(The kids and I spent the last stretch of the night drawing on our front door, it was lovely).

Hope everyone is off to a beautiful start in their new year.

Seeing I didn’t meet all of my goals last year I thought I’d set even more this year and see how that plays out.

13. Set up kids bedrooms

12. Bring additional income in

11. Paint bedroom

10. Renovate our dismal bathroom

9. Sew clothes for Eve

8. Work on organisation at home

7. Grow more food

6. Stain / paint all floors

5. Take a photo every week of my children

4. Get camera fixed

3. Paint, or draw at least one piece a month

2. Take a holiday

1. Finish kitchen renovation

Most of the centre on our house which is pretty right for me as I’m very much a homebody, focusing on the place I like to be seems a good way to keep up my motivation.

Lucky 2013

I can hear the pop pop pop of the fireworks, not quite midnight. The babe asleep between us mouth agape hand tucked inside her father’s, while we watch ‘John dies at the end’ on Ty’s iPad.

The clock ticks forward the pops are closer together and the dogs of our neighbourhood howl. I get Ty to open our blind and can see glimpses of fireworks through the trees across the road. It’s even more beautiful shrouded in leaves. Almost as lovely as the big soft kiss he plants on me and says Happy New Year.

Such a lovely start to 2013.
I am a lucky woman.
Wishing you all luck too.

The clock ticks forward the pops are closer together and the dogs of our neighbourhood howl. I get Tyler to open our blind and can see glimpses of fireworks through the trees across the road. It’s even more beautiful shrouded in leaves. Almost as lovely as the big soft kiss he plants on me and says Happy New Year.

Such a lovely start to 2013.
