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 ... Read review

DisadvantagesAn extremely stressful roller-coaster year professionally.

"...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 perception of any bad year – 2009 or, as it was to turn out 2010, can be lightened by closer examination, these annual reviews helping me indeed to do just that…… 2010 actually ..."

A Year of Transition

AdvantagesThe changes I have craved have come to fruition

DisadvantagesI will miss those fireworks on Edinburgh Castle as the bells ring!

"...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 finally being granted on my husband’s estate. Due to bad legal advice (or should that be non-existent legal advice) we received when we purchased our last home in 2006, I wasn’t able to sell the house ..." Read review

Reflecting on 2010: Visiting a Past & Creating a Future

AdvantagesReturning to Russia & Armenia. New job. New friends. Lots to celebrate.

DisadvantagesLosing an old friend.

"...can’t let a year in review go by without mentioning that I turned forty this year – its meant to be a big milestone – the halfway point in your life, but for some reason, it passed my by a little bit. Maybe its because its not the numbers that define who you are, but how old you feel in your heart. I am incredibly blessed to have two (soon to be three) lovely children and a patient, understanding and beautiful wife who puts up with me and keeps me ..." Read review

Disadvantagesvarious ones, including losing two pets

"...happened to see my first review of 2010) on the worst possible note when we had our thirteen year old cat Blue put to sleep on 2nd January. I actually collected her ashes because my parents spent almost all of the first five weeks of the year in Spain and when the vet phoned to say they were ready and - as stupid as it might sound - I didn’t like to leave her waiting in the vet’s until Mum and Dad came home. When our last cat Honey died in the late ..." Read review
