This has been probably the most memorable year ever for me. It wont just be remembered for the cancer either. Some positive things can happen from negative experiences. I reckon I have experienced more in this year than any other. I am not going to lie though its been exhausting! Would I do so much again? Maybe not!
Lets start with the positives.
Hubby came home to live for a year.
We had our dream holiday to "San Francisco" (a week before diagnosis as I was expecting the worse)
We started a new business restoring Vintage Caravans
My eldest joined the Army, her dream job
My eldest passed her driving test and bought her own car
I ran my first 10km race
Hubby donated stem cells for "Anthony Nolan"
We had two brilliant short breaks in London
My youngest passed all her GCSE's even with all the crap going on around her
Started to embrace the whole vintage era
Had my first theatre experience
Learnt to sew using a sewing machine
Started my blog and made some fab new friends
Acquired a rather big workshop with tons of potential
I finally booked my first Skiing holiday which is only a few weeks away
I learnt to stop being so uptight, life is too short to worry about everything
Went to my first festival and loved it!
Oh yeah nearly forgot came through the cancer treatment
Not so good things!
Diagnosed with Breast Cancer
Lost one of our dogs
Had two vehicles written of neither of which was our fault
Trying to run a business with a serious illness, not easy!
Do you know what, I can hardly think of anything bad that has happened. Looking at the list there are far more positives and it actually has been quite a fab year. Due to taking a bit of a back seat with work I spent more time with friends and loved it.
If I have learnt anything this year it will be to have more fun, learn something new at every opportunity and not take life so seriously.
I am looking forward to next year and what it will bring.
HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE
