Another year over...what a blast it has been.
All the usual highs and lows designed to keep one on there toes, with a few major things ticked off the 'I'd like to achieve this year' list.
So it's been a great one.
Next year... I'd like to learn more, make new things and maybe I'll try and eat a few less cakey cakes and bready delights, my kryptonite!
But the focus at present is not about me and my adventures for the year to come, more so about my little girl, who's not so little any more.
Tomorrow, she'll be heading off to new adventures on a fabulous 3 week trip to Vietnam with her Yaya and Grandpa.
Ever since the tickets were booked she has been counting down the days, and we finally closed the lid on the bag yesterday, all packed and ready to go.
What will I do without my little girl,
No catching the train together,
no big sis to read bedtime books for mr.finny,
no-one intermittently posing zany questions, like..if you were trapped on island what book would you make sure to take!
But I know she'll have an amazing adventure with two of the most loving and caring people, who just adore everything that she is,
from her messy hair, unkempt fashion sense and desperate need to have a novel on hand in all situations, to her compassionate nature, her creative genius and her big ol' smile.
I will miss my big 'little girl'...but know we'll make some new year plans together when she gets back home.
