it's been a good year in lots of respects, and incredibly crappy in others (mainly healthwise) ... but i think I have my mojo back ... I was first awake this morning and have seen off the others and am, even now, before midnight, going to be last to bed ... I'm back!

we had a really good last day of the year ... we're at the parentals and have spent the day running around picking up steel and piles of rubbish and putting them in places where things will happen (namely, being taken to the steel merchant to be sold, and being set on fire to help burn out old logs and stumps once the fire bans are off [remember it's summer here, even though we haven't been having the warm in nsw ... back in tas it's much better!] ... we then proceeded to take down most of a giant wattle tree in the backyard, so dad can now build a cubby for the grandkids - when I say giant I mean giant - the 10foot stump is still there, and it has to be nearly 1.5 metres around ... dad is the original gorilla man, practically hanging from his toes whilst wielding a chainsaw to take it down from the top down, so as to not destroy the lovely trees below it ... mainly succeeded!

And it's been a great holiday at home, lovely Christmas, my nephew came over for a sleepover ├žause we were here (he's 8, how great is it he wanted to spend time with us!), I've caught up with a heap of friends - and hopefully two more tomorrow, and we've had a great time with mum and dad ... what a great way to end the year!

I hope you all have had a wonderful last day of the year (or are heading into it!) and wish you all the best and (my traditional Christmas greeting) God's richest blessings for the year ahead! Bring on 2012!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
