52 Lists / Two

Joining in with Ema at Made In Hunters and her 52 Lists project.

This week: List your favourite moments of 2013

You can already read about my perfect day in 2013 here, but these are my favourite 5 perfect moments of the year.

Tuesday 16th April...Getting the phone call offering me my first teaching post. The realisation that I was going to be a proper teacher!

Sunday 14th July...Seeing Karine Polwart, Billy Bragg and Bellowhead at Kew The Music. Warm, sunny evening, picnic, Mum, Dad and Mr P, fantastic music, no worries. I could not have asked for anything more.

Thursday 25th July...Watching my little friend's face as she was presented with her Hansel and Gretel ice cream house at Fortnum and Mason. A face of awe...and soon to be a face of chocolate goo!

Tuesday 13th August...Sunset boat trip around the Farne Islands. Nature at its very best.

Saturday 14th December... Listening to Britten's A Ceremony of Carols at St Paul's Cathedral followed by dinner with my Mum, Dad, Mr P and my great-aunt and -uncle. A perfect pre-Christmas day.

It was so hard to choose them but I felt I needed to pick a range of days across the year and for lots of different reasons. I hope they show the sorts of days and moments that are so important in making me 'me'.


  1. Such nice moments - I love how many of these included your family. I've spent today looking back at last year too and listing my favourite travel moments. Such fun!

  4. You've celebrated some fantastic moments here. That last one - I can't think of anything I'd rather do more at Christmas, it sounds lovely. x

  5. What happy moments! I love how they are spread throughout the seasons. I hope that you make just as many lovely memories in the coming year!
