So it's hello to a brand new and shiny year. I love the feeling of a new start and a new 365 days to make the most of.
2013 has been a good year, with a lot of change. Chris and I started the year in London but moved back to my parents in March to save up for a house deposit. My parents then decided to relocate to Lincolnshire to be nearer family and for a lifestyle change. They had an offer accepted on a beautiful converted barn so Chris and I were suddenly on a deadline to get a place for ourselves (we didn't want to go back to renting). We ended up moving into our London flat a week after Mum and Dad moved into their new house- talk about a stressful time! Buying a flat has been such an achievement and I feel a lot more content now that we have our own four walls.
Buying a flat meant a lot of the year has been a bit in limbo however we enjoyed a holiday to Florida in April, plenty of BBQs in the old house and quite a few weddings! I also got a promotion at work which was very gladly received!
2014 should be more of a settled year. We have another Florida holiday lined up for May (that places just draws you in again and again) and want to make lots of changes to our flat as it is in need of some work. Hopefully by the end of the year we'll be enjoying a brand new kitchen and rooms that are far more to our taste. I also want to make sure I keep up with my blog as I really do enjoy it, and to finally sort out my nail biting habit. My Mum has given me a great nail regime to get them stronger and to stop them breaking so I'll probably do a post about this soon.
Here's to 2014!
