Fun: Looking Back on 2013

Before I look forward to 2014, I thought I’d take a quick look back at the year that was 2013 and I have to say it’s been a vintage year. Normally at this time of year I’m counting down the days until the whole ‘new year, new start’ thing kicks in. But I have to say, whilst I’m looking forward to 2014 and all the potential it holds, I’ve really enjoyed 2013. It’s funny because looking back the start of the year was filled with trepidation and lots of plans for change, then lots of changes happened outside of my control (work stuff which I won’t bore you with) but I hunkered down and in the end it all worked out well. Just goes to show, huh? Thank you to everyone who has made it so brilliant. You know who you are…

Here are some of the highlights…

Not too shabby!
