In January, I added up how much we'd saved by growing food in our small city garden (I'll give you a clue - it wasn't very much). We spent a weekend hibernating in our friend's cottage in the Yorkshire Dales, and the second instalment of my blog book arrived (the third is now here - more on this soon!)
In March, I sat still for a while, got all misty-eyed about growing food and communities, and learned to plaster.
In August, we sneaked away on holiday.
In September, in an attempt to live fearlessly, we started to learn German. Needless to say, we soon gave up, but we will rekindle our enthusiasm ready for a visit to friends this year. In our house-packing-up frenzy, the garden got rather neglected, but nevertheless managed to put on a good floral show.
In November I was still running, preparing for another half marathon and noticing as things turned ever more autumnal.
I lost my blogging enthusiasm for a while (again), but regained it slightly in December after my final day at my old job. Just before Christmas, we spent a night at the seaside in Scarborough - a recent tradition which I'm very much enjoying.
Overall, in comparison to previous years, 2015 felt a little nondescript. I've felt unsettled in a house full of boxes, unwilling to start a new craft project, not wanting to do much in the garden. I've run a couple of races, but nothing too big that required (much) training. The last quarter of the year dragged a lot while I was working my notice, and I lost enthusiasm for many things.
I've felt a lot like I was looking forwards, towards our new house, my new job, change in general. I'm a big fan of change - I like routine and familiarity, but I feel refreshed after a change. I feel like too much of 2015 was spent waiting, and I'm not known for my patience.
When I thought about 2015 at the start of the year, I didn't want to set any goals, any themes. I pondered that we might move house, but we never quite got round to that. 2015 felt unfocused, wavering somehow.
In contrast, 2016 will be a year of action and change. I'm a week into my new job, and today we had an estate agent round to value our house. Already things are moving on. I'm excited.
What are you looking forward to in 2016?
