It's with sunburnt skin and bulging baby bump that I sit at this computer. Days have passed since i've dedicated any amount of time to the internet, abandoning it for real life, sunshine and the crystal waters of our local beaches.
Right now Dave is surfing, the kids are splashing in a little plastic wading pool, the dishwasher and the ceiling fan are competing for white noise domination and lego lines the floors of just about every room. It's a picture of domestic perfection.*
Tonight, once the kids have devoured the hot dogs I plan to make them, Dave and I will sit down with a cold drink and cheese platter and talk about the year that has been and the year that is to come. We might make a resolution or two, laugh about some of our adult tantrums (okay, mostly mine) and dream about a future where a mortgage does not exist.
We'll be grateful that we've had the opportunity to realise some of our dreams from 2012 (we did eat a lot of good food from our garden and manage to save a bit of money) and push on towards becoming a little less dependant on supermarket giants whilst resisting the temptation to become total food wankers in the process.
Whatever you're doing to bring in the new year, I hope it's fabulous.
p.s Tomorrow, on the 1st January 2013 i'll be starting the Artists Series I mentioned a while a ago. I've got some really exciting artists in the mix!
