This year for the first time in many – I didn’t have a gig.
My beloved and the kids are in Sydney, out on the harbour enjoying the massiveness of Sydney’s NYE celebrations. I stayed at home…alone…with my music and knitting for company and this morning when I woke, with no hangover (from either alcohol, or exhaustion), I feel ready to welcome in the new decade with all its promises of great things.
It’s no secret that 2009 was a less than fabulous year for me, my family and loads of my friends, but there is so much on the agenda for 2010 already that I can’t help but be excited.
I bit the bullet at the end of 2009 and started work on my album. A huge step, and you can read about it over here…
My work is busy and challenging, but for all those challenges I am still learning and enjoying it!
Craftwise – I’ve not stitched much at all but I’ve been knitting up a storm!
Not that I’ve been slacking off at all, I’ve written a ton of new songs, started guitar lessons to help me with the process, revising all the ‘useless music theory’ that I gave away in high school and trying to keep on top of the mothering, housework, etc.
While I wouldn’t say 2009 has been one of my most stellar years, the happenings of 2009 have catapulted me into action for the new decade!
Much love and best wishes to everyone from me.
