Goodbye 2013 (and good riddance!)

Finally, 2013 has come to an end!


This year has been full of huge ups and downs, and frankly I cannot wait for it to be over.


On the downside, I’ve had to deal with relatives and friends being seriously ill, resulting in me knowing the hospitals of London a lot better than I wish I did. On the plus side, I earned my first ever promotion! It’s obviously come with a lot more work and pressure, but it’s a big step in the right direction for my career.


On that note, let’s keep it positive! Here are my top 10 moments from 2013:


1) Retreating to the idyllic silence of the Lake District twice, once in January and then again in December


2) Taking an epic road trip to Scotland with my wonderful housemate and being proper tourists



3) Learning to ski in Austria at the Snowbombing Festival



4) Buying my beautiful Mulberry Del Rey!



5) Camping out on the Sherlock set (twice) and meeting Mr Cumberbatch himself!



6) Revisiting my old uni town of York, remisicing about days gone by and catching up with distant friends



7) Spending a solid seven days on a beach in Spain with my boyfriend



8) Getting tickets to see Nine Inch Nails at their tiny sold out Scala gig (and then again at Reading Festival a week later!)



9) Exploring Cornwall and eating my weight in pasties and ice cream



10) Dancing like a crazy lady at Future Cinema’s Dirty Dancing event



2014 so far promises more Nine Inch Nails gigs, a big house move and an amazing month long trip to Australia! It’s looking great already.


Happy new year!
