January 2011: Floods.
February: Clean-up from floods, plus:
And we found termite damage. Which meant that: (with HUGE thanks to Mum and Dad for their generous help)
Also new gutters, new water tank, repairs to the solar hot water, new ceilings in two rooms…
And we had the red bellied black snake near the house *shudder*
I also did some online art classes; caught some variety of cold or flu every time we went to the doctors, went to the psychologist and psychiatrist and group therapy, had facet joint injections in my spine but then found out I have neuropathic pain (which needs different treatment), and read 174 books (not counting most of the cookbooks and picture books I read and a few that weren’t already in the Shelfari system that I couldn’t be bothered adding.)
Our region turned off the analogue TV signal at the start of December. We bought a new DVD player somewhere around May but haven’t plugged it in yet (!) so I haven’t watched any DVDs for most of the year. I didn’t go to the movies at all. I didn’t sew anything.
Plans for 2012: get the sewing room and front room cleared out and operational; more therapy; walking as much as I can; eating less processed food (and cutting out bought sweets altogether – far better to bake things and know exactly what’s gone into them); and possibly – maybe – enrolling in a uni course (major in creative writing with a minor in history, or possible the other way around.)
