Christmas

So this is Christmas
And what have you done
Another year over…

I think it is important to review your successes at the end of the year. Whether they be big or small, reminding yourself of what you achieved during that year (even if you thought it was a bad one and are happy to see the backside of it), for me at least, makes the fact that it is the years end more meaningful.

So my year in review…

This year I managed to:

  •  work full time,
  • continue earning my Uni degree at night (with really good marks),
  • arrange a wedding to my best friend in the world – light of my life – my Nubby (AKA New Hubby – yes he hates it hahaha),
  • be blessed with my first nephew (and now godson) – beautiful Hendrix,
  • had a beyond fabulous escape to Vanuatu,
  • climbed and stood on the rim of an active Volcano,
  • clambered up and all around the most breathtaking waterfall I could ever imagine,
  • fed an 80 year old sea turtle,
  • held baby turtles,
  • paid off all the credit cards (much to the banks dismay – they keep contacting me offering me a larger limit – NO!!),
  • went tandem aqua zorb balling,
  • got a tan! (I have 2 colours, cracker-white & cherry-red, I have never ever gone brown, thank you Vanuatu!),
  • lose 20 kilos,
  • found out I will be blessed with a niece in early Feb courtesy of my younger brother & his partner and plus, also, my godson Hendrix will score a brother or sister in late June 2012,
  • I continued to have an amazing best-friend-like relationship with my Mum,
  • despite my new hubby’s younger brother’s best efforts to do anything and everything rudely, wrongly and disrespectfully while he invaded us for the majority of the year I did not commit any felonies!,
  • I didn’t lose any friends and as far as I know I didn’t gain any enemies 😀

    Me & Mum

Obviously there is more to my annual report, however the highlights are looking promising and I would have to say that what I have accomplished over the past year really does outweigh the stresses and craziness I sometimes felt! All in all I would have to declare 2011 a success and I believe I am ending the year with my stock up rather high and am therefore entering the New Year with renewed vigour and awesomeness 😀

I have a new job and now work in a Public Library full time as the Reference & Information Services Librarian. It is a full on, busy role with much variety and many challenges and I love it! I have strange sometimes very outside the box ideas that I want to try at work, I just need to convince others of how awesome my ideas are. Saving the Library, one awesome plan at a time. Hmm... I need a cape - all the awesome super heroes have a cape! View all posts by DitchTheBun
