Today is the last day of 2017.
It’s been a rather eventful year, and one that I can actually say, hasn’t been a bad one. Granted, there have been several ups and downs, but this year has been one of the better ones, over the past few.
A few reflections of 2017…
- Gning started year one in school.
- Donut started nursery.
- I finished working at the DWP – one of the hardest, yet satisfying decisions of my life.
- The hubby started full-time work.
- Donuts’ speech is coming along beautifully.
- Gning passed his “Stage 1” in swimming.
- My depression seems to have stabilised somewhat, and I’m relying less and less on my medication.
- I have restarted the old way of communicating, in “penpalling” (good old fashioned pens, paper, envelopes and stamps).
- I made a new, very dear friend.
When I was younger, I used to always make resolutions for the upcoming new year, however, as more than likely everyone else, they never usually lasted longer than a week or two.
For 2018, however, I have decided on a couple…
- Read more. I would like to read at least one book per calendar month.
- Write more. Not letters, but write more poetry, and short stories – just like I used to “pre-children”.
So, without further ado, I bid thee farewell 2017, and 2018, I welcome you with open arms.
