December 2014 Recap

The year has ended. Before I post some musings on the year, let’s recap the final month.

  • Family time with just the three of us
  • Christmas with the fam back home via Skype
  • A few Saturdays worth of work at the shop
  • A SUP lesson
  • Christmas cookies and movies and getting the tree up
  • Family arrival and tree decorating
  • Bebe started to crawl and pull himself up
  • Two teeth (one before and one after Christmas)
  • Christmas with the fam and lots of guests for dinner
  • Quiet NYE at home

That’s it. Not too exciting, but my month nonetheless…

February 2014 Recap

Let’s try this in bullets…

  • Found a brunch place in Kingston that’s open on Sundays. You have no idea how wonderful that is unless you regularly work Saturdays and love brunch and live in a town where shops and/or restaurants often do not open on Sundays.
  • Started the Athleta 30-Day Squat Challenge and completed the first two weeks. A road-trip derailed my progress and other forces prevented me from starting it up again…
  • Made a new friend, who happens to be a neighbor, and attended the Canberra Multicultural Festival with her.
  • Road trip! Canberra to Melbourne to Portland (via the Great Ocean Road) to Canberra in three days (around 1300 miles all together). A long time in the car, but definitely worth it.
  • Work and SUP lessons, which I so dearly love teaching
  • Went to my first UC Brumbies match and reminded myself of how much I enjoy watching rugby even though I lost my desire to play it years and years ago
  • Found another place (and one that’s within walking distance of our house) that’s open for Sunday brunch. SCORE!
  • Got plugged back into the L&D community online via the #OzLearn and #Lrnchat Twitter chats and started developing (online) relationships so that part of my skill set doesn’t atrophy
