Annus Horribilis

It is almost 2013 and I have to say I am not sorry to see the end of 2012.  It has been a tough year for us.  There have been a few highlights but generally it has not been a good year.  Business has just limped along and the financial problems have overshadowed the whole year.  I have tried to stay in the moment but it has been a challenge.  

It has meant that the lows have left me feeling drained and struggling to keep up a positive outlook.  I have felt that I am letting everyone down because I am usually the driving force in the family.  Everyone seems to look to me for direction and some days that has been too much responsibility.

My whole system is out of whack and the energy of this year has at times left me really low.  My blogging has probably suffered the most.  I have taken lots of photos but just haven't had the energy to transcribe that into a post.  Instagram was joined in April and I have found support from that community and have shared there instead of my blog.

I am unsure of my direction in 2013?  I do feel that it will be a better year so we shall see.  I am not going to put pressure on myself and say I will blog more often.  I am hoping that will be a natural progression as the year unfolds.

So as our beautiful Queen said a few years ago, it was 'Annus Horribilis' !!

Goodbye 2012!    Here is my year in photos ....

Welcome 2013!

Happy New Year to you, I hope 2013 is good for us all.

Love and Blessings

Post Script

Yes Billy and I had a lovely time in Cairns.  Thank you for all your kind wishes.

We had a nice walk along the Esplanade and then a delicious dinner at a Balinese Restaurant whilst the  boys had a great day swimming in the pool and playing with their cousins back on the Tablelands.

Here is the Ink we got for those who were keen to see.  We are both very happy with the results.

Today is our 12th wedding anniversary, how amazing is that!  What a lucky number day this is.  My brother and his family are up here for a holiday so Billy and I are taking advantage and leaving the boys with Uncle Ian and escaping to Cairns for the day for a new tattoo and a dinner date.

I hope you have a lovely 12/12/12 too   :-)
