Christmas has flown!

Christmas has certainly flown by this year, in fact the entire year has! It's been a funny old year and I have worked none stop! At the beginning of the year I set myself a series of goals that I wanted to achieve in 2009 and those were to network more, get my work exhibited, get more commissions, get my work published, sell my work through various galleries etc. well I can certainly say that I have achieved all these things and more!

Its been a year of ups and downs both personally and professionally. I am still in absolute agony everyday and have had that many tests with a further two more hospital appointments in Jan and Feb. I have decided in the New Year to take things slower and not get caught up in the 'Race' so to speak. I really need to put my health first as it is important for my children and for Andrew. I have had some scary health moments during the year, and it really has made me think that I have been doing far too much. Somehow I have to find a balance and hopefully I will be able to do that in the New Year.
