Wow – New Years Eve. I feel as though it’s come around too quickly. This is only going to be a small reflective post. I mean – you guys have been through most of it with me.
I cried my final tears for S yesterday. No more for 2011 I told myself. Not promising but hoping.
It wasn’t a bad year. January saw me start a new job and February saw the first of my business trips with a stint in Basel. It also saw the eldest of my baby cousins start his travelling. 10 months later, he’s now in Australia and I miss him immensely but with Skype, his blog, Twitter, Facebook, his random texts and a trip to Oz hopefully planned for Summer 2011, I know that he’s doing ok. March saw me turn another year older and not so wiser. Betty decided that her time was coming and I was distraught!
April saw me dating (which clearly didn’t work out!) and May saw another business trip in Dublin. How excited was I?! Only to not see any of Dublin (I barely saw my hotel room) working 17 hour days! But making myself indispensable at work will hopefully have have good things in store for 2011! June saw a lot of redecorating at home, some hen dos and bridesmaid outfit fittings.
July saw a whole load of weddings. In fact, that is the only thing July really saw. Ooooh and Jay Z at Wireless (plus a whole heap of other celebs!)! Ooooh and the purchase of Hector (my new car!). And then we reach August. August was a shitty month (11 posts in one month can testify to that!). Having my heart broken once and for all proved a lil’ too much for me. My emotions ran wild and I was a wreck. Never had I depended on my siblings or my friends as much as I did then. Hindsight is a great thing and looking back I have a few unanswered questions – to myself but I’ll deal with those as and when. September saw a continuation of August. Let’s be fair – having someone in your life for 10 years and then leave will take a while to come to terms with right?
The last three months saw me fly a lot! October saw me take a trip to Frankfurt which tested my patience with family! November saw me in Athens which tested my patience with friends(!) and December saw a trip to Budapest with a new friend (all of which need photos I know!).
And here we are. I can only go into this new year optimistic. So my friends are hooking up and falling by the wayside but that doesn’t mean it’s my time. And I don’t have to live by anybody else’s time lines. New Year resolutions will be made (and most likely broken!) but my heart will be on my sleeve just as it always has been. If I get hurt – then hopefully I’ll learn from it.
To all of you that read this blog. It’ll be 3 years old in January. What I started out as a lil’ bit of fun because I was bored at work has become such a part of my life. In turn as have you those that read and comment. For all your kind words during the year – my words can do you no justice but thank you.
Happy New Year to all. I hope that 2011 is filled with much happiness, laughter, good times, good fortune and love.
