Happy new year ...

in 2009 I ...
Brought my preservative cutting simple living attempts to the general public through my blog.
I started sewing, knitting and crocheting again.
I regained some passion for paper.
I learned to bake bread, shortbread and gingerbread.
I made labneh for the first time.
I watched my Children grow and develop in leaps and bounds.
I learned to communicate a little better with my partner.
I learned about cutting losses and moving forward.
I learned 'those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.'  ( Dr Seuss )
I learned who my true friends were.
I grew potatoes, garlic, strawberries, tomatoes and dwarf carrots again - with mixed results.
I grew lettuce and onions for the first time also with mixed results ... lol.

Most importantly and summarising it all  ...
I grew as a person, a parent and a partner.

Happy new Year.
