It feels like only yesterday that we were introduced. It took me almost a whole month to stop referring to you as 2012 but we soon slotted into a rhythm that at times was way too fast for my liking. You were certainly keen to keep me on my toes, one minute it was Easter and then we were breaking up for the Summer.
Talking of Summer, that was an interesting one. There I was all prepared for a solo 6 weeks while the Mr worked away, and then you threw a curve ball and instead had the Mr at home all summer recuperating from a dodgy leg. Our original holiday was cancelled but you blessed us with a much needed late break to Scotland which rekindled my faith in you.
I cannot believe how fast you moved, because if it wasn't for the 365project and the photographs that prove they existed, I'd swear you completely skipped most of September and October. November started with climbing walls for the Big One's birthday but I blinked and then I was eating turkey and pulling a cracker. I feel like we didn't really get to know each other properly, you sped past in such haste, but looking back over the last 10 days I'd say we had fun.

Tomorrow you'll be gone. I won't miss you for long, sorry, because I'll have 2014 to get to know in your place. Rumour has it that it's going to bring a whole new era, by taking away my preschooler and giving me 3 school age children. I may have to spend the first 9 months of 2014 working out what the last 3 months will entail. Best not wish those months away though, they are precious, so I'll capture each day in just the same way as the last 731 days with a snapshot to remind me.
It was fun while you lasted.
