I thought I might start off by doing one of those questionnaires. You know the one where it asks what you thought of the previous year.
I have done this one a couple of times now (here and here and here) and decided that it is just too long. So I've cut it down to just 18 questions this year:
1. What are your New Year’s Resolutions?
I guess the usual. I want to be more organised, de-clutter, be creative every day, learn to use my camera more fully, continue taking a photo a day, lose some weight, sleep more, get on top of the ironing pile (as in do the ironing and not just climb on top of it!), try to remember birthdays and be a better friend. My one little word will be covered in another blog post.
2. Did anyone close to you give birth in 2010?
No, but my brother-in-law did become a Daddy though for the first time, through adoption which is wonderful for the whole family.
3. Did anyone close to you die?
A very elderly member of our extended family passed away in February, which was very sad. We are very blessed to have all our parents and three grandparents around and in good health.
4. What countries did you visit?
5. What was your biggest achievement of the year?
I completed three months of LOAD (layout a day) and I have a wonderful pile of layouts to prove it.
One of my photos was chosen as a highlighted entry by The Pioneer Woman in one of her photo challenges.
6. What was the best thing someone bought you?
I was whisked away to the tower suite of our favourite local hotel here in Recklinghausen to be treated to 24 hours of pure romance and relaxation. Rose petals were scattered all over the rooms and two large bouquets and a bottle of champagne were waiting. Who could ask for more?
11 What was the best book you read?
The Help by Kathryn Stockett
12 What did you do on your birthday?
14 What was your favourite film of the year?
Twilight – Eclipse. This was one of only three movies I saw at the cinema last year but hands down, Jacob still does it for me every time.
I am well and truly Gleek’d! ‘Nuff said!
Tomorrow will be part two of my multi-layout post and then on Wednesday, I'll put together some more reminiscing...
