Things that Happened Last Year. Goodbye 2015.

Since I read Mel’s post on The Best Nest about some things she did in 2015 I have been thinking about stuff we did in 2015. It was kind of hard coming up with some positives as last year was pretty horrible and I am honestly glad it is over.

  1. Our car died and we experienced purchasing our first car as a couple
  2. Only traveled once for work (to Sydney)
  3. I did not blog enough
  4. Watched too much TV
  5. Lost our beloved cat Daisy-Doo
  6. Drank too much wine
  7. Loved spending time and hearing about my friends new babies
  8. Lost the plot and only went to the gym about 13 times
  9. Created my 101 things to do in 1001 days list
  10. Gave up Cat Rescue
  11. Turned 40
  12. For the first time in about 3 (or 4) years I did not do any walking/running events
  13. Caught public transport to work for about a month
  14. Discovered ‘The Katering Show’
  15. Did ‘Body Balance’ for the second time in my life
  16. Lost friends (one by my choice and one by theirs)
  17. Made a date with a friend to walk up Rangitoto in January 2016
  18. Mark went to Wellington A LOT
  19. Spent a day and night at a hotel with my two oldest friends
  20. Fixed our mortgage

What did you do in 2015? :)

Sunday mornings in Auckland

I decided to go out early on the last Sunday before Christmas before the roads got crazy. My aim was to get to Farro by 9am to get what I needed and get out quickly. 

This is what I thought or witness on my travels towards Grey Lynn:

Massey still asleep and peaceful

Kokako Coffee

Men in bicycles in tinsel and pink tutu’s

Stumbling and weaving as you walk home from last night along the start of K'Rd

Grey Lynn, walking home from the supermarket carrying a box of beer with one hand and holding an open bottle with the other....9am
