My year in review

Its that time of year to clear down the side bar and do a little self indulgent post to mark some of the things that I've done in the last year.  

Honestly looking back I can't quite believe how lucky 2013 has been for me.  I bought my own home, had some wonderful trips, managed to survive another year in the day job and got to indulge in all of my favourite pastimes.  

I'm truly excited to see where 2014 will take me.  If I could be selfish and have all the things I want it would be more time with family, more time for crafting, to bring back walking as a regular thing in my life (sadly that fell by the wayside a bit in 2013), and to be able to visit more new places.

It will be fun finding out which of these wishes I can make come true this year.   But we have other plans bubbling away in the background which if they come to fruition could suck up a fair amount of time and take me away from the things on my list, but if we can pull them off I won't mind a jot ......time will tell.

Do you have any exciting plans for 2014?  I'd love to hear all about them.

Wishing you all a Happy and Healthy 2014
