“The ode lives upon the ideal, the epic upon the grandiose, the drama upon the real.”
Hasn’t 2013 just been flying by? Missed me? I’ve been missing you all!! Here’s a look at what’s been going on around these parts apart from heaps more snow and grey clouds.
January Round Up
1. A whole lot of fun
We had an amazing Christmas! We celebrated with family up in the north of Sweden and it was perfect. It was our first Christmas where Bubba was old enough to catch on to the whole thing and it was super fun to be apart of. The Flash totally behaved and had a fun time too. Everyone was relaxed. Everyone had fun. I didn’t even complain about the cold.
2. A whole lot of not sleeping
Oh the Flash. Such a delightful baby. Such a happy little thing. All smiles. All giggles and charisma. During the day. But during the night, she turns into devil baby. From 2am to 6am she likes to wake up. A lot. I blame myself. Who wouldn’t want to spend as much time as possible with me? This has been going on for the last few months and so by now, I’m buggered. When night-time plays its melody, the kids are asleep and it’s time to blog, I choose to snooze. Sorry folks.
3. A whole lot of sniffles
Every bastard over here has either a stomach bug or a cold at the moment. Yes, all of Sweden is sick, it even made front page news last weekend. And we are so patriotic, we got in on the action too. We’ve all been hit one by one, what a delight.
Blog Central 2013 – what you can expect:
I didn’t start 2013 out with too many resolutions apart from a) eat more dumplings, b) wear more yellow. So far, I’ve had a cracker of a year!!! As you could tell by my lack of blogging in January, once again my real life has been greatly interrupting my virtual one. So as we launch into February – the month of Love – let me tell you that I am committed to buggering off my family and making a real go of my blog. None of this, ‘I’ll be a better mum crap’, I’ll be making more time for me, so let’s see what is in store.
TSH and I have set our theme for the year. Last year, we had Year of the Dragon, our creative tour de force and now let me present to you, drum roll : 2013 Year of the Epic. Yes, our guiding principle this year will be ‘EPIC’. Love, adventure, happiness; we will endeavour to do things in epic proportions. This includes but is not limited too: TSH turning 40, me complaining about Swedish weather and a big announcement.* Applause. Open the red curtain on 2013, it’s show time!!!!!
How has your 2013 been treating you? Anything epic happened yet?
*I am not pregnant. Just thought I should mention that considering a recent spate of pregnancy announcements by my favourite bloggers here, here and here. Seems to be a bit of a trend at the moment and although I am trendy, I’m giving this one a miss. (2013 will be epic, but let’s not go crazy.)
