Best thing: The wonderfully eccentric London Library.

Best completely miscellaneous thing: Jen Olsen’s astronomical clock in Copenhagen Town Hall, we stumbled across it looking for something else, it's amazing.

Stupidest decision: I preference bad decisions over stupid ones.

Best flashback: I went to a family wedding in August back in the old country, my mum bought me a Walnut Whip in a shopping mall in Milton Keynes. I felt for a minute, like I was 10 again.

Sad goodbyes: Jackie my gran’s dog, I’m not a particularly spiritual person, but I always felt that after gran died she left a bit of herself behind in Jackie. 

Exciting hellos: I’ve met some really interesting people this year, from all over.

Best triumphs:  I’ve shown my work in five countries this year, which I’m very happy about

Happiest moments: I spent the European summer on a residency at the ZK/U center in Berlin, it was fantastic.

Greatest win for everyone: The EU finally taking measures to look out for Bees.

What are you most looking forward to in 2014?: Next year is very much an unknown quantity, either way it's going to be memorable.
