I was going to write loads, but looking back over my photos I'll just leave it to them to tell the story....
|It snowed a lot in January, and was very very cold.|
|I went to an outdoor concert in -13 degree weather!|
|I turned 30 and celebrated by having the flu.|
|Amongst all the cool things I got for my birthday, this was possibly the most awesome!|
|We adopted this little monster and named her Zelda. As you do.|
|I started my first job in Vienna - the view outside the office on my first day.|
It appears nothing noteworthy happened in March.
|My hair went from this....|
|And then to this!|
|It snowed some more in April|
|The Beard and I went to see Eels...|
|And I saw Killswitch Engage|
I also handed in my thesis (3 days early for the first time in my life), and unfortunately the Beard's father died.
|Mum came to visit for a weekend and we drank Pimms and gin in the park|
|We had to go to Sweden to cremate The Beard's father, but the weather there was stunning.|
|Look what I found in the Systembolaget!|
|I went to Innsbruck for the conference I organised for over 100 people from 50 countries....|
|The meeting was a roaring success!|
|We took some time off after the meeting to spend with friends from Sweden...|
|Which of course meant breakfast at Schwarzenburg.|
|I went to the UK and drank Swedish Cider.|
|And went to the Speedway GP in Cardiff with my family.|
|We went to a really nice proper pub in the English countryside for a nice roast dinner of Cornish lamb (we weren't in Cornwall)|
|Back in Vienna, we watched the Sweden football team fan club march from Schwedenplatz to the stadium for the first leg of their World Cup qualifier. We watched it at a friend's house. Sweden lost..|
So that was the first 6 months of my 2013. Stay tuned for part 2!
