Balancing Act

January has flown past me at great speed and the year is shaping up to be a busy one.  This month is also the busiest time in the shoe store and I've been working extra as a result, with not much time to put my feet up!  When I do finally fall into bed, my dreams all feature feet and shoes!!

So I'm planning a couple of small breaks - one to attend a family wedding in March and another one purely for R & R, also with family.  Then a bigger holiday in the second half of the year, if all works out.

Keeping the balance is tricky sometimes, though it is possible!

I bought these liliums on New Year's Eve when they were all in bud.  Overnight they burst open just like fireworks on the Sydney Harbour Bridge!

I woke to a beautiful blue sky day, so Jess the Border Collie and I took off for an early morning walk with the bellbirds tinkling all around us.  A great way to start the year!

I haven't chosen a word for 2012.  I'm thinking I will just let things unfold.  Though this will be the year of increased fitness and well being, taking care of myself with a little yoga, continuing to enjoy the work that I do and to try and squeeze a little more art back into my life, I miss it!  And a holiday............... exciting!
