Another list I make at the end of the year is to review the events of the past 12 months and hopefully learn from it. (Give a writer a chance to write and well, sometimes you get lists!)
This list in particular is like a summary of my year – when reading my posts/diary entries becomes too much (even for me!), this is a good way to remind myself of what has been.
2005 was a good year for a lot of us personally (atleast people I know). Hope the good luck spreads to everybody else too!
Here’s to 12 glorious months of 2006!
2005 in Retrospect
January – Got married, left home, moved countries.
February – braved the winter, tasted snow, moved houses.

May -Trip to Wales.
June – Completed the beginners course, stayed on. Started working with an NGO. Completed the Jubilee Run with over 100 other women runners. Went for the GOMECO reunion with Mr R.
July – The Proms begin. Saw Ravi & Anoushka Shanker, Zubin Mehta and Bobby McFerrin perform besides a dozen others. London Bombings – dealt with suspicious looks from fellow passengers on tube trains and London buses. Could not blame them for generalising, for I felt the same way.
