2013.  What a year.  Rollercoaster is too clichéd but JEEEEZUS … it was a mental.

 

I’m sat here on the Sunday night after Christmas, watching Shaun of the Dead with my new friend keeping me company for a few days whilst Dexter is away on his NYE Sleepover trip.  I’m mulling over the year and wondering what 2014 will have in store.  The answer?  I have absolutely no idea.  But what I do know is this:  by hook or crook, 2014 will be awesome. Fact. No ‘ifs’ or ‘buts.’  Work wise, love wise, family wise .. this is going to be MY year.

 

This year has seen my eldest son go to uni and me finally doing The Brave Thing.  I’ve dated morons galore and could write a book on them (and will!) … but I’ve also met someone I like (a lot.)  Who’dda thunk it?  I’ve been made redundant, but been headhunted for a much better job within the month.  I’ve sent Dexter on a 4 day New Year trip that I’m hoping will be character building, but it’s also allowed me some much deserved me time.  AT LAST.

 

It saw me win a writing competition for Cruise magazine and report on the maiden voyage of The Royal Princess.  It also saw me travel to Italy with Royal Caribbean.  Which was all kinds of amazing.

 

2013 saw Dexter and I go to Notting Hill Carnival …

 

 

 

It saw Dexter turn 9 …

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It saw Dexter venture out on his own to the shops …

 

 

 

It saw me go to Whistable for my summer holiday with my best friend and our boys …

 

 

We went cherry picking …

 

 

 

I modelled clothes and stuck my boobs out A LOT …

 

 

 

 

We went exploring down the woods …

 

 

I even found myself on not one, but TWO cruises!

 

 

 

 

 

 

And finally, it saw me set Dexter free on a little mini adventure at New Year.

 

 

I’m a firm believer in making your own destiny and that’s exactly what I intend to do.

 

So, Happy New Year everyone.  May it kick ass.
