Amanda so sorry you've had to spend so much time in bed. It can be a boring place. You're right Lydia would keep you entertained well.
I can only encourage you to try yoga. It is the most marvelous thing I've ever done.
All the best to you and the boys!

Dear Amanda,
Your back problem sounds really painful. I hope that you are starting to feel better. It's good to hear that you've managed to try to distract yourself from the pain with the internet.

Here's wishing you a healthy year ahead.

x Nora

Happy New Year Amanda (and Hubby, little and small),

Get well soon.

Everyone around here does Pilates for bad backs. Gentler than yoga. I haven't tried it myself but may be worth investigating.

May all your dreams come true in 2008.

Quellia said...

Well you are sounding a bit better at least!
Best wishes for a wonderful year ahead!

katiez said...

Happy New year to you as well!
Hope your bed is a pretty one - comfort alone can only do so much...we need pretty as well!

David Hall said...

Get better soon Amanda, so sorry to hear about what has happened. Stay positive!

Happy New Year, all the best for 2008

Deborah said...

Happy new year Amanda! I wish you all the best for 2008!

Amanda at Little Foodies said...

Hi Asha, thank you, looking forward to your New Year post.

Hi Margot, and to you.

Hi Lydia, thank you. It made great reading!

Hi Megan, and to you too.

Hi Marie, thank you and wishing all good things for you too.

Hi Tanna, I might give it a go or Fiona suggested pilates. I certainly think I need to do something everyone keeps on about my core strength.

Hi Nora, Today I've been up all day - it's been great!

Hi Fiona, like I said to Tanna I definitely need to do something.

Hi Quellia, thank you, I am.

Hi Katie, it is pretty(ish) and thankfully I'm up and wont be spending anymore days in bed. Think I might invest in a pretty blanket though, just incase there's a next time.

Hi David, thank you, I am! Had a few moments where I haven't been of course but getting there.

Hi Deborah, thank you and to you too.

Thank you all for your comments and well wishes. It means a lot.
All good wishes for 2008!
Amanda xx

A very nice happy 2008 to you and a speedy recovery.Pl visit my site

Annemarie said...

Hope you're nice and recovered now (perhaps the illness has chased away a couple of pounds in weight..?). Sounds like you've come down with what everyone we were visiting over Christmas had, and which had been creeping up on me for the past 5 days (sniffle sniffle). Ah winter!

Amanda at Little Foodies said...

Hi G, thank you.

Hi Annemarie, I hope you don't come down with it. It was vile and followed by my back possibl the worst end to a year and start to a New Year I've ever had - oh woe is me, WOE is me! tee hee! take care

Thanks for your comments.

Aimée said...

Thinking of you even though I haven't been 'around' much. Feel better soon.

Margaret said...

Happy New Year Little Foodies! I'm sure a hug from the little ones has helped to make you feel better.

african vanielje said...

So sorry that you're in such pain. I hope it passes quickly and you manage to build up your core strength whilst still indulging in the odd pie. Or leg of Jamon Serrano (you lucky cow). Happy 2008

Amanda at Little Foodies said...

Hi Aimee, Thanks!! :)

Margaret, you're right, even when they hurt they still made it feel better!

Inge, I am a very lucky bovine creature indeed! Don't think I'll ever be able to give up on pies. ;)

Pig in the Kitchen said...

Pilates is good (and not as poncey as yoga) does wonders for the core strength!
HNY to you too!

Amanda at Little Foodies said...

Hi Pig, Pilates seems to be the one to go for. I just have to get it to a stage where I can actually move about properly without looking like some kind of weirdo. Ax
