2012: The Year that Was

As 2012 draws to a close it is very tempting to do a bit of reflection on the year that was. So please excuse me while I indulge in some trips down memory lane...

This year I:

And in between I also:
  • Had some very fun times at work with the gang;
  • Danced like a teenager in a friend's loungeroom into the early hours, during a weekend escape to the beach;
  • said goodbye to Glenholme;
  • Saw the Shins do a fantastic gig at Festival Hall;
  • Went to a couple of amazing music festivals (harvest and laneway) with the wonderful Jaz;

In 2012 I managed to visit some amazing places and do some amazing things:
  • I started the year in Cambodia with my work friends doing some volunteering in a village;
  • Went to Perth for a weekend for Em and Steve's beautiful wedding;
  • Did a couple of sections of the Great Ocean Walk near Point Otway;
  • Had a great time visiting friends in Adelaide;
  • Went on a couple of little day trips - to Clunes (for a book fair) and to Steiglitz (a ghost town).

All in all 2012 had some sad times, some changes, but lots of really great highlights too.

So... who knows what 2013 will hold? Lots more fun times, I hope. And some more blogging. Thank- you to everyone for all the blog love. Thank-you for tuning in and for leaving comments, emailing and supporting.

Happy New Year Everyone! 

xx Helen


  1. Helen! What a fulfilling year you've had - I've enjoyed sharing some of the adventures with you and watching from the sidelines for the rest. Can't wait to see what 2013 will bring. Lots of love my friend x

    1. Thanks Joh... it was fun sharing adventures with you. I hope there are many more in 2013. Best wishes for a wonderful New Year. xx

  2. Helen, it's been quite hectic for you, but I've enjoyed your blog so much that it's become a valid part of my week. I have some Xmas stamps for you and will send them in the New Year after I move house. I hope your 2013 is just as jam packed as 2012 was. Enjoy!

    1. Sandra, thanks for the lovely words. Am so pleased that you are still loyally tuning into my blog - it is so nice that we now keep in touch through the blogosphere! Good luck with moving house. All the very best for 2013. :)

  3. Happy New Year Helen! I think that's a great list of memories from 2012. I hope you have equally awesome (if not better) memories for 2013!
