January was a lovely month for me. The pull-up bar was up in the living room and I can say the same about the decal “Life is short, eat dessert first” on the kitchen wall. Hubby and I went on a coffee-date, well we do go on coffee dates, but I blogged about that one because I want to remember them. We’ve also been at Greens in Manchester and to The Small Animal Show in Harrogate. It’s likely we will go to the animal show next year too, getting to see all the cute animals and pet them is too lovely to miss.
February is a busy time for me every year. This year was fab, we’ve spent a week in a lovely cottage while away with work. We had a trip to London together and not alone as I used to go. It was Valentine’s Day and I even got to try some wedding dresses for our vows renewal at a Wedding Fair.
March started great with a beautiful surprise hubby made for me. Festus got a card for me for Women’s Day. I saw Lymm and I went to the Beatles Museum. It was a solar eclipse, I’ve been to a blogger event and I also wrote a post on Why I blog.
In May lots of exciting things happened again. I’ve been to a Victorian May Day, another blogger event in Manchester, to Stonehenge, Windsor, London and I’ve got the chance to get into a race car built by the students at Liverpool Uni.
In June I took the Colourful Smoothie Challenge and I also run the Run or Dye race. I went to Africa Oye, a festival in Liverpool, to a County Show and a Bed race. The bed race was so much fun that I will go next year too.
July brought a new and exciting blogger event. Hubby and I went on a longer trip to London where we went to butterfly house and I saw the changing of the guard, Science Museum and British Museum. The house renovation progressed nicely, I had jars for spices and other ingredients. I also went for the first time to Oh Me Oh My and Bistro 1847.
Lots of fun things happened in August, like kayaking, feeding birds, road trips, Airshow in Blackpool. We had another trip to London where I could visit the Hunterian Museum and a few other attractions. The garden was finally done and we could enjoy the outside space as much as we wanted.
September was exciting because I stayed in a nice cottage and our neighbour was a fabulous horse, Danny. I saw the Rock Houses and Oxford. Hubby and I went to Cirquec, burlesque bar in Manchester. It was also our 1st home anniversary.
October is a special month because it’s the month when hubby and I met. For our anniversary, we went to Tune Hotels. It also is hubby’s birthday, when we’ve tried geocaching. Jump in was amazing, a ballpool for adults, it can’t get better than this. Great British Bake Off finished and I managed to get 2 star baker for my bakes. I was in London again, it was Halloween and a fireworks display in Blackpool.
In November is my birthday, when I went to Donington Park. I was in London again and I jumped at the opportunity to visit Mercedes-Benz World and Fan Museum. I went to another blogger event because I love going to blogger events. As every year, we’ve been to Sefton Park for the 20 minutes of fireworks for Bonfire night. In November I took the Blog Everyday in November Challenge and it went pretty good. I also made a list of 40 before 40 and went to the Liverpool Christmas Market to get into the Christmas spirit.
December was fun. I made a Christmas series that I loved writing: Vegetarian Christmas, The Best Christmas gift and Christmas traditions. I received funny gifts for Saint Nicholas Day, I made Christmas cards for my Secret Santa and I tried Pilates. I went to Sherwood forest and Rufford Abbey, the County of Robin Hood. I also took the Instagram Christmas Challenge and I think it went great. As a perfect way to finish the year, I was invited to Christmas Bake Off with Holland & Barrett where I met Ugne. The year finished with a visit to Knowsley Safari Park and that was amazing, as always.
