Looking back on 2015

Winter Solstice

So the year has almost come to a close and it’s been a real roller coaster of a year. People have come and people have gone. Financially it’s been a very tough one but I have learnt a lesson and that is not to bury my head in the sand. I have a wonderful, supportive, family and I suppose through the toughest times I forgot this. I’ve realised I can ask for help and I’ll never be judged by the people who matter most.

I’ve also realised that the dark days don’t stay forever and there is a light at the end of the tunnel if you just hang on in there. Now don’t get me wrong I have had some amazing times this year too. The journey towards the exhibition was so special and I’m blessed to have had the chance to do so many things.

Health wise apart from the scare at the beginning of the year and my Achilles heel problems all is good.

We adopted Puggly the dog this year, another light of my life, along with Rocket-dog I now have two babies. 🙂

Jono and Lucy are the most fantastic kids I could have ever wished for. I’m proud to be their mum and to be able to watch them grow into the wonderful adults they have become.

They say that behind every good man is a good woman well I’m turning the tables on that one. Andy is the best, he is such a supportive, strong man and this year we celebrated 25 years of marriage, so here’s to the next 25!

Gosh this turned out to be very gushing! Anyway that’s the year in a nutshell. This year has taught me that if you have your health, a supportive family (and two mad dogs), there isn’t much else you need. You’ll muddle through it all anyway.

Happy Christmas folks. xx

    Beautifully and lovingly expressed, Val. Lovely as always to see you at the markets this month, and a pleasure to meet Jono for the first time. Wishing you and your loved ones a very happy, joy-filled and peaceful Christmas, and here’s to ringing in a brilliant new year. Nollaig shona duit.

    Merry Christmas to you Val and your family, and all the very best for 2016. A favourite saying my parents always said was “your health is your wealth” and that is a so true.

    Well said Val, muddling through is how I feel with two teenage boys and a hubby who behaves like a teenager at times. I wish you all a very happy family Christmas and a great 2016.
