2009 Highlights

by Mothership on January 2, 2010

I have been very kindly asked to share my highlights of 2009 by A Modern Mother .

Flattering as this was, it was also momentarily alarming as it seemed that the stroke of New Year had wiped my brain completely clear of memory, and I had stumbled into the new decade like a latter day Kaspar Hauser with better footwear (Kaspar Marcos? Imelda Hauser?)

Then I remembered that I had actually written down what had happened over the previous twelve months thanks to the blog so I’d be able to dredge up something to talk about.

Apologies to those loyal readers who have already been through this journey once with me. It’s no doubt extremely dull to hear me waffle on about the year gone by – a bit like being cornered at a party with me yapping on in a great monologue about what I did next, ooh and then I said to him and then I went, and he did, but then I ….

The good thing is that you won’t have to pretend to spot someone you have to speak to urgently across the room, or ring yourself on the iPhone in order to get away, you can click quietly and I’ll never know…

Five finally grew old enough to take on shopping trips as a compadre.

I actually identified something that I really wanted for my birthday.  Even more shockingly, I got it!

I decided to go to London by myself on a little jaunt, inspired by a random lunch invitation.

I made a new, young musician friend (who incidentally still writes to me and sends me his fledgeling efforts!)

My darling son makes me laugh and laugh.

I was asked to do a gig in London which thrilled me to my fingertips, so off I went again. Had to brush off quite a bit of dust, though..

Felt gratitude at how very, very lucky I am.

Looking forward to 2010 and seeing what that will bring. It’s a good thing I wrote this all down, I would never have remembered it all.

Nappy Valley Girl, GeekyMummy,MetropolitanMum, London City Mum, and The Spice Spoon, what were your highlights of 2009?

Ahhh, I am honoured. Thank you!

PS: Great to hear you are still in contact with Max. That post really moved me.

F*ck me – am I able to write something that will not entail B’Stard Company trying to level another luverley letter spluttering about libel and slander and calling people names (sticks and stones, anyone?)

How silly, of course. All the more reason to!

Thanks for the tag – come visit shortly when I shall seek to emulate your attempts.

Thanks for the tag – you finally nudged me into writing something, Susanna having tagged me before New Year! Enjoyed your highlights.

I clicked over to read why you Felt Gratitude. I missed the post first time round. Wow, what a story.

Happy New Year.
