I hope you had a lovely break over Christmas and are excited for the year ahead. How did you celebrate? We spend a blustery Christmas by the sea with my family and saw in the new year with a dear friend in the best way possible - with onesies, facepacks and cocktails (Sorry Pina Colada, your place in my heart has been usurped by a Fizzy Fuzzy Navel.)
Although it seemed to pass in a bit of a blur, thinking back 2013 was kind of a big deal. I started a new job, Mr P finished his Masters and moved back here, we found a flat and moved in together, planned a wedding and got hitched. In 2013 there were a couple of firsts - a rock concert and a trip to the nail salon. The two were unrelated. Hands down my top 2013 moment was the impromptu heart-shaped conga-line after the wedding. Genius.
I'm grateful for all that's happened this year and everyone who made it awesome. Some of my favourite moments of 2013 were spent with friends, laughing until we cried, cycling through the forest, making tea, baking in pyjamas, impromptu drives, meeting deadlines, learning new things, wearing red shoes and crafting my derriere off.

Learning a new stitch pattern was a fab way to start the year. I feel a tradition coming on.
So 2014? I'm not sure what's in store, but I'd like to. . .
Knit a jumper
Crochet a blanket
Start running again
Darn my socks
Be a morning person (any advice welcome!)
Have you made any resolutions or goals?
