A New Year and a Fresh Start for 2014

This is the second time on my blog I've written this post, and looking back at my expectations for 2013 'Here' I managed to fulfill quite a bit!

 


I went to Paris, I bought my Canon 600D, I conquered my job and a role that wasn't pushing me enough, and started a new role which I love.  I didn't manage to go on any photography courses (yet) and sadly I didn't find my Mr right (this wasn't after the want of trying, and many, many dates)

So I feel that I have accomplished quite a bit.

also had on my 2013 list to be happy and blog more.  Its true writing my blog has pushed me in directions I wouldn't think possible, I have met AMAZING people who have become great friends, and I have been invited to some great events too.

BUT, and this is a big but - this year has been tough, I lost the gorgeous flat I rented with a friend, who let me down, I have moved 3 times this year and it's really gotten me down too.  

And then, one of the most important people in my life my dear Mags passed away (you can read about this 'Here') in October this year.  It's been a truly awful time, and my life will never be the same without her encouragement, love and zest for life.

I would never of thought that she would leave us, and I am still coming to terms with it and have struggled to go to work everyday, film and write blog posts but I do it because I love all my readers, and I also do it for Mags, as she was the reason I started blogging and OMG would she be mad with me if I didn't keep it up.


So although it's not been a great year for me, some of it has been amazing - Paris, Parties, my lovely friends, I really couldn't ask for more - apart from someone special to share it all with!

So my list for 2014 goes a little something like this -

Travel more
Fall in Love
Make a Difference (somehow)
And...Be Happy

Simple things really!

So my lovely readers and friends - enjoy the last day of 2013, make it a good'un and lets hope 2014 is a good year for all of us!


Thanks for all your love and support in 2013, and for reading my blog.

  1. You deserve an amazing year and that's exactly what you're going to have. Mags may be gone in person but she's still there in spirit, inside your heart and mind, pushing you on to achieve everything you can achieve and so much more. Have a happy NYE tonight, toast Mags and smile as the new year rolls in with all it's opportunities xxx
