My wonderful friend Leah writes so well. I just love reading her blog. Her response to the above question bought a great big smile to my face and of course .... got me thinking. 2008 for me was a mixed year ... a year of change and change is always tough. When I chat to close friends locally about "stuff" going on in my life, they are surprised "really!! You'd never know from your blog". So there were many good things that happened - personally my scrapping life went to a whole new and exciting level; Katie adjusted over the months to being in care and has thrived; and Hugh well, being presented with "Student of the Year" pretty much sums up his year. We are so proud of both of them. Yet despite all this it has been a very challenging year with many bumps in the road and turns that I was not prepared for. So in answer to the above set question, I could not state one memory but an overall feeling that I have done some hard yards and come up trumps. I have learnt lessons and grown from them. And perhaps the most important of them all is through it all these three people you see in the photo below mean the world to me and are my world. That is what I take with me from 2008.
