Remember twelve months ago, when I stated my intention to post at least once a week in 2011?
Yeah, I know. Not my best work. According to the annual round-up that landed in my inbox this morning, I wrote 40 posts in 2011, and only 5 in the last six months. That’s what the kids these days might call an epic fail.
So I’m going to try again. Even if it’s just a weekly update on what I’m knitting, I WILL post at least once a week this year.
To catch you up with what’s been happening since the last time I posted, there’s been the usual frantic pace of Term 4; between swimming lessons, volunteering in the school canteen, Boyo’s 4-day school camp at Narrabeen, four assemblies, two class parties, a Christmas stall and a school dance, I feel like my feet hardly hit the ground in November-December. Then once school broke up there was the inevitable rush of Christmas prep, made more interesting by the fact of Tech Support being diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes, so we are in the process of completely overhauling our diet and lifestyle. He is slowly feeling better as he adjusts to his meds and a whole new way of thinking about food and his body. He has another two weeks of annual leave before he goes back to work, so we are working on various coping strategies – healthy snacks that he can have on hand, packed lunches, an insulated water-bottle.
Christmas was lovely, just the four of us at home. Lego brought us a Christmas miracle – three hours of absolute silence as the boys worked on their new acquisitions. It was bliss! There was a time I used to think Lego was overpriced, but now I tell you it is worth EVERY SINGLE PENNY!!!
Finally, I’ll leave you with this song. It pops into my head now and then, and I love it, because it’s about taking joy in the little things.
