As we're coming to the end of another year, I thought it was about time I updated my blog.
The last few months haven't been easy; in fact 'hectic' and 'stressful' would probably sum it up better. However, as everything comes full circle (as it always does) I found myself thanking those dark moments for being in my life, as it makes the happier ones even sweeter.
Christmas has been a wonderful time to appreciate just what I have and all that is yet to come in 2014, so I thought I would share some snippets of what we got up to…
… I received some absolutely wonderful presents; including an engraved Tiffany charm bracelet from 'my pets' Herbert, Skye & Pebbles (they must've been saving their pocket money!), some lovely beauty bits, plenty of Christmas socks and my very first designer handbag… I'm scared to even breathe around it, so when I pluck up the courage to actually put things in it, I will perhaps show it in better detail! (It's a Mulberry Effie Hobo and is unbelievably beautiful). I feel incredibly lucky and I'm still pretty gobsmacked, to be honest!
Oh, and I did make a Christmas dinner (which, to say I'd had the help of my friend Mr. Rum and Coke, wasn't actually that bad!) but I was so hungry that was gone before I could even get a picture.
This year saw me meet my first sloth, travel to Costa Rica on a solo adventure and tick a huge, huge dream off of my bucket-list. I also began properly working my way towards my goal of becoming a primary school teacher; which I'm pleased to say has led me to two interviews to attend in January for a PGCE course! So despite the downfalls towards the end, 2013 really has been kind to me. I can't help but feel even more excited for 2014 and what will hopefully be the beginning of becoming a qualified teacher and pursuing my dream career. Fingers crossed!
And as for a New Years Resolution? Love, move and blog more. I like to keep them short and sweet; realistic and achievable. Because, let's face it, nobody knows what plans 2014 will have for us all, but I think I can accomplish those, regardless.
How was your Christmas? What NYE plans do you have?
I hope 2014 holds exciting adventures for all of you.
