And the New Year is here!

Last year I faced so many challenges and changes to my life. It seemed that all the things that made me happy were put on the back burner. I realised in October that it just wasn't working and I needed to do something's to change my/our life.

A few little things have happened but there are a lot of things that still need to happen and put in place for my little family to really thrive.

What I realised is that I had made many good decisions over 2013 and then some really bad ones. The bad ones effected the whole family and I see now how that is just not fair. Especially to the little people in my life and of course not to the hubby.

So this is the year for more "them time" as I got a lot of "me time" last year.

I have decided that Daughter E doing dancing is more important than staying late at the office. So I will finish work on time to make that happen.

I have decided that playing on the floor with Baby O is more important than rushing around the house trying to clean things that are going to be dirty in the morning anyway.

I have decided that having date night with Hubby must happen more than once a year. Even if it is just some time together once the kids are in bed.

I also decided that not going to University and studying was my biggest regret. So I enrolled in Teaching Period 3 last year and am now on my way.

So this is my starting platform from where I are going to leap into a great 2014 and beyond. I will continue on with my simple, healthy home cooked meals for my family and share all the good ones with you. I would LOVE to say I'm going to get fit and exercise this year, but I know that is never going to happen.

Hope you have had a fruitful 2013 and it has given you some things to reflect on and work with for this year.

Feel free to share if you have, I would love to know!
