I've finally come round to reciprocating these lovely awards from the equally lovely Ann and lovely KarenG. A big THANK YOU to you both for nominating this silly little blog.
I'm tempted to ask the Cat for her list and answers.. hm...*ponders*High Fives
List 5 highlights of 2009:
1) Joined an online writing course at the Uni of Exeter in Feb-March: extremely casual, helped me gain my confidence, helped me start writing again and led me to my Open Uni course that I am thoroughly enjoying.
2) Lost weight successfully. I didn't go on a diet but I increased my exercise regime - lots of jumping around to Rosemary Conley DVDs - gawd bless her!
3) Won a tiny flash competition, first prize £50. The site (brevitything.com)that hosted it is now defunct - but not after I cashed the cheque! LOL!
4) Survived my one year anniversary as an independent woman after 10 years in coupledom
5) Turned 40.
