[dropcap]I[/dropcap]n case you hadn’t realised, we are almost at the end of another year. Each year seems to go by at a faster pace as I get older. Perhaps it’s something to do with realising that every moment needs to be cherished – time flies when you’re having fun eh?
What a year it’s been. If you’ve been following me for a while, you’ll know that I love nothing better than reflecting on time past and what better opportunity than at the end of a year?
My ‘One Word’ for this year was ‘Release’ and I’ll probably unpack that at some point over the next few weeks but for now, this has been my year in numbers:
Miles driven during our two week summer holiday in France and Italy.
£££ spent on emergency vet care.
Readers of my most viewed blog post in 2017.
£££ spent on my hair – “because I’m worth it” ?
Odd socks accumulated.
Days to complete our garden room (I promise to finally share our
little huge project on here in the new year).
Likes my most popular Tweet received.
Years of marriage celebrated.
Months of Invisalign braces endured – still 2 to go.
Books read (Present over Perfect was probably my favourite).
Approximate number of times I cried (probably no coincidence that this works out as once a month). I never cry so this is a huge accomplishment for me!
Books started but not finished #fail.
Pairs of shoes bought (not including flip flops ?).
Trips to the cinema (needs rectifying in 2018). Baby Driver was probably my favourite film watched.
New pet acquired.
And of course…countless cups of coffee drunk!
Whilst there have been the inevitable ‘downs’ in 2017, that no one is exempt from, it’s good to cherish the ‘ups’. Thank you 2017, we have much to be grateful for.
