Time keeps on slipping into the future

Yes it does.

Happy Christmas and Happy New Year Bloggy friends. Every other year I've posted either Christmas or New Years messages in a timely fashion, but not this year. I didn't make pointless wishes at Christmas this year and New Years was quiet.

I know that 2011 has been a crap year for a lot of people, but it was good to me - despite not getting miraculously knocked up. I achieved some intense goals and have been kindly rewarded. It's the first year since 2008 that I haven't experienced the crushing pain of failed assisted reproduction attempts throughout the year. In 2011, I wished and hoped but with no faith in my preferred outcome so when the inevitable blood began each cycle, I wasn't dragged down and out with the flow. Last year I focused on a baby-free future and that cushioned me against its loss. Last year I let go. I'm free falling.

This January we went on summer holiday up north to the sun and the sea and had a lovely time. Feast your eyes my lovelies.

  1. I hope 2012 is even better for you than 2011. Your pictures are beautiful! Makes me want to head to the beach!

  2. Happy New Year, my dear friend. Congratulations on all that you have accomplished in 2011 - academically and personally. You are a rockstar! Hugs and kisses!
    Can't wait for the next update about the chickehs!

  3. Rainbow Beach was where I fell in love with Bingley. I'm glad it was a good year to you, Pundy. I hope 2012 is even more superlative.

  4. Gorgeous shots. I want that beach very badly. I've been missing your updates and thinking of you off having fun.

  5. so glad you are doing well, it is comforting to see someone making out alive on the other side. wishing you well always.

  6. My eyes are feasting! I'm so glad 2011 was a good year, and am so impressed with your academic rock- star status.

  7. Happy New Year, Pundy. I love the photos (which are warming me in currently freezing New York). I'm glad 2011 was better (though, I'd have liked the other for you, too). Free falling is much better than just falling and falling.

  8. Happy New Year, my scholarly friend! Ah, don't you just love the north.

    Am hoping 2012 brings you many wonderful things.
