First and Last

Today (Saturday 31st December, 2011) I had my first swim for the summer and my last swim for the year.

I have always loved the water; it is so cleansing and refreshing. So what better way to see out 2011 and welcome in 2012 than going for a beautiful swim. I love swimming in Northland as the water is always clear and the sand is so white. Plus where we swim there are not many other people in the water so it is bliss.

I have really fallen off the blogging waggon over the last few months. I really want to blog more regularly in 2012. We still have another fortnight off work and this means that I can get started on writing many of the blogs that I have not had the time to write in the last quarter of 2011. I love Christmas but I am glad that it is over so that I can relax and focus on things that I want to get done.

I do always try and write meaningful blogs but sometimes they take me a long time to write and there are gaps between blogs. So I would like to try and write something a couple of times a week as I really enjoy writing and since being away from work I have had a lot of blog ideas. I also want to take photos every day and now I have the means to do that. Hopefully, photos will make my blog a little more exciting/interesting.

Goodbye 2011; I am kind of glad you are almost over as it has been a hard year not just for my friends and family, but for many people and Aotearoa.

I am determined to leave some “shit” behind in 2011 as it has no place in my life in 2012.

So welcome 2012; you are going to be a great year for us, our families and our friends.

Happy New Year!

What are you doing to celebrate the end of 2011 and the beginning of 2012?
