Come on in, 2012… we’ve been expecting you!

Isn’t it gorgeous? Sydney welcomed 2012 with an amazing show of fireworks – all choreographed to the theme ‘Time to Dream’. We were happily ensconced at a nearby friend’s house and watched it all unfold on the telly. I’ve always loved fireworks and last night’s were awesome!

The Provider tells me we’ll be out on Sydney Harbour for the next New Year; apparently this was his plan for what we’d be doing THIS year but as they say, life is what happens when you’re busy making plans. We had lots of fun regardless; seriously, is there anything better than being with a bunch of great friends on nights like these?

The first day of January began with a rare sleep-in; I don’t think anyone was up before 10am, not even the notoriously early rising Son #3. Walking outside with my coffee, I was pleasantly surprised by the warmth of the morning air. Even my mysterious guitar-playing neighbour was practising with added pizzazz. The reason?

SUMMER HAD FINALLY ARRIVED! *throws arms in the air with glee* Mother Nature has finally decided to give this whole summer thing another chance. Let’s hope she doesn’t tire of the idea any time soon. I’m enjoying catching up on my Vitamin D stores.

Tomorrow, we’re packing up and heading north to Port Stephens for the annual family holiday. (Hence my pleas to Mother Nature). We have one whole week of rest and relaxation coming up – there’ll be swimming, lazing about, poking through the local shops, reading, eating… and just being together as a family. I love this time of year for that very reason. Will make the effort of dragging my tired body around today cleaning, washing and packing gear totally worth it. I’m taking the laptop along for the ride so all things going well, I shall be blogging along the way.

Will finish by wishing you all a wonderful New Year and my hope that 2012 will be all that you wish it to be. Please accept my heartfelt thanks for all your lovely messages, blog feedback and kind support over the past year. It is so very much appreciated. 🙂

    Welcoming the New Year in is like welcoming a Vampire into your house…"As long as you don't kill me…."
