2014: The Year That Was.

Can you believe it's 15 years since the millennium! Nope, nor can I! In good blogging tradition I have decided to have a little reflect over the last year - and what a fantastic one it has been!  It's going to take a LOT of work to make 2015 half as good as 2014 was but we'll certainly try!

2014 was the year that...

... I started working at 10am in a shop. Graduated, living at home but with a dream to see the world

... I had my first heartbreak (sure there is a song of this title!). Almost 4 years of happy times came to an end, and I was pretty broken! But now I see that it was for the absolute best, I've been able to do so much by being a single pringle that I would never have been able to do otherwise. 

... I backpacked round Thailand and Australia. Nuff said. 

... I fulfilled my ultimate childhood dream of visiting Australia. I then bettered this by completing my life goal of visiting Ramsay Street (home of Neighbours, yes, I am an addict)

... I had the most hectic summer, working crazy hours and spending quite a bit wanting to cry with pressure. But I worked with the most amazing people and made friends all over the world. Hard work, but good work. 

... I saw one of my favourite singers, Kate Miller-Heidke, in concert. And it was worth the many years I've been waiting!

... I checked Iceland off the travel wish list. 

... I got a job, in exactly the field I have been interested in for an age!

... Within 10 days I'd packed up my stuff and left the sunny climes of Devon for a new life in the North. 

... And since then I have slowly been developing into a real adult being. I now wash, clean, cook and do the odd bit of gardening. I know understand the value of a glass of wine on a Friday evening. I am officially old ;)
So there we go, Happy New Year. Bring on 2015!!!

  1. Woo sounds like you had a great year! Backpacking must have been so amazing. Hahah I totally know what you mean about a glass of wine at the end of the day, I knew I was old when that started happening! x

  2. That's amazing that you went to Australia, Thailand and Iceland! 2014 sounds like it was amazing (besides the breakup but at least it didn't turn out to be such a bad thing.) I hope you have a wonderful 2014 full of more adventures!


  3. Sounds like you've had an incredible year! Australia is the one place that I must visit! (Though there are tons of other countries on that list!) My 4 year relationship broke up last year and it was tough but like you said, I've realised it was for the best and am so much happier now. Hoping all the best for 2015 (:

  4. Wow, what a year!
    I LOVE Icealand, but still have Australia and Thailand on my to-do list! :)
