Happy New Year! I love the change of year - it always feels like a fresh start, full of promise and hope for things to come. Despite always sobbing at midnight (regardless of how much alcohol has been consumed!) I always look forward to a new year, and enjoy looking back at the old one.
So, 2013 was a happy year on the whole for us. We saw lots of changes - Andy stopped working shifts, which has had plus and minus sides (the biggest plus being that he didn't have to work over Christmas!), Ruth started Secondary school, meaning I don't have children at Primary school any more, and I finished working as a TA and went self employed.
We had nice holidays, fun family events, good times with friends, cosy times just the five of us (I'm including the dog here - he loves cosy times), hectic times, stressy times, happy times, sad times. The same as most people I guess.
Well 2014, what do you have in store? I'm really looking forward to taking my business further - it's been good so far, and I have definitely made the right decision, but there are so many more things I need and want to do with it. We have GCSE option choices to help Grace with, holidays to plan, family events to organise, and life to get on with. I can't wait!
I hope yours is a happy and fulfilling year.
