2012 – year review

I wanted to write this post before the end of 2012 but having a stomach bug but a damper on that idea, so I’m writing it now (this post was also going to be my goals for 2013 but the post got too long – that post will follow. 🙂 ) I’ve seen a few of my friends blogs review their past year categorised by month and decided to steal that idea. I’ve decided to focus on the main points that happened in each month. January I started off January by joining weight watchers. I didn’t set out to loose Read More…

Paris by motorbike

This past weekend was a bank holiday weekend and Artur and I decided to go on a road trip to Paris, it was a last minute decision. We started the day very earlier on the Friday and travelled the 3 hours to Folkestone to get The Channel Tunnel to Calais, then drove 3 hours from Calais to Paris the other side. It’s difficult trying to get a passport out of an inner biker jacket pocket and they also had us take our helmets off! I understand why but it was time consuming. I had to dismount for the motor bike Read More…

Goal set: Cook and Bake more often I can cook, I can bake—often I’m just too lazy too (especially with the former). I’d like to change that and I have been (I’ve also been eating healthier). 🙂 Goal met? Half of this goal is working out – I bake more – a lot more. Read More…

Zielona Gora, Gdansk and Sopot – Poland

I took my first trip alone, on a plane, to Poland! I was really nervous about the trip, especially not knowing much of the language (other than hello and goodbye) but Artur assured me most people would understand what I said if I spoke to them in English and, most did, though it took a few attempts.  I arrived at Gdansk airport in the morning and faced my first problem, which toilet was the ladies! If you’ve never been to Poland, the ladies toilet has a circle on it and the men’s has a triangle on it. Luckily I’d done Read More…

2012

Happy Belated New Year! I’ve written down a list of things I want to accomplish in 2012, New Year’s resolutions, I suppose (except whenever I use that term I never stick to them!) Cook and Bake more often I can cook, I can bake – often I’m just too lazy too (especially with the former). I’d like to change that and I have been (I’ve also been eating healthier). 🙂 Wear more skirts and dresses This one is my friend Ali’s influence, she’s always getting me to try on new things when we go out shopping that I wouldn’t normally Read More…
