The good, the bad & the ugly
Ok, I know we've got a few more weeks left of the year but I thought I'd get a thread started now for everyone to give their highs & lows of 2011 & what everyone's wishes are for 2011.
Wonderful holiday in the Dominican Republic in February.
Getting to fulfill my dream of running the London Marathon.
Buying my first house with my boyfriend & ending up with a house that was well past our expectations of what we could get.
At the weekend, me & my bf will collecting our 8 week old Labrador puppy. We've want a dog for ages & we're finally in a position to get one.
I have been extremely blessed this year & haven't had any real lows. A bit of stress with buying a house & the MIL staying for 2 weeks but that's as bad as it got. I know not everyone has been that lucky & for that I don't take any of my good fortune for granted.
My wishes for 2011 are that my loved ones have good health & those affected by the our bad ecomony get a break.
Dog sleding in Canada (even if the dogs did destroy my knees)

Getting our beautiful Alfa Brera
Making Christmas hampers (well, at the moment it's a high, I guess I need to wait for feed-back post Christmas day)
Work and colleagues are beyond irritating
Asthma getting more and more out of control.
Old family friend being diagnosed with rare and aggresive form of lung cancer.
And +1 for your wishes for 2011 of course.
