2013: This Is Just A Tribute

I love New Year. Despite always being sad that Christmas is over, I like looking forwards, starting afresh, making new resolutions and goals. I've got a couple this year...but before all that, I wanted to reflect on 2013.

This has been a year of two halves for me. I started out this year in a living situation I wasn't happy with, in a friendship that was really toxic for me in a number of ways, and just one failed exam away from losing my job. Fast forward a year and I'm living happily with my boyfriend, qualified in my job, and I've really got my muchness back! So here we go... a little run through of all the things, big and small, that I've been lucky enough to do this year.

Finally, I am so glad I started my blog. Thanks all of you who have followed and supported me - I was a bit scared to start, but I haven't looked back - onwards and upwards! Hope you all have an amazing New Year!

New Year's Eve - Vibe Bar, Brick Lane

1 year - dinner at the Cinammon Kitchen, which went well until I ate an entire chilli and had to down a glass of wine

Center Parcs - I don't really think he won anything

Center Parcs in my not too sensible boots

Snow angels on Mummy's birthday

Family games

Snowy top golf

Good times with good people

A magical mystery tour

New friends

View over Liverpool 

Party at the Tower of London
Afternoon tea

Festival fun at RW
Relaxing in Turkey...
...for a while, anyway
Living in a hotel...
Falling in love with Cornwall all over again
Moving into my dream flat

Making some new friends along the way
Notting Hill Carnival
Arctic Monkey loving
Fireworks night
Loving York
And my lovely, silly boyfriend

Christmas parties with the best family...
...and friends that a girl could ever ask for.
A Christmas Day that made me realise family is the most important thing
And rounding it all of on top of the world in the Peak District
