It’s the 29th of December, four days after the craziness of Christmas celebrations! & Boxing Day – I didn’t go do the mad sales hunting out there, fuck that! In fact, I haven’t left the house all day. After being struck with a food coma due to over-eating, not like a bossbitch, but instead – like a true pig. Ha! I had no regrets at the time…but my tummy suggests otherwise now and is out for revenge!
Putting that aside, as we slowly start winding right down & begin thinking about the new year coming quicker than we realise, I was sitting here just pondering about “yaknow, stuff” & out of nowhere, I’m like, “I’m going to write a Dear 2016 letter & put it inside, Put-it-in-my-hole” haha that sounds a bit naughty, but I promise it’s not! And then as I started typing, I decided, - “ohh, I’ll probably turn it into a blog post as well” ..”I am going to turn this into a post!” I can’t help myself, okay!
Wait! …let me explain what “Put-it-in-my-hole” is first! SO. Back in 2013 I wanted to make a time capsule type of thing since it was our first house and I just wanted to create memories with loved ones & friends etc. I ended up with an empty protein powder container, diy’d it a little, made a hole for whatever was going to be getting put inside the capsule & that’s where we got the name from! This bad boy hasn’t been opened for 3yrs (only because no one can get the lid off due to my “bright” idea to glue it), and I don’t intend on opening it until we move into our own home!
So, that’s that!
Yes, I wrote resolutions at the end of 2015 for the new year of 2016 – FAILED though, Haha! & tbh, I don’t even remember the list haha! I definitely know that weight-loss was on it (weight loss is always on the fucking reso. list) but if anything, I’ve probably gained haha dammit! But the rest…. is left forgotten lol
I couldn’t wait to leave 2015, that was a hunk of shit year for me! I had to endure a few things that caught me off guard! Definitely a learning curb. & tbh, it definitely left me scarred going into this year.
However, this year has been the year of the “celebrity death plague” – a fuckload of my childhood celebs left us. As well as another year filled with bloodshed due to maliciousness, hatred and all kinds of fucking evil, awful shit around our world!
OH! & how could I forget, it’s also been the year for all kinds of deadly illnesses breaking out – along with SO MUCH political drama, that I, tbh, couldn’t be bothered keeping up with. IMO; 5yr old children should run the world! At least it would consist of imagination, rainbows, butterflies, candy floss and copious amounts of lollies & playgrounds! Ohhhh the innocence of it all.
We can’t forget the natural disasters that struck our countries in one way or another either. & With all of that said, I believe this year truly has been about, “The Survival of 2016”.
Can we touch on me now? I think we should, ha!

It’s definitely been the year of trials and tribulations for me and mine. It wasn’t all a shitfest. Especially now that I’ve typed it all down and I can see that, this year, has actually been OKAY. & I’m OK with that.
How boring would things be without the trials, challenges & shitfests!? Wifey has taught me though; - there is always a silver lining for everything, if not everything then most things. & I feel like she’s right! & I’m pretty sure, we can all genuinely agree that, even in our crappiest 2016 moments, we have all learnt whatever life lessons were needed in those times and managed to find that silver lining that’s been spoken of.
I believe, I found mine & I am fucking coming out on top at the end of this year and I am ready to tackle 2017, grab it by the balls & show it who its’ daddy gon’ be! Ha ha!
Say goodbye to this year but take with you, all that you’ve learnt. -WATCH THIS BLOG LIFE IN 2017 SHINEEEEE GIRL!!!
Stay happy, Keep smiling! XX
