A good start to the new year (ish?)

Happy 2015!

I hope that this year will be the best yet, and that this will finally be the year I stop accidentally writing 2012 as the date…

I have to admit that during my first day of 2015 (I accidentally write 2013, clearly my brain is trying to work up from 2012) I actually spent it in bed recovering from New Years Eve – and no not hungover, I drank one glass of champagne and then only drank water and coke. It was more the late night and the sofa bed that I was recovering from. But still, the best New Years Eve I’ve ever had πŸ™‚

I was going to write this post yesterday for my usual Wednesday slot however, I have got caught up with all the festivities and ironically discussing my resolutions, instead of writing about them, for the New Year. So anyway, my resolutions this year are:

1. One week in each month I will have a vegetarian diet

2. I will run a mile in under 8 minutes

3. Travel to a place I have never been before

Hope you have a great New Year! πŸ™‚

I write them down in the hope that I can look back in a year and see that I have accomplished them

  1. Exercise more (3 times a week – good idea chum)
  2. Don’t say sorry – basically: don’t do things that you will have to says sorry for later

(I’ll let you know how I get on)

3, 2, 1 Happy New Year

What a year 2013 has been but first, a Christmas update

On the 19th I spent my morning rushing to finish an essay due for 2pm and then in the evening I was in London with some amazing people, celebrating birthdays and having a pre xmas type meal- it was lovely although my phone died at around 6pm and I got home at 2am.. oops


The 20th December consisted of looking after my nephew and we made Christmas cards, however I think I was more into it than he was- none the less, it was fun


Skipping to the 23rd, my sister and I went shopping for presents. We are the type of family that do VERY last minute things. Presents, holidays, road trips, anything – last minute.. but I love it πŸ˜€

During the night it was sooooo windy and I think I slept at like 4am and at 1am there was this huge crash. We woke up in the morning to find that the neighbours (opposite us) their tree had fallen into our front garden.. so the road was closed and we couldn’t turn right from our house.


Christmas eve, I went to the hospital and helped out, was fun and Christmassy and yes chum, the doctor was there again (ahhh). Then in the evening we went to my aunties house as we do every year on the eve.

Christmas day at last! My auntie came over to ours and so did my sister and brother in law. Had a big feast and watched a ton of movies.


Boxing day we went to my other aunties house and played a lot of board games, card games and watcher Arthur Christmas.

27th – Hyde Park – winter wonderland


28th – My mums birthday, we had brunch in Windsor and then shopped and chilled

Went to Bedford on 30th – visited some family friends and then went to Go Outdoors and I bought some furry wellington boots (sooooo warm chum, soo warm)

NYE at the temple, same every year but I like knowing that I ended my year in p

rayer and started my year with a prayer. Couldn’t think of anywhere else to be..

New years day was the day we all planted ourselves on the sofa to watch movies until 6pm when we had guests (shocker). Back on the sofa at 9 and then peeled ourselves of at 2am after watching countless movies (I also started Vampire Diaries this day)


Today is the 2nd and although I wanted to change this year and do so much more, I haven’t and I get it, its just the first few days, I doesn’t even feel like a new year or a different year at that, just feels like life is carrying on. It does make me realise how time flies and truly does not wait for anyone.

I hope you had an amazing Christmas and a wonderful New Year and we shall see each other soon chum

Love ya Diljot x

My First…

Why hello there chum – long time no type!

Christmas was great with amazing food and lovely presents. I saw my relatives on two different days and both were good to see everyone. I love my presents – i now have Β£30 of itunes vouchers burning a hole in my pocket so if you have any songs etc to suggest please tell me!

HAPPY NEW YEAR! You sound as if yours was more interesting than mine – but I saw fireworks on the beach which was pretty πŸ™‚ mum and dad then went straight to sleep which was boring so i ended up watching tv and youtube vlogs (as usual) but it got me thinking about all of the firsts of the new year. I don’t know if this has been done before but i’ve thought of some questions about all the firsts in 2014. Its like the firsts tag but a new years special πŸ™‚

1. First youtube video watched – John’s video on vlogbrothers why 2014 might be the best year ever. It was quite uplifting (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oUhA6fjgnLY)

2. First tv episode watched – I ended up watching the Top Gear Polar Challenge because I wanted to see snow x)

3. First film watched – I have yet to watch a film actually… suggestions? oh! I watched Wreck it Ralph the other day how cute is that film!

4. First outfit worn – a very boring one. jeans and a grey top and a very warm jumper.

5. First meal eaten – cheerios!

6. First thought of the new year – “ooh pretty fireworks”

7. First hug – from my mum

8. First happy new year text received – from my friend’s mum (although it was from the whole family its not weird ahah)

9. First happy new year text sent – A mass message sent to 8 people x) yeah *cough* chum you got a message 20 mins later.. I didnt have 3g or wifi for whatsapp to work sorry! Boy i feel bad now..

10. First place visited – well I visited Aldeburgh for new years so Aldeburgh

11. First book read – the final chapter of a Discovery of Witches… again

12. First time you have written the new date – yet to do so but i still write 2012 on dates so its not looking good aha

If you can think of any others just add them on πŸ™‚

I hope your okay chum and that this new year brings joy, prosperity and merriment!
