Happy New Year, Hello 2011!

It seems strange to think this is going to be my first year in a new country, new friends, new job, new home. I had a wonderful last year, finishing university, gaining work experience at the Ministry of Education and Ministry of Transport, finishing looking after Callum (who is so grown up, I can’t imagine how big he’ll be next time I see him!) ((Hi Callum, John and Mandy!)) Living in Wellington was amazing, as are my friends and family, and setting off travelling was the scariest thing I’ve done yet!

I had a great night New Year’s Eve in Shoreditch and ended up spending the whole weekend with her friends. (Beth was a bit poorly and didn’t make it out haha.) In the lunchtime we walked down Brick Lane which was still heaving, and completely surreal with clubbers still lining up, looking a little worse for wear, and the street and buildings shaking from the bass. Now I need to find someone to go clubbing with!

I start work on Tuesday, and realised that I’ve kinda mucked around a bit over the past month. Ah well! I’m looking forward to work, and have started flat hunting.

My New Year’s Resolution is to visit one country a month this year! Wooo! So many opportunities from London! Maybe my blog posts will get more interesting again.

  1. Happy New Year to you too...will be an exciting one for sure. I hope your 1st day at work goes really well...will be a wee bit of a change for sure:-)
    Good luck with the flat-hunting. That must be quite difficult given the distances in London...getting from 'a' to 'b' would have it's challenges
    Much love 'n lotsa hugs from me xxxooo
