Starting 2016 afresh

2015

When I started this blog, I had every intention of keeping it up-to-date and interesting.  But as with most things, life happened.

So here’s the last two years in brief:

May 2014: I became single.

June 2014:  One of my dogs, Molly, passed away leaving me with a lot of heartache, and a lonely (and now spoilt) old man.

October 2014:  I said goodbye to my second home, Jelly, in the hopes of gaining more experience.  I returned to the NHS with the contract management, quality and performance teams within Blackpool.

January 2015:  I turned 28.  Joy.  I also started dating with mixed results.

May 2015:  I didn’t get married.

June 2015:  I went on holiday for the first time abroad in about 5 years.

Yes, that’s my mum.

August 2015:  My brother moved into his own place.  (YAAAAAY!)

September 2015:  I went to EGX and saw some beautiful friends.

October 2015:  Caught up with old friends at MCM Comic Con London (and Halloween, obviously).

November 2015:  Helped out at the first Sexpo event in London.  Then Andreas left us, Jelly and the UK.

December 2015:  Visited Motorcycle Live in Birmingham and Manchester Christmas Markets (with the gorgeous Callum and Karla) for the first time.

 

A lot of heartache, a lot of laughter with some delicious cakes thrown in.

2015 Cakes

(L-R) iced buns with fresh cream and home-made jam, Victoria Sponge with fresh cream, fresh strawberries and black cherries, and finally Bailey’s Chocolate Mud Cake.  

 

So, that leads me to 2016 and what the future holds… all I know at the moment is:

I leave the NHS (again) in January 2016.  This time, for good.

The rest will be filled with wonderful people, extraordinary stories and a truck load of opportunities and challenges.  Oh, and cake.

Happy 2016!
