Did someone say it was 2019? How did that happen. 2018 was a whirlwind of emotions. It started in Big White living my life long dream of working in a ski resort. I had 6 months left on my working holiday visa. I moved back to England. I reunited with my family and friends. I met my friend’s babies for the first time. I went to a festival. I visited my Vancouver friends in the New Forest. I went back to Vancouver for a holiday. And it ended with a house party surrounded by my loved ones. It has flown by. I must say this every time but I honestly don’t know how the weeks turn into months so easily. Anyways I’ve broken it down for you, the last 6 months in a nutshell.
A welcome home party, surrounded by faces I hadn’t seen in two years. A walk around Skidby Scarecrow Festival. A day of wedding celebrations for Joe and Alex. A last minute trip to Sheffield to see my cousin George graduate. I turned 27 years old and got a new piercing.
I gained freedom in the form of Penny the Peugeot. I went to my first ever Ladies Day at Beverley Racecourse. I drank the weekend away at Tribfest with my family. I drove down to the New Forest to spend the weekend with my Vancouver ladies, Daisy and Rachelle. I biked on the Isle of Wight and I tried my first affogato. Life changing.
I went to Leeds for a burger at Almost Famous. It was worth the hour drive. I finally reunited with my uni friends in our uni town. I showed Daisy the delights of Hull.
My sister and her boyfriend bought a house. I celebrated my Dad’s birthday. I threw a Halloween house party and dressed up as a nurse. I flew to Vancouver to get my Canada fix. I had the best time ever (separate post coming soon).
I continued to have the best time ever. I flew home and the same emotions came flooding back. I went back to work. I saw Calendar Girls at Hull New Theatre. I went to a comedy night at Hullensians Rugby Club. My Dad and I put the Christmas tree up.
I devoured a festive afternoon tea at Skidby Millhouse Restaurant. I went to see Cinderella Pantomine at Hull New Theatre. I laughed out loud at an adult pantomime by Middle Child Production. I drank too much pink tequila on Christmas Eve. I ate my Christmas dinner at my sister’s house. I got cream in my face from Pie Face. I spilled food on my top twice. I lost the bank job at Escape Rooms Hull. I brought in the New Year at home absolutely wasted.
Now to present day, happy New Year! I promise to take more photos, write about my travels, travel more, take better care of my money and get my Canadian permanent residency sorted. What goals have you set?
