Signing off for 2017

The month of December has always this trick of just whizzing by. The stress and momentum of everything just builds up and everything seems to come together at once... shopping, cooking and baking for Christmas and year-end festivities, birthday party planning, working through a massive Christmas gift shopping list for the children, teachers, friends, family, kris kringle and everything in between.

I generally loathe the commercialism of the whole thing. So I try to pause and picture the faces of these nearest and dearest people and who they mean to me. That usually helps.

And now it's time to unplug and just chill for bit until we get to start all over again in the new year. See you on the other side!

These days my days are packed full to the brim. From the moment I wake up to the sound of Grace calling through the baby monitor and Nathan’s cheeky face peering at me over the edge of the bed… to the evening when I finally tuck them into bed and say goodnight.
