Wordless Wednesday: Soup of the day

I could do with some soup today…


Why I think 2018 is going to be an awesome year!

Resolutions, smesholutions… who needs them anyway? Nobody sticks to them for more than a week! Instead, I’m just going to list a bunch (make that 26) reasons why I think 2018 is going to be a great year for me πŸ˜€

A – Adventure; I always find ways to throw some adventure into my life… this year will be no different πŸ™‚

B – Beer mile; this will be taking place at some point this year, thanks to my friends Z&S

C – Cats; Olly & Emmett always bring smiles to my face

My darling hearts ❀

D – Date nights; I plan on having lots of these with a certain special someone ❀

E – Essays; Not normally something to call ‘awesome’, but I’m going to learn how to write a killer essay πŸ˜‰

F – Food; So many new restaurants open, so few meals in the day… will do my best to try as many new places as possible πŸ™‚

G – Girls; I’ve got so many absolutely fabulous friends!

H – Hazy; be all the me that I can be!

I – Instagram; Let’s try get 200, or even 250 (!) followers

J – JΓ€ger; drink lots of this on holiday with the family πŸ˜‰

K – Karaoke; surely we can get one night of karaoke at some point during the year?! πŸ˜‰

L – Louvre; I’d love to visit the Abu Dhabi Louvre

M – Massage;Β treating myself to regular massages

O – Opera; going to watch Evita at the Opera!

P – Personal Best; I want to smash my half marathon time and get it under 2 hours

Q – Quality Assurance; I have to get my company through their Audits to be certified… I can and I will!

R – Running; it deserves 2 spots coz I love it so much… just keep running!

S – Snow; PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE can this be the year that I have a white Christmas?!?!?!?!?!

T – Travel; there is always somewhere new to travel to!

U – Unforgettable;Β create lots of those moments that will live on forever

V – Vacation; not always to new places, but getting away from it all always makes a difference! I’ve got a few of these on the cards this year πŸ™‚

W – Whiskey and wine; why not try drinking more of these??

X – X-ams; I write my first set of exams in May – scary and exciting all at the same time (and yes, I cheated on this one πŸ˜‰ )

Y – Youthful; ‘Growing old is mandatory, growing up is optional’ – I will stay young at heart for ever πŸ™‚

Z – Zip line; I reeeeaaalllly want to try this out in Dubai Marina – definitely something to add to the something new list!

Oh yes it is! Bring on 2018!

Holiday time!

Just a quick one to let everyone know that I’m off to South Africa for Christmas – spending it with the fam-dam again!

Cannot wait for family hugs and kisses, some time in the bush with the animals, meeting my best friends’ baby daughter, and just getting some proper chillax time in.

Wishing everyone a wonderfully Merry Christmas – may yours be filled with love, laughter, happiness, family, friends and presents!

Merry Christmas!!!
