Top Posts: 2012

I am grateful for all of you who visit and comment on this blog. As a form of creative expression, connecting with an online community and keeping family members updated - this really is a very rewarding place to be. And as this is the end of 2012, it is only fitting that I post about my most popular posts this year. It's always interesting to see what my readers enjoy the most.

Most popular posts for 2012

So there you have it, a real mish-mash group of topics.
My conclusion: that there are numerous wannabee Chinese speakers who are dreaming of being a rock star and believe the freedom of homeschooling without stress will allow them to tour the world, while writing about their experiences of tasting escargot. climbing Table Mountain and dreaming big.

A word for 2013

It definitely seems to be that naming the year is the thing to do and I like to do the things that everyone else is doing otherwise I feel like I am not doing what everyone else is doing and I feel left out. And so after much thought and weighing up who we are as a family, my children and their personalities, our history and our future (who would have thought that all of this plays a role in selecting a single word), we have decided our word for 2013 will be:
I love this word! I love the unknown. I want to go to places few people would go, suitcases are the best accessories for this. It implies courage, history making, pioneering, travel and trying things for the first time. So this will be a new season of excitement and I am excited to see what this year has in store for me.

Have you named your year yet? Leave a comment and tell me what you have decided on and if you feel up to it, tell me why.
