Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everyone! I wish you all the best for 2013. If you’ve made any resolutions, good luck with them! I hope you achieve all you dream of.

I’ve just been looking back over the archives and found that I didn’t write a blog post this time last year. I do tend to hibernate in the winter months sometimes. However, looking back to 2010, I wrote this post, in which I summed up the year in 24 words. If you’re wondering why 24 words, pop back to my 2010 post to find out about Meg Pickard’s Mayfly project.

So, as I haven’t done this for two years, I’ve decided to give myself 50 words (yes, I gave myself an extra two) to sum up the past two years, and here it is:

Birth. Baby. Joy. Post-natal pre-eclampsia. Loss of identity. Becoming ‘Mummy.’ Love. So much love.  Sleepless nights. Breast, Bottles, nappies…. Returning to work. Returning to ‘me.’ Starting a ‘Mummy’ blog. Watching baby grow into a walking, talking little boy.  Wondering where the time went. Starting a novel. Writing. People. Poetry. Family. 

Wondering about the past two years but can’t  be bothered to trawl through the archives? Here you go…

Wedding. Malaysia. Marriage. Completing a poetry collection. Career shift towards writing and coaching. Morning sickness. Baby bump. Learning to drive (finally). Believing. Doing. Being.

Poetry. Family. Love. Overcoming challenges. Tying up loose ends. Reconnecting with old friends. Getting engaged. Blogging. Starting to believe anything’s possible. Moving towards ‘anything.’

As well as summing up the past two years, I have also been thinking about my future plans. As it’s pretty much more of the same I won’t list them here but I will be emailing myself today via Future me, so that this time next year I can look back at where I am now and see how much I achieved (if anything!). I forgot to do this last year I’ve missed having that comparison.

How about you? How would you sum up your year in 24* words? If you prefer not to look back, then what are your plans for the coming year (if you’re happy to share them)? Please leave a comment below as I’d love to hear from you!

Have a New Year cupcake with me!

*Oh go on then, have 50 if you need ’em 🙂 If you write a whole blog post be sure to post the link back here so that I can have a read!
