Things that didn't happen in 2010

 Lots of bad (and a few good) things didn't happen in 2010.  Here are some of them:


Why I still don't understand 'user-friendly' language.

I didn't get fit and healthy.  I blame it all on the white stuff that fell from the sky in January and spoilt all my good New Year resolutions.


In which Angel failed to get an 'A' in PE yet again...not for want of trying!


I'm still not sure how to help Smiley be a teenager.


Hotels did not welcome the Ash Cloud victims with tea and sympathy.

An angry aspie boy did not stop us heading across the Irish Sea.


I did not go naked.

CD did not behave...again.


CD did not object to leaving mainstream school and moving to an Asperger Outreach Unit.

I failed to avoid another birthday.


Nothing bad happened to Angel at her first music festival.

My house move wasn't cancelled.


Angel did not get lost in France, robbed, sunburnt or any of the other million and one terrible things that I imagined during the two weeks that she was on holidays attended French College.

Smiley failed to resist the lure of Banoffee Pie - she wasn't the only one!


Angel finally stopped being my little girl.

CD did not complain about his new school.


CD did not object to leaving the house to go on an outing.

I didn't stop blogging after reaching my first blogaversary.


I did not smile on TV.

The Smileymobile stopped being broken (fingers crossed for 2011).


The snow did not prevent us going to Wales to see my family.

CD did not have a lie in on Christmas Morning.

I didn't get that job, but maybe it's just as well.

Roll on 2011 and let's hope lots of bad things don't happen next year as well :)


  1. I blame January's snow for a lot too!
    I wish you and your family lots of Happy Times in 2011. Happy New Year and thank you so much for your support. XX

  2. hehehe, love the October one 'I didn't stop blogging..........' I remember most of these and can't believe you have blogged all of that in a year, where did that time go?? Happy New Year to you and the gang :) Jen

  3. Happy Happy New Year!! I do hope that you have many more good things happen to you and yours this year. :) I desperately need a recipe for Banofee pie..have looked and looked..the picture you had with that post still haunts me...;0

  4. Wish I could do a summary like that, and I love the snow falling over the screen. As for teenagers, we're moving that way ourselves.

  5. Hey...nice round up! A really good way to sum up your year and it seems that most things happened for the best;-)

    I too am glad you didn't stop blogging!

    Happy new year to all at the house of Blue Sky :-)

    xx Jazzy

  6. Ah, we must take the good with the bad and with that the things that didn't happen along with the things that did. I hope that 2011 proves to be a winner for you and the family because you deserve it!

  7. Amen to that and may 2011 be kind to you and yours.

  8. @chic mama - wishing you and your children the very best in 2011
