On the last day of the year

On paper, it’s been a very fruitful 2018. I hit my target weight and have run a lot of races (including two half marathons) and have got more writing done this year than I’ve ever managed before, partly due to the daily writing habit that this blog has encouraged. My business also had another good year of growth.

Unfortunately, my mental health has seriously deteriorated this year, and is now probably at its worst since I was in my late teens. I don’t talk about it much on here but I have really been struggling recently. As such, I have very mixed feelings about the last year.

I hope 2019 will be less ambivalent. For me, and for everyone else.

Now I’m off to go eat as many slices as possible of Dad’s famous Hogmanay pizza. I’ll be back tomorrow to celebrate this blog’s first birthday!
