Yes, another year has passed and I am having a look back over the last (couple) of years and how much everything has changed. Apart from turning 30 (very) soon this year, there have been some big changes in my life including the birth of my lovely daughter Fluff (Fleur) and Jasper becoming even more intelligent and wonderful every day. I also learnt that twitter has changed. With an influx of complete morons unfortunately, that like to ruin lives and cause chaos. I have taken some time out, re-evaluated who I am ‘connected’ with and banned those I actually don’t want near me (in twitter land!).
I have also changed jobs – after a hellish year involving a lot of problems and battles, I am now working somewhere I really enjoy and hope to make a big difference at. I can lead teams, use my initiative and be appreciated (at last!).
I have been married 5 years this year – yes 5! I cannot quite believe how I havent killed him yet and buried him in the garden, but I would also be lonely without him!
I have been a home owner for a whole year! A whole year of being a ‘proper’ grown up, changing the look, feel and overall home has made it ‘ours’ and I know my whole little family love our home and garden.
I am turning 30…this means that when my mother said ‘you will never make it to 21 if you keep drinking like that,‘ was of course a complete lie (sorry mum!) However, I do fear that I may have pickled my liver!
My best friend got engaged (HUGE cheer here!) I am sure she won’t mind me saying that after a string of god awful boyfriends and crappy dates she found an amazing man, who is wonderful and loves her to pieces. I am excited, happy beyond belief and emotional. Emotional that she has found someone who loves her to pieces as much as I do (I do actually love her more but we will let that just sit for the moment).
So much has happened, and so much has changed. I feel older, wiser and more ‘together’ than I have for many years. I cannot wait for the coming year and the changes and happiness (okay and tears probably) that it will bring. I guess it is true what they say ‘As one door closes, another opens‘ and that ‘Life is what you make it, so smile every day, love every minute and relish every second.’
