Happy New Year to one and all. I hope that you ushered 2015 in safe and sound.
But before we get stuck into the new one, lets reflect a little on the old year past. And what a year of ups and downs it has been. There have been two very important life changing events in 2014 for us.
We lost Kim’s mum Pam, which really took its toll. However she is always in our hearts, and we know that life has to go on. That is what Pam would have wanted of course.
On the other hand, Kim and I are now proud grandparents, which makes us very happy. Emily Webber is now with us, daughter to Adam and Sina. Although they are living in Germany, we know that they only as close as a Skype call away. Isn’t technology wonderful at times?
Now, Kim and I will be doing a deep dive into last years events during our podcast later on today, but suffice it to say that we are looking forward to what this year brings.
Looking at the year ahead, I think more and more people will begin to realise that everything old will be new again. By that I mean that older ways of doing things will become popular again. We are certainly seeing a resurgence in all the things that we teach in our workshops. It seems that folks want to learn how to make their own things, which is very encouraging.
It is great to see others moving away from being consumers and moving towards becoming producers and claiming back a little more self-reliance.
So here is to 2015 and what it may bring. May it bring joy and happiness to you all.
