Goodbye 2013, hello 2014

Hello blog my old friend. It's been a while.

2013 was a naughty word I can't type.
And I'm so glad it's over.

A lot of wonderful things happened. Jamie raised a truck load of money for street children in Sierra Leone and travelled there to work. I graduated with a 2:1, marking the end of three of the best years of my life. I ran my first ever race and trained for it. Thank you to the special lady who inspired me to do so. I took a week's holiday on my own with Molly, as well as run a shop (for two hours a day, but still). I travelled over the sea to Belgium, a short break but just what I needed. Jamie proposed !! I learnt to de-clutter and get rid of stuff and willingly for the first time in my life. It's a process but I've started. I spent less money. We were given the most perfect chair. My baby became my child who became my best friend.

However, when I graduated I also discovered a sadness I wasn't expecting. It's still there. I think it's common and I'm trying.

I wrote a list last year of things I would do after finishing my degree, before 2014. I did 60% of that list. This year I'm only adding a few little bits. 

My first new habit is to run more. I really enjoy it. The one thing I said I'd never do!

I would like to learn something new and improve my creative talents this year. In 2013 I learnt to knit. This year I hope to get much better at it and make some more yarn related items. I'd also like to learn a new skill and expand my knowledge. I went to an art class on Saturday. It didn't quite refresh me as I'd hoped but it was something different.

I'm ready to rename this place. And get more creative.

I will be back this afternoon with a fun post that's prompted my return. If you're not at Uni- January is a pretty shitty month huh?

  1. i wish i could learn to enjoy running. i agree with you on the leaving university, it leaves you with an odd feeling that you didn't realise would ever be there, it's definitely a common feeling. i think doing 60% of any "to do" list is an epic achievement, good luck with your list this year. absolutely adore the first picture of you and molly by the way, brilliant! x
