2015 in pictures

Happy New Year’s Eve everybody. Last year was the first year I did a ‘year in pictures’ recap post. I loved putting it together – who doesn’t love an excuse to look through all their pictures and reminisce about the year gone by? I’ve done it again this year, with a picture for every month of 2015. So here it is, my year in pictures.


We said hello to 2015 in Port Patrick with 12 of our friends. It was an amazing way to welcome the new year.

Lunch at the Kitchin

In February we celebrated 10 years of being a couple with lunch at The Kitchin.

Huevos rancheros waffles

In March I discovered that putting Huevos Rancheros on top of waffles is one of the best things. Ever.


In April we celebrated our first wedding anniversary. We had dinner at The Balmoral, where we got married, and relived the most wonderful day.

York 1

In May we spent a weekend in York. I love York it’s such a great city, with so much to see and do. I also ran my first half marathon in May but I decided to spare you the horribly sweaty picture of me crossing the finish line.

Rye bread with houmous and a fried egg

June was a pretty quiet month, with Rob and I both in the throws of new jobs, so although blog posts were few and far between, I spent a little more time on Instagram, where photographing my breakfast seemed to be a theme.

Floors castle 1

In July we picked up our new car and spent most weekends on road trips. One of those days out took us down to the Scottish Borders, where we visited Floors Castle. It was a great day out.

Madeira food 5

August was all about spending a week lying in the sun in Madeira doing nothing. We also went to Belmond Reid’s Palace for cocktails. It was a lot of fun.

Arthur's Seat 6

The weather in Scotland has been appalling this year but in September we got a rare beautiful day. The best place to take in the city on a day like that is by climbing to the top of Arthur’s Seat. It was so windy at the top, hence the windswept look, but that’s what I love about this photo.


In October I went to see one of my best friends in Wick and we took a trip to Reiss beach. It’s one of the prettiest places I’ve seen in Scotland.

Copenhagen 14

November was all about Copenhagen. We loved the city so much we spent most of our time there discussing the possibility of moving there. Watch this space.

Blueberry, oat and fromage frais smoothie 1

In December I fought (and lost) the battle against healthy eating. I tried, in vain, to get back into clean eating but all the rich foods and chocolate won out. I’ll get back into a better way of living in January.

So that was my 2015. Not quite as big a year as 2014, but it was great fun nonetheless. Next year, we’re putting our flat on the market in February, heading to Venice in March and have two weddings in the diary, which means it looks like it’s going to be another busy year.

Whatever you’re doing to welcome 2016 have a great time. And Happy New Year to you all, I look forward to catching up with you all next year.
