Well it's a brand new year and I'm living in a new country. I think 2007 will be a good one. This past year of 2006 has been a crazy one for me. I've been put so far outside my comfort zone I didn't even know which way was up. I think after almost 10 months of living here in England, I'm just now starting to get comfortable.
Since I arrived in England we've both been so busy settling into our flat, starting new jobs, and getting use to living together. We haven't had alot of time to explore. We've pledged that 2007 will be a travel year and we're going to experience as much as we can. We have to take advantage of our 5 weeks of holidays!
Speaking of such, we've just booked a holiday in April for a week. We're going to Amsterdam and then Brussels in Belgium for a couple days. Sooo excited! It's great because we can fly out of Southampton, thus reducing costs and time to travel to London to fly out.
New Years was a great night. We went round Richard's mates house, Alun. He made some vodka jelly (or as we say and I kept getting corrected, Jell-O) and we played funny drinking games and had a laugh. At the end of the night Rich and I dragged ourselves home and I ended up in bed all day New Years day with a massive hangover. I'm such a light weight now!
Here are some pics from New Years.

This week Rich and I had an anniversary. Neither of us are that big on celebrating anything other then yearly anniversaries...but figured 1 1/2 years together was pretty cool. We've now been together here longer then we did the long distance thing. Worth celebrating. Rich got me some lovely flowers and surprised me when I got home that night.
