  • Mood:

there it was gone

 What did you do in 2010 that you'd never done before?
Went to Belgium, er, four times actually. I rather like Belgium.
Had a miscarriage. I'm quite surprised nobody noticed, because I was bloody enormous.

Did anyone close to you give birth?
Not 'close' but there was Stef and Hallie, and Lea and Gemma, and two of Andy's nieces.

Did anyone close to you die?
I lost a chum to a suicide. Again. 

Did you keep all of last years resolutions, and have you any resolutions for next year?
I don't think I made any. This year I would like to see my friends more often.  

What countries did you visit?
Belgium, France, Wales, Cornwall (yes it's a country.)

What would you like to have in 2011 that you didn't have in 2010?
£250 million. A cat. A cow.

What date in 2010 will remain etched in your memory?
May 17th. July 10th.

What was your biggest achievement of the year?
Staying awake, sometimes.

What was your biggest failure?
Not staying awake, sometimes.

Did you suffer any illness or injury?
The odd banged head and grazed knee, but not much to write home about.

What was the best thing you bought?
My new little laptop. A bit of an impulse buy, but Andy was away for ten days so it was needed to be able to keep in touch.

Whose behaviour merited celebration?
Andrew, for organising a massive gig in memory of a friend.  I have no idea why my html won't work, but it won't. http://www.southwalesargus.co.uk/news/8266869.Tribute_to_TJ_s_legend_John_Sicolo_rocks_Newport/"

Whose behaviour made you appalled and depressed?
The Lib Dems. I've voted Lib Dem since the days of the Liberal SDP alliance. I am never going to vote again. Never. I really mean that. Don't tell me my vote counts, because clearly it doesn't.

Where did most of your money go?
.Rent. Food.

What did you get really really really excited about?
Andrew coming home from tediously long tours, I suppose.

What songs will always remind you of 2010?
Hoots Mon. Sleepless in the New Seattle.

Compared to this time last year are you:

A. Fatter or thinner? Same.
B. Happier or sadder? Happier, but with added annoyance.
C. Richer or poorer? Richer. I paid off my bank loan, and had quite a surprise healthy payrise.

What do you wish you'd done more of?
Making an effort to go out.

What do you wish you'd done less of?
Going for a 'little nap' that lasted four hours.

How did you spend Christmas?
With Andy's family in Exeter. It was lovely.

Which LJ users did you meet for the first time?
Erm, none? LJ is like, so 2003 right?

Did you fall in love in 2010?
Yes. We were together for the last couple of months of 2009, but it very much became A Big Thing in 2010.

How many one night stands?

What was your favourite TV show?
Misfits, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Corrie.

What was/were the best books you read?
This has probably been my worst ever reading year. Although I was happy to get Catching Fire for my birthday, and I have a few Christmas books to get through.

What was your greatest musical discovery?
The Drains. I was pleasantly surprised/not embarrassed.

What was your favourite film this year?
Moon (was that this year?)

Do you hate anyone now that you didn't hate this time last year?
Gosh yes. Two women that I've never even met, but their names appearing on Facebook actually make me want to kill.

What did you do on your birthday and how old were you?
I was 43. We started the day in Brussels, then travelled to Lille. There was supposed to be a spectacular show of comets, but it rained all night.

How would you describe your personal fashion concept in 2010?
I wouldn't.

What kept you sane?
The internet, probably.

Who did you miss?
Holmes. I don't think I saw him all year. 

Who was the best new person you met?
That's not an easy question to answer is it? Because anyone you don't name will be all 'what about me?' Although Carl Bevan and Anushka deserve a mention.

Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned this year?
Unfortunately just a reinforcement of the old rules to trust no one, and don't believe a word anyone says. Oh well eh?
