  • At work my secondment was renewed for another year
  • I bought my first cashmere jumper (& I love it)
  • I lost weight
  • I found spinning to be quite enjoyable (& go weekly)
  • I had a really productive allotment year
  • I really loved being pregnant & feeling excited about being a new mum.
  • I baked quite a few decent cakes for family and for cake club
  • I'm proud of my mum who's lost over 3 stone this year - she's amazing!
  • I had a lovely relaxing weekend at my friends in Cirencester
  • I finally started some craft projects (embroidery) and finished them!
  • I made mask that looked like a fox (for a party) and I was pleased with my efforts
  • I have been in good health (so have my nearest & dearest)
  • My mum & dad came to visit me (my dad's not visited me for ages)

  • I saw my friend & sister in laws 1yr olds learn to walk and talk
  • I visited Edinburgh for my birthday and had a fantastic time
  • I'm so lucky to have such wonderful, kind, loving and thoughtful people in my life; my husband, my family, friends (near and far), colleagues, friends-of-friends, people on twitter I've never met and NHS staff.
And despite you know what, I still feel I enjoyed 2013.
So I'm giving 2013 a 7 out of 10
