New Year Resolution

New Years Resolutions.... Let's face it, who of us keeps those going for a whole twelve months. I'm lucky if I can remember my resolutions two weeks after New Year let alone trying to keep them going for a year. So after a bit of thought about leaving behind 2009 and seeing in 2010 and what the past year was like for me, I figured I would restrict myself to blog three things about '09, or else I would be going on forever. So here they are...

1) The highlight would have to be "hands down" the arrival from the U.S in February, of Evette (no 1 daughter for those who don't know) and the only grandchildren I have, Emma (3 - below with Mummy) and Lucca (9mths - right with Poppa) for a six week holiday "Down Under in NZ". Unfortunately Jared (husband and father of 'grandies' couldn't join us.) But we pushed on anyway and had a blast. These are only a few of the hundred of photos that were taken. Lots of hugs, cuddles, laughs, tears, tantrums, and all the wonderful stuff that goes on when you have little ones around, not to mention total exhaustion. It's difficult to put into words how I felt just having them here for that short time .

2) The low point of the year and the saddest time for the whole family was that after 14 years with us, our much loved, handsome, Boxer Beau passed away on the 12 November. Our house is very quiet without him around, not only because of his personality, but there is now no more snoring to keep us awake at night.

3) I have decided that my third thing for '09 would be to Blog about the best purchase I made over the year. Yes, I know what you're all thinking who the heck wants to know about what I bought, but this is the greatest thing I have come across in a long time. It is a little egg poacher that sits in the pot and makes the best shaped, true to what they should look like poached eggs ever. Come on, you have to admit it looks pretty darn different and it works.

I challenge you to tell me of a better purchase you have made in the past 12 months that does not include cars, phones, cameras, TV's, boats etc, you know what I mean. Something very unique and different. Come on you can do it!

Happy New Year, welcome to 2010!

I think if I had to write about the best highlight of 09, and the saddest I would have picked both of those things too. As for something unique and different ... I'll think on it and get back to you.
Awesome post Mum!
