Goodbye 2014

This last year has been very mixed as usual. I have been poorly for so long (coming up to 12 years) that it's difficult not to dwell on the fact that it's another year gone & you're no better bla bla bla. This year I feel like 2015 is just a bunch of numbers & I am not going to start going on about what I expect or hope from it as it never seems to happen!

So many people I know have had such a lot of awful stuff happen this year & it hurts that I can't do anything about it. Suffering with bad health is another thing that you can't do anything about for anyone but given half a chance you would make it go away. However, despite that, there has been positive stuff happen too. Friends old & new have helped make it better with lots of laughter & support.

Something nice that I started on 1st January 2014 was a Memory Jar.  My daughter decorated it & the intention was to write down things that made me smile & fold them up, put them in the jar & not read them until New Year's Eve.

So here we are on 31st December 2014 & I did indeed keep up with the jar! I didn't always remember to write stuff down but it's a good job I didn't as it was full! I sat with my daughter today & she opened them & passed them to me to read. So many lovely memories & things I had forgotten all about. Small things that made me smile. Things my daughter said that made me laugh. Achievements, no matter how small, went in the jar. Places we went. Meeting new friends. Of course meeting Keith Lemon was up there with the highlights!

I am going to be doing a new jar for 2015. When you look back over the year & all you can remember is being poorly or having bad stuff happen, then it's lovely thinking of all the things that made you smile.

Happy new year!

ME Mummy A


  1. Hi!
    I've started a memory box for the very first time. Siam gave me the idea and I think its lovely bc sometimes you just think in the awful things in your life due to the illness.
    I wish you have tons of papers with happy memories this year! :)

    1. Hiya sorry only just replying! I hope you do too..they really are such lovely things to do :) xx
