Oh January, what a month you have been; a mixture of good and bad!

We’re so drilled into thinking January is the most depressing month of the year. I wasn’t depressed this month – I was excited! Excited for the year ahead – I still am.

I woke up on the first day of the year in a hotel spa – not a bad way to start 2014! The only thing I had booked for the day was a 2 hour massage. It did me so much good being away on my own, doing the things I wanted and just stepping away from my life for a bit. I did a lot of reading, planning and thinking. 2013 hadn’t ended the way I wanted it but I was determined to start 2014 my way.

The first thing I did as soon as I got back – before I even got home was to see my friend Sharon. We had a great coffee catch up and planning the year ahead. It was definitely going to be a year of spending time with good friends, that’s for sure!

Sadly, as a family we did receive some bad news. My mum’s cousin had passed away, so that was a very sad time for the family because of how young he was and the circumstances surrounding his death.

The most exciting thing I had planned for January was going to the National Television Awards with some friends. I made sure it wasn’t going to be a work thing, but more of a social thing to take some friends along to. We had great seats and had such a brilliant time.

I don’t make New Year’s Resolutions but one thing I was adamant of doing this year is seeing my friends more and making time for them. Apart from the National TV Awards, I’m pleased to say I managed to meet 3 of my friends for dinner this week. I also got to schedule dinner and movies with my uncle (who is like a dad to me) – the movies didn’t happen because he was too tired. I also got to meet a Twitter friend too. I love meeting people from Twitter as I feel there are so many wonderful people I follow on Twitter and it’s actually good to meet them in the real world!

On the last day of the month, I am going to see my friend Kate to bid her goodbye as she leaves for her new life in Australia. I’m going with my friend Lizzie, so despite being exhausted, I am looking forward to ending the month with good friends!

What else I did this month:
• I bought a car
• A lot of business planning
• Booked myself onto something I find difficult and scary
• Bumped into an old friend on the way to work and she is now helping me with a personal endeavour
• Failed at something I wanted to achieve for a while but picked myself back up and facing it again in February
