Well other year is over and judging by all your comments on my last post I'm not alone in feeling like a hamster!
On New Years eve I sat alone at midnight thinking back over the year & reading my posts to see what I did .....well it seems I did alot!
It started in January with a new addition to my family, Bracken, then other in March, Matthew.....then the joy of finding out my friend was pregnant ....finally!! She gave birth in November to Samuel. So 3 babies came in 2009.
In February I had the problem of having to move due to mortgage problems which thankfully sorted themself out in April so it was all change again..... not sure what this year will bring but we're thanking our lucky stars we didn't move back to my home town. I visited it the other day for the first time in months, lots of shops have closed & most of the pubs.....it really is sad. Tesco's opened a superstore just outside the town......need I say more!
In May I set off to the Vintage & Handmade fair to meet fellow bloggers.....and talking of fellow bloggers I've been lucky to meet quite a few in the last year.....
Sal......more then once but we had a lovely day shopping in Totnes, Hen, Nicky, Jayne, Michele, Julie, Donna, Posy..... I started chatting to a customer about her shopping bag, sewing & crocheting & it turned out to be her!!.........Victoria & Kelly...A lovely evening out in London with pizza....Let's hope we can do it again this year!
2009 was also the year I joined the Brownies....and left very quickly!!! I didn't go back after the summer holiday, she called me one day saying there was a planning meeting that evening & I must attend as they started back the following day..... rubbish organization....I think it would've been better if I had joined another group but I found it a real drain on my time. For 2010 I have other plans for my evenings....something I've been trying to sort out for about 5 years!
We all took part in the Innocent Big Knit with some great results.......here's to the next one :)
I started selling my makes in a local shop in March & sent stuff to my first fair in July......in November I took the plunge & did my first one! I finished the year with 4 & they were very successful.....I've also got a meeting with a local shop this month so they can sell my things. I've been working towards this for the last 15 years....I need to keep going otherwise I'll be back to square one...... hopefully 2010 will be a good year for josiemary.
At the end of the year I sometimes feel I haven't made as much as I wanted....due to the fact my list is always so long!....I look at other peoples blog & wonder where they find the time! However I decided to delve into my photo's to find I have made more then I thought!
But the list is still very long :(
Thanks so much for dropping by over the last year, I've enjoyed your company :) For some reason I feel really positive about 2010...... I don't normally bother with the new year but I feel this will be a good 'un
