This year I've..





Read - 57 fiction books this year, I don't have photos cos my laptop had to go to be fixed and came back with everything wiped off it!  My favourite books this year were Longbourn by Jo Baker, Silver Shadows by Richelle Mead, The Shdow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon and all 4 Rainbow Rowell books.

Watched - Torchwood, Melissa and Joey, Doctor Who, Firefly and Serenity, Doctor Horrible's Sing Along Blog, Awkward, Sabrina the Teenage Witch, Agents of SHIELD.

Listened to - Eddi Reader - Vagabond, God Help the Girl, Wicked soundtrack, She and Him. 

Eaten - Croissants, pine nut pasta, 'cheese' and onion crisps, pizza, dhal. 

I've had another lovely year this year, I'm so lucky.  I became an auntie for the second time and got to spend lots of time with both of my lovely nieces, celebrated our 1 year anniversary with my boyfriend and my 30th birthday.  I've been to Brazil, Windsor, Legoland and the Harry Potter Studio Tour.  I saw David Tennant in Richard III and the touring production of Wicked.

The highlight of my year was seeing 3 real life wild toucans while I was on holiday in Brazil.  It was amazing!  AMAZING!

Next year I have plans to move house, I have my fingers crossed someone will buy my flat, and I hope I will have lots of adventures  (I already have tickets booked for a holiday in Cardiff, to go to the Doctor Who Experience, and tickets to see Kate Rusby in May.)  Yey!

I hope you all have a most excellent 2015, do you have any exciting plans?
