Happy New Year!

Welcome to my first post for 2013 – I hope you all had a pleasant Christmas and a happy New Year. Ours was a quiet family Christmas, with the addition of my godmother this year – unfortunately, the ME/CFS made itself known, so I wasn’t able to do as much as I would have liked, but I still enjoyed myself. I even got to feed a reindeer in December, which made me very happy!

2012 was a busy year, with several weddings and, sadly, a funeral. Interesting things included reuniting a lady with a brother she hadn’t seen for 69 years. Unfortunately, I can’t let you know what happened as she never contacted me to let me know the outcome! C’est la vie. I finally managed to get Karma on sale again through Amazon Kindle. Personal achievements included a surprisingly good exam result in my Psychology exam and, for the first time ever, completing NaNoWriMo – that really did take its toll, though it does mean that I am half way through my second novel, Look Who’s Stalking. I had hoped to publish on 14th February 2013 but I think it will be later than that as I don’t want to rush it. I am also studying Creative Writing as part of a degree course – not really enjoying it, as my tutor is pretty hard to please. Starting to wish I’d stuck with Psychology (speaking of the OU, I should be working on an assignment as I type).

I’m not making any resolutions this year as everything we would like to do is dependent on money (which we have little of). If I win the Euromillions, I would like to learn to drive (which would open the door to a few other things I would like to do, but I’ll tell you those things if I ever pass my driving test). Ideally, I would wish for a cure for ME/CFS but as that’s unlikely, I’d hope for a little more understanding (baby steps).

I’ll leave you for now, as I need to research something for my grandad’s birthday: he’ll be 90 this month! Wishing you good health and happiness in 2013. x
