When I was younger I wished I had a crystal ball so I would know what was going to happen in the future – mainly whether or not my mum would finally let me have a dog because I was besotted by canines – but also because I am and always have been a chronic planner and over thinker.
As time has progressed I would still like to have that crystal ball – mainly to foresee whether I’ll ever learn how to use a wireless printer – but on the whole I have accepted that life is unpredictable and that’s just how we gonna roll.
But there are a few things I know for certain will happen in 2016;
- I will still kill every plant that comes into my possession because (despite being a veteran member of the school gardening club in year 6-we basically were just free assistance for the janitor to do the weeding) I am not capable and no matter what anyone says cactus are incredibly easy to kill… So in 2016 I’m making a move into hardier plants. The thistle is my first victim.
- I will book flights to New York because it makes my heart soar with joy and I love every minute I spend there and British airways have some tasty-too-good-to-be-true-deals at the moment. Plus my Jo Malone pomegranate noir perfume reminds me SO much of the time I visited for Christmas that I want to sob every time I spritz it and I think bed-partner thinks I’m finally losing the plot.
- Ankle boots are going to make a comeback. I’m sure of it. Well in my wardrobe at least. Because quite frankly I wear trainers so much that my feet have become so precious that even so much as a slight heel makes them throw a massive wobbly and at the age of 24 I can’t resign myself to a lifetime of only being able to wear rubber soled shoes. Ankle boots will be my transitional facilitators back into the realm of shoes that were acceptable before normcore. I will be opting for Chelsea boots in black suede. In case you were interested.
- I will start vlogging… Well perhaps. This one is the most unlikely mainly because killing plants and booking unaffordable holidays comes so naturally to me (#blessed) whereas this requires me to navigate youtube…but at least putting it in writing here makes it 10% more likely due to my crippling inability to not give in to social pressure. BUT U HAVE TO PROMISE you’ll watch. I’ll be sending out written contracts within the hour.
Anyone else got any predictions for the big 2k16 they would like to share with the class?
