Curtain Call

Isle Wight Festival 2010 /36Image by joedawson via Flickr
As we were seeing in the New Year at a friends house, we weren't required to participate in any of the organisation.

Instead we went to Bluewater, the aim to pass the time more than anything but there was potential to find last minute purchases in the sales. I wasn't motivated to buy something purely for the sake of having a new outfit for the evening, but if I were to have found anything I would have considered! To be fair, I have been disappointed in the sales this month, especially as it's expected that consumers will take a breather from spending in the early stages of 2011.

Distancing from the state of the economy, I have really enjoyed the past year! Other than the occasional difficulties gaining access to the children, I have met someone that inspires and makes me very happy. Without her influence, the likelihood is that I would have never considered higher education. I feel energised, confident and feel our relationship can become even stronger!

I'm sure there will be challenges ahead, we're both open minded about the future and still trying to find our place in another city. I also hope that I will be able to work around studies, mainly because I want a holiday and to experience more of The North. Anyway, let's give this year a decent send off first...
