goodbye 2009 ...

It's been a busy couple of weeks. We had planned a holiday to the UK to spend Christmas with Aidan's family. We haven't been back in over 4 years. But the plans all fell apart with the threatened BA cabin crew strike. We had to make a call at the last minute to postpone our trip until 2010. But as nothing was planned for Christmas here, we made the decision to travel to Hong Kong for Christmas. We had a blast, although it wasn't the peaceful Christmas we had planned. Some photos will follow.

Today we are off to my parents place by the beach on the South Coast of NSW. The relaxing break will do us all the world of good. The chance to unwind, and spend some more family time together is always good.

I've decided to do the Project 365 in 2010. It's all about taking a photo-a-day, to capture the 'details' of your life...rather than just the BIG moments. So I'm getting myself prepared. Wish me luck on the journey. I have a separate blog where I am going to document the year ahead.

So as I reflect back on 2009, we have had a fantastic year. Em has had a great year at school, culminating with being awarded the principal's Award for Continuous Outstanding Achievement on the last day of school. One child is chosen from each year, and our girl was the winner for Year 3. We were so proud of her. Aidan follwed his thespian dreams, and had 2 parts in the play Arsenic and Old Lace, performing for 3 months at the Cronulla Arts Theatre. And I have had my dream of being published come to life, with 2 layouts published in Scrapbooking Memories this year, with more to come in 2010. And above all, we are all healthy and happy! What more can you ask for!

To all our family and friends, we wish you joy and happiness throughout 2010. Here's to a wonderful year ahead.

Till next time,
Di xx
