What : This is one of many all dayers for the Six Nations. I do stupid poses with shots when I'm drunk, so cool :-/

What : A trip to Cardiff to watch the live screening of Wales v Australia and I met Kam and Sally off the radio! If you aren't from South Wales you may have no idea who they are, but if you live around here I'm sure you will have heard of them.
What : Pre-drinks at mine before heading into Caerleon for Jodie's hen night. The first time I'd done fancy dress in quite a while, felt like a bit of a prat at first but as the drink kicked in I loved it!

What : The My Street Chic Bristol event that took place on Friday. Amazing girls again, amazing cocktails, amazing night. I really loved this and am still buzzing from an amazing weekend. I want to do it all again, now.
I really enjoyed looking back over my year and I hope you did too. I've had some amazing times with some amazing people and this has really made me realise just how lucky I am. If 2012 is anywhere near as good as this it will be good. Hopefully it will be better because it involves my Wedding!
