1. What did you do in 2011 that you'd never done before?
Erm, lived in Greenwich. Not much new this year. Urgh I'm boring.

2. Did you keep your new years' resolutions, and will you make more for next year?

No and no.

3. Did anyone close to you give birth?

4. Did anyone close to you die?
Not this year. Which is two in a row, which is a very long run. Fingers crossed and all that.

5. What countries did you visit?
Ireland, Germany. Drove through Belgium and Luxembourg.

6. What would you like to have in 2012 that you lacked in 2011?
A sun holiday.

7. What date(s) from 2011 will remain etched upon your memory, and why?
Maybe the day we moved to Greenwich from Leyton. So much happier here.

8. What was your biggest achievement of the year?
Still holding on to my job. Paying off my student loan (still have to pay off the overdraft though - maybe this year!).

9. What was your biggest failure?
A total lack of decision making.

10. Did you suffer any illness or injury?
A bunch of colds, but that's about it, apart from the usual joint pain. So basically, no.

11. What was the best thing you bought?
My smartphone. Wouldn't be without it.

12. Whose behavior merited celebration?
Iceland. Love you, Iceland.

13. Whose behavior made you appalled and depressed?
Christ, most politicians. Tabliod journalists, moreso even than usual.

14. Where did most of your money go?
Rent, student debt.

15. What did you get really, really, really excited about?
My new phone, pathetically. Living in Greenwich. Living with my frind Pobby, and my friend Tom moving to London.

16. What song will always remind you of 2011?
Probably that Adele song that's been on EVERYTHING.

17. Compared to this time last year, are you:

i. happier or sadder?

Happier, I'd say.

ii. thinner or fatter?

Fatter. For reals.

iii. richer or poorer?

Richer, in that I owe less money.

18. What do you wish you'd done more of?

Same as last year! Gigs, saving, being in the countryside.

19. What do you wish you'd done less of?

Stress. Boozing.

20. How did you spend Christmas?
At home with my family.

21. Did you fall in love in 2011?

22. How many one-night stands?

Not a one.

23. What was your favorite TV program?
Loving Archer - I think I discovered that in 2011. Also Community? Not sure if I'd started that in 2010.

24. Do you hate anyone now that you didn't hate this time last year?
Don't think so.

25. What was the best book you read?
I blasted through the Song of Ice and Fire books in about a week before I started watching the show, then never got around to watching the show. Massively flawed, obviously, but it takes something special to make me read 2000 pages or so in a week.

26. What was your greatest musical discovery?
I'm enjoying Pokey LaFarge.

27. What did you want to get?
A new phone! And I did!

28. What was your favorite film of this year?
I did enjoy Captain America.

29. What did you do on your birthday, and how old were you?
I turned 28. Took the day off work with the DH, went to museums and got a nice dinner.

30. What one thing made your year immeasurably more satisfying?
Moving to a nicer part of London. I can't believe how much it's affected things.

31. How would you describe your personal fashion concept in 2011?
Not Buying Things.

32. What kept you sane?
Tea. DH. Having the river and a huge park on my doorstep.

33. Which celebrity/public figure did you fancy the most?
Benedict Cumberpatch probably.

34. What political issue stirred you the most?
The total lack of accountability for the people running the banks that have created a massive social mess that they will never have to deal with.

35. Who did you miss?
My friends in Ireland. My nieces and nephews in the States.

36. Who was the best new person you met?
I worked with some great new diggers this year.

37. Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned in 2011:
Never throw out buttons.
