From Cris, Argentina


Happy New Year to the BBC LE staff, my blog mates and readers!

Hope you had all a fantastic celebration.
We celebrated Christmas Eve at my mum's house and New Year's Eve at my place. I want to share a picture of the first toast of this 2011.


I'm very glad to catch up with all of you and I thank the BBC team who had the brilliant idea to have this open blog in January instead of December.

December is always a rush month. I mean, we all want to accomplish and finish all the undone things before the ending. We tend to start the year more organized (at least me) and to think of how to improve the way we handle our everyday life.

Since here in Argentina is summer and hence, the synonym of HOLIDAYS, we always begin to think of them at the beginning of the New Year.

By the way, I want to tell you that we have a new integrant in my family. Her name is Lola and she is my mum's new dog. Her breed is Toy Poodle. They call it Toy because they are very little and don't grow much as the regular Poodles.
Here is a pic of her

Hope you all have peace, health, love and work.
See you,

    Hi Cris, you were the first to blog in January!
    Hope this will be a month with a lot of participation in this international experience.
    Are you planning your holidays? Why donĀ“t you tell us if you are going to some beach in your country or a few days abroad.
    I also hope the same of you for all BBC bloggers and commenters.

    Hi Cris! Nice to meet you :-)

    I think you're absolutely right about December - it was all in a rush. I even didn't have enough time to visit this wonderful site and comment on Veronika's blog (I'm really sorry for that). I'm glad the December 2010 is over and I hope that the January 2011 in your company will be very interesting (^_*).

    Unlike you, we have Christmas ahead of us (Russia is a mostly orthodox country), we celebrate it on 7th January.

    I'm looking forward to your next posts :)

    Nastya, Russia

    P.S. Yeah, Lola is just amazing ;-) And Happy New Year to all of you!

    Hi Cris

    Your family is lovely and so is your pet Lola. Say hello to them. I had an adventurous New Year Eve making a dangerous trip to rescue my son. He was in another city just in time of catastrophic inundations.

    The connection still isn't decent here in the countryside but I hope I can send a blog with the pictures telling you this episode.

    Hi everyone,

    Hi Cris,

    it's nice to be able to read this open blog. This way we may have a chance to read from all the nice people that were bloggers before.

    Your picture was very nice. You have a beautiful family. what was that you were drinking? Are you old enough to drink alcohol?

    Adriana, what was that about th water? I've been watching it on TV. I hope nothing more serious has happened to you.

    Well friends see you soon.

    Hi my dear friend,

    I am glad to read your first entry and your happy photos gave me a good feeling. I wish you and your loved ones were as happy in the new year as you are in this pic! Needless to say, Lola is so cute an adorable. I am sure she is good company for your mum.

    Cris, I liked your wishes for the new year, as you wished for work. Having a job is a very important thing, especially nowadays, isn't it?

    Take care,
    Anita from Slovakia
