By golly time has gotten away from us hasn’t it I hope you had a wonderful Christmas whatever you were doing. I was very spoilt by my husband and kids…I was presented with a beautiful MacBook Air So I have been going through this learning curve with it, I love it, and now I am ‘Apple’d out’ with all my appley gadgets Whatever opportunity I have had I play around on my Mac discovering new things…the control/command function does take a bit of getting used to.
Regarding Clyde our elf…with the kids off school, blogging about Clyde was a bit difficult, so I will just do a quick blast of pictures
Husband received a lovely hamper full of yummy goodies from a client, which Clyde could not resist!
Clyde trying to built his own Christmas Grotto
My Favourite…I had a special photo album on my personal Facebook page that had various pics of Clyde and the Kids (for obvious reasons the ones of my kids won’t be published here), lots of family and friends had been following Clyde, and if I had not got a picture up of him I would have a wall full of messages wondering whats happened to him…so, I posted this one on his last night with us and I was hit with lots of messages pleading with Clyde not to leave
This was a special one for the kids I also got lots of pics of them with Clyde saying goodbye to him, the blue child was really upset to see Clyde go back to the North Pole…but, it was short-lived due to the fact that the big red man was not only taking Clyde home but will be arriving with presents.
And boy, did they get presents!! Christmas was a case as for most, a time for over indulging on food and drink, wishing the family would get back to work and school by the 2nd.
I haven’t made any new years resolutions, it was my 1yr anniversary of quitting smoking That I am super proud of, it’s still difficult at times, and boy after the year I have had I don’t know how the heck I managed to stay of the cigarettes!
I look back at the year with much sadness and trauma, between my Bells Palsy, the Rheumatoid Arthritis diagnosis, which was then changed to Lupus, and also the loss of my beautiful fur baby Molly….This year I am determined to make 2012 a better year, obviously those things that happened to me last year were unavoidable, it was going to happen regardless and, although I went through a grieving process with my Lupus diagnosis, towards the end of the year, and mainly thanks to many other Auto-Immune advocates out there, I am learning to live with the illness. 2012 for me continues to be a year where I will keep practicing my taekwondo, and possibly will do another 10k run.
Other than that, I am also starting work next week, I was approached by my TKD instructor, who is rapidly expanding his classes and locations to become his Marketing and IT Manager, he wants to now focus purely on his classes and have a small team work alongside him. It will be nice to get back into the working environment, and I also get to work during school hours, during school holidays he runs a camp for the kids and my kids go to them anyway so childcare at work is an added bonus
Anyway, whoever you are and wherever you are, I sincerely wish you a happy healthy 2012 and thank you for following me for another year
