Happy New Year! I hope everyone has a happy and peaceful 2017. Congratulations to Ellie n Ash and Denyse n Stephen who got engaged over Christmas.

2016 was a strange year, I loved getting together with family and friends at both my sister-in-law’s and our weddings in the spring. Huge thanks to Gareth for a moving speech and being the best ‘bestman’. Huge love and appreciation to my Mum and Dad without whom a wedding would not have been possible (and for childcare, babysitting, Christmas treats and general awesomeness). We really did have a lovely time, Sarah and Johnny’s wedding was even featured in ‘Roll n’ Roll Bride’ Magazine. The hen do’s were fabulous too. We have had some lovely breaks both in Washington, Battle and Cornwall. It was Jules and Ev’s 50th and Gym’s 60th this year. Granddad Brian returned to England from Majorca. We visited family in Birmingham at Christmas and in East Grinstead where we ate gorgeous meals and drunk fizz. The girls Lily and Poppy have gone from strength to strength, they are happy and cheeky most of the time. We are so lucky to have so many wonderful friends.

2016 does seem to have been full of depression, tragedy and unhappy events. Sending love and hugs across the continents to Richard.

I really hope 2017 will be better!
