Word of the Year

I have read a couple of blogs where they have picked a word for the year.  I haven't heard of this before but think its a great idea. 

After a bit of thinking I went back to the first word that sprung to mind which is "change".

A big change will be a new career.  Something that I have thought about doing for about 4 years and now I am taking the plunge and doing it.  Will it work out?, only time will tell but I am excited and feeling positive. 

Another change will be cosmetic changes to our home, with plans being made to decorated and some work required outside.

I have always thought I don't like change, I do like to stay in my comfort zone but this time I actually feel excited.  A year ago this week I lost my mum which was a massive change in my life, so emotional, more than I expected.  Mum had changes in her life, moving from London to an isolated farm when she married my Dad, after 10 years of marriage another big changes were when I came along, my Dad passing away and then moving into a flat.  She viewed her life as different chapters and for me, this year, its is just another chapter.  One that I am looking forward to.

Big Changes...

Happy New Year.

Last year was full of highs and lows. 

I sadly lost my Mum in January and then in November her brother passed away.  Work is another big change.  Due to things that have occurred in the last few months I feel I can no longer work with the people I do. 

The good things to have come out of these are the love of my friends and family.  My cousins came to Mums funeral and for the first time I felt like I had bothers and sisters.  We are not a close family, however, I think the things that have happened this year have made us closer and I like that.  My friends have been such a support too and I have also been reminded who my true friends are.

There have been many highlights too, seeing Prince live, camping in Wales, holidays in Spain, a festival and the best one of all being present at the birth of my best friends little girl.

The plans for this year are to change jobs, things are in the pipeline for this which if come off means a complete career change and a lot lower salary.  But I hope with this change (fingers crossed) I will be happier and have a better work/life balance.  We are still working on the house, there is more to do than we first thought but we will get there.  I hope to have more time to do things that I would like to, hobbies, spending time with my hubby and friends, oh and blog! :)
