Hopes & Goals For 2015 - Revisited

It's coming to the end of another year once again and while i'm suffering with an apocolyptic hangover and the worlds worst indigestion, it's the right time to look back over the past year and see if i have achieved any of my hopes and goals for 2015.

Get a new job

Thankfully, this is one that i can most certainly tick off the list. I got myself out of the most manotanous, unsociable and impractical job known to man and it was such a relief. I'm now working from home and i won't lie, it's the best thing ever.

Fall Pregnant

Unfortunately, this is still yet to happen. I won't go too much into it but i think it's got to the stage where we are just going to wait and see and hope for the best instead of planning it. It's been a real rollercoaster of a year for me and Carl and we have gone through quite a difficult stage with regards to the subject but we are hopeful that we won't have to wait too much longer. Keep your fingers crossed for us everyone.

Improve my health 

 I actually lost weight this year which i'm really chuffed about. After only trying for over 2 months, i have lost over 1.5 stone which is a real achievement. Carl has also lost weight aswell and i'm so proud of both of us. I'm still smoking which i'm not proud of but as any smoker will understand, when life is stressing you out, trying to give something up is not a good idea.

Learn to calm down

This has been half completed. I've had one of the most stressful years of my life on every level and it's been increasingly difficult to just have a breather and relax. But i have learnt that when i'm on the war path, it's a better idea to walk away and calm down rather than to kick off.

Organise my life better

Again this is half accomplished. I have been writing everything down in my diary and doing everything possible to make sure that all of us are organised and not running around like headless chickens. My only downfall was trying to get Carl to wrap my Christmas present (which as a matter of fact was the last bloody thing that needed wrapping) and he didn't do it until last thing Christmas eve which really wound me up. Ugh men.

Catch up with old friends
I won't beat around the bush, i haven't caught up with any of my old mates at all this year.My best mate Michelle has been living in Cork for the past 18 months while her husband (who is a site foreman) has been running the build of a new hospital. She was due to come back in October but decided to spend Christmas out there and is now thinking of living there permanently. And i was due to catch up with my school mate Gemma in November but i was just too busy. I know mates are there regardless of how long you go between visits but my god i've missed them this year.
