    Highlights

    Moving into our new home after a 2 year process of designing and building it.

    Watching DD turn into such a little girl.

    Watching DS turn from a baby into an active and very cheeky toddler

    Going back to work for the pure fact I can't be a full time SAHM.

    Realising life is too short to stay in a thankless job so applying to study Interior Decoration. Something I should have done years ago!

    Lowlights

    Struggling every day with this parenting business.

    Still not knowing if I have depression, anxiety or both

    Being screwed over at work after 6 years of loyal service

    Watching my mum struggle in an unhappy marriage

    Watching DH going to work and coming home miserable because of his job and feeling guilty as he's only working at such a high level and in a really stressful job to make our mortgage repayments.

    Unable to cope with the demands of 2 children, wondering why the hell do I find it so difficult when there's people with 3, 4, 5 + kids. Why can't I be as good at it or love it as much.

    Disappointed with how I just can't connect with DD. She pushes my buttons so easily and I feel like she hates me most of the time as I have absolutely zero patience with her.

    Highlights:
    - finishing the house we'd been working on for 8 years & selling it for more than we wanted
    - buying a new house that was bigger than we thought we could afford
    - DH starting his own business & making a great start so far
    - being surprised with a BFP before we were about to start TTC, and DD2 arriving with no hassles
    - DD1 growing into an amazingly clever little creature who makes me laugh every single day

    Lowlights:
    - DD1 figuring out she has her own free will. She's wonderful, but has tested me & my ideals about parenting a few times!
    - DH's new business meaning he didn't have any time off when DD2 was born, and being left to struggle on my own from the beginning. Still trying to find my feet a little.

    Definitely a winner of a year for me, can't believe my luck!
