New things, old things and inbetween things.

Today is my last day of being 25. I’m not too sure how I feel about it.

I’ve only been back in the country since Sunday – having spent two weeks in Dubai with the manfriend’s family. If it wasn’t for the calendar and paper hats you could have been forgiving for forgetting it was Christmas.

I’ll be over the hump of mid 25’s, not over the hill because that’s too negative.

I see it more like entering the shady side, the side Simba and Mufasa would view with curious suspicion from the top of the nearest vantage point. It feels a bit rebellious entering and hopefully it won’t be hyenas laughing when I do.

This is a bit of a tidy up post I suppose. Boxing up 2013, putting a label on it and putting it in the loft for later. Making space for the new things if you will.

Here’s to 2014!
