The year started pretty well. My wife and I managed to get a few dates in, and we spent some time redecorating our flat. After the first lockdown, a couple of friends visited us, and they spent a weekend with us before the second lockdown hit.
I read many books, including No More Plastic, The Four-Hour Work Week, Deep Work, Money – A User’s Guide, Crushing It!, Contagious and Think and Grow Rich. They were all fantastic reads, and I definitely recommend all of them to anyone who might be interested.
I released my first eBook and sold 14 copies. Next year, I will be looking to expand the book, and sell it for more money.
My blog moved away from a static built site into WordPress because WP is a whole lot easier to deal with and allows me to focus on writing.

Some not-so-good points worth mentioning
Of course, the year has had plenty of bad stuff happen which has affected my family and I.
I haven’t had the chance to see my mum in person for starters and give her a hug that she definitely deserves right now. I’ve had a few family members pass away, and I couldn’t go to their funerals because of COVID.
My wife’s side-hustle has taken a dive this year, but thankfully it’s extra income and hasn’t affected us too much financially.
I hope everyone has a lovely New Years and I hope you can still get some enjoyment out of celebrating the year to come. Personally, I will be viewing some live rock/metal event on Facebook and enjoying a few alcoholic beverages. Find some time for yourself, and enjoy the final day of 2020. See you in 2021!
