I feel like I say this every year, but 2020 was (genuinely) the craziest year I’ve lived through so far. And even though I know 2021 is probably not going to be much different, I can’t wait for that fresh start.
January & February
Not much happened during the first two months of the year – looking back now, I didn’t fully appreciate how we were still able to go out and see friends!
Beginning of March, I finally graduated from university! And after that, the year got a whole lot worse as Covid-19 really started to hit the UK.
I was also featured on the TEFL Academy’s Instagram page as a brand ambassador – so cool!
As the weather was getting better, I wanted to be able to sit outside. Got some garden furniture, pretty lights and candles, and made it all cosy.
I redid my bedroom and (after nearly 9 months) finally turned it into a place that I enjoy being in. (Just another lockdown-project.)
Finished my Yoga Teacher Training and celebrated my 25th birthday!
I spent quite a few days in the car, just driving around England, and enjoying the sun.
In August, we had a few weeks where the weather was extremely hot. So I drove down to Ashford in Kent and spend a few days in a hotel room with air conditioning, and on the beach.
Kids back to school after a good five months of being at home. Mostly remember how hard it was to get them back.
Halloween! My boyfriend and I went to Bournemouth with two other friends to celebrate our anniversary. While we were there, the second lockdown was announced, so we made the most of that last weekend out.
Also opened my Etsy store this month!
An entire month under lockdown, but not as bad as the first one since the kids were still going to school, and my boyfriend could still come over. It felt more like normal life.
Christmas tree went up also went up at the beginning of the month – getting into the festive spirit.
My highlight for December? Bridgerton on Netflix, quite possibly my favourite show of the year.
And celebrating Christmas with my boyfriend, followed by a few days of New Years-prep.
What were your highlights in 2020?
