see ya 2012


As the year draws to an end it is a wonderful time to reflect on the year that was 2012. It’s been a big year for me in so many ways. Some of the stand outs for me are……

My baby girl has finished school and done very well! I have officially grown my children to adulthood and that is an amazing feeling…..

Part way through the year I made the decision to “change what I could & stop worrying about what I couldn’t”. This has had a hugely positive impact on my life – everything improved!!! I took the advice of a lovely friend who asked me “How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time” At the time I was feeling totally overwhelmed with the amount of work still to be done on the house and this changed how I approached it all & I started to enjoy it again…..

I started my blog! I had no idea how much I would love it. It is so much fun, writing, taking pictures, putting it all together – love it!! Even bigger bonus is that people actually read it!! Who would have thought?!

What I am most grateful for this year is that my family are all healthy and although there have been challenges this year we have survived unscathed. My heart bursts with how much I love them all.

So….. New years resolutions for 2013…. Do you make them? As a rule I don’t because I suck at keeping them. This year though I am making myself a few promises!

I’m going to get healthier & stronger. Starting to feel my age (actually older than my age) so better get on and do something about it.

I’m going to keep blogging & taking pictures & learn as much as I can along the way.

I’m going to finish keep working on the house & enjoy every moment of it!!!

To all my family & friends & everyone who has joined me on my blog journey so far, THANK YOU for being here with me. I hope 2013 is your best year ever, filled to the brim with love & happiness.

And now without further a-do……. MY NEW DO!
