2010 in review...

So another year has passed and it is time to reflect on the best of 2010. The standout things for the year for Jason and I were:

Family is incredibly important to both Jason and I, some of the highlights for 2010 include:
  1. falling pregnant with our first child, due May 2011;
  2. Celebrating our 6 year wedding anniversary in August;
  3. seeing Jason's family a number of times (NZ in March and Perth in September and December);
  4. seeing my extended family (Rotorua Tickelpenny's) in NZ in March;
  5. Being visited by Jane and Quentin in December; and
  6. Spending Christmas and New Years with my family (a blog post to come on this).
Friends: Just like family, our friends are also really important to us:
  1. Visiting a number of friends in NZ in March (Megan; Lawrence, Nicci and James; and Blossom and Kate);
  2. Celebrating with Sam and Marnie at their wedding in March;
  3. Celebrating with Natalie and Deano at their wedding in April; and
  4. Celebrating with Melanie and Michael at the engagement party in October.
Travel and adventures:
  1. I had two work trips, one in Melbourne and the other in Singapore;
  2. we spent 3 weeks in New Zealand, spending most of our time in Taupo, but visited Orakei Korako and Waitomo Caves;
  3. I ran a 59.8km epic ultra marathon; and
  4. We checked out some of WA's local sights: the thrombolites, New Norcia, the Stirling ranges and the Pinnacles.
Arts and culture:
  1. I tried my hand at glass bead making;
  2. we enjoyed Drum Tao, the Japanese drum show at the Perth Concert Hall;
  3. we enjoyed Crowded House at Sandalford Estate; and
  4. we rocked with 60,000 other fans at U2.
  1. Jason bought a new car, "Black Betty".
So when looking back, although it was a quieter year than usual for us we have still done a lot, seen a lot and enjoyed life with our family and friends. We are really looking forward to 2011 with a lot of changes in store for us.
