It’s a New Year…

Yes, I know we’re already almost a week into 2017, and this blog post might have been better if it was posted, say, last week. But I’ve been really busy, and now I need closure on the year that was 2016, so screw you and your judgemental opinions! Here’s a rundown of my last year. Month. By. Month…


In true Demeter style (I’ll try to refer to myself less in the third person this year, promise), I started the year off in a sling. Typical. I also went to Hawaii in January, so it wasn’t all bad…

This month is really just a big blur… I probably just slept through it, to be honest.


I had shoulder surgery (again) to hopefully fix my dodgy shoulder for good this time!

I was made redundant (well, look at that – there really is a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow…) and I celebrated my birthday – in a sling. For the second consecutive year.

Still slingin’ it…


I started working as a freelance journalist, which has been interesting… Not having a steady income has been bad. But finally getting that whole work/life balance thing down has been good.


Lots of physiotherapy on my shoulder. And sleep.


See July.


I announce I’m moving to the USA after qualifying for a Green Card… Shit just got real.


This month was really just one big farewell party. Oh, and my sister turned 30, so more parties…

I flew to America with my mum in tow and proceeded to set myself up for a life in sunny California.

Turns out California isn’t so sunny after all… Also, it’s cold! Why is it so cold here?! My friend, Cathie flies into LA and spends Christmas and New Years with me. In return, I show her the sights and let her use up all my toilet paper.

I have no idea what 2017 will bring, but so far it’s been interesting… Here’s hoping for a happy new year! xx
