My year that was 2013.

It was just another ordinary year, 2013, pretty much like any other in my life. It has had its highs and its lows. But I do not believe when I wake up tomorrow morning I will feel any different, I will not look any different, .and I dont suppose for one minute this horrible irritating cough will have gone.  I wont be any richer or any poorer, I don't have any inclination to celebrate a new year, and I plan on being tucked up in my bed before the bells ring at midnight same as I am any other night of the week. 


So what has been happening this year? Well its nice to see the three girls happy and settled. Daughter No1 got engaged earlier in the year, No2 got herself a new job in a new area with an new man and got herself engaged as well last week. and Daughter No3 has just celebrated her first anniversary with her boyfriend. It  is nice to see them all settled and happy, after all that is all any of us parents wish for our children. 

Sadly its been a bad year for Son No1 and due to circumstances beyond his control he could not be with us for Christmas. Another seat at the table so to speak was also empty as another year has passed without seeing or hearing from Son No2. We know he is getting on ok as we speak to his girlfriends parents when ever we bump into them. Happy new year to each and every one of the children and their partners. May 2014 be even happier than 2013 was. 

Have had rather a rough time health wise with OH, but he is adapting to the necessary changes and taking his medication voluntarily, so here is hoping he keeps improving. 

Of course on top of that Daughter No1 has blessed us with not one baby but two, she always liked a bargain. 

My life is still pretty much the same, work, blog, comp, and enjoy my family. We enjoyed a holiday this year that we won. I am quite proud that I have just completed my second Project 365 and its lovely to look back on the changes in the grandchildren. We moved house over the summer, and with us being just around the corner now from the grandchildren is a huge help to my daughter. It is also nice to be able to see the little changes in the twins as the other two lived two hours away when thy were small so we only ever saw them three or four times a year. 

I don't do new years resolutions,and I don't do sentimentality but I would like to raise a glass to everybody that has read my blog and supported me through the year. Thank you for being there. 

All the best for 2014 to each and every one of you. Cheers!!
