2nd August, 2016

What’s been happening this month? July has been an action-packed month, and a mixed bag of highs and lows. Early in the month my Nan sadly passed away. Although she’d had some health problems for a while it did come as a bit of a shock as she had seemed to be on the mend. […]

Monthly Re-cap: January 2016

30th January, 2016

I’ve never written one of these monthly summary posts before but I enjoy reading them on other blogs, plus I figured it would allow me to document some of the things I get up to that I maybe wouldn’t dedicate an entire blog post to. Let’s see if I can keep these going throughout the […]

A look back on 2015
