Happy New Year

A new year, and I thought I would blow the dust off the old blog! Before I start spouting about the new year, I thought I would just do a basic recap of the latter half of 2009...

We bought a house and moved in October - and now live beside the seaside.

I found a temporary job the week before we moved house, and found out just before Christmas that I have been kept on as a permanent member of staff.

The kids both won bronze medals at the Scottish Tang Soo Do championships.

The crafting front has been quiet the past few months, although I do now actually have my own craft room now - more of that to come in future posts ;)

So that was the end of 2009, now for 2010. I've decided to resurrect the blog - and to try and update it on a regular basis. I have a couple of things in the pipeline for this year that I hope will be blogworthy, and would like to keep myself on track by blogging about it.

Ever since my beloved Gran died, just over 2 years ago, I have kept a daily diary. I inherited all her photos, and her diaries - she wrote a couple of lines a day in a week to view slimline diary, and reading them after she died gave lots of little insights into her daily life. So I decided that I would do the same, just jotting down basic info about the day. I have 2 of these diaries completed now, and have just opened my new one to start writing in today. I finished off my 2009 one with a list of memorable things from the year. And looking back, I realise that 2009 was a pretty special year for us, and one in which we were very lucky in many different ways. But sometimes I wish I had blogged a bit more, to record more than just a few lines. So here's to a great 2010, and regular blogging.... Well, I can but hope ;)
