Well, that's it, Christmas is over and the new year starts tomorrow!
Christmas was nice. It was very relaxed and easy going and really I've not done a lot. We were all spoiled rotten and I think we managed to spoil the people we bought for...I hope anyway!
We've had a busy and fairly eventful year when I think back...although no doubt I've forgotten a million and one things that have happened! We started the year being told we had to figure out what we were doing with the house and get the purchase through ASAP, which went so well it took until September 18th to finalise. Work has been fairly steady for me, even with the usual summer holiday dip, but I've come to expect that now and can at least attempt to compensate. We had a few weeks of unbelievable weather - both beautiful and our freak white out that caused us to have no power/heat for 6 days. Fun! We've been to a good few weddings which were all beautiful, seen our friends get engaged and have babies and all kinds of lovely things so all in all I think it's been mainly a positive year.
For my family it's been a mixed year. The biggest event probably being David going missing and his body being found a couple months later. My uncle and his partner are still fighting to find out what really happened to him and are trying to change legislation regarding pubs and drink spiking.
For James and I, after the house purchase, our biggest event has been finding out about little fidget pants McEnaney. I think that could be his/her new name, because he's certainly living up to it in there! It'll be our biggest event of 2014 too which is exciting. On Sunday I turned 18 weeks and James felt fidget pants kick for the first time. I've been feeling movement for a couple weeks but nothing that he could have felt. I've gained a massive 0.5kg on my pre-pregnancy weight and my nurse yesterday couldn't believe I'm 18 weeks because apparently I look too neat haha. At least I'm not having to be rolled about yet! That said I've a chest infection that hasn't shifted with 2 weeks of oral antibiotics so I've been put on another 2 weeks and to get IVs next week if it still hasn't budged. Lung function didn't even hint at budging. Could really do without being on more than 28 days worth but needs must I guess if it goes that far.
I can't really think of anything else to say at the moment other than I hope everyone has a healthy and happy 2014 and I hope our 2014 turns out to be as good as it's looking!
Much love xxx
