I love this time of year, it makes me feel so motivated and refreshed! The buzz of Christmas and the new year has finished and now we can all get on with renewed vigour!
You may be wondering where the heck i've been... Well, to begin with i basically just sacked this off to concentrate on Christmas. I had a couple of ideas for cute Christmas themed posts, but was mainly just going to chill out and enjoy the holiday season.
Then disaster struck and my Dad had a massive heart attack. Thankfully, after a pretty worrisome and intense period of time, he was released from the hospital - on Christmas Eve! He's still having a lot of ongoing treatment, but he is better.
I shoved all thoughts of this blog and my other non-essential obligations to the back of my mind and i concentrated on Dad, Christmas, the kids, the rest of my family and then finally my daughters birthday a few days ago.
During all this commotion my laptop conked out on me too! Apparently they don't stand up too well to toddlers bashing them and pushing them off furniture. I know, who'd have thunk?! Thankfully, i know an awesome technical fella and he got me a new hard drive and i am now back in action. Not so good is the fact that there was a hole between my last back up and the images on my camera memory cards. So i might have lost a fair few pictures of the house. Obviously i can take more "after" shots, but my "before's" aren't so replaceable. Boooo!
I am trying not to stress about it though. I still have all the photos of the kids, and that's what's important. :)
Sooooo..... Once i have re-installed Photoshop, enabling me to view and edit RAW image files again, i will be able to show you what i have been up to.
Oh i have had a real January spark going on, let me tell you! The whole house right now is tidy AND clean. Oh yeah baby! I have the playroom to show you, and my daughters new bedroom! Oh so much! I can't wait to fill you in.
