Happy New Year to all my readers. I hope you all survived the holiday hustle and bustle and are now able to relax and get back into your daily routines.
The twins are still off school this week for their "winter break" and we've been busy organizing the playroom and taking down our Christmas decorations.
However, 2012 hasn't begun all that well for us. You see we usually participate in a New Year's Day brunch with some of Mr. Twingle's friends. This year, we were trekking to Bradford for the day. I got up with the kids, gave them a light breakfast, prepped the brunch menu items we were to bring, got everyone dressed and ready to go while Mr. Twingle caught a few more Z's. Once he was up and moving we loaded into the van to begin our trip, only the van had other plans. At first glance, everything seemed fine. The radio and dash board lights turned on; but, when I turned the key...nothing. Well, okay the horn honked, which is probably the weirdest part about it.
Sadly, we were not to make our annual brunch date, and we're STILL trying to get the van into a garage to find out what's wrong with it and get it repaired.
I'm hoping against all hope, that this problem with the van isn't an indication to how the rest of 2012 will fair.
Wishing you all health and happiness in 2012.
