Happy New Year everyone! It’s officially January, the time of year when everyone is briefly super motivated to do all the things they’ve been meaning to do, like get fit and quit smoking/drinking/chewing their nails! Not that I can really say anything: I’m one of the worst people for getting that ‘New Year, new me’ buzz, and then having let it all fall by the wayside by the time February rolls in. Most years since starting this blog I’ve written a New Year’s resolution post, and I’ll be the first to admit, I haven’t always stuck with them. That’s why… Read more »

Happy New Year everyone! So here we are: 2018! I always find the start of a new year a strange combination of slightly depressing, yet wonderfully hopeful. Yes, the festive season is over, and everything is going back to normal, but at the same time the year is stretching out ahead, and it feels as if anything could happen. Maybe this will be the best year yet? I’m definitely feeling pretty motivated right now anyway, although I get this way every New Year and end up making a ridiculous amount of resolutions that I’ll have forgotten about by February. That’s… Read more »
Merry Christmas everyone! I hope you all have a wonderful day, and a Happy New Year!
Happy New Year everyone! Despite the festivities that generally accompany the start of a New Year, I personally tend to find it quite a depressing time of year. It signifies yet another year gone by, and often there’s that feeling of ‘how the hell is it that time of year again?’ and ‘where has all that time gone?’ It also doesn’t help that January itself can be a somewhat grim month, with the cold, wintery weather not even being offset by the excitement of Christmas on the horizon. However, there are also a lot of positives to starting a New Year,… Read more »
2016 is rapidly drawing to a close, and as a whole, I think the world will breath a huge sigh of relief when 2017 dawns! It’s been a strange and turbulent year, from the huge shocks that were Brexit and Donald Trump becoming President, to the horrible acts of violence you see everyday on the news and a multitude of sad and shocking celebrity deaths. However, all that comes as a strange contrast to me, as on a personal level this has been a pretty good year. There have been ups and downs, and a lot has changed for me this year,… Read more »
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to everyone!
Happy New Year’s Eve everyone! I always seem to have really mixed feelings about the New Year: on one hand it’s slightly depressing as a marker of how fast time is flying by (I can still remember the change of the millenium – I was only seven at the time, but still! How the hell is it almost 2016!?), whilst there’s also a certain positivity attached to it through the promise of a fresh start and new beginnings. This year is the same as ever, as I feel slightly reluctant to let go of what was a pretty good year… Read more »
The end of 2015 is quickly creeping up on us, so I thought I’d take the time to reflect over the past 12 months of blogging and do a quick round up of some of my favourite books I’ve read this year, and some of my favourite posts I’ve written (plus a few blogs I’ve loved reading this year!). I’ll be doing a New Year’s Resolution post on Thursday (New Year’s Eve) as well, but I thought it would be better to use an entire post to look back at the year that has gone (and absolutely flown by if you… Read more »
A very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all my lovely Boats Against The Current readers. Have a wonderful day, and a great 2016!
Now here’s an interesting question: where the hell has 2015 gone? Is it just me who feels like last Christmas was literally a few weeks ago and gets a massive shock when they realise the next one is quite literally staring them in the face? Where did all that time go? Where did January go? And February? And all those other months? How is it now December? The oddest thing is that so much has happened this year, that it should really feel like a lifetime since last year, but it doesn’t. So much has changed, yet it still seems to have… Read more »
