So that was 2016

Almost reached the end of 2016. Sigh. It has been a full year.

Looking back at the photos, I’ve taken this year, I am amazed at how much we have done, how much we have achieved and the places we have been. Darn it. It does make it difficult to decide which photo to choose for each month of my 2016 mosaic.

We’ve added many more “firsts” to our family history, with so many wonderful memories created on the way. Not everything has been rosy, but when is it ever?

Already my list of items, I want to tick off in 2017, is growing. I see more sewing, making and cooking from scratch on the horizon. Theatre trips. Learning. A few other activities to push me, for one, out of my comfort zone. Watch this space!

Good-bye old year, but I cannot leave 2016 without thanking all the readers who visit my blog. To all you wonderful people who pop in to visit this space, I am as ever humbled, that you stop by and read about our adventures. Thank you. You really make my day, each and every time. I love reading your comments. I hope 2017 brings you, and yours, all the happiness you could desire.
