Here for public viewing and amusement is my 'Ta Da' List for 2006!
Got through the immigration medical including blood test which I was absolutely terrified of!
Tried white water rafting for the first time (and looking forward to a higher grade river next time!)
Got New Zealand permanent residency (thanks Graeme!)
Bought a house
Bought furniture for new house
Started a course on Freelance Journalism (which is ongoing and I hope to have completed by end of Feb 07)
Started working permanently at Recruitment Plus
Moved into house
Got a dog (and I love him even though he is a complete and utter nuisance!)
Learnt to scrapbook
Gained my New Zealand Drivers license (by completing a scratch card theory test!)
Bought a kick-ass ‘proper’ BBQ
Made lots of friends
Completed Basic Dog Obedience lessons with the mutt!
Had Mum here to visit
Had a housewarming/birthday./Mum’s here BBQ celebration ~ in the rain!
Zorbed (it was so much fun!)
Luged (again, lots of fun!)
Lost 6kg (more next year!)
Tried Go-Karting (which was painful and I had bad bruises to prove it – they are just disappearing now! But I’m willing to give it another shot once the painful memories fade away!)
Had a Christmas BBQ ~ in the rain (can you see a recurring theme here?!)
Visited South Island
Went on the Inter-Islander ferry
Swam with the dolphins (and I can’t wait to do it again now I have worked out how to snorkel!)
Learnt to snorkel (but no diving yet!)
Wrote this list and realized that I have achieved a lot this year and am quite content with the way life is panning out in most areas!
So there you have it - I have also written some goals for 2007 which I may share if I don't have anything better to talk about next time!
Does anyone else do crazy stuff like this or is it just me?!
