Goodbye 2012

Well, it's the end of the year, and in my little world it was a big one. We made a big decision about where to live, got pregnant, moved house, had a horrible family bereavement, nine months of feeling like poo, went through the shock of a heart scare with the baby, had the baby, the baby was fine, learnt wtf to do with the baby. It rained all year. It was actually fun to have the Olympics in town (it was hilarious how quiet the tube went). And now... breathe.

Arthur seems to be an actual superbaby – he's chilled, fun, pretty much sleeps through the night.  He's never had one tantrum. We've been really lucky so far, but the last couple of years have taught me that you should never expect too much calm after the storm. Here's hoping for some mild sunshine through the rain. And the odd cocktail or two. I haven't had a strong cocktail since I can't remember when, so tonight I'm making Old Fashioneds. Wishing you all a happy and peaceful New Year.

(Oh, I'm not going to write my birth story. I'm over it.)

  1. Happy New year Dude.

    Here is hoping I can lift most of this post next year! (Minus the bereavement, heart scare, rain and Olympics).

    Looking forward to catching up in Norf London very, very soon.

  4. Happy New Year Caroline! He is utterly gorgeous and I wish the calm after the storm lasts. (And I think you now see why I never wrote my birth stories!) xx

  5. Happy New Year Caroline! Arthur is utterly gorgeous and I wish the calm after the storm lasts. (And now I guess you see why I too didn't share my birth stories!) xx

  6. Here's hoping that 2013 is a little more chilled (although somehow I suspect chilled is not the most likely adjective with a young baby becoming a toddler!). Nx

  7. He is sooo cute and what a sweetie to sleep through the night. Unlike my boy, aged 2, never slept through a whole night and I stopped asking when will it happen.

    Happy New Year!
