    Year in Review 2013 – Not The 48 Crash

    “You’ve lost a lot of weight. You look fantastic” is the most common phrase I’ve heard this year, usually followed shortly afterwards by a secondary question, almost whispered, “You’re okay, aren’t you?”. “Yes I’m OK”, I’ve told lots of people this year, as they’ve queried my weight loss. Although not as much as I’d hoped, I’ve slimmed down a bit this year thanks to the combination of “low levels of exercise, sensible eating, and a reduced level of alcohol consumption”.… Read the rest “Year in Review 2013 – Not The 48 Crash”

  • Year in Review 2012

    Year in Review 2012

    It was just me and Kylie for New Year’s Eve this year. After spending last year in Perth, and the year before in Lismore, I didn’t really feel like spending this year at the fireworks in Sydney, or at Tropical Fruits in Lismore. So I spent the night listening to some late night music and watching the fireworks curated by Kylie.… Read the rest “Year in Review 2012”

  • Year In Review 2011

    Year In Review 2011

    It’s been a funny year. It’s been a mixed year. It’s been a year of ups and downs. Mostly it’s been a pretty good year, though there have been times. Yes, there have been times…

    I started the year catching a flight back from Lismore to Sydney. I’d been in Lismore for about ten days visiting the family.… Read the rest “Year In Review 2011”

  • Year in Review 2010

    Year in Review 2010

    As I sit down on New Years Eve to think about what’s happened in my life this year, there’s so much to reflect upon: overseas trips, new adventures at work, and the death of a close family member.

    I ended last year feeling 2009 had been a year of treading water: I hadn’t really done all that much exciting in either my personal or professional life.… Read the rest “Year in Review 2010”

  • 2009 – The Year that was – Needs to try harder

    2009 – The Year that was – Needs to try harder

    I always knew it was going to be a bit of a life changing experience, and it was. At the end of this year, I’m conscious about how much I’m still referring back to it. But I don’t want to become one of those people who keeps referring back to things that happened in the past.… Read the rest “2009 – The Year that was – Needs to try harder”

  • Life Changing Year – 2008

    Life Changing Year – 2008

    Well, that’s most definitely NOT the way I feel about this year. Rather it’s been one of the most amazing years of my life. For me, it’s been a year of extreme highs and extreme lows. I feel like I’ve ended the year , though in a pretty good state of mind, and with a high degree of optimism and positivity about the future.… Read the rest “Life Changing Year – 2008”

  • Year in Review 2007

    Year in Review 2007

    As I sit down to write this “year in review”, I’m conscious that I’m more interested in what’s ahead in 2008 than what occured in 2007. Not that it was a bad year in my life, it’s just that I’m approaching 2008 with a great deal more excitement than I approached 2007.… Read the rest “Year in Review 2007”

  • 2006 – Year In Review

    2006 – Year In Review

    Twelve months ago I was still in the midst of coping with turning forty. At about this time last year I wrote… “Turning forty wasn’t so bad after all, although I did have a brief midlife crisis in the weeks leading up to the actual event. I began comparing myself with others, wondering about the lives of my peers, i.e.… Read the rest “2006 – Year In Review”

  • Year in Review – 2005

    Year in Review – 2005

    525,600 minutes, 525,000 moments so dear.
    525,600 minutes – how do you measure, measure a year?
    In daylights, in sunsets, in midnights, in cups of coffee.
    In inches, in miles, in laughter, in strife.
    In 525,600 minutes – how do you measure a year in the life?
    How about love? How about love?
