Hulahooping into 2011

Wishing you all a happy and healthy 2011.

There are no hangovers in the Beattie residence today.

During yesterday afternoon Husband dragged me out of the house to prevent from feeding my manuscript through the shredding machine. He bought me some stationery, some chocolate and two hula-hoops and then we went to Starbucks.

When we got home I resolutely refused to look at my novel. Instead we got out the hula hoops.

We had a lovely quiet family New Year, watching National Treasure films, eating satsumas and then watching the panorama of fireworks from our balcony.

Happy New Year to you too, love the photo, what a great idea - we've got one somewhere, not sure it won't just sit on my hips though!!!! Jane x

Happy Hulahooping to you!!!
I can't use a hulahoop - it just falls to the ground - there's nothing for it to catch on....

Me and Mrs S wish you and everyone you care about a happy, healthy, and prosperous 2011.

Take care my friend, Boonie

Jane, if I run through the pictures really quickly the kids look like they're actually hula hooping! They were such fun.

Boonie, I've NEVER been able to do it either but I persevered yesterday and I got there! But today my ribs are really bruised! A very happy 2011 to you and Mrs S.

Happy New Year - and congratulations on the hula-hooping! It's such good exercise. I hope 2011 brings you everything you wish for.

I love the idea of starting the 2nd decade of this millennium with a giant step backwards. Hula hoops are great!

Happy New Year!

Great picture!

You have a nice husband. You picture makes me want to run out and get a hula hoop for myself. I have a feeling my kids will fight me for it though, haha!

I would have thought the hula hoop was a very odd present until last week I was persuaded to try it again. So much fun! Enjoy!
