Blogging so little makes it seem like 2012 wasn't a good year. And it was, it so was.
Let's (re)view, shall we?
|1. I was a vegetarian. For a whole month. One of the highlights of this was definitely Spinach Pie.|
|3. I saw the stupidest car that ever lived.|
|4. I visited Emma in Nashville and went back to North Carolina on a mammoth one day road trip.|
|5. I judged a singer/songwriter contest show in Franklin, TN. (All the restaurant guests did, this wasn't based on my previous experience of CHW's Got Talent 2008).|
7. I was skiing on St. Patrick's Day - for the third time in my life, quite an achievement I'm sure you'll agree.
|8. I saw where the best burger in Denver is served. Unassuming I think you'll agree. They weren't open, otherwise I might have checked the veracity of their claim.|
|9. I was interviewed for local TV in Denver. I don't know if they ever showed it though.|
|10. I went to Mile High Stadium on the day Tim Tebow's future was unclear.|
|11. I had a cake decorated for me celebrating my dedication to CHW. Although, also accurately points out that I have been '1986-2012 minus some'.|
13. I went to Serbia.
|14. I did some Serbian dancing. Well, it seemed only polite.|
|15. I drank some Serbian rocket fuel. They don't market it as that though.|
|16. I made cake pops. They are the ultimate in bake-faffing.|
|17. I saw the Olympic flame. Lots, actually. But this photo is in Belfast.|
18. I went to the Olympics. Oh my goodness! I went to the Olympics and had the time of my life! At some point I'd like to blog properly about the experience.
19. For now I will say this: being in the stadium on Super Saturday was one of the best nights of my life. (The Opening Ceremony would definitely be another.)
20. I learnt that Rhythmic Gymnastics is a lifeskill. Granted this was from the commentator in arena; he may have been biased. (Yes, rhythmic gymnastics, it wasn't all about Team GB gold medals.)
|Jessica Ennis on her lap of honour with the other heptathletes. And, why yes that is the sandpit that Greg Rutherford had just jumped into on his way to Olympic Gold. (We were much closer than this picture would make it seem.)|
|21. I rode the London Underground with Becky Adlington and the Team GB swim team .|
|22. In other famous swimming news from 2012, I met Ian Thorpe.|
|23. I got the plane with Austin O'Callaghan. He was on his way back from the Olympics too.|
|24. I got a fringe. And then I grew it out.|
|25. I got to go to meetings where things like this are at your place. Yes!|
|26. I made beer butt chicken. And proved that life is a Friends episode.|
|27. I moved out. Again. And into a house where these get made...and there's spares sometimes! Yes!|
|28. I spent way too long looking at these blue chairs when I was waiting to hear that I hadn't broken my jaw.|
|29. I carved an Ulster pumpkin. It was my first pumpkin carving so I was fairly chuffed with my efforts.|
|30. I saw Ben Howard live. Keep your head up, keep your heart strong.|
So that's 2012. I loved it!
But like Jed would say 'what's next?'
