what a year!

Wow, I can't believe that this is the last day of 2017! Where has the year gone? 

This year has been an odd one (I feel like I've said that before). It has been a big year of change; some highs and sadly some very lows. Having said that, I think 2017 is the year that I learnt a lot about myself and that I am much stronger than I thought. 

I bought my first property and I think I am settling in. The flat is 95% complete with a few more bits and pieces to finish it off. I love driving home and coming back to the flat. Who would've thought? Ha! Even though I am still not a fan of cooking, I am working on making healthy meals for myself. Having said this, I miss living with my family and seeing them everyday. Of course I am including my two cheeky dogs into that. But I love having my own space.

The hardest part of this year was losing my Grandad so early on. I have to say that this has probably clouded every happiness that I have from this year. You do learn to cope and live with it. It sounds odd to say, but it almost is a different way of living because nothing is quite the same now. I am not saying this in a negative way but this is how I feel right now. I miss him so much but I know that he is near me and he's protecting me. 

Like I said before 2017 was a year of change and that meant saying goodbye to people but also building stronger relationships with others. Friends have been very important to me this year and I have had to learn the hard way about the true meaning of friendship and to value the ones that I have for they have made me the way I am and I cannot wait to have more fun with them. Here's to more fun and photos!!!

I have taken on a different adventure at work and although it is challenging and sometimes hard, I love that I am learning new things and building something great and helping others.  I hope next year will be a good one work wise. 

How could I forget my health and fitness! I have realised that I do not actually enjoy training myself as much. I've heard that this is the same for people. Going to the gym and training with Alex has been a God send his year, especially when I was going through some pretty difficult times. He still pushes me to my limit (and then some) but even through every pain and every moan, I really do appreciate the time he has put in and trained with me and the results I am getting. I went through a little gym rut recently, but snapped out of it. My body has changed so much over the year. I still have work to do but I know I can do it. He hasn't left me just yet so fingers tightly crossed to some more hard work. You are a true buddy Alex!  Since moving into the flat, I am becoming more strict with my diet and what I eat. I am looking forward to training harder, working on my body and eating better in 2018. Watch this space!

As for my blog...I still hope to continue blogging. I have a few posts almost ready so that's exciting. My goal this coming year is more photos. I have taken to loving the camera a little more (still shy to be in front of one, but working on that). I want to say thank you to those who read my blog and email me when they do. I do appreciate it. 

I hope that 2018 is a great year for everybody. Let's make it a good one xx
