Last year, on Valentine’s Day, I published my review of 2009, in many ways not the most upbeat of my writings here, although 2009 on closer examination had turned out to have at least a few highlights. Maybe it is because I am not the most optimistic of individuals generally, but my overall...

“A Year of Transition”

As 2011 beckons, I have been thinking long and hard about writing my review of 2010. This year has been one of change for me and my daughter, and that is something I have been yearning for over the past couple of years since my husband died in March 2008. Last year came to an end with probate...

“30 Days In Spring”

published 25/12/2010

I once wrote that some years are defined by a colour. I remember a yellow year: a year of a profusion of sunlight and buttercups, of ripe wheat and golden candles. I remember a deep purple year of depression and window-seat nights and teenage angst, clad in dark velvet and red wine. Some years...

Losing an old friend.

“I like the dreams of the future better than the history of the past” (Thomas Jefferson – Third President of the United States) I am not generally the retrospective sort. I prefer to look forward, to the future, rather than to dwell in the past. That said, sometimes it’s worth looking back to...

Having to come back to Newcastle

Sorry you can't see the pics - hopefully Ciao will resolve this soon. Early on in 2010 I was checking some dates in the diary that sits on the corner of the computer desk in our spare room, which, until the recent purchase of a lovely netbook, was the nerve centre of the fizzytom travel agency...

No, it's not the boring questionnaire on what I got up to this year but my A-Z on 2010 in general. Lady Gaga is far more important than me. Isnt he...err she!

Not for me

My friends have got me through it.

My life being turned upside down in so many ways.

When we were in the car going down to Essex for Christmas 2009, my husband turned to me and said; “Mary, I’m going to give you the BEST Christmas EVER.” If I could go back to any one moment in time, that would be it, just so I could turn to him and say “REALLY Al, are you REALLY?” And then I...

various ones, including losing two pets

I keep getting woken up by the Pogues and Wham! on my sister’s stereo - I don’t think she’d be seen dead with an 80s CD in her room. My mum has been dropping subtle hints and not so subtle hints to my dad about how the hedge would be really nice with a few fairy lights in it. The fridge is packed...

Lots of travel with my family.

Dad being ill.

The end of 2009 bought the burial of a friend of mine, she was a wonderful lady who had battled MS for years without complaint but who was then viciously struck down by an incurable cancer and she died leaving two young sons. My husband and I have lost several friends over the years to illness...

“A year in view”

published 27/12/2010

A child was born

Car accident

This time last year was fairly bleak. I had managed to get very overworked, then in the last few months of 2009 my partner (more baggage than Heathrow) decided to have massive fallings out with all of his family, and dragged me into it, culminating in his moving out and spending his Christmas...

“Review of the year”

published 10/01/2011

not many

most of the year

I have been torn whether to write one of these reviews as last year wasn't the best. Having read quite a few 'Reviews of the year' by others I decided to take the plunge as I'm hoping that by the time I write a review of 2011 it will be a lot happier! January~ After a quiet and quite sad...

2010 was a very dramatic year for me and my family and looking back over the year it is hard to believe that certain things happened to us as a lot of the year was spent somewhat detached from reality in my opinion, we seemed to leap from one dramatic or life changing event to the other, so...

“The Zen of 2010”

M, some lovely memories

losing my nana

“It was the best of time, it was the worst of times” . Like most years 2010 was a mixed bag for me. I have some precious memories of 2010 with lots of gigs, weekends away and celebrations but on the other hand there have been sad and bad times too. JANUARY “A Winter's Wedding January started off...

It was within the last twenty minutes of 2010 that Neil Simon of Biffy Clyro was up on stage in Edinburgh's Princes Street Gardens and he announced: 'This is the last song you'll hear in 2010'. It was in the next few minutes that they played 'Whorses.' There's something so instantly uplifting...

“Finding the silver linings”

published 28/12/2010

My year was overall pretty good

one minor mishap

As studies show that humans tend to remember bad times rather than the good, I thought this would be a good place to write down my highlights of 2010, as I don’t want to remember 2010 as a bad year. I also thought it’d be a good time to get into the swing of writing again, after some gentle...
