Goodbye 2010, Hello 2011

Another year has passed, and now I reflect back, but can't remember much at all! I shall try to remember the highlights and other significant events:

  • So many changes for Charlie, we're starting to understand his words and sentences, his vocabulary has grown substantially, and he's mastered the art of tantrums!
  • Our eldest son, Callum, left home and moved to the big city.No longer a boy, he's living a man's life now!
  • Guthrie finished his last year of high school;
  • Lily started her first year of high school, impressing all the teachers with her maturity;
  • Freya enjoyed school, participated in the Tournaments of Minds, and won the endeavour award in her class. I'm very proud.
  • Michael reached the milestone of his 50th birthday. Wow! He's still a young man to me.
  • We celebrated our 20th anniversary. Boy, where did that time go?
  • I enjoyed another wonderful year of being a stay at home mum. It's very definitely my vocation.
And last, and by no means least, just after my 44th birthday, I was surprised and delighted to find out I was pregnant. After the initial shock, we came to accept that bub number 6 would join our family. Sadly, over Christmas, I miscarried.

So, 2010 ended on rather a sad note for me.

But 2011 is a new year, full of promise. I've made no resolutions, no plans. I just want to take it day by day and really appreciate and enjoy what I have in my life.

  1. Angie,
    I was so terribly sad to hear you lost your baby. Your life is obviously very full and happy, but I know it doesn't balance out the sadness when you lose a dream. Be gentle with yourself. Thinking of you. Susan xx
