May all your dreams come true

Monday, December 31, 2012

I'm back in blustery, grey Antwerp after a fantastic holiday in the sun. We had a great time and all came back feeling refreshed and rejuvenated - well, apart from the jetlag. We visited all the Disney parks - what a vision that man had, although I couldn't help wondering what he would have made of the excessive crowds over the Christmas period and the high pricing of low quality food....(I'm allowed to be a bit "Grumpy Old Woman"ish, I have a Big Birthday looming). We also enjoyed exploring the local area and relaxing back at the house we'd rented. Best of all, it was lovely to spend quality time together as a family, with no interruptions from work/school/life.

So we find ourselves at New Year's Eve, traditionally a time for navel gazing. A time for looking back at our accomplishments and looking forward to future goals. Suffice it to say, 2012 has been another good year for me, I feel very blessed to live the life I live. I have one or two big fitness goals to aim for in 2013, it's good to have a focus. I'm planning to do the Brussels 20K in May and the Dodentocht (Death March) 100K in August. Tonight we will be going into Antwerp to see the new year in with the annual fireworks display over the River Schelde.

Wishing all my friends in Sparkland a very happy and healthy 2013, may all your dreams come true. See you on the other side!
