The new year's fast approaching and I'm so excited. My son will be starting kindergarten, I'll be going back to working a 5-day week (since I've completed my Masters thesis) and we're buying the apartment we live in. I've got so many things planned for 2009, so I hope everything will turn out well for us. What is it about the beginning of a new year that gives us such a buzz? The chance to start anew perhaps?
Well, I've been suffering from a spot of writer's block for the last few months, and I think it has something to do with my brains being fried and my energy being zapped by all the effort put into completing my thesis. So, for the new year, I'm looking forward to regaining my vigour and to be inspired by anything and everything around me. Next year will be a fun writing adventure.
Now, to kick off the new year, I've written two special articles for Mother & Baby magazine. The first, In with the new year, talks about teaching your kids about making resolutions. The second article, The Ox Baby, tells you what you need to know if you're expecting a little one in the Year of the Ox. Happy new year everybody! May 2009 be filled with much creativity and inspiration for us all!
