Dec. 30th, 2012 12:12 pm 2013 Meme - 20 good things about 2012, 13 things to look forward to in 2013

20 good things about 2012:
  1. My wonderful partners, friends and family,  who bring so much joy to my life.
  2. Teaching Physics/Science/Maths/English - really rewarding work.
  3. Being a Happiness Coach - more really rewarding work.
  4. Running a local group for the charity “Action for Happiness”, and facilitating the "Manchester Coaching Circle".
  5. The electric car being on the road at last.
  6. Managing to acquire gluten-free haggis and give Stuart a 'proper' Burns night - he hadn't had haggis for about 10 years!
  7. Having a lovely time at QED con with John
  8. Having my Dad to stay, and see the new house, over Easter
  9. Running my first "Happiness Workshop" in Chorlton, and it going really well.
  10. Walking 9 miles for the first time in over 10 years whilst raising money for Charity.
  11. Tim's bladder cancer being removed and him getting the all clear (will have annual check-ups)
  12. Setting up Manchester Armchair Philosophers, and it being a huge success.
  13. Starting my Coaching Supervision diploma - loving the course, learning lots.
  14. Doing lovely things for my birthday - the grand picnic in Longford Park was awesome!
  15. Going on an Autumn holiday with Tim to a converted mill at Chipping village, near Longridge (Lancashire)
  16. Dad's kidney (with gigantic cancerous tumour attached) being removed.  And after a lengthy recovery period, although he will possibly need further drugs, he is loads better.  It had been a very worrying few months. So relieved!
  17. Being Santa's helper at the Chorlton Christmas lights switch-on
  18. My cousin Tim having a baby (my first cousin once removed?) Abigail, born in December.
  19. Two lovely Christmas parties at my house: The first for friends, including singing carols round the (electric) piano.  And the second, inviting the whole of my street to a Christmas gathering, and getting to know some of the neighbours properly.
  20. A relaxing and happy first Christmas in Chorlton-cum-hardy, and John being there too.
13 things I look forward to in 2013:
  1. Special times with partners, friends and family throughout the year.
  2. Getting involved with my local community via continuing work for the “Action for Happiness” charity, the Manchester Armchair Philosophers, and also getting more involved with Chorlton Civic Society.
  3. Continuing to walk more (as soon as the weather warms up).
  4. Dinner somewhere nice with Tim to celebrate being together for 9 years.
  5. Getting married at the Manchester University Museum, under a T-Rex skeleton, on February 23rd, and the honeymoon.
  6. Doing something nice with John to celebrate being together for 2 years on March 6th.
  7. Going to QED Con with John in April (for his birthday).
  8. Doing something nice for Stuart for his birthday in May (but I can't say what, as I haven't told him yet).
  9. Completing my NLP Coaching Diploma and Coaching Supervision Diploma, both in June.
  10. Going to Dad's Summer Party, on Sunday 14th July.
  11. Celebrating my 40th birthday (and Dad's 70th) - over the August bank holiday weekend (24th - 26th August) - will probably be a camping / B&B-ing event - please keep the date free :-)
  12. September: Going to the Science Festival (an annual event organised by the British Science Association) at the University of Newcastle.
  13. Getting some of the house re-decorated - can't kid myself for much longer that it's OK as we have only just moved in!
So what would your 20 and 13 things be?
