Here's looking at ya 2013 ...
January - April
I tend to forget about the first few months of the year, retreating to my bed and semi-hibernating away from the cold outside, dreaming of the warmer weather to come. Memories of January through to April include: a day at the museum, sitting cross-legged on the floor of wallpapered rooms listening to hauntingly beautiful music, meeting new friends, a day trip to London, photographing butterflies, hiking in Todmorden on my best friend's birthday and freezing cold local walks.
May - August
My favourite time of year; blossom littering the trees, ice lollies stickily melting in your hands, the intense summer heat. There are too many memories to mention but highlights include: Sounds From the Other City, lounging in my friend's garden with delicious food and friendly cats, our French road trip, hazy summer days spent with friends in meadows and discovering lakes, a fun afternoon in Hebden Bridge, my Berlin adventure, my birthday trip to the Lake District and my birthday garden party.
September - December
The nights get closer, the air gets crisper and the scenery turns a breathtaking fusion of burnt hues - ahhh Autumn. My favourite autumnal memories include: family fun day at The Whitworth with the most beautiful babies, a trip to Kirkby Lonsdale, Carefully Planned Festival, walks walks and more walks, a visit to London, house parties, exploring abandoned buildings and Christmas parties.
Here's to 2014!
