A Very Busy January

Happy New Year.... I'm engaged!

So far it's been a very busy year. We spent our New Year in London which was amazing, I've been to London a few times but never really got to see everything it had to offer. We checked out the play Wicked in Westend, did a huge market tour Billingsgate fish market & The Borough Market. Anyone who comes to London should check both out simply impressive. Oh for all those single girls out there, London pubs are full of men we went to a pub in the Borough market and I was the only girl in the pub! Coming from Halifax where the ratio is pretty bad I thought you girls out there might appreciate this. hee hee

We came home from London and headed up to Barrow in Furness, Cumbria for Stella's 60th birthday party. They put an awesome party together for her, the entire family worked so hard. I'm so thankful for my friends in the North... Good times with great friends!

Our third weekend in January off to Portsmouth, we go for another fun weekend with our fellow Canadian friends... R &C are having a party get your dancing shoes on... I love spending time at their "Estate" it's such an great property and Lee on the Solent is right beside the Ocean which I miss often living in Bristol. We all went out for a Sunday hike at West Wittering Beach the snow has all melted and it was wet but the sun was out and it was 12 degrees and people were in shorts having BBQ's tailgate style. I also love these small little huts that they have along the beach. I'm not sure if they are rented or owned but they are fun. The next day Cara & I went shopping in South Hampton because that is where we ended up. Sometimes the GPS takes us on a tour. ha ha! We love spending time in Portsmouth Cara and Rob are super hosts!

I'm back in Bristol now enjoying my pilates classes and time with Steve but not for long we are off to "America" for the weekend to meet up with Tegan & Greg aka G&T for some shopping, drinking, bowling & rollerskating fun. Then Monday we go to London again for a swankafied week at the Royal Horse Guard Hotel.... Super excited
Looking forward to friends and family coming in February to finally sit down and plan this wedding... I'm really stuck on the where, where, where ....
