What this has all made me appreciate even more is having Rachel around as my rock to lean on. So, my event of the year isn't so much a single moment but every moment I've needed support and Rachel has been there.
This was also the year a certain gorgeous young rabbit came into my life. Barney may not be the friendliest of pets, but there's no escaping his cuteness and, like my incredible godson Alec, I'll do anything for him.
I'd been on at Rachel for as long as we'd been living together that I wanted a pet - I originally wanted a cat (unfortunately Rachel's allergic) and she wanted a dog (I'm not a dog person) and we compromised on a rabbit.
Best compromise ever! Everyone loves Barney!
