Right now I have a stinky cold so am in bed with a roll of toilet paper by my side whilst Dexter is watching TV and Anders has gone to a car boot sale and take Marvin & Carly for a walk. I hate not feeling great and I thankfully this doesn't happen very often, but as I am I thought this might be a good time to kickstart this journal again, my reminder of events, little and big.
So 2013, new year eh! I am struck with how often this is viewed like the passing of a person with a simultaneous birth of a child that only lives to be one! I therefore like to think of New Year like a birthday. Thinking about it perhaps it can feel like starting to read a new book or moving onto a new chapter in one you are currently reading. It could also be a new paragraph or new sentence but ultimately whatever the analogy, I hope that it develops beautiful lasting memories and images in my mind and those of the people I have contact with.
With that thought in mind, I am going to get up, shower and enjoy a lovely day with my lovely family with the belief that 2013 is going to be a year full of 365 days of events and memories or 353 as this day is 13 and like the year 2013 you know something is happening, but you don't know what it is..... until it has happened :)
