I've pondered how to sum up 2012, and after much beginning and then backspacing, I've decided to just keep schtum......We got to about five weeks ago and then .....well, it really doesn't deserve the blog-space. It is sufficient to say that my family and I are dearly looking forward to the New Year.
Amongst the rubbish there have been a plethora of smiles......here are some recent ones.
(I giggled nervously as we drove through the monkey enclosure.....not sure I really 'enjoyed' it as I was feeling a little stressed that this cute monkey and his friends would make mincemeat of our car!)
Looking back at my last new year's eve post, I see we went for a wood walk, and today we were also up to our ankles in mud and rain, trekking through my favourite walk in the trees.....lets hope there is far more of that in 2013!
I am hoping to find our things which are still waiting to be discovered in one of the many boxes we moved but haven't yet opened.
I am planning to over-do the sparkle that was somewhat sparse this Christmas.
I will make it my personal mission to discover whether a traditional English trifle should be jelly-less (this one has caused some debate in the most unlikely of situations).....please feel free to add your two-pence worth.
I will wear vests.
I will read.
I will again contemplate the idea of swimming in the sea everyday........contemplate.........
I will knit socks
D'you know.....I've cheered myself with the endless possibilities that 2013 holds....I've reminded myself how much I love being part of this little community.....thank you for making my year!
A VERY BLESSED AND HAPPY 2013 TO YOU ALL!!
