Happy New Year lovely people.
I like to do an end of year reflection and it helps keep things in perspective. These are just a few of the things that Rocked my year... (Picture heavy)
2014 was the year of...
First lost teeth and first haircuts...My first Comicon. I was only going for a day out with my sister. She ended up poorly but Devvie and I went anyway. We loved it so much we're going again this year. Jaw dropping art in artists alley. Amazing outfits, we met Wonderwoman - oh yeah and Superman and more importantly, met up with Sarah too.
2014 was also the year that Frozen mania seemed to take over the house.
Awards... there were many. I'm so proud of my girls.
Lots of art was done this year but in particular was the one we all did together. We finished our Family canvas and it now hangs in our living room.
I can legitimately say I've been exhibited. The Twitter Art Exhibit took place in Orlando and was such a fun thing to do. Can you see my crow just over that lady's shoulder? I'm taking part again this year - you can too - click here for details.
I'm still seeing Silver Crow flying around our area, that does make me happy.
We had some lovely weather this year that made for some gorgeous walks...
I had a 3.5stone weightloss between May 1st and Christmas Eve...

And then a 6.5lb gain in the week that followed. Whoops! Christmas grub was enjoyed muchly but am very much looking forward to getting back on the Slimming World plan - it has to be said.
We lost a friend, very suddenly and very unexpectedly. She lived life to the full and was doing something to get her where she wanted to be. She was such an inspiration and very encouraging to me in what I wanted to do. Because of her 2014 was the year I stopped saying "when." When the kids are older. When we have more time. When we have more money. No more. You just might never get that "when." So with the support of Craig I decided to turn my "when" into "now". We looked into art classes and degree courses. We went to open days. We talked and talked about what could realistically happen. We found out I needed a Maths GCSE to apply and I am now enrolled and
struggling *ahem* doing that.

Phew - it's certainly been a year of change.
There's so much more I haven't mentioned... but I finish with a smile on my face.
I'm so lucky to have the family that I do, including my Dad, Craig's Mum. And all you lot, you know who you are - the ones who are there. Just... there. You understand my social awkwardness and clumsiness and still. You're there. You dafties. I love you all.
I hope 2015 is an amazing year for us all.
Thanks for stopping by.
