Happy New Year!

Well, 2012 has arrived and so far New Year’s Day has been uneventful – but nice. A peaceful New Year’s Eve spent eating fish and chips, and a quiet New Year’s Day with just us and the rats. I’ve done my fair share of loud, drunken and long New Year’s Eves – with singing, dancing and general drunken antics. This year, as daft as it sounds I had the best New Year’s Eve ever.

I sat reading my Kindle, “When God was a Rabbit” for anyone who is interested, snuggled in bed by 10pm and not long after I snoozed. Waking up to the sound of merriment and fireworks at what must have been around midnight, I realised that I was exactly where I wanted to be be. I thought about the last year – with good times and bad times, the loss of loved ones, but also the gaining of new friends, new jobs and most importantly our new house and lease of life. And it made me thankful – made me think that I am extremely lucky to have who and what I have in my life. And not only thinking about what has gone by, but also what is to come – 2012 brings new dreams and hopes – our wedding, the holiday of a lifetime and who knows what else.

I’m proud of where we have got to and proud of what we have achieved. It has been tough, and we have faced hurdles along the way but I couldn’t be happier than I am right now.

And I feel lucky to be able to say that on the very first day of the year. Let’s see what dreams we can achieve!
