Here's a summary of the year that I've had:

January: I spent the first few days of this month in New York, as my friends and I had travelled there on Boxing Day to spend New Year’s Eve there. It was an amazing holiday that was filled with shopping, ice-skating, going to restaurants and visiting museums, all whilst the city was covered in snow! It was nice to return home though; I’d missed Tom so much! Another fun memory of January was creating my Media coursework with my friends; we had to create a music video. We chose to use 'Seaside' by The Kooks and we filmed it all in one day, it was so much fun!

February: Tom and I spent out first Valentines Day together and we cooked a meal together, steak and garlic potatoes if I remember correctly! It was also Tom's birthday and we went to Manchester for the day. One of out friend's held a birthday party and the theme was 'Suit Up!', it was nice seeing everyone dressed so smartly!

March: Tom and I visited the University of Liverpool and became certain that it was where we wanted to go and study. We celebrated our one year anniversary at one of the nicest restaurants I've ever been to, Ascoughs. I hope we go again this year! March was also host to some of the best nights out, especially the Colts party held at the rugby club. I can't even count how many times I fell over that night. 

April: I spent a few nights in London just before the Royal Wedding took place. I went with my Dad and sister and we saw The Lion King musical and it was brilliant! I worked throughout the day of the Royal Wedding and there was a hog roast in celebration of it at the restaurant. I kind of wish I'd been able to celebrate it a bit more!

May: I finished sixth form in May and we had a Leavers Meal to celebrate it. Awards were also given out in an assembly earlier that day and I won one for 'Best Dressed Female' haha! The next day I went camping on Oxford for the weekend with Tom and his family. Despite the weather it was a really nice weekend, I became brave all of a sudden and jumped off a bridge!

June: I had the best time ever at Glastonbury, I don't think any festival could possibly compare to it. One of my favourite memories from Glasto was sitting on the grass with a Brothers strawberry cider and watching City and Colour just as the sun was setting. 

July: I went to Cornwall for a week with Tom and his family. Cornwall is one of my favourite places, I love it there! It was lovely spending the days walking around St Ives, bodyboarding, walking along beaches, eating scones, and spending the evenings BBQing before heading to a nearby pub. 

August: I visited some family in France for about ten days with Tom. It was our first time going abroad together and it was a really great relaxing holiday that was filled with sunbathing by the lake, drinking local wine, eating pastries, and going to the many fetes that were held by surrounding villages. Two days after we returned home I found out that I'd gotten into university, hooray!!! The rest of the month was spent celebrating with friends, especially my best friend as she turned 18 and had an awesome Mexican themed party.

September: I turned 19 at the beginning of the month and spent the day in Birmingham with Tom, in the evening we went out for dinner with my family at the restaurant where I work. My sister made me a wonderful cat cake. I moved to Liverpool a few days later and the little room in that picture became my home for the next few months. I had an excellent freshers week, made excellent friends, and explored Liverpool with Tom.

October: I had the best Halloween ever!!!!! In October I also began to really enjoy cooking, Tom and I make quite the culinary team! We did lots more sight seeing in Liverpool such as going to the top of one of the cathedrals, going out for cocktails, and spending afternoons down at the docks.

November: November was a really great month. We watched a massive fireworks display at Sefton Park when my Dad came to visit us in Liverpool. We also went out for dinner with him at an amazing restaurant called The Hub. Tom and I went to see our favourite band Death Cab For Cutie play in Birmingham and they were brilliant!!!! It was one of our friends birthdays and we all got dressed up and went to the casino, it was quite a strange experience! My best friend came up to visit me too and it was great having a catch up followed by a fun night out!

December: Possibly my favourite month! It was filled with loads of lovely festive activities with my flatmates. It was so so so nice coming home for Christmas and I really did have a wonderful one with my family. I also had quite an eventful yet fun New Year's Eve. 

I am almost certain that this year will be just as good, if not better, than last year!
