As one year flows away it’s time to look back. I had a brilliant 2013, I’ve done so much and am very grateful for being able to enjoy so many brilliant experiences. There are so many highlights but I can’t mention them all so I’ll just do a few.
Last years New Year’s Resolutions were to milk a cow and fly in a plane over Sligo…not both at the same time I have to add, although if the plane was big enough and the cow was willing sure I’d give it a go!! Thanks to Viewmount Farm I got to milk a cow and thanks to Sligo Aero Club I got up in the plane.
Coney Island was another place I’d wanted to visit and thanks to Medbh I got there this year.
I also went back to college part-time and completed two computer courses and am part of the way through a drama course, which I absolutely love.
I’ve climbed mountains, visited derelict buildings, taken boat trips, explored an old gaol and a free masons lodge. I’ve had a look around a theatre and enjoyed many shows throughout the year. I met Lawson and got to have a look around the set of Fair City.
I’ve travelled to Spain, Italy, England and France (and I never usually go anywhere except England). I’ve been involved in a book about Sligo and most importantly I’ve met some new people this year some of whom I’m sure I’ll be friends with for years to come. I also won a twitter award!!
It’s hard to believe I fitted so much into 365 days!!
So I’m very much looking forward to 2014 and seeing what adventures await. So far my only New Year’s Resolutions are to visit the Botanic Gardens and Glasnevin Cemetery in Dublin. I was thinking about adventurous activities but surfing was the only thing that crossed my mind and to be honest I’m terrified of the wetsuit!!! I also want to go back in a plane again, this time over Coolaney/Collooney. I’m hoping to go to see Magnum in concert and also Jeff Wayne’s War of the Worlds. I wouldn’t mind a trip to Clare and maybe the Aran Islands but it depends on funds. I’d also love to get to Northern Ireland but again we’ll see.
I hope you all have a very Happy 2014 and thanks so much for all the comments and views.
