2013 in pictures

I almost didn’t do my usual photo round-up this year (hence the last-minuteness!) because in a lot of ways this has been a very hard, unhappy year. We’ve had all sorts of upheaval from Yoni getting sick to family illness, relationship breakdowns and deaths. But looking back through my year of photos was actually a positive experience. Despite some really crappy low points, I did manage to fit in four holidays, a lot of crafting and sewing, gigs, more work on the house and plenty of other fun things. Still, I can’t say I am sad to see the back of it and hope that 2014 is altogether calmer. Anyway, here are my favourite photos from each month.

January: a chilly but lovely weekend in Brighton for my birthday. (For my birthday this year we’ve just booked to go to the slightly warmer Tel Aviv, so excited!)

February: A dressmaking class at Ray Stitch which kickstarted an absolute passion for sewing that’s lasted all year.

March: BARBADOS. Without a doubt the highlight of the year, a simply amazing holiday with my lovely family.

April: Efterklang gig

May: Fun/weird trip to Dungeness and Rye for ATP

June: we pimped up the garden in the sunshine

July: A bittersweet (in retrospect) trip to Devon

August: Yoni back outside again after his accident. He’s just got the all-clear on his heart from the vet which was great news to end the year on.

September: Enjoying the yums at Street Feast

October: a much-needed superb holiday to New York

November: we visited the TFL Acton Depot

December: V&A Friday Lates

You can see all my years of photo roundups since 2009 here. I’m glad I kept up my little tradition after all.
Wishing you all a happy and healthy new year.
