New Zealand is one of the first countries in the world to see in the new year, so that leaves only a few hours to publish the last post of 2011.  We’ve been away (more about that in later posts) and now it’s time to reflect on the past year and make some resolutions for 2012.

We’ve had a good year and feel very grateful for that.  We’re still working and I successfully completed my Studies in Aging postgraduate certificate program.  Our blog was a finalist in a New Zealand’s Best Bloggers competition.  We didn’t win, but want to thank everyone who voted for us.

2011 has been a shaky year for some in New Zealand. On February 22,  Christchurch, the country’s second largest city experienced yet another devastating earthquake.  As recently as this afternoon, there were more tremors in the Canterbury region and we feel for those who are digging out yet again!  We lived in Christchurch for 6 months in 1998 and have fond memories of our stay there.

On the North Island, we didn’t have major quakes this year, but there was snow as far north as Auckland, tornadoes and flooding, which caused considerable damage.  Hopefully, 2012 will be a more stable year.

Have you made any resolutions for 2012?  We have – lose some weight, become more fit, save money and engage our creative selves. How do we plan to lose weight and accomplish our other goals?  Watch this space!

Let us know what your resolutions and hopes are for 2012 – we’d love to hear from you!

Until next time,
