End of year meme

Click here to see last year’s answers for comparison.  And feel free to do this on your own blogs!   Let me know if you do so I can see your answers.

1. What did you do in 2009  that you’d never done before?

Went to New Zealand.

2. Did you keep your new year’s resolutions, and will you make more for next this year?

I don’t bother with resolutions.  I never keep them anyway, so what’s the point?

3. Did anyone close to you give birth?

No, no new babies this year.

4. Did anyone close to you die?

Thankfully, no.

5. What countries did you visit?

New Zealand.  Broome.  Okay Broome is in Australia but it’s so far away it might as well be another country.

6. What would you like to have in 2010 that you lacked in 2009 ?

More french champagne.

7. What dates from 2009 will remain etched upon your memory, and why?

None in particular.

8. What was your biggest achievement of the year?

Getting up every day.  My bed is so cozy I hate to leave it.  And getting our garden done, finally.

9. What was your biggest failure?

Do you know, I don’t think I had any major failures this year.  That’s a big achievement!

10. Did you suffer illness or injury?

I have had probably the worst year of my life, health wise.  There has been nothing majorly wrong with me, but I have suffered a lot of migraines, a severe case of gastro, too many headcolds…

11. What was the best thing you bought?

My Manolo Blahniks.  My iPhone.

12. Where did most of your money go?

The mortgages.

13. What did you get really, really, really excited about?

Booking our holiday to China and Russia.  Getting tickets to see George Michael in March 2010.

14. What song will always remind you of 2009?

The Boy Does Nothing by Alesha Dixon, forever known in our house as the wash up song.  Listen to it and you’ll know why.

15. Compared to this time last year, are you:

a) happier or sadder?

Just as happy as last year.

b) thinner or fatter?

About the same.  Maybe a bit thinner because I was sick before Christmas and couldn’t eat for a week.

c) richer or poorer?

No poorer, but I don’t think we’re much richer.  But that’s perfectly fine with me.

16. What do you wish you’d done more of?


17. What do you wish you’d done less of?

Sit on the couch.

Still loving House and NCIS.  I have developed a tragic addiction to How I Met Your Mother too.

Hold on while I go look at my books.  Er, couldn’t really say.

Inglorious Basterds.

Huffle Mawson.  She’s so bonkers you can’t help but laugh.

George Clooney.  The man gets better looking every year.

Dave and Melissa.  Missa shares my love of shoes 🙂
