2015 – Whats the plan?

Every year since David and I met we have had some life changing event happen every year (and in writing this post I discovered they have all happened around May/June).

We met on 26 June 2009.

June 2010 we moved into our new home together.

June 2011 we had Jack.

May 2012 I had my hip replacement.

May 2013 we got married.

February 2014 we had Emma.


Each year we have had something major to focus on. We have had to organise, plan, welcome, save and prepare for something for the last 5 years.

2015 is the first year that there is nothing major planned. We have our house, we have our babies, we are married and my hips are all still working.

I think David and I are both looking forward to a year where nothing dramatic (or expensive) happens.

We have talked often about what we are actually going to do next year.

Possibly we will spend the year pool side watching Cameron work his way up the rankings.

Or maybe I will finally figure out the dancing make up.

We could even go all tiger parents and enroll Jack into mini soccer.

David could sign all those deals he has been working tirelessly on.

Emma may start playing the piano (she seems set to be an over acheiver).

Maybe I finish writing a book.

Who knows the possibilities are endless.

All I know is while I know small things change our lives as much as big events, I would prefer to not have anything major happen. We need a bit of a chance to catch our breathes and to just be for a bit.

It is sort of exciting to have nothing planned for the 12 months that lie ahead. It means we can focus on each day, rather than one event.

Whats planned for your 2015?

    The only thing we have planned for 2015 is to focus on every day we get and to take as much joy out of each day as we possibly can.

    I would really like to quit smoking in 2015. That’s the biggie, the rest is just to live a happy life!

    Sjoe. You guys have packed a lot into your years! For 2015 I need to actually DO the stuff I keep saying I’m going to do! Like you, I hope for a year of ZERO drama.

    Our biggest thing in the immediate pipeline is Grade R…then in Feb hopefully I qualify…maybe by March I decide to look for a new job…April we’re expecting the arrival of a new nephew…the rest is still pretty much open.

    Still thinking and scheming but BORING is definitely part of the plan, and NO TEARS!
