So, my loves, 2012 is almost upon us.  Where on earth has 2011 gone??  The days/weeks/months just flew by so quickly!  Sam and Beverly will be 21 at the end of January and it simply doesn't seem possible; it only seems like such a short time since they were newborns and here they both are, all grown up already.  And as for me ~ well I turned 50 back in June, six whole months ago, and I still can't quite believe how old I now am!

In some ways I shall be happy to see the end of 2011.  It has been a funny sort of year for me ~ a kind of transition period really.  In many ways, on the surface at least, my life has just been plodding on much the same as it always did.  Inside, though, cogs have been turning; thoughts, ideas and plans have been whirling in my mind, leading to decisions being made.

None of these decision are particularly big, gasp-inducing or of earth-shattering importance but each one, whether it be teeny-weeny, small or smallish, will mean lots of changes to my life and the way I have been living it.  Some of the changes have already taken place over the past couple of months or so: adopting Nikki and Matty and the subsequent exercise involved in living with a couple of doggies, joining a gym and taking a long, hard look at my "image".

2012 will be a year of building on the little changes already made, putting some more into practice and no doubt rethinking others.  So, my loves, you can look forward (???) to reading many of my little ramblings and I am hoping that there will be many more "ups" to share with you than "downs"!

Yep, I kind of figured you would be getting plenty of exercise when you adopted Matty and Nikki, I remember thinking that I wouldn't be able to do that. :-)

A new year, I can't help but wonder what this one has in store?

Have a Happy and Prosperous New Year, my friend!
