Janine, 22, Northern Ireland.

Y'know, when you sit down and really think about it... life's pretty good.

I'm documenting a year in my life, with (at least) one blog post per day.

DFTBA & #letlovein.

YouTube | Twitter

So we made it. 

It’s Dec 31. Well it’s technically Jan 1, but we’ll overlook it. 

I can’t believe it’s been a year since I started blogging every day on this blog. It seems like forever ago, but it doesn’t seem like any time at all. 

There’s no point in me doing a recap post of 2012, because it’s all here. That’s the beauty of this. I have the whole year documented here now to look back over and appreciate. And this year on a certain day, I can check back to see what I was doing/feeling a year ago. 

And that’s the best feeling ever.

I don’t know what I’m going to do with this blog now. If I’ll keep using it as a personal or if I’ll make it private and use it as an archive. I don’t know.

But I’m done with the post a day thing. 

2012 has been great. Goodbye for now :)

i went to ballymena this morning (after i slept in because i’m a cotton headed ninny muggins who forgot to set their alarm) and did the rest of my christmas shopping, then when i came home i spent the rest of the day/night wrapping them and skyping with andrea!!

it’s been a good day! 

it’s also my last day off until christmas day!!! ahhhh!!! christmas is so close!!!

i got my first christmas presents today!!!

after work (average, non eventful) jodie and i went to mcdonalds to meet the boyd’s and we had dinner, and then we went to the boyd household and exchanged christmas gifts and it was so much fun!!!!

the boyd’s got me a bath bomb set, a terry’s chocolate orange and then this little ornament for the christmas tree that says janodie on it and jodie got one too and it’s AMAZING!!!

jodie was in her element because she got to hold and play with eli all night and i was in my element because i got to drink tea out of a glee mug while watching harry potter 

today was perfect

i had a good day in work today, we got a huge delivery and i got a lot of it cleared so i felt really good about myself at the end of the day!

i was meant to be going to becca and david’s tonight with jodie, but the protests meant we couldn’t get there and jodie got stuck right in the middle of one 

so we’re going tomorrow night instead
