Goodbye 2011

Last year I made some New Years Resolutions & I think I did my best to keep most of them. I am especially proud of my last entry where I promised to add to my yarn stash. I managed to do that one so well. In fact I think I might promise to do that one in 2012 as well =D

I don't know about making any new resolutions for next year. Apart from this one - that I will endeavour to keep - I will do my best to keep my Diabetes under control. I know I am doing okay with that so far so I'll just keep plodding along and see what happens. Before I forget I need to tell you that I have now lost 18kg, that's around 39.6 pounds. It's been slow going but at least I haven't put any weight back on. Maintaining my weight was one of my goals.

So much has happened to my family over the past year. Lots of highs and lows. Here are the ones that stand out the most (to me at least).
  • Brodie successfully graduated from High School. A HUGE achievement that makes me feel so happy & very proud of what's he has accomplished. 
  • I became a great-auntie again when Moya-May was born (she's 2 months old already)
  • Mark got his ham radio license
  • Angus got accepted into TAFE next year for Automotives
  • I got diagnosed with diabetes
  • I learnt how to do Tunisian crochet
  • Brodie got his scooter (he just needs to get his license)
  • Mark & I celebrated 5 years of togetherness last January

I wonder what 2012 will bring ...

    The new year is such a mystery, and that is a good thing. I hope that yours brings you happiness, peace, and challenges to make you grow.
