Goodbye 2011

So as this will be my last post for this year I would like to start by wishing you all a very Happy new year.
2011 has been an up and down year but there have been great points. Having started my studying with The Open University in Oct 2010, 2011 saw the results of 2 courses come through, A pass for AA100 and a grade 3 pass for A210 (the one with the exam). I have just sent off the 2nd assignment for creative writing and my 4th course starts in February. I am very proud of what I have achieved so far towards my degree and am looking forward to learning more. My weight loss has been at a standstill for a while but I haven't put weight on (except maybe this week !!!) so its not a bad thing. I also still have all the friends I started the year with and have made many more, including a bunch of online friends that I would one day love to meet up with in person :)

2011 also saw some really bad times, we can't change those we can only move forward and I hope that those who went through a bad year have a much better 2012.
For those that lost someone this year I can only hope that your memories will keep them alive for you.

For me personally the good times in 2011 outweigh the bad, though I know for many of my friends the bad times outweigh the good.
So to everyone, goodbye to 2011 and hello to 2012 may your wishes come true and your dreams become reality, I sincerely hope that the new year brings you and your families health and happiness :)

Happy New Year xxx

Christmas is ..........

My version of the Christmas is coming rhyme :)

Christmas is over, and I've gotten fat
my clothes don't fit me, not even my hat
I've ran out of money, not even a penny or two
a diet of water and fruit now, will just have to do !

and of course the original -

Christmas is coming, the geese are getting fat
Please to put a penny in the old man's hat;
If you haven't got a penny, a ha'penny will do,
If you haven't got a ha'penny then God bless you!

Just a few more minutes

I wish that I could have said goodbye
but you seemed in a hurry to leave.
If only I could have stopped you going
or kept you just a little longer.

No amount of time would be enough
to tell you how much I love you.
To tell you that i'll always miss you
and you'll never be forgotten.

Maybe I'm being selfish
by wishing you were still here.
Memories may stay with me for life
but my heart is broken forever.

I know you'd say move on, be happy
but that's easier said than done.
If we had our time over again
I'd never stop saying I love you.

I love you and I always will
you'll always be in my heart.
I know that you are gone from this world
but we won't be apart forever.
