So this is Christmas,
And what have you done?
Another year over,
And a new one just begun...
Although it's not even Christmas yet, I'm going to make this my last post of 2013. I will be off travelling with Special K and Little A, and probably won't have time to be blogging. I'll be eating some fabulous things, so keep your eyes peeled for my instagram posts, and I'll be blogging about our trip in January.
This is the year that I grew up - REALLY grew up - and had a baby. I'm a parent. A mother. Sometimes that realisation still seems surreal to me. Little A has brought so much love, light and laughter to our household - she is an absolute delight, and K and I are just besotted with her. Waiting for her arrival took up the first half of the year, and ensuring her ongoing wellbeing took up the latter half - and the rest of my life!
Food wise - there isn't much that is a standout to me. I didn't eat anywhere super fancy this year, no memorable meal that just blew my socks off and will have me reminiscing about it for years to come. It was difficult to eat out comfortably when pregnant with all the food restrictions, and now it's just difficult to eat out with a baby in tow. I hope to rectify this in 2014 - well, even starting with our little holiday to Hong Kong!
Thank you to all my dear friends and readers for visiting my blog. When I first started blogging, I did it for me, not really thinking that anyone would be reading, but I am so so thankful for this blog as it has opened up ways for me to meet some amazing people and make some fantastic friends - some that I speak to daily, and count amongst my closest. The kindness, support, and humour that everyone has shown me has been the best thing about starting this blog, and who says only freaks and weirdos exist on the Internet? I am grateful for our interactions, and am constantly blown away by how wonderful people are. The kindness of strangers is just astounding. You have all shared with me my life and the big changes that have happened in the past year - so thank you for reading!
As for my next post, I promise a post on new years day - December's Best Eats. January might be a bit light on with blogging as we'll be moving house but I have a fabulous new kitchen, so I'm looking forward to cooking and baking and blogging as a result!
Keep safe everyone. I wish you all a very Merry Christmas, and a happy new year. Thank you for being friends, supporters, readers, visitors and I hope that 2014 will be all that you hope, pray and wish for.
