2013: More laughter, more gin

More laughter, more gin

So tomorrow night marks the end of another year.

A new one stretches ahead of us, the shiny promise of it is yet to be discovered. For many people 2012 has been a hard year; it seems to have been a year of great change, if nothing else. I don’t think I know anyone that hasn’t had something big happen to them in one way or another.

For us, there have been many. We have moved house, I have changed jobs, new friends have come into our lives and old ones have confirmed their exits. We go into 2013 with new challenges ahead of us, exciting things, things to stretch us and make us grow.

There are decisions to be made and some things will have to change, but for now, we are waiting. Getting through this holiday. It will all be there waiting for us when we get back.

Some constants remain; my blog being one of them. It’s been a full year now, just over in fact. Sharing bits and pieces of our lives and finding a sense of comfort and support in building this little space.

Some posts have been read widely, others have sunk with barely a glance. But it doesn’t matter. The writing has been the important aspect, and for that I am forever grateful.

I thought I would share my top five posts for 2012, based solely on page views. The are the ones that obviously resonated again and again, for different reasons for different people.

  1. Tres Chic – a Parisian Poodle Party
  2. The top 5 things you need to know about Melatonin
  3. Look into those eyes and tell me different
  4. What would I tell you?
  5. So begins…

For me, I don’t have a favourite. All were valid when I wrote them. All were part of the story.

But I do want to say thank you. Thank you for reading along, for commenting, for sharing my posts and giving me feedback. For taking the time to have my writing delivered to your inbox and letting me into your world. For allowing me my rambling, ranty posts, supporting me through the harder ones and cheering with me for the good ones.

Here’s to a 2013 filled with more good posts than bad; more celebrations than sadness. More gin. More laughter. For all of us.
