Happy New Year!

Sunday, 5 January 2014

So it's 2014! Wow! It's snuck up on me so so quickly!
As you can see from my pic, Richie had a great time in snowy Grand Rapids, Chicago. I mean a horse sleigh ride...COME ON!!

Today is the first day I have stopped for a bit of reflection about goals for this year. Mostly because we are practically drowning in all this rain. It has rained and rained and then rained some more. I wake up in the middle of the night expecting to be wading in water...

Have you made some goals/resolutions? One? A few? Share!

Top of my list is a new job and maybe a house move. The Old Bake House is a beauty but it is a bit small for us all, with me and Richie needing an office each and Meadow gaining more plastic crap by the second. Open plan living seems so cool but actually it's nice to have your own individual space...

I'm always sad to leave a house behind, but generally I always find another one better. So I'm looking forward to some challenge in 2014, earning more money so we can ALL go to Chicago next year :) then I can get my own list (he failed  abysmally claiming 'there were no shops around'...oh yes. I am bearing a grudge. You betcha)

Happy New Year friends! I wish you joy, health and prosperity. Send dry weather my way please xx

No shops! Well. The internet is always open. :) I agree about open-plan living, it's nice in theory, or when you don't have any kids, but eventually it doesn't work very well. At least that's what happened to us.

Karen, I feel like I've been away from reading blogs and missed yours. Hope you all are well. I know the feeling about wanting to change your space. Feel like that a lot.

Rich sounds like my hubs, he was never good at picking me up things on his work travels. I laughed last time my brother was on the same trip and he brought back some lovely jewelry for my sister-in-law and I got a dragon table runner! Lol.
Hope the house hunt goes well. I agree open plan spaces seem great, but boy once kids are teenagers like mine, it's nice to have separate spots for everyone. That's why I haven' renovated my older home much. It's got it's pockets-you know?

Post some pics of that lovely Meadow. Miss seeing you all.
Happy weekend,
xxoo Kim
