Today is the first day back to school which in our house really kick-starts the new year.
The holidays were wonderful. I spent lots of quality time with family and had lots of fun with friends. For me Christmas is always about spending time with those you love.
This past holiday I learned 2 things about myself.
- While spending a lovely afternoon Christmas shopping with my niece, who is a beautiful (mature) young lady, I was referred to by a saleslady as her ‘mother’. What I had envisioned as 2 females ‘out on the town’ having fun, swapping stories, trying on clothing together was now shattered. I must not look as young as I feel!
- One of my cousins who faithfully read my blog told me that I had inspired her to re-decorate her living room. She had decided one day as she walked into her living room that it was time for a ‘change’. Encouraged by my blog she tackled the re-decoration of the room with confidence. Bravo!
In life you win some, you lose some. I am hoping that 2013 is a year of balance!
