Looking back on 2013

I have had a fabulous year!  Here’s some of my successes:

Exercise.  I have kept up with 4x per week exercise all year!  I love going to my exercise classes in the little gym, which is just down the road.  The classes are small, only 6-10 in the group, but we all get on very well and always have a laugh!  Sadly, I have not lost any weight, in fact, put too much on!

Travel.  Our fabulous holiday to California and Oregon!

Home projects.  A small project to update the porch turned into a massive job when we decided to decorate the hall stairs and landing and have a new front door!  We still have the wires to sort out!

Garden.  Towards the end of the year we did a huge amount of clearing, all these large shrubs are now gone, and the border will be ready to replant.  That is, once the rain has stopped and it is less waterlogged out there!

Crafting!  last but not least I have had a fabulous year of crafting, including completing several quilts, trying new things such as the glass fusion workshop, knitting, and rediscovering dressmaking.  I definately made the most of my new sewing machine!  Although scrapbooking took a bit of a back seat, I did complete a major reorganisation of my albums and completed several page challenges.

So I wonder what is in store for 2014?
