Slowly, I am pulled from sleep, into disorienting half-consciousness. The children are still sleeping, the last light eking from the glowsticks hung from the ends of bed, and I look around, trying to work out what disturbed me, when I hear it again. Several low thuds in quick succession, before a nearby dog barks. More thuds. A quick check of my phone & I realise 2015 is upon us.
A new year, fresh & open before us, waiting for us to write our stories on it. A new year full of moments to cherish & memories to make. Welcome to my 2015.
