Day 42 - 2012 - one step closer....

Happy 2012! - now I can say he's back this year!......even if it isn't until December.  Still, his first leave is in 13 weeks - doesn't sound too bad, we've done 6 already.

Welcomed in the New Year with some great friends who have four gorgeous, feisty girls.  The boys tend to get a lot of attention when we visit - not always the kind they want, but one day I'm sure they'll love it!  

We managed to stay up until twelve with the help of some red bull and a nostalgic, musical dander through the 80's - I'd forgotten how much I love Simple Minds!!  Brings back such strong memories, and New Year's eve is a good time for a little happy reflection - especially this one.   

Shared a bed with the youngest who slept in a perpendicular position - and was woken up by a game of hide and seek - in my room!  Sometimes I feel guilty about how much I'm looking forward to them going back to school......

Got home and rang round family to say Happy New year.  I told my step mother about the oldest having nits - she had INSISTED on making him hug and kiss her goodbye, even though he wasn't at all keen.  That will teach her.

Too tired to make any NY resolutions today.....

  1. That's exactly what I said this New Year! Not quite as long as you to wait, but still a flipping long time!
