1. February uniform. There has been a distinct lack of frosty weather so this is my uniform for battling the wind and rain that has not left us alone. I’m so glad I bought this coat from Mango months ago because I think I might actually start making money on the cost-per-wear soon. Spring – I am ready for you.
2. Sunday roast dinners. We discovered the best pub for roast dinners and as much as it doesn’t look it from this photo, everything on that plate was delicious. And if a rainy February was made for anything, it was for Sunday roast dinners.
3. Sochi 2014! I expressed my love of Sochi here and much of February has been spent watching as many winter sports as possible, regardless of whether I have a clue how you win or not. New favourite sports: snowboard cross and speed skating.
4. Rock climbing. My boyfriend and I took a rock climbing course in February. It was great for fitness, but having the upper body strength of a kitten may have possibly held me back. Nothing a bit of more climbing couldn’t cure.
5. Priscilla: an Englishwoman in Wartime France by Nicholas Shakespeare. This is the true life story of Priscilla, written by her nephew after he unearthed diaries, letters and memoirs in family belongings. The book charts her childhood, friendships and romances as she hides in wartime France (as the title might give away!). The end is set out quite clearly at the start so there are no great conclusions, but her story is pretty sad and gripping.
6. Valentines Day. Always low key, but I am happy with any event which involves a 3D sheep card.
7. In a bid to fill the void that Breaking Bad has left, we’ve caught up with Walking Dead. This has brought about a bit of a miracle and we’re now watching it at the same time as the rest of the country. This never happens.
8. Surprise ghost walks. Actually, it was less of a ghost walk and more of an after dark tour of famous old city sites and crimes scenes.Sochi 2014 photo courtesy of www.teamgb.com
