2014

Happy New Year! I hope you’re all well and sans any major hangovers. I slept through New Years celebrations so, yeah, party animal right here. I’m greeting 2014 with open arms because, in short, 2013 went down as the shittest year on record. My dad passed away in September after his lymphoma relapsed and, if that wasn’t bad enough, my aunt recently passed away after suffering a ruptured aneurysm on Christmas day. It’s been a rough couple of months but I’m hopeful that 2014 will be much kinder and brighter. Here’s to health, happiness, and making memories.

      Thanks Helena. I'm getting the general vibe from a lot of people that 2013 was either a great one or a shit one. No real middle ground :/

      Thanks Merowyn. I didn't put it up on any social media as I'm not much of a sharer when it comes to these things. We're all doing okay, considering. Although it still all feels weird. x
