I've been tagged by my writer buddy Jamie Dougan and been asked to share the highlights of my year. You can read Jamie's blog here.
Here goes ...
2014, the year that ...
* I realised that I can live independently and survive without my husband. But I didn't like it one bit!
* I hit 50 and survived!
* I got an eternity ring after 20 happy years of marriage.
* I felt I could truly call myself an author as sales began to hit figures I'd only ever dreamed of.
* I saw my son turn in to a fine young man, holding down a job he loves and heading off to gigs that strike the fear of God into me!
* My Canadian cousin and her husband visited and we had a blast. I'm hoping 2015 sees them heading this way again.
* I started a 'tin of good things' and every time we had a stroke of luck or something nice happened we scribbled it on a piece of paper and popped it in. It's quite full now and we're looking forward to opening it on New Year's day and reflecting on our good fortune rather than focusing on the negatives.
So, there you go. My year and its best bits.
Here's to 2015 and whatever it may bring.
