This New Year I have no resolutions, I have a sense of ennui just thinking about them, my life has already changed very much for the better due to a series of unfortunate events in 2012 which led me exactly to the place I wanted to be, life is funny like that.
2013 is already a magical world for me, I already have some lovely wee grandchildren thanks to my husband's children, but in 2013 two babies are going to be born who will rock my maternal family's world, in the next couple of weeks my middle daughter Charlotte's baby daughter will arrive ( I love how the word "arrive" makes the birth process sound so easy, as if she will float into the world on a swathe of pink tulle surrounded by butterflies!) and we will be 5 generations of women, an unbroken line, the family photo op of a lifetime, and then in May my eldest daughter is due, and another round of photos for these two, our first generation of New Zealand born babies with New Zealand born parents. I'm already busy with props and plans for the photos I am imagining.
In 2012 I launched my printed patterns, created a new user friendly website and started working fulltime on designing, my first wee trunk show is in progress in Holland Rd yarns and will move throughout the country, and I have a dream assignment in progress. I know that in 2013 this is just going to get better, with a book on the go and a lot more designs.
I hope that you too can see off 2012 with a fond farewell and welcome all that 2013 has to offer, Happy New Year everybody!
