Goodbye 2015

Wow another year gone, I seriously don't know where the time goes!! This year has been absolutely crazy.


I reached my 21st birthday which was amazing and i spent it with my boyfriend and my family. I went to my dads in Birmingham went for a nice meal with some drinks. That's my favourite type of celebrating these days to be honest. I'm not up for going out and getting smashed out my face in a club anymore it's not my cup of tea at all (however each to their own of course). I had the most amazing 21st. I have however forgot to mention the fact my boyfriend got food poising the night before from putting prawns in the microwave (what an idiot) and was up every half an hour hugging the toilet. Was touch and go to whether we ever made it to my dads in Birmingham! I still to this day hold this against him haha as it was my big 21 after all!!!


March I was taken to London as a belated 21st birthday present by my lovely housemate Jodi. We started by heading off to the London eye which I had never been on before but had always wanted too. Then we headed on for dinner and cocktails and ended up having the funniest night ever. A tour of London on the back of a bike that was being wheeled along was my favourite part of the whole trip.


I finally passed my driving test after years of trying. I passed my theory forth time and my driving test second time (they do say people that pass second time are the best, and I have to say I agree haha). This had to be one of the most nerve racking experiences of my life! I tried to pass originally last October 2014, I went to the test centre for them to tell me my test had been cancelled and moved to November 2014 I was so upset!! Not only did I waste my time getting there but it now meant I had to stress myself out waiting for November to come round. Anyway, after more lessons and practicing i felt abit more confident going into my test but i unfortunately failed due to a major for being in the wrong lane at a junction.. apparently this was enough for a major?? I think I drove pretty well but I'm only the learner right?
After this my confidence was knocked quite a bit and I decided to leave driving for a little bit and concentrate on other things. Until I knew I was ready myself I didn't see why I should keep paying for lessons. The new year came round and I told myself I really want to pass my driving test this year and I knew I was ready for it. So I contacted my driving instructor and he was so so lovely and helped me to feel confident and ready again so when I finally took my second test in may I PASSED!!! I personally thought I would be quite a confident little driver I mean don't get me wrong I'm great at driving and going short little distances like back and forth from work is fine. However, if I have to drive far I get very nervous and I over think it before I leave so much, but when I'm actually driving and I get there I always ask myself what the big deal was about? its other people that scare me :(
I went on a beautiful holiday with my boyfriend to Mykonos. OMG this place was like heaven and we stayed in one of the most beautiful hotels called the Pietra E Mare.
When we arrived we was ever so lucky to be upgraded to the honey moon suit! It was the most beautiful little apartment with the most beautiful view from our room.
 The views were absolutely incredible. Where we was located we was quite a walk away from the towns and restaurants but we only had to catch a bus from the bottom of the hill and it would take you into Mykonos town which was sight to be seen in itself. It was full of cute little allys and cute little boutiques and shops. If you ever visit Mykonos I wouldn't miss the opportunity of going here.

If you want to see more on this holiday let me know and I'll do a separate post all about it.
in october i had a night in London with my best friends. When my friends get dressed up they all look amazing!! We headed to london and went to a roof top bar called Sushisamba it has the most icredible views. I love a sophisticated night out with my ladies its always such good laugh and we always have so much to catch up on espcially as with my full time work i don't get to see them very much. Below is a picture of us, its one of my faves.

I took a flight and visited Rome! It was the most beautiful place i have ever been. The arcutecture on all the buildings was something else. I have to say the driving in Rome is absolutely mental, we arrived off the place made it to a taxi and within 20 minuets I witnessed 2 car crashes!! There aren't any rules on the road I don't think because my god they was literally speeding about and cutting each other up left right and centre. I came back a much calmer driver I reckon as English driving is nothing compared to that .
Our hotel was lovely, we was out the way but perfect walking distance to most of the attractions in Rome.

First day we took a walk to Castle Sant' Angelo which was amazing.

The next day we went to the colosseum which was the most mind boggling thing ever. It was gigantic!! To think the story's that took place there and to imagine what it must have been like is crazy. Most of it has fallen away now but even the structure being there makes you realise what a strong piece of artwork it really is. The photos do it no justice is actually huge!!!

I'll never forget it.

2015 also saw me lose someone very close to me, my Nan. She was the most wonderful, courageous, beautiful person I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. Her smile was enough to light up a room and her laughter and jokes would have had anyone in stitches. The world lost a diamond but I know that heaven would have gained an angel. Words can not describe how much that lady meant to me but I know she knew it right till the very end.

To be honest, 2015 has been one of the best years of my life to date. It's been spent with some of the most precious and special people in my life and I wouldn't have had it any other way. The people that didn't make it into 2015's memories I've realised are the people that just aren't worth it. As you get older you really do realise who your real friends are. I know right now I have all the people I need and if I only have a handful that will do me just fine.

Thanks for reading. D xxx
