Angela from The Life of Spicers tagged me in this end of the year meme. It originated at Kate on Thin Ice‘s blog. It is always good to look back when a year ends and remember things that have happened while looking forward to the future. This is my look back at last year and while I am here I want to wish you all a wonderful and happy 2013.
1. What was your happiest event?
It was probably our summer holidays at Knockbrex castle. The whole extended family got together for a week to celebrate landmark birthdays for my mum and dad. It was really nice just to spend time together.
2. What was the saddest thing to happen?
I have had a pretty happy year but I would say my son starting secondary school as it means he is no longer a baby. It is good as well though as it shows he is growing up.
3. What was the most unlikely thing to happen that actually went ahead and did?
This is is difficult one, I can’t think of anything.
4. Who let you down?
I have been pretty lucky, no one really let me down this year.
5. Who supported you?
My family are always there for me.
6. Tell us one thing you learned
I learned to have more confidence in myself and that I can do things if I put my mind to it. I also learned I have some very nice friends out there.
7. Tell us one thing that made you laugh
My son frequently makes me laugh with his antics, he is a bit of a clown and always has some new thing to make me smile.
8. Tell us one thing that made you cry
Lots of silly little things but nothing that was really important.
9. Tell us three things your child or children did to make you feel proud.
My son starting secondary school and settling in well and working hard. He also spoke lines in the school carol concert and started to do extra maths work after school as he was doing so well.
10. Tell us one thing that made you proud of yourself.
Realising people actually read my blog , thank you all.
11. Tell us one challenge you overcame
I managed to run two miles without stopping, quite an achievement considering I only took up running recently. I have stopped running recently due to the mud and weather but want to start again and to go even further.
12. Tell us three things you would like to change about your life in 2013.
I would like to decorate my house as its getting rather shabby. I have done a couple of rooms but the rest really needs doing. I want to do more exercise and get outside more with my son and dog. I also want to concentrate more on this blog and find more opportunities to write.
