Same time next year...

Ok so this time last year I posted my aims for the coming year, 2011

1. Party more
2. Visit New York
3. Get fit
4. Have an adventure
5. See the Northern Lights
6. Move out of my parents house
7. Appear in an episode of Dr Who ( looks like fun!)
8. Reach 200 followers on this blog (too ambitious?)
Turns out I didn't do too well, so we'll try again for 2012... hmmmmm
I definitely partied more, moving out of my parents house and into central London helped that, so maybe now I should calm it down and get on with something else.
1. Find a new job (I will be officially funemployed from 10th January and whilst I can't wait for a break, I do think maybe I will be needing a new job as soon as my last paycheck runs out...the idea of working freelance for a couple of months has brought out an uncontrollable desire to spend for some reason)
2. Visit New York
3. Blog more
4. See the Northern Lights
5. Get fit and drink more water
6. Launch Chariteatowel and raise a lot of money for Raise The Roof Kenya/SMA Trust
7. Star in a music video
8. Have fun

That should do for a year...
Any further suggestions are warmly appreciated 

Let me know if you have set any good resolutions or goals for next year, I might want to steal them... thanks

If ever I need some encouragement... channel my inner Leigh Lezark - hellooooo Rooney Mara!

here she is pre-The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
Sweet (too sweet?), pretty girl...though to be honest nothing to make her stand out

December 2010 

Here she is after a few bottles of black hair dye, a radical couture wardrobe makeover and some quirky make up choices...


What a difference a year makes!
