I can't quite believe we are about to welcome a whole new year already, can you?! It seems the older I get the faster the years whizz by. We've had a lovely Festive Season so far, despite my car breaking down on the way back from our Christmas holiday. We were just 40 minutes from home, tired and hot (and baby O had slept all of 20 minutes all day), when my car decided it had had enough and it came to stop at the side of the road.
On the upside though the whole experience left us in awe of the kindess of our friends, acquaintances and strangers who came to our rescue, including the police (who get lots of bad publicity in South Africa) who just happened to be passing and waited with us until the tow truck arrived. (Not the safest spot on the world for my car to have broken down - I won't lie, I panicked a bit - so extremely grateful for the police presence.)
Do any of you have exciting plans for tonight? We're just taking it easy and staying in with kids, and tomorrow we'll welcome 2014 with a barbecue with some family. Next year when The Baby is a bit older we'll venture out and do something exciting! On that note I hope you all have a happy, safe and fabulous 2014! :-)
