There are so many negative end of year comments being made today that I felt the need to try to counteract them. This is my list of why 2012 was a fabulous year, both personally and in general. I know that there was also a lot of loss but I would rather focus on the positive heading into next year and start with a positive outlook! 1. Queen Elizabeth became a bond girl. 2. I witnessed one of my best friends marry the man of her dreams 3. I met my little cousin Adam for the first time 4. My best friend got engaged to her wonderful boyfriend 5. My baby brother met and fell in love with his fiancé Kate 6. My cousin Nicola FINALLY got engaged to her lovely boyfriend Eoin 7. My mum graduated from university after spending three/four years studying 8. James brother-in-law graduated in nursing. 9. My aunt Olive received her masters 10.I started my current job, a job which I love 11. I helped set up the store newsletter for my area. How fun!
