What happened in 2013

Tuesday, December 31, 2013

2013 happened to be a rather busy year for me really.
I made rash resolutions, including going teetotal for a year , although I didn’t achieve all of them I had a last try (that failed too). Roxy the dog came and went . I went on  holiday with 9 other bloggers which was surreal but great fun!
Blickling Hall8I went on a weekend away to Hollin Hall Hotel. Took part in a swap.  We found Lincoln and welcomed him into our lives. We started dog training  and made some good progress.
I Took up running and started competing in local 10k races , started the Running Commentary series, pondered my fitness motivation, ran a 5k road race, ran a few  more 10k races,  tried to fathom how to keep maintain fitness all year round
We cooked at home regularly and ate out at The Olive Tree, Browns Kitchen (twice), as one of my Christmas presents I went to Pudding Night at Elveden  I visited plenty of local sights: Blickling Estate, Felbrigg Hall, Houghton on the Hill, the Broads, the coast , Hingham,  Poppy’s Wood, went to Thetford Forest.
Felbrigg6Took an interest in beauty blogging, had a bash at baking and again.
The flowers in our garden bloomed beautifully, I vlogged (nobody cared), I ventured to London to see the only band I would go there for: Muse, took a holiday, headed to a family wedding and had a brilliant time at The Household Cavalry Open Day
Did you notice the total blog revamp? It took a while. Photoshop elements and I met, and had a party I started Photo Show & Tell for a while before I accepted that it wasn’t taking off. There was a local Bloggers cocktail party in Norwich , a family friend's wedding in September.

Had a blogging wobble but perked up again. It turns out I bought quite a few new clothes (oops) but had great fun with putting together outfits all year.
