When I was a child I used to calculate and re-calculate the age I would be in the Year 2000. Today, the stunning sunrise that greeted me the first day of the new millennium is a misty memory, and I can't believe I'm now having to calculate the age I was that year.
When B was no more than a dottie in my arms, I remember saying to a friend and colleague that I wouldn't be re-joining the workforce until - gasp - 2009. Well, that year that seemed so far away has arrived with lightning speed. My time as a dedicated housewife and mother has gone in the blinking of an eye.
I wish you a very happy and peaceful New Year. I wish you success in your endeavours and true contentedness in your relationships. I hope 2009 brings you everything you wish for yourself and your loved-ones. And I hope you'll take one teeny-tiny piece of advice from me : don't blink, or you'll miss it.
