Here's what my livejournal world looked like - Markus and Patrick focussed.
Jan: Our little cutie has had a ball this christmas - he is interacting with us a lot more, lots of smiles and laughs when he sees us, lots of raspberries being blown!
Feb: I have been feeling so up and down since Friday last week and over the weekend spent a lot of time writing my thoughts in my personal journal.
Mar: I loved this Guardian article about Girl Guides going from strength to strength!
April: I am loving my new running tools!
May: Sometimes i wonder what I get done with my (precious) spare time.
June: This week our little lad finally figured out how to roll from lying on back to being on front!
July: Here is a sneak peek of the photo shoot we did on my birthday in May!
Aug: I was so sad to hear tonight that Maeve Binchy had died.
Sept: We celebrated Markus' birthday a few weeks late - august was just too busy with guests and MBA exams...
Oct: As goal focussed as I am, always working for the next thing, waiting for things to be perfect, I am working on living in the moment and enjoying/being grateful for the lived in moment.
Nov: My "Not Nanowrimo November" challenge starts today, and here is my handwritten chart to inspire me.
Dec: This has been a lovely weekend - Markus and Patrick met Samichlaus at our local supermarket, I made mincepies, it snowed lots, I ran in the snow and started my christmas shopping in the lovely Pastorini toy shop.
A winning end to the week :-) http://t.co/XMaVywgV
