I'm waiting for my husband to get back from his walk and then we'll launch into our (now annual) New Year's Eve tradition - a movie marathon with Thai take out and of course champagne.
While I wait I am reflecting on the year. I've been thinking about all I've experienced in 2010 and the lessons and memories which have made their mark.
In no particular order...
