Highlights of 2012

I'm a very reflective person by nature.  In teaching this is undoubtedly a good thing, but in life I can drive myself, and others, a little mad.  So before I move forward into 2013 proper by going back to Spain and work, let's just have a little look back at some of the high points of 2012.

Holidays played a big part in making 2012 so amazing.  We went to Sharm el Sheikh as a family, I then headed to Marbella to meet up with Rich, I visited Valencia to see where we'd be living, went to the West coast of Scotland to visit family and then spent some time in the South East and attended the Olympics.  Oh and we even fitted in a trip to Barcelona in December.

Whilst in Egypt, I finally conquered my fear of snorkelling!

Puerto Banus on the Marbella holiday.

The first of many visits to the beach in Valencia.

Not quite as hot as Valencia but our day on the beach in Troon with my family, was amazing.

London 2012- an unforgettable time.

It might have been a little chilly but Barcelona didn't disappoint.

So holiday wise, 2012 was amazing.  We even fitted in a little trip to the Warner Brothers Studio tour back in June.

Mmm butterbeer.

It seems a long time ago now but one of the major highlights of 2012 has to be qualifying as a teacher.

And then of course there was the big move.  August 25th came round, we jumped on the plane and moved to Valencia.  We found a lovely apartment, I started work and explored the city.  Now we live just round the corner from this.

So here's hoping that 2013 will be half as good as 2012!

What are your highlights of 2012? 


  1. So glad to see its been a lovely year! Im so jealous of where you live now it looks amazing! To wake up to that and the weather sounds brilliant! Hope your new job is good aswell!!

  2. Such a fab year, you visited so many places. I also have a bit of a fear of snorkling! Will try it out on my honeymoon, then possibly try scuba diving which I am even more scared about!
