Happy New Year

It's New Years eve 2011 and it's a time to reflect on the year that has almost ended and think about the coming year and contemplate what things we would like to change and what we would like to happen.

I have been doing quite a lot Of thinking these past few days and have decided on a few things that I need to do for me in 2012. Things that will hopefully make me a better person and learn to appreciate what we have.

We know that 2012 is definitely going to be a year of changes for us. Andre was told 3 days prior to Christmas that they would not be renewing his contract. So that means a move is definately on the horizon for us, to where - that is the question but I am sure that we will figure it out? One of my resolutions is to just be grateful that he has a job until May 29th.

I really need to stop worrying about it so much it's doing my head in !!!

Next I have decided that I really need to blog more. To come chat about my thoughts and feelings, and also share my craft projects. I have just discovered that I can blog from my iPod ( and this post is a trial post from posting from my iPod )it's a tad painful but it can be done and therefore makes blogging more accessible.

Next I need to overcome this feeling I constantly have that I never get a chance to relax or do my crafts and the only way to overcome this is literally to make time.

Here are a few things that I hope to achieve in 2012.

1. Finish Seaside Treasures ... Which is currently at around 50% completion.

2. Finish the baby blanket for my sisters baby girl whom is due within the next 6 weeks. So this is a bit of a priority and I will share a photo soon promise.

3. Finish the blanket I started at the beginning of last winter for Micayla.

4. Finish the blanket I started for our bed.

5. Find the mistake in Aurora Cabin and keep working on it.

6. Start whatever takes my fancy and makes me happy.

Lastly I have decided that I really need to do something about my weight. Hmmm I know you all have heard this before and this time I am determined to put the effort needed in. I have joined Michelle Bridges 12week body challenge. 12 weeks of intensive diet and exercise. I am looking forward to the mindset lessons so that I can learn to think about food correctly. After all I choose what to put in my mouth. If anyone is interested in finding out more about the program you can read about it at I will most probably start a separate blog so that I can record my journey and not bore you all the process but I will post the link here just in case you want to come cheer me on.

Anyway... That's for reading thus far and I hope that you all have a safe start to 2012 and that in 2012 your dreams come true.

Merry Christmas Everyone

Just thought I would pop in and say *Merry Christmas* to all of my friends in blog-land.  As I am unsure if I will get a chance to come say it again before the *big* day as I am working every day between now and then and even on the big day!  Certainly has been a busy time of year!

I am all finished with my present shopping and am going food shopping later tonight.  I won't be going overboard as its just us.

How are you all? Organised or still rushing around madly?

Andre just popped home at lunch time today and presented me with the above flowers (complete with a bottle of my favourite alcohol - Tia Maria) - I am a lucky lady.
