2014 Quiz!

2012 and 2013

1. What did you do in 2014 that you'd never done before?
I got tattooed! Four times!

2. Did you keep your new years' resolutions, and will you make more for next year?
I didn't really make any other than to make an effort to look after my skin a bit more which I definitely did. Not that it's made the slightest bit of difference! This year I resolve to stop comparing myself to other people and to spend more quality time with Mr D. I want to make a list of things I physically want to do rather than resolutions which I will put in a different post.

3. Did anyone close to you give birth?

We had two babies born in our group of friends this year! Both beautiful, healthy, happy girls who I am completely in love with.

4. Did anyone close to you die?
No, thankfully.

5. What countries did you visit?
The Netherlands with my tiny best friend to visit our tall best friend and her beardy husband. 

6. What would you like to have in 2015 that you lacked in 2014?

The same thing I wanted last year; a non-leaky ceiling! And for the brain stability I've gained to continue.

7. What dates from 2015 will remain etched upon your memory, and why?

Not exact dates but mid-June when my beloved tiny best friend left for Canada which broke my heart a little bit.
My weekend spent in an Amsterdam garden drinking wines, eating crisps and singing in the sunshine (and filming it) with three of my favourite people.
My husband's birthday. We had a really simple weekend, we went and stayed in a hotel, went for a fancy dinner and had cocktails.

8. What was your biggest achievement of the year?
Starting university, sticking it out when it got taxing and generally making it through the first half of the year.

9. What was your biggest failure?
I can honestly say I don't regret anything or feel like I've failed at anything this year. Unpleasant things have happened but none of them were in my control. 

10. Did you suffer illness or injury?
Serious bad mentals.

11. What was the best thing you bought?
My new floors. I  am officially a grown up.

12. Whose behaviour merited celebration?
As always my two fabulous best girls, Mr D and my mama. I can say hand on heart that if it weren't for all four of them I would not be here. It's a bold statement and I normally cringe when people say it but it's absolutely true,

13. Where did most of your money go?
On the house, and Modcloth.

14. What songs will always remind you of 2014?

Bears Den - Agape
Sam Smith - Stay With Me 

15. What do you wish you'd done more of?
Spending quality time with my hairy husband.

16. What do you wish you'd done less of?

Comparing myself to other people.

17. How did you spend Christmas?
I loved this Christmas. My tall best friend and her beardy husband came to stay with us for a few days before Christmas which was so, so lovely, I really loved having them here. Our village do a carol service on the square with fireworks on Christmas Eve every year (which always get me right in the feels) so after we went to that we had some people over for party food, cheesy music and boozes. We spent Christmas Day with my husband's family and then spend Boxing Day and the few days after with mine. It was all pretty wonderful. Except the tummy bug Mr D and I got, that was pretty grim!

18. Did you fall in love in 2014?
Yes, with our new fur baby, Opie. 

19. What was your favourite TV program?

Sons of Anarchy, The Fall, AHS: Freak Show aaaand Eastenders. I've really loved Eastenders this year and I'm not ashamed at all.  

20. What was the best book you read?
Cupcakes and Kalashnikovs. 

21. What was your greatest musical discovery?
Bears Den. 

22. What did you want and get?

To come out of my bad brain patch and get a bit more stability finally.

23. What did you want and not get?

A ceiling that doesn't leak. 

24. What was your favourite film of this year?
Interstellar, without a flippin' doubt. Incredible film!

25. What did you do on your birthday, and how old were you?
I was 27 but I cannot for the life of me recall my birthday at all. 

26. What one thing would have made your year immeasurably more satisfying?
Obviously better mental health. And perhaps giving in and hiring a cleaner earlier than I did because it has taken so much pressure off! 

27. What kept you sane?
Netflix, cinnamon buns and my Hoff botherers.

28. Which celebrity/public figure did you fancy the most?
Jamie Dornan, especially in The Fall. It was a new experience fancying a serial killer.

29. Who did you miss?

As always, my Amsterdam dwelling Victoria but now my Canada dwelling, Sinead too.
30. What does 2015 hold for you?

A new sofa, a holiday or two and a LOT of studying!

This was a little difficult to do because my recollection of the first six months of the year are very patchy. It sounds a bit scary but it's one of the things about brains I'm rather fond of! Mine has a wonderful habit of protecting me by not allowing me to remember the traumatic times until I'm absolutely ready to process them. Thanks, brain! 

I love doing these quizzes at the end of every year. I first started doing them about ten years ago on my LiveJournal so I have a good collection now!
