I thought I did this every year but apparently not, unless I was very bad at tagging!

1.What did you do in 2013 that you'd never done before?
Went on a holiday just for fun! Probably other stuff but that'll do.

2. Did you keep your new years' resolutions, and will you make more for next year?
I don't really do resolutions but my plan was to give a chunk of energy and money to trying to get better. Which I did, to no real effect! So, giving up on that for a while. My plan for the next little while is (a) FIND A FRICKING HOUSE (b)Be more social (c)Look into paid or volunteer work.

3. Did anyone close to you give birth?
Yes! My friend Vanessa! CUTEST BABY OMG.

4. Did anyone close to you die?
Yes, my granddad :(

5. What countries did you visit?
Just Australia, but I did go over to Melbourne.

6. What would you like to have in 2014 that you lacked in 2013?
Lol. Health. A HOUSE.

7. What dates from 2013 will remain etched upon your memory, and why?
My granddad dying for obvious reasons. The DISASTER that was moving out of our old place.

8. What was your biggest achievement of the year?
Hmmmm...I'm not sure! Finishing SOON I guess?

9. What was your biggest failure?
GETTING. A. HOUSE.

10. Did you suffer illness or injury?
No more than usual.

11. What was the best thing you bought?
Spare wheelchair charger? It makes me disproportionately happy to know it's there.

12. Whose behavior merited celebration?
Lily, for giving us a place to stay!

13. Whose behavior made you appalled and depressed?
The one good side of all this house drama is it distracting me from the government :(

14. Where did most of your money go?
Moving, health, travel.

15. What did you get really, really, really excited about?
The first answer that comes to mind is MINECRAFT lol.

16. What songs will always remind you of 2013?
All the songs Lily plays when she's exercising :)

17. Compared to this time last year, are you:
a) happier or sadder? ...about the same?
b) thinner or fatter? Maybe a little fatter?
c) richer or poorer? Richer, though of course that's all saving for THE FUTURE HOUSE

18. What do you wish you'd done more of?
I took this meme from bardiegrub, who had "spent more time with friends" here and that'll do. Wish I'd visited grandad AT ALL in the year before he died.

19. What do you wish you'd done less of?
Stressing. I don't actually regret the money effectively wasted on health stuff since you don't know it won't work until you try.

Went to my in laws. It was nice! Got to say hello to Kira :)

They aren't talking to me."
