2015…gee! Where did this year go?! As my mum always says, the older you get, the quicker the years seem to go by and I really think she’s spot on.
Think back to your school years…holidays always seemed so faaaarrrrrr away. And the Christmas break seemed to go on forreevvveeerrrr. Nowadays, even the mandatory annual 10-day leave that we’re forced to take at work just doesn’t seem long enough.
Christmas comes all too quickly – gifts are always left just those few days too late leading to running around packed malls in panic stricken states – followed too soon by the overly commercialised Valentines Day. Before the hearts have been cleared off the shelves, my favourite luxuries (hollow white easter eggs, those 6packs where eating one never suffices!!) make a quick appearance and are off the shelf in the blink of an eye replaced with Mothers’ Day paraphernalia. Fathers’ Day is the following month and then before you know what’s hit you, it’s tinsel and Christmas trees again!!! Where does the time go????
Oh well – just like that, it’s 2015. 2014 has been a really good year for my family, ending it off on a high note with the birth of little Riley, our second born son. Of course there’s been lots of lows, (everybody has these) but thankfully more highs! Here’s hoping that 2015 is an even better year.
To you and your family from the Howes, Happy New Year xxx
