Very cold out but I had a birthday :)
Had me working, going to the gym, seeing K and going to an occasional gig.
I also celebrated a year of Kel and I in official togetherness :)
Got wet in Sweden and hot in the UK.
Got a medical problem that had me in hospital for a day.
Spent money but also managed to save quite a bit.
Still managed to watch and listen to plenty of things.

I’ve still got to put things onto my Sony Walkman NWZ-E455 16GB MP3 Player (Black) and I’ve only worn my winter coat and leather jacket a few times. The rabbits mainly bring joy to Kel, but I guess I’ve grown accustomed to them on occasions.
It was also good to get something back from all these years of paying into the NHS but the winner is half a bed because nothing beats a good night’s sleep.
and of course the late entry of the ENGAGEMENT RING :)
2011 brings change (again).
