Despite all the build up, Christmas seemed to be over in the blink of an eye and we are now well into January 2013! Having said that, looking through these photos and putting this blog post together has reminded me what a great month December was.

Since graduating, we've not always had much time to see each other, but with Christmas coming up, me and my old uni friends made a real effort to meet up and enjoy some festive food and drinks together. I thoroughly enjoyed our roast duck and it was great to catch up with everyone (some of whom I haven't seen for over a year)!

I also packed my bags and headed back to Birmingham for some quality time with the family. Whilst there, I made the most of what Birmingham had to offer, and spent a lovely afternoon browsing the German Christmas market and doing some last minute shopping in the Bullring.

Sadly, it's now time to face the real world, and I'll be heading back down to London later this week. January promises to be another exciting month though, and I'm very much looking forward to seeing what 2013 has in store for us all!

Did you have a good Christmas break? Have you made any exciting plans for 2013?
