Happy New Year!

It’s the end of another year already. 2010 seems to have just flown by, and yet so much has happened!

If you have been reading my blog since I started (if you have, do let me know – I’d be impressed and extremely flattered!), you may remember my post ‘End of the Noughties from December 2009. In it I mentioned that instead of writing a long post about the past year, I had been over to Meg Pickard’s blog and taken part in her post about the Mayfly project.

Every year from 2000 to 2009 Meg asked her readers to look back over the previous year, and then sum it up. In 24 words. I looked for Meg’s Mayfly project this year but couldn’t find it (if anyone else has come across it, please let me know so that I can post over there again!) but I loved the idea of summing up the year in 24 words so here goes:

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

As I said, so much has happened for me this year! If you are interested in reading my poetry collection, I will be offering this as a free download from my blog next week so look out for it.

So – How was 2010 for you..? If you think you can sum it up in 24 words, do give it a go! If you find that word count a bit restrictive (it is a good way to focus on what was most important for you but it’s not easy!), please feel free to comment below in as many of as few words as you’d like to use.

Finally, whatever you are doing tonight, I hope that your 2011 is everything you hope for!
