Welcome 2009

Halfway through the month already!

Christmas was wonderful. Utterly, blissfully, fantastically wonderful. Thanks to Adas and Lin, our WA holiday was restful and eventful – the perfect mix of relaxation and outings. Truly, going there for a holiday is a REAL holiday. I didn’t have to cook or clean or drive anywhere. I felt a bit guilty being so lazy, but it was wonderful and they are wonderful, and we had the best time. Thank you so much xxx

So now we are back. It is hot and we are spending much time in the pool and with the girls friends over (to make up for the lack of playdates they had during the year when I couldn’t be bothered!). Holly had a sleep over last night, I am yet to see her, but I bet when she walks in the door she will be tired and grumpy.

My back in improving since I hurt it the second last day in Perth. It is now sciatica of the worst degree and yesterday I had acupuncture on it to alleviate some of the pain. It didn’t really work, but I am hoping for improvement over the next few days. if not, I may need another go. The needles didn’t hurt, but the massage and prodding after the needles did. I’m sure I have bruises 🙂

I’ve had a few shifts back at the Newborn Hearing Screening at the hospital and I remember how much I love it. I really love it. I wish that I could do it as my main job, but in a few years I’ll be in a better position to do it regularly. I just have to bide my time and get these kids off the school first. Not too long to go.

I was just looking back at my aims for 2008 and I achieved all of what I said I wanted to do (ie, 10km fun run, new wardrobes etc). This year, I want to do 2 x10km fun runs, finish the inside renovations, get started on the front landscaping and have the verandas rebuilt (after they were demolished in the roof renovations). I also wish for personal self satisfaction, as I am way too hard on myself. Self Confidence needs a good hard look at!!

So Happy New Year to you. Hope it is a great one. Love each day and live it too the full. Don’t sweat the small stuff and remember that everyone just wants to be happy… so let them!!

Hip Hip Hooray!!!!!!!!!!!!
