End of the New Year Hodgepodge

Whew! Here it goes...my last hodgepodge of 2015! Granted I didn't partake a huge amount but the times I have, have been fun to do. So if you want to take part, answer the questions below and link back here.

So here goes...

1) Share a favourite moment or memory from the week of Christmas.

Looking back I have quite a few but the one that really stands out was Christmas Eve. I have not really had a festive mojo this year and I even said to my housemate on Christmas Eve morning that I did not feel christmassy in the slightest. Then I got this message from one of the ward sisters I work with...and I just felt such JOY! I had a very poorly patient on 23/12/15 and my gut told that he needed urgent care fast.


In that moment I was so excited to celebrate Christmas with my family and friends. It just made me realise that I didn't need to bake cookies, decorate my house or listen to carols to get festive. Just knowing I could have saved a life this Christmas...made everything so insignificant.

2) If someone wrote a book about your life based on the past year, what genre would it fit under? what would the title be?

I think it would fall under some sort of Bridget Jones-esque theme. I've dated idiots, lost my way, been emotional, had fun times, met an amazing guy and questioned 'what's the point?' on so many occasions. So maybe title it 'Bridget Jone's Little Sister.'

3) What made you feel patriotic this year?

Ooo good question! I think the UK's response to the refugee crisis and the terrorist attacks in Morocco and Paris was touching. At the end of the day we are all human and we want to be there for others.

4) What experience from this past year would you like to do all over again?


This.


5) What song lyric sums up or is a reflection of your 2015?

Jess Glynne - 'Don't be so hard on yourself.' This is my favourite song of 2015 but probably because I resonate with the lyrics so much. I have tried so hard this year to be kinder on myself and cut myself some slack.

6) On a scale of 1-10 how would you rate your 2015? Why?

I would say a 7! I definitely had more good moments than bad this year but a few events has set the number back.

7) What part of the upcoming year are you most excited about?

Completing my course and finally becoming a Health Visitor in September.

8) Insert your own random thought here.

I just want to say to everyone have a wonderful end to 2015 and a joyous start to 2016! Happy new year.

Congrats on saving a life. That must be an awesome feeling.

I'm not familiar with that song, but I love the title. It's something I need to remember.

Happy New Year!!
