As we close the door on 2010, here's a quick rundown.
I spent 9 out of the 12 months of 2010 pregnant.
It was my best pregnancy to date possibly because Tilly was the smallest of all 3 babies. Pregnancy for me is tiresome and exhausting and I am looking forward to not being pregnant. Again. Ever.
I had a baby.
Nuff said. Big ups to me.
I organised my High School Reunion which was held 2 weeks after Tilly's birth.
Huge achievement. HUGE. I actually forgot to post about my High School's 15 year reunion which I organised which was a huge success. It took a good 2 years to find my old mates. And although I suffered some extreme nervousness the day of the event, it all went very well and we had approximately 55 attendees. We had over 250 in our year. I was thrilled to see that a lot of schoolmates even made the trip from interstate. It really was great to see some old pals especially a close friend of mine who I lost contact with. I actually found about 70% of old school mates but for whatever reason, most decided not to attend. Which is fine. Whatever. Seems a lot have some unresolved High School Issues. Even 15 years later. Whatever.
There were definitely were a few sore heads the next day. The management at the pub had to kick us out in the end as we stayed past closing time. It was a great night. I look forward to the next reunion for our 20th year. Which I am sure will be bigger and better than the last.
I felt a bit special as everyone was so grateful to me for organising the night.
I found a maxi dress that looks good on me
Possibly the biggest achievement of the year surpassing giving birth and organising massive events. And it was ON SALE. Massive accomplishment to find a maxi dress that doesn't make me look like Papa Smurf dressed like a Humpback whale. Big achievement to find a maxi dress that doesn't drag along the ground like some B grade non-white wedding dress. *Smile*.
My little girl started 3+ kindy
Well this was big for me. She only attended some 5 hours a week but it was the first time I had ever left her in the hands of anyone other than relatives. She took the transition so very well. Like everything with my kids I was anticipating BIG DRAMAS but it all ended up being a bit "meh" in the end, as usual I worried about it and she was fine in the kindy and loved it to bits.
I toilet trained Harry in 1 day.
Like I said I anticipate big DRAMAS whenever the kids need transitioning into something. I was expecting this to be the biggest drama yet, possibly because he is a cheeky little monkey. Once again it was a dismal "meh" on the richter scale of Big Headaches. I swear this is some kind of miracle from God. Harry had the toilet down pat pretty much on the 1st day. The following day I kept reminding him to go. Then I forget to tell him to go to the toilet because I am just so busy with a newborn and all. So then he just started pulling down his dacks and doing the bizzo himself. Only 2 or so wee's on the floor and I stepped in no poo because one never made it to the ground.
So much happened this year but I am looking forward to a wonderful 2011.
Here are my resolutions to commence on January 1st which will all turn to shit sometime during the second week of January. Because my resolution last year to use my shipping container load of Clinique on a daily basis suffered a similar fate.
1. No more T-shirts. Somehow I have collected a freakin smorgasboard of bloody t shirts. Tight fitting ones with low necks in all the colours of the bloody rainbow. I am not sure how this happened. No more. I am not wearing these in public anymore. They are daggy and only suitable for bed.
2. More clothes. More shoes. When you take out all the tshirts there is literally nothing left.
3. Get back on the treadmill and try and lose the pregnancy paunch before I hunt down a plastic surgeon to have it cut out.
4. Be a better friend, better sister, daughter, better wife and better mother.
5. Get back to blogging and reconnect with all my lovely bloggers which means rejoining the troops of crazies on Twitter.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
What hopes do you have for 2011?
