Between partying too much, being hungover and generally just a busy bee, I’ve been slacking on the blogging front lately.
So brace yourself, here’s a little snippet of my Christmas and New Year festivities, with a couple of resolutions thrown in for good measure!
As with most things in my life, Christmas Day did NOT go to plan. I think my sister Olivia would agree with that one…
It all started well on Christmas Eve, my friend Alex and I had our annual night out, still going strong eight years down the line! I made a pact with myself that I wasn’t to get too drunk, as I had to drive to my mums the next day, however, as always, this didn’t quite turn out the way I hoped… one or two, (or eight or nine wines) later, I was smashed! Ooooops.
So Christmas Day arrived, and to cut a long story short, I spent the day in Blackburn hospital with my sister!! Not exactly what we’d planned for. It was funny, as Olivia doesn’t really do drama, it’s usually me that has an issue or causes a commotion, but this time it was all her. I played the dutiful big sister role, and was by her side the whole time; well, until she had to stay in overnight. She was not a happy girl when she was told this news, as you can imagine.
Nothing too serious, it’s all good now, but by 9pm that night, when I arrived back at my mums, the turkey dinner and whole Christmas thing had lost its spark!
And to top it off, I had a Boxing Day night out planned, but of course, as my mother lives in the middle of nowhere, every route out of the village was flooded the next morning. There was no hope. GUTTED.
The next few days were spent seeing family and friends, and it finally felt Christmassy again. I dressed up in a sparkly dress and saw the New Year in with my friend Katie.
Now, like most people I HATE the saying ‘new year new me’… bore off. I understand that it’s good to start afresh and the new year gives us a chance to reflect, but my Facebook was literally filled with status after status about people’s ‘amaaaazing’ year… yes we get it.
I do like a good resolution, some are personal that I’m not keen to share with the world, so here’s a couple that I’ll let you in on…
Get GOOD at CrossFit. Not even good, just better. I’ve been at it 7 months now, so this year is all about improving some more, and seeing a real difference.
Obviously work up the career ladder, like most 24 year olds, I’m ambitious. ‘Work hard, play hard.”
Happy New Year folks, here’s a quote I came across which I absolutely LOVE!
