It doesn't need to be the start of a new year to make you sit back and reflect on the past, but you always fall into it, or at least I do. My reflections tell me that on the whole 2013 was a fairly good one for me. It wasn't so good for a few close friends and family, but they have all come out the other side and fingers crossed 2014 will bring better health to those who need it.
I have many happy memories of 2013, good laughs with old friends, adventures with new friends, physical challenges achieved, and so much more.
What does this new, even numbered year hold in store, hopefully the same and more. I have no specific plans but I know I want to make more memories with a certain gentleman who makes me smile. I want time with my friends. I want to cycle more miles. I want to run more miles, and generally be content and happy.
Not too much to ask really!
Life is what you make it so live it and love it. I'm going to try.
I wish for more mountain biking trails.
I wish for blue skies and sunshine.
