Happy New Year! Now, Back To Me…

Well here we are, 2012. While some glass half-emptiers are preoccupied with the whole Mayan calendar business, I’ve opted to take advantage of the opportunity to take my life in a whole new direction. I won’t inspire you with the details right now but so far, things are going well (things are quite busy at the moment but my blogging schedule will resume ASAP!). I have a strong sense that 2012 is the start of a whole new, lifelong period of positivity for this little dragon and what better way to begin than by sharing more with others?

Recently I’ve had the pleasure of being invited to be a guest over in Canada – an invitation I will never turn down. Unfortunately (at this stage) it isn’t a physical visit, but it’s pretty much as good as it gets. The Edmonton Tourist and I have shared plenty of stories about our respective climates and because we both love Christmas, she asked me to fill her in on how we do things here in the future Australia when the festive season rolls around.

If my 12 Days of Christmas series was too long for you, please follow this link to the abridged version, a post-Christmas Christmas review post; hosted over at ET’s blog!

      Thanks Clay; I’m looking forward to 2012 being the beginning of a whole new deal for me. I’m getting a very positive feeling about things for everyone, I hope your year has gotten off to a great start.

    The invite stands for you to make an ACTUAL trip here in the winter(foolish) or in June when the sun doesnt set. Either way, I’ll show you some amazing Canadian hot spots! Thanks for writing such a terrific post!

      Thanks for asking me to be your guest ET! And I’ll keep your offer in mind, I’ve forever wanted to visit Canada. While it may not happen this year, it will be very soon – hopefully next year at the latest depending on how the year progresses.

      I look forward to seeing the sights, we’ll have to give Leanne a call as well!

        I heard Canada is a beautiful place to vist, from the Great Lakes to the mounties(?) But… I heard that immigration loves to know your family tree from your grandparents down to your in-laws. Do check it out least you be stopped at immigration and turned around for not being able to prove that not just you , but your extended family is decent…..

        (no offense everyone – but I know someone who had a bad experience)
