2012 Review

Lovecat posted this list of questions which she'd pinched from Fat Girl Fighting so I thought I'd get in on the act:

1. What was your greatest personal accomplishment in 2012?
Hmmmm, tricky.  I think it's the improvement in my golf.  I've cut my handicap from 19 to 16 and won a few comps and also got better at playing unfamiliar courses or matchplay events. Most pleasing.

2. What’s the best thing your did for your health?
I dropped 15 lbs very slowly and got back to running again.  I seem to have discovered moderation.  Not bad at "only" 43!

3. Share one thing that caused a significant change in your life this year.
My dad getting broadband and a carer to help with my mum.  It has freed him from worry for a while and allows me to work from my parents' home so that I can visit more often without having to go at weekends or use leave.

4. List a few things that you experienced for the first time at some point over the last twelve months
The Pembrokeshire coastal path, wonderful.
Incessant rain - I can't ever remember so much of it.
My mum not knowing who I am.
The Olympics being in the UK.

5. What was the coolest place you visited?
The Olympic Stadium definitely.  We were there for the evening session of Super Saturday.  We were sitting just behind the longjump pit and saw 3, count them, 3 awesome Team GB Gold Medals - Go Jess, Mo and Greg!!

6. If you could change one thing about the last year what would it be?
I would have sold my old house.  It is the last tie to my ex husband and I really want to be totally free of him and move on.

7. What is the best meal you ate this year?
A curry in a restaurant in Hillsborough called Darbaars.  It was my birthday and it was lovely.

8. Tell us about a new friend you made.
Caroline - we're email diet buddies and she has really helped me stick to my plan.  I really look forward to her emails most days.

9. What did you hope to accomplish this year that you did not?
Well, there's the house sale. 

10. Share something you learned in 2012. 
I learned to play dominoes - 5's and 3's for our local pub team.

11. Share an odd and unexpected thing that you experienced this year.
Fancy dress golfing.
Drinking 'til dawn in our local after the golf club dinner.

12. How do you think 2013 will differ from 2012?
We will almost certainly be moving house.  Our landlord is trying to sell this house.

So - how about you lot??

My list is all about the things I'd change so I'll not go on about them.

Re your comment - you've made me feel very old... you weren't even born when I first went out with my husband. Gah.

Happy Christmas!
