a new look for a new decade and a very happy new year!

I've been coughing for about three days now and have had to cancel my New Year's Eve plans for a hot date with the sofa and TV instead. Sigh. Still I've been being productive from my sick bed.

As you can see, the Suburban Yogini has undergone an overhaul in preparation for the new year. I have felt this blog has been heading in a new direction for a while so I figured it was time to make it look that way. I've added a whole new "About Me" section which should appear in the previous post and also if you click on the pretty pink "About" button! (Thanks to shabbyblogs for that and the awesome header!)

I feel as though I have undergone an overhaul over the last few months as well. I'm not going to pretend 2009 has been an easy year, it hasn't. It's been one of the toughest years of my life. But what doesn't kill you makes you stronger and without this transitionary year I wouldn't be in the position I am in now - to really live my life to its fullest in 2010.

Happy new year, dear dear readers and thank you for reading. I leave you, not with poetic genius as such, but with the very simple words of Dave Grohl.

It's times like these you learn to live again
It's times like these you give and give again
It's times like these you learn to love again
It's times like these time and time again

What a lovely makeover! Green Ink's makeover has been in the works for about six months, I keep losing motivation to get back to it!

Finding your blog has greatly contributed to my enjoyment of online life this year :) Have a great NYE - see you on the flipside xx

Thank you everyone!

Emma - go to for headers (although the site is down right now).

Lucinda - thanks for stopping by!

And Phil, likewise, totally - and we've got Mary to thank for that I believe.

Happy new year!

Wonderful :)
Thank you for the new year wishes...a VERY Happy New Year to you. 2010 is going to like you ;)

Hope you feel better soon too!
This may sound a bit odd, but if you have a cold/sore throat, I always find that vinegar helps me. MIGHT just be me. But anyhoo...

HAPPY 2010 :) xx
