Best bits of 2011: Part 1

This year has flown by and I'm in such a different place that I expected to be at the start of year. 2011 is definitely going down in the records as a great year for our little family and over the next few days I'll be doing a run down of the 12 best things that happened this year in a very rough chronological order.

Moving to London

Although I technically moved down to London in September 2010 I still had a part-time job up in Huddersfield so it wasn't until March that I secured a full time position in the big smoke and stayed here 24/7.

Absolutely one of the best moves of my life and although I miss some of my brilliant friends that I made at work, I have loved exploring London and being close to the friends who have lived down here for the past few years. Better yet, it was the commitment to Sam that our relationship needed to take it to the next level, but that is the subject of another post entirely!

My new full time job also introduced me to the world of fundraising. Sam and I collected on the Saddleworth Beer Walk in June and then I was part of a team that climbed the equivalent height of Mount Everest in a day.
