2016 has been such a year!
Not bad, but nothing to report as well!
(That's why I know 2017 is going to be much better! It has to be, right?)
This meme is doing the rounds, grabbed from Nafisa's blog. (Thanks Tanya (Dear Max and Rebecca) for reminding us!)
1. What did you do in 2016 that you’d never done before?
Nothing! I should definitely address this issue! (Note to self!)
2. Did you keep your new years’ resolutions, and will you make more for next year?
No, I do not do New Year's resolutions any more, but I got up on the 2nd of January this year and decided that I am a vegetarian. I still am!
3. How will you be spending New Year’s Eve?
I do not like being at home this time of the year! I even tried unsuccessfully last night to book us two nights through Lekkeslaap and Airbnb. Of course it did not work because everything is fully booked. I am very disappointed that you can't search for places that are still available. You have to apply for each and every place on the sites! (Thumbs down from me!)
But Hubby organised a braai with friends at home and New Year's Eve does not seem so bleak any more! We also went to the Wonder Caves at Kromdraai today, and it was a great outing! (Definitely something to put on the to-do-list with the family!)
4. Did anyone close to you die?
No! Thank you, Universe!
5. What countries did you visit?
6. What would you like to have in 2017 that you lacked in 2016?
I do not have anything lacking in my life!
7. What date from 2016 will remain etched upon your memory, and why?
No, can't think of anything! That's why I call it a "meh" year!

I nearly forgot! I got a certificate for an Online Social Media short course through UCT.
9. What was your biggest failure?
? (That's not so bad!)
10. Did you suffer illness or injury?
11. What was the best thing you bought?

Necessities and school! A new car! (Also a necessity!)

My family! Not taking everything too serious!
23. Who did you miss?
We miss the family who are overseas, especially with family get-togethers!
