…and it's gone!
Well that was that! All that looking forward to something and quick as a flash it’s over. A friend of mine once said ‘it is better to travel than to arrive’ and sometimes I think she is right, the anticipation, longing, planning and excitement all building to a crescendo only for it to be over so quickly it might never have happened!
For all that it was good fun and I had some lovely presents, including a beautiful sparkly necklace from HP which was a surprise (he’s so clever!) and an amazing dolls’ house, something I’ve always wanted and it had lights and a Christmas tree and everything, it’s very sweet.
New Year was also great fun we decided to do a 1920ish casino night at one of our friends, we had so much chocolate money nobody could have lost and I think one of our friends developed an addiction to poker! Have a look at the piccies.
So what did we do in 2006?
Travel = Spain, Paris and Zakynthos, Newcastle, Wales, Glasgow, Bradford on Avon, London (I’m sure there’s more but can’t think of any)
*House *= months of building work to acheive a fantastic new kitchen, decorated spare room
*Work *= left my old (and happy) job for new, interesting job which I’m just getting to grips with
Life = HP still wonderful, started step classes again (yippee!) and swimming, Tobi is still with us, got a cleaner (yipee again!), my Dad was 60, started a blog…
OK so what’s in store for 2007?
Travel = Exeter, New York (so far in Feb and March respectively)
House = Insulate loft, decorate bedroom, study, stairs and landing and get a carpet (yippee) make a start on the garden
Work = Continue to get to grips with new job there are certainly some challenges for the year ahead which can only improve my future employment potential
Life = HP will still be wonderful, I will continue with the step classes and swimming but will also try to be more active generally, I’m 40 this year but my Grandad will be 95 in February! Hoping to get an allotment, should help with the activity aspect and better vegtables, although that remains to be seen! Will also try to do more archery when the weather gets better.
None of that seems to difficult it’s just a case of sticking to it…
