Project 365 round-up and goodbye 2012

01 Jan

IMG_2170I would like to say Happy New Year to all my readers and subscribers and I hope you have had an excellent 2012.

It has been a big year, especially for us Brits with the Diamond Jubilee and Olympic Games.

2011 was a big year for me. I graduated, passed my driving test and got a job so I knew it was going to be a difficult year to top. I did, however, complete my two big New Year’s resolutions this year which were to complete Project 365 and move out. The latter I have only just managed to do (four days before Christmas). Still I have a few good points from this year which, instead of doing a ‘Top Ten’ like I did last year, I have decided to summarise each month with a photo thanks to my Project 365. I would like to thank everyone who followed my Project 365 for your support. It is a lot harder than it looks so if you are going to do this project, make sure you have lots of hobbies so you have lots of things to take pictures of. It is not something I would do again but it was fun while it lasted and I am glad I stuck with it to the end.

I began the year by walking a quarter of the way up Cader Idris, North Wales with Tom. I made a resolution that I would walk up to the top of a mountain at some point during the year. On Day 190 I made it to the top of Pen y Fan.

For Valentine’s Day Tom and I went tree climbing at a Go Ape course. Better than a romantic meal out.

In March we went on a beer tour at the Hogs Back Brewery...

…and were so inspired by the brewery tour, we went on to make our own beer. A moderate success.

As I have said many times, Eurovision is one of my favourite events of the year and here I am with my university friend Steph having our own Eurovision party.

Last month I moved out of my parents’ home and into my new flat with Tom. A great way to end the year!

I do not have a set goal for 2013 so I am going to go with the flow. My one project for this year is to complete the BBC Book List Challenge. I have already read some of the books but I have a long way to go. It is a good thing I like to read.
