New beginnings - part 3

Well it's only 2 days until my first wedding anniversary and we will both be taking 2 days off work to celebrate.  Since I met my husband I have started doing so many things that I had either never done before or had a go at and never carried on.  Things like:
  • waterskiing (I always hated anything that involved water)
  • snow skiing (why pay to go and freeze your ass off when you can do it at home for free?)
  • cycling (I even did the 2009 Pedal for Scotland event and cycled 51 miles from Glasgow to Edinburgh)
  • travelling (this I did do a little before when I could afford it)
  • breaking bones (3 metatarsal fractures as a result of my first and only attempt to do mountain biking)
  • making jewellery (saving costs for the wedding started it off but I really enjoy it)
  • becoming a mother-in-law (now that was a big surprise)
  • blogging ( I guess I have to keep up with the times)

Since I first met him 6 years ago my husband has always been there to give me the support and encouragement I needed to try out new things.  I only cast up my broken foot to him occasionally.  That was the result of me believing him when he told me I could handle mountain biking.  Anyway, I survived and was able to take part in the Pedal for Scotland event a year later than planned.

I'm looking forward to trying even more new things as our life together progresses and no doubt I will share with you on here.
