The last walk of the year

2013 has probably be the year with the least blogging since I started blogging 8 or 9 years ago (I don't remember exactly when it was). And that's ok, I've been working more hours than ever after having kids, and juggling work, kids and trying to fit in some hobbies means that the choice is between blogging and knitting/reading. While in years past, I went for the former, the balance just needs to be redressed a little. So this little blog may look a bit abandoned, but it isn't really, it's just turned from main focus of my little spare time to one amongst others.

For the first time in a long while, I'm off for more than 2 weeks in a row, it's even a bit more than 3 weeks. So we're spending the holidays with family, friends and holidaying, and what seemed like an eternity of course is now looking like it's running out of our hands far far too quickly.

And in between the torrential rainfalls, whenever there's a bit of reprieve (or not, as was the case today), we venture out for those little walks. Our last walk of 2013 took us to Chatelhearault Park, a gem of a park in Hamilton. The Avon water, or on another walk, the White Cart waterfall, all look rather impressive after the heavy rains.

There's tons of other stuff I could mention, but in all the year's hustle and bustle, the most important moments are those spent without the clock in mind, just being and listening, and taking baby steps at the kids' pace.

So here's to 2014 and many more walks, adventures, making, doing, creating, imagining, seeing, feeling, experiencing, exploring and discovering.
