The Year that was – 2014

I’ve been tagged by the lovely Louise aptly called “A New Year’s Tag”.  Admittedly I’m a bit late for this, but hey, better late than never right?  So here goes …

What was your highlight of 2014?

The road trip to France and a quick dash to Belgium, made even more special when two members of my family from the Phil were able to join us.  We also managed to take little T to Disneyland, and of course, Paris.  It was a lovely ten-day holiday, even though it rained really hard on the first few days, and it was scorching hot in Paris!

This was also the year Little T started “big school” 🙂

What are you excited for in 2015?

There are a couple of things I am excited about, but I don’t really want to jinx it, so I’m afraid I’m going to have to keep this one a bit of a secret.  Will share it with you guys, when I absolutely know that it’s certainly going to happen 😉  For now, I shall be mum about it.

Any New Year’s Resolutions?

Don’t believe in making them.  Used to write a long list when I was younger, but always failed to tick it off.  What’s the point?  I’m a great believe in Nike’s old slogan “Just do it!”, so if there’s really something you want to do in your life, you don’t need to wait till the year is over and the New Year has come to do it, just do it!

Blogging high?

Don’t really have a blogging high, because I don’t really pay much attention to stats and other stuff.  I love to blog, this is my “me” time.  I guess my blogging high is when bloggers I admire and really like also visit my blog and comment.  Now that gives me a real high 😉

Picture of the year?

Loads!  But if I have to pick one, it would have to be little T’s first day of school photo.

 What about you?

What was the highlight of your 2014?

    Lovely year! I adore Paris, and I’m looking forward to taking the kids there. Sounds like you had fun. And that picture of Little T’s first day is just adorable. Precious, and almost unbelievable our girls are already at school! x

  2. Aww thank you for the tag lovely 🙂 when you look at it all together it looks like you had a very busy 2014 – and 2015 sounds like it’s going to be exciting – I’ll admit I’m a little curious about your top secret plans – fingers crossed and good luck it all works out 🙂

    • Definitely need the good luck 😉 Thank you! Once things are a bit more definite will mention it here 🙂 x

  3. Thank you for linking up and lovely to read about your year – going to Disneyland Paris sounds amazing and I love the photos of Little T meeting Mickey Mouse and her first day at school. Good luck with your plans for 2015 and I love your attitude towards New Year’s resolutions. Hope 2015 will be a good year for you and look forward to reading more from your blog this year 🙂
