It's that time of year when everyone becomes obsessed with 'reflecting over the past year'. TV is overloaded with 'The Best of' programmes, and papers and websites dedicate pages to celebrity, news and film highlights. So, at the risk of being predictable, I thought I would end the year with my own little 'Secret Life' overview. As I pulled together some photos of my adventures, which only started halfway through 2015, I can see how people get so involved in this practice of nostalgia. I couldn't help but smile at what I had done, from new artistic skills like graffiti painting and dress making to pursuits which have become part of my life such as paddle boarding or singing. Not forgetting the public treasures which London holds, but which I had never yet visited, such as the British Museum, Wigmore Hall, and the amazing Neasden Temple. I thought this was a blog post best illustrated in pictures rather than words, so below is my little Secret Life collage.
Also fitting with year end tradition, I am already plotting more adventures for 2016, including the launch of a new facet to the Secret Life, so keep reading next year for more information on that....
Happy new year friends and fellow adventurers!
