Up in flames
Yesterday evening, with good friends on hand, I felt like I finally bid goodbye to the old year and welcomed in the new. Rob returns to work today and so I must shake off my festive sleepiness and sharpen my wits for the adventures and challenges to come.
There are exciting projects in the pipeline; a home to be packed up and moved; a blog to be kept up to date *ahem* and through it all, two children to love and nurture.
Although I'm busy making plans for the new year, I'm trying to remember to honour the season that is still upon us. Winter is not the time for great acts, we must be kind to ourselves and each other; take our time and go gently. Keep dreaming and rest while we can, soon enough we'll be called from hibernation and nudged into action by the waking world.
What have you said goodbye to with the old year? What projects and schemes are you planning for the new year?
