Happy New Year everyone!
I hope you had fun, whatever you got up to. I, like so many other people I’ve spoken to, had a quiet one in. Chinese, a couple of drinks, games and tv with the family. I stayed up for the fireworks and then went to bed.
Here are my favourite memories of 2013:
Pre-birthday trip to the salon with mummy * Valentine’s meal at Loch Fyne * Bloc Party at Earls Court * My Uni friend, Natalie’s engagement party * End of an era: last game at Underhill * City break to Madrid * Passing my driving test at the third attempt * Visiting The Hive for the first time * Getting a full-time job post-uni, after two years * Buying a car * Family holiday in Alfas del Pi * Work’s awards night * My best friend from childhood, Gemma’s engagement party * City break to Paris * My work Christmas meal * Family Christmas
These were taken from my Instagram and there are so many other memories, including my friend from school, Lizzie’s hen party and wedding (exciting, much?), spa day with Vicky, a couple of theatre trips, friends’ birthdays and a day on the drink with the Barnet lot. Considering I didn’t have a job or a lot of money for over half the year, I crammed an awful lot in!
As for 2014, I’ve made a few New Year’s Resolutions and I’m really hoping I stick to them – especially as I managed two out of three last year:
· Make more of an effort to keep in contact with old friends – whether it’s texting, calling or arranging to meet up
· Exercise more (at least three times a week) and as soon as the weather is better, start swimming again – or find a running/walking buddy
· Snack healthy at work – no more sitting around eating crap (the snack desk the last two months has taken its toll)
Have you made any New Year’s Resolutions?
