2013 in review...

Well don't worry I wasn't swept away by the crowds on Oxford Street I just got swept away by Chrimbo excitement....
Just before we ring in the new year I thought I'd look back over 2013..... I started the year by thinking the '13' sounded a bit ominous but in fact it's been ace...who'd have thought I'd have a new job, 2 new stamps in my passport (Turkey & Japan - I know I know I'll post pics soon!) & (fingers crossed) a new house (not wanting to jinx this so won't go into any more detail yet!)?!

So without further ado...let's see how I did with my resolutions...eep!

~ FEEL GOOD ABOUT MYSELF
Well I did pretty well over the year - I joined a gym, started spinning & kept afloat with deep water aqua aerobics all this mixed with the 5:2 diet meant I lost about a stone (probably put most of it back on now thanks to chrimbo with the folks but back to the gym on Thursday no excuses!)...that mixed with most of my jeans ripping(!) meant I dressed better & was happy with how I looked....this resolution gets a big WIN!

~ ALWAYS UNPACK WHEN I GET BACK
Well considering most of my stuff is still in piles from chrimbo & in various bags this is a big FAIL! 

~ STOP BEING LAZY
Well it's hard to say WIN or FAIL here....I get up at 6am for the gym so that's ace but then in the evenings & on weekends I'm still a slob...guess that's just me then?!

~ WATCH A NEW (old) FILM 2/3 TIMES A MONTH
My movie knowledge is still appalling....FAIL!

~ PAY OFF SNEAKY BIT ON CREDIT CARD & KEEP IT OFF FOR GOOD!
I'm ending the year & starting the next with no credit card & not even an overdraft....mega WIN for me!

~ GO TO BED BEFORE 11:30pm ON WEEKDAYS
Been trying to go to bed earlyish...I think I've managed 11:30pm without tying too much...WIN! Would love to maybe make it earlier next year!

~ FINALLY CHANGE MY BLOG NAME
Done WIN & I love being a MRS! Yay!

So if 2013 was supposed to be dodgy, roll on 2014! X

Heading to Oxford Circus on the last Sunday before Chrimbo....

What am I doing?!
If you don't hear from me I've been swept away by the crowds! Wish me luck!

With a pack of Ginger Nuts in one hand...

& gig tickets in the other it could only mean one thing...Dave Hause was playing in London! I wonder if he regrets saying he likes these as the biscuit mountain grows higher?!
First stop before any music could be listened to was grub! We discovered a little gem called The Horatia. Now food was a bit pricey (all coming from Borough market) but was really yummy. The best part? They had loads of ale on offer, sadly I was driving so just had a little Brew Dog but I'm sure we'll be back someday soon!

With bellys full & spirits raised we set off to The Garage. I'd never been before but was a great little venue. We arrived just before Dave began but managed to find a perfect spot behind the lighting desk allowing a little squirt like me an ace view!
We enjoyed a good old sing-a-long to both old & new songs & giggled along at some of his random ramblings, Prague & Resolution still remaining firm favourites in the set.

Afterwards we stayed around to say hi & get out ticket signed before heading home. Yes I know it was Friday night & everyone was in the queue for the venue to be turned into a rock club, but as the bouncer pointed out to me "might as well go home, it gets really noisy & you wouldn't like it!" 

This raises the question do I really look as old as I feel sometimes?! Yoink!

The thing about me...

..is I'm such a shrinking violet, I never like to stand out from the crowd!
Now I like to wear colours but I swear my tights weren't that bright in the shop! Well at least I won't get lost...who needs hi-vis with these around?!
At least I'm keeping the wedding colours alive next to Carlton!

It's the cardboard diet...

Otherwise known as an Advent Calendar. Who knew an easily opened little cardboard door holds the power to stop me snacking..
Leave a bar of choc in the lounge, kitchen or even hidden away I'll sniff it out & gobble it up like it's going out of fashion...put little chunks behind numbered doors & I act like a proper adult with marvelous restraint! I love how my little mind works!
