Holiday’s are Coming 🙂 ’tis the season to be merry, enjoy the company of our family, friends and loved ones, eat until we are forced to lie down and be VERY still until the over eating feeling passes – maybe that’s just me?! – and to look back over this past year as we prepare for the next….2012 baby!!
2011 has been an incredible year full of joy, sadness, successes, huge obstacles, incomprehensible stress levels, moving house too many times to count and I owe a lot of it to the wonderful people in my life, the people who have supported me and stood by me through thick and thin.
The financial climate has been dire yet again, but nevertheless with the support of the following companies, sponsorship enabled me to travel to China to compete in the AG World Triathlon Championships. For this I’d like to say a very special thank you to Freelance World, Run 4 It and to McIntosh Plant Hire, I really appreciate your support and could not have made it there without you!!
Secondly, but by no means inferiorly, my thanks goes to all of my personal sponsors who contributed by sponsoring me and my Mum across the Lairig Ghru, by sending generous donations and believing in me also. Your kind words and support were taken with me to Beijing, and truly helped me through the actual event.
I know I have previously said my thanks to all these people but I felt they were worthy of further recognition!
2011 was the year I also graduated from the Robert Gordon University with a 2.1 in Physiotherapy. I have since been working through various steps to allow me to travel stateside to employment in America – no mean feat by any account, and I still have a way to go but getting there slowly and surely. I also returned to the stage as a dancer in FAME and as the lead role of sell-out show Shhh… the Musical down in the Fringe in Edinburgh. Was good to be performing again!!
So, to round off a great year I am looking forward to spending Christmas with family, hopefully catching up with old friends, and enjoying the snow….whenever it comes….up in the hills.
I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a magical New Year!!
I promise next post will be less reflective, and far more witty 🙂
