Living the life and praising God on a dairy farm in Northern Victoria PLUS quilting, knitting, church stuff and of course stuff about family (especially my granddaughters Mia and Maddison)

So what do I want to achieve this year? Hard to pin it down into a few words but I did find this image on the net and it sort of sums up my intentions.
This coming year will bring a lot of changes to our home and family - Megan will be leaving home to (hopefully) go to uni, we will be getting a new kitchen and more renovating (the more depending on the $$$). I have been selected to be a part of the Dairy Australia Developing Dairy Leaders Program so will be travelling to Melbourne and Canberra for that. I've also been asked to be part of a study into hearing loss run by the National Centre for Farmer Health and that will involve travelling to Horsham. So more time in the car - more audiobooks! Even though it sounds like I will be busy, Im actually hoping to slow down a bit - I will no longer be involved in school council, where I have been president for the last 4 years as Megan is no longer at school. So no night time meetings and other meeting which will be nice. I do want to be a better help to Gary on the farm and to spend more quality time together. I know I am so blessed to have such a wonderful, caring man as my husband. Speaking of which - he wasnt quite sure what you are supposed to "do" on New Years Day, so I suggested this for him and I might add it didnt take much convincing!
And so in conclusion -
From Neil Gaiman, who says it better than I ever could... "May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you're wonderful, and don't forget to make some art - write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself."
