farewell to 2011 and welcome to 2012

well, 2011 was another quick year!

i'm not really in the right frame of mind to do a review of my year just now - mum was taken in to hospital in stockholm yesterday, my brother is with her but it's not the same as being able to see her for myself. for now, i'm not moving far from the phone so my brother can keep me updated.

let's just say that i did some of the things on my list, didn't do others, and even managed to do some things that weren't on it. 

this year, i think i'm going to take a more measured, relaxed approach and just see what happens!

i wish for you and yours a year full of peace, love, hope, good health, happiness and joy, with a lot of creativity thrown in for good measure.

last year we put up lanterns to welcome in the new year and we weren't the only ones - apparently it caused quite a stir on the local ufo-spotting website.

Hope all goes well with your mum - fingers crossed xx
Often the best plans become way laid and the relaxed approach is probably the best way to go

thanks kate :)x

you're totally right, best laid plans and all that ... i'm definitely taking the relaxed approach this year (will still probably be an obsessive list maker though!)

I hope your Mum improves quickly, fingers and toes crossed for you. Make lots of lists, they're good things but then only do the the most important 3 items on it then you'll be less stretched.

narkeymarkey said...

thanks angela :) all those crossed fingers and toes must be doing the trick as it looks like mum might get out of hospital today.

like your top 3 on the list idea, it seems i'm no good at not making lists so this sounds like good advice :)x
