Goodbye 2018

31 Dec

As 2018 draws to a close, I can’t help but thinking that it’s been another pretty good year.

This year I have:

  • had 5 weeks travelling around South America doing and seeing a lot of things that I never thought I would
  • read 68 books – a new personal record
  • moved into a new apartment that I love, love, love
  • quit a job that I didn’t like
  • completed 4 of my 40 Before 40 Challenges and 8 are almost finished
  • finally recovered from a knee injury so that I can get back to playing sports in 2019
  • made some new friends
  • became a vegan for 3 months and realised that not eating animal products is not the end of the world
  • had a celebrity reply to one of my tweets (Kim-Joy from Great British Bake Off)

All in all, it’s not been so bad at all. Of course there are some things that I have said that I will do but I haven’t got round to them but everyone has things that they have to carry over into next year. I see it as having a few extra things to tick off next year. I have high hopes for next year and I hope that I will be able to cross off more than a few the challenges from my list.

I hope you also will be saying goodbye to 2018 with fond wishes and high hopes for 2019.

All the best, thank you for reading in 2018 and Happy New Year!

      I would highly recommend it! It really was a dream come true! It hasn’t been at all bad – no complaints from me! Hope your year has been good too!

        One day I will! So many plans, but so little time (with a rascally toddler!) 😉

    I’m so glad you love your apartment. I think it’s important to love the place you live.
    Happy New Year to you. I hope 2019 is even better!

      Thank you! We still do have some pictures to hang on the wall 🙈 but apart from that it’s pretty perfect. Wish you all the best for 2019. I know this year hasn’t been kind to you but I’m certain next year is going to be a whole lot better!
