Holiday snaps

Tuesday Jan 21, 2014

I went overseas at the end of last year to the UK and France. It was fucking amazing.

it was my father, my sister Sabine and I for 4.5 weeks for my Dad’s birthday. We did London, Bath, Salisbury, York, lakes District, Northern England, Wales, Dublin, Belfast, Scotland, Paris and Normandy.  While travelling with your family is, uh, interesting it was a trip of a lifetime.

When I’m with my family I turn into the jerk younger sister that I am. Considering that Sabine and I had to share rooms and beds for several nights the woman is a saint for not strangling me in my sleep.

Rather than beautiful scenic photos you get the below photos where I pull faces at the camera all over!

Flipping the bird at my sister at the Bronte parsonage.
That place was awesome and sad.

On the Scottish Coast on the drive to Edinburgh. Bitterly cold and blowing a gale.

This is the vending machine outside our hotel rooms in Paris. I put money in for the brownie bites you can vaguely see hanging half way out.
There may have been an unsuccessful shoulder charge and the next day there was this sign.

Resolution

Wednesday Jan 1, 2014

I don’t do resolutions normally because commitment makes me feel a little nauseous. But I’m going to do realistic resolutions this year, including:

1. Read one book at least per month. I can do this easily.
2. Drink more hard liquor! I mean I’m thirty fucking two and all I drink is beer and cider, so this year I’m going to find an adult drink. I’m thinking gin or scotch.
3. I’ll go overseas this year. It’ll probably be close to home after the big trip this year like Fiji or New Zealand but I think doing a trip each year is a good thing.

That’s it. I was going to do uber realistic resolutions like wear pants less but after getting caught by my real estate agent in a forgotten inspection the other day (no pants, no bra, t-Rex t-shirt) I’m not sure that’s wise.

I hope you all had a wonderful New Years x
