Good morning everyone! How's your 2013 going so far? Headache resolved? Resolutions made? Boxing day sales assaulted?
I've had a cruisey few weeks - well, in the sense I've been house-bound, with a chest infection and spent a bit of self-imposed quarantine time on the couch. Sad face. I have had time to do a bit of online shopping - especially in REread's shop. I've stocked up on some very funny cards for the year ahead. I also went to the Goldie to see in the new year in true Jane Austen style, for some healing sea air.
It's been a few years since I've kicked off the blog with a 'year-in-review-in-pictures'. Last time I had to do some fast-footed editing with a prologue to the post. This year we've been spared natural disasters - things might have gone a little bit differently if the Mayan calendar/oreo cookie predictions were correct!
So, last year...
I had a haircut,
walked home from work more,
did a bit more sport,
lured participants to do research at work,
went on some walks with friends,
and celebrated other friends' birthdays,
had a few trips to Melbourne,
and to Tasmania, where we saw some old bridges, buildings, beaches and rocks, as well as some old and new art.
I also marvelled at the inventiveness of boat-namers.
I saw some pretty lights in Brisbane,
and found a new favourite website.
I did some BrisStyle markets,
and needed some slave labour assistance in the lead up to some of them.
The end of the year involved lunching with ladies,
and drinking with old friends....
