That was the year that was...........

Well, been a bit of a year, all told. Started off recovering from major surgery from just before last Chritmas, took me several months to get even vaguely right again. There followed a bout of what I now see as depression, although I didn't realise it at the time, and I've since read that depression is often a result of trying to be strong for too long. Looking back, I see this was the case, physically and emotionally, should have given myself more time. Marriage broke up, fell deeply in love, got my heart broken, now in limbo trying to find somewhere to move to still,a nd a job, get my business off the ground and get on with some writing. I found out yesterday that one of my closest friends died, so all in all it's been a pretty crap year!
However - I am strong, and looking to another New Calendar Year with hope and optimism. New people to meet, more laughter, new beginnings, new home, new relationships, more travelling, writing. Want to get back to painting and drawing again, play more fiddle, live on a houseboat, travel the country, sleep under the stars, camp on the beach, spend more time outdoors, do more walking, more reading, listen to more music, meet more people............ so much I want to do,and 2011 will be the year to do it I feel.
My continued heartfelt thanks for staying with the blog through everything this year, it means a lot to me, and I promise to get the photo thing sorted out as soon as I can, will need to take the laptop in and get it looked at.
I'd like to wih each and every one of you all theh very best for 2011, and hope it brings all you wish for, and a bit more.

Hi Sarah

Looking on the positive side its been a transition year for you (never mind the fact whether you wanted it or not) serendipity, fate, life has intervened taking you from one place to another and ultimately nearer to your destination. You should be very proud of yourself, having overcome so many issues, but still loving life and still looking to the next lesson or challenge. But just look at how much you have grown as a person. Well done you. But I am hoping that the coming year is much more calmer for you. Its better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all and each experience takes us to somewhere different.

Here's to you and your's. Go get em Sarah

with many hugs

What doesn't kill you, makes you stronger! Your blog has been an inspiration for me and your difficult year has been noted by your absence in blogland. I hope to read about your antics next year!
Wishing you good health and happiness for 2011 xx
