Hello 2012 I am Glad You are Here

Well hello 2012!!

It is so great to see you and what a cracker of a day you decided to be for the first day of the year. Today we had our first summer’s beach day. Thank you for that!

New Years Day 2012 on the Beach

Hello 2012

I was happy lying under the shade of my beach tent, reading my France Lonely Planet Guide and dreaming of a year of travel.

How did you start your year off? Hopefully not too hungover so you could enjoy it.

2011 was a year of hard work for myself and Craig. We have laid a lot of groundwork for our blogs and I am excited that this year we should see quite a lot happening as a result of that.

Here are the things I am focusing most on this year:


  • Improving my health, energy levels and losing at least 6kgs.
  • Family travel to Europe for the Olympics
  • More “Me” time- getting to bed earlier, meditating daily and reading more
  • More time with my family


  • Develop some of my own products
  • Earn a full time income from our blogs
  • Start blog and social media consulting

  • Be more consistent with my podcasts– including interviewing special guests
  • Develop some products centred around making your mojo work for you
  • Site redesign
  • include more photography (eeek- help!) I now publish a Daily Photo
  • Continue to maintain a positive atmosphere
  • Grow my readership and fan page community

There are always other little things I want to focus and work on, but for now these are my priorities.

    I’ve not mapped out detailed resolutions but have thought of things I want to focus on. Priorities are definitely family and each person in the family, including myself. Me-time, sleep, meditation or reflective time, my health, pretty much like your personal goals except (sob sob) no family trip to Europe. I still need to ponder my career and blog a bit more.

    I hope you get where you want to in 2012. Keenly following your journey “there”. 🙂

      Me time is definitely essential for us Mums- especially Mums that blog!

    2012 didn’t wait for me, it’s already got ahead of me! I haven’t spent a single moment stressing about resolutions and trying to make it a better year. I do, however want to set some positive goals. In fact your ones look pretty good to me ;).


    • Caz

      That is awesome that you haven’t had to stress about resolutions. You can steal my ones if you wish 🙂

    You look very well for someone who is just out of hospital. Great to see you looking so well.
    Love your resolutions.
    I also started the New Year dreaming of travel … amongst other things.
    Here’s to making more of our dreams comes true in 2012.

      Thanks Bronnie! I am recovering pretty well, but I was doped up on panadeine forte in this picture 🙂
      I hope you can fit more travel into your year!
