This week I have realised that yes, I am a country girl. I do talk to people and my laugh is infectious at times. With the end of the year coming faster and faster toward me, I reflect on what has been 2012. The last month and a half has just flown by, I quit my job and got another, been to China for a wedding, constructed two websites for friends and wrote a 3000 word application to be the next Hugh from River Cottage in Australia. Fingers crossed.
It is raining on and off outside at the moment which leaves me smiling here while I type. One day my tank is going to get full and over flow – I can’t wait. When it rains, being outside is the last thing I want to do. Now that summer has started and the days are longer I have found myself spending more time in our vegetable patch harvesting, pruning and of course watering. I like the warmth on my skin the thought of driving down to the beach for a quick swim is more appealing than ever.
This year has been a long and windy road for Roy and I, we now own property which we live on, work has fluctuated for both of us and our to do list is not getting any smaller. There are only a couple of weeks left to enjoy the last of 2012. I hope to complete the chicken pen by then, well before we go to Woodford.
Bring on 2013 I say. Big plans and dreams to come to fruition. It is time to dig my heals into the soil and kick up some dirt and do what I love. Tell me have you have had the sudden urge to start reflecting on the events of this year? New Years is coming and have your thought about what you are going to achieve for the next one.
Maybe I am to far ahead of myself – I like big goals though.
You go girl…good luck. Your laugh is the thing that I liked a lot when I met you in Adelaide. That laugh will get you far
Thank you Tania. Bring on 2013!
Lovely reflection Lizzie. I think it’s important to reflect on where we’ve been & what’s ahead. Have a great Christmas and a wonderful 2013.
Thanks Catherine, you too.
