Had a great year. I became a freelancer just about a year ago, which was scary, but my full-time job was driving me nuts and the schedule prevented me having any kind of life outside work. Now I'm happy to say I've hardly missed my weekly dance class all year (could rarely make it with my old job), I'm going to Scotland again in a couple of weeks, and have had enough work to pay the bills and save up for my trip. And buy myself occasional (well, maybe frequent) treats on eBay too... scented soap, sunglasses, purses, orthotic shoes , skirts for dancing.

I live by myself, and recently I've noticed that I often don't turn on the TV for a week at a time. I decided that's a good thing.
