Prompt: One Word. Encapsulate the year 2010 in one word. Explain why you’re choosing that word. Now, imagine it’s one year from today, what would you like the word to be that captures 2011 for you?

So 1 word for this year….
Challenge
This is the year when I left Scotland for a Kiwi Adventure not knowing what lay ahead. We hadn’t decided how permanent the transition was, I had a 2 year sabbatical so had plenty of time to decide. We had to find our way, alone on the other side of the world. It was a good challenge. We’ve succeeded in stretching our boundaries and setting new ones.
I found work on my own in a foreign system. I found us a cute cottage with an awe-inspiring view. I walked a half marathon in 3hrs 5. I’ve run 5k several times. I’m losing weight successfully for the first time in years. I’ve met lots of good people. I’ve worked out what my highest priority is for this point in my life which leads me on to 2011..
Nest.
I want to create a safe, warm place for my family. I want to feel stable and be able to relax and enjoy my family. I want a home.
