Goodbye 2010...Wish I could say it had been nice knowing you

The year is at an end and thank goodness for that!

My nerves are shot to hell thanks to the stress of this year. Although there have been lots of highlights, it has been one big rollercoaster of emotions that were completely beyond my control. I know nothing completely devastating has happened but all those little things that build up have just made me relieveing to see the back of this year.

- Completed race for life
- Finished my first year of study with the Open Uni
- Celebrated mine and Mark's two year anniversary with a trip to Portugal
- Met some lovely AYMErs
- Visited an ayme friend in Gloustershire
- Passed my driving test

- Yet another relapse
- Six year anniversary of being ill
- Minor breakdowns all over the place, no idea what has been up with my emotions during the latter part of this year.
- Mark just got sacked...their timing definitely stinks!

There are probably lots of things I've forgotten but at least if I can't remember it, it won't cause me stress =]

Goodbye 2010. I wish I could say it's been nice knowing you but I can't so goodbye will have to do.
So here's to the New Year! May it be a good one!

It was enchanting to meet you

I intended to post this last month but as usual I'm a useless blogger! So anyway on with the story at hand. the 30th November marked the two year anniversary of mine and Mark's relationship and we celebrated by going to Bibi's, a restaurant in Leeds. It was just typical that the ground was covered in ice an inch thick so I had to wrap up warm and wear my wellies. So there we were in a fancy restaurant ordering venison and swordfish whilst wearing horrible wellies and my dress covered by a thick jumper. Despite the bad fashion statement, we had a lovely evening and Mark bought me tickets to see The Script at the O2 arena in March as a gift =D We are going to make a long weekend of it and have a day out in London too.
I doesn't seem five minutes since we first met. We are more in love than ever and I honestly can't wait until March when fingers crossed we are going to start looking for a house to buy.
Then fingers crossed Mark will ask me a certain's hoping anyway =P
Now, moving on to the festive season. For once I'm actually looking forward to it. Usually I'm Bah Humbug! and I have been ever since becoming ill because I always had it in my head that it was just going to be another day of feeling rubbish. Of course the day always came and went without too much ill hassle but I still never really got excited about it. Maybe that's just an adult thing, I'm not sure. Anyway, this year I had all my christmas shopping done early, lots of wishes from friends and this will be my first proper christmas with Mark. We decorated the tree together and had a party for a few lovely AYMEr's. It was brilliant to see everyone.

(excuse the blurriness, my camera was drunk!)
It does look like it will be a beautiful day after all and hopefully my health behaves for the weekend.

I hope you all have a magical Christmas with your loved ones around you and for those who are ill, I wish you good health for the new year and lets hope Santa has put us in for a cure.
