This last year has been a little crazy and hectic at times. I am coming to the end of my year as the President of our Ballroom and Latin society, and I will definitely miss it! But I won't necessarily miss *all* of the organisation that has gone along with it.
Since November we have hosted our own competition in Southampton, and then attended 6 competitions across the country; in Bath, Norwich, Bristol, Farnborough, a weekend in Blackpool, back to Bristol again.
I personally chaired the organisation of the competition in Farnborough where we had over 500 competitors come together for a jam packed day of competing. But it was a thorough success! =)

But all the effort and more than a dose of stress definitely all paid off and we had 3 fabulous looking routines, and we got the chance to showcase our ballroom properly for the first time in PureDance!
I also have made myself another latin dress, which I will post all about soon hopefully.
On a non-dancing note (mostly only now that the dancing has quietened down) I am starting to focus back on the house and having a real purge of stuff in the house; clothes, books, old notes, cooking equipment, I'm planning on going through all of it and making sure it's all much better organized and that in general I just have less stuff.
I completed painting the lounge (a while back now really...) but I think it looks soooo much nicer now, definitely more inviting.
Hopefully I will get back into the swing of blogging again more regularly now.
