A great bonus of keeping the blog is the ability to look back quite easily at the happenings over the year. With the addition of pictures my journal is a colourful history of our life. Not that it is riveting reading for anyone else but me, but today I had fun reviewing the year.
Here are some highlights...
January saw us holidaying in Port Fairy and then later celebrating our 25th wedding anniversay
February was when Erin commenced secondary school and Chris quietly celebrated turning 50
In March Bacchus Marsh was flooded with what was the beginning of much rain, so much so I stopped counting the mls
In April our family got together for a picnic
In May I got glasses
June saw Erin become a teenager
In July we met up with Chris' cousins whilst on their trip to Australia from Manchester, UK
In August we saw both Hayley and Erin perform in Oliver!
We also got to vote in a new Prime Minister
September saw Collingwood play in the Grandfinal and win it in a replay match (20 years between flags)
I held my first big study day, then went on Long Service Leave to get over it.
October saw us celebrate both my birthday and Yvonne's 40th. in NSW. Erin got to go on her first plane trip and we had a lovely holiday in Terrigal.
November saw Callum get his motorcycle licence and a new motorbike.
Hayley started her new career in the Dentistry field.
In December we saw the Hoodoo Gurus live, celebrated Christmas with family and took a breather at the end of the year.
In reflection I have also read quite a few books, seen a few movies and it looks like I've done loads of scrapping, cooking, shopping and TV watching. I've also dabbled with yoga with surprising results.
These are the highlights, we've had a few lowlights too but it all balances out in the end. I believe you need to have a positive attitude even if things aren't going well.
So here's to the new year and the beginning of a new decade...
Have a good one!
