Hello to all my lovely readers.
Well, hasn’t 2016 been a rubbish year! Apart from all of the terrible world events, I’ve personally suffered from a fair amount of loss. This year my wonderful 100 year old grandmother Nellie sadly passed away, closely followed by our cat Merlin and more recently my Uncle Keith. We also had someone crash into our 19 year old car (thankfully not whilst we were in it) which meant that Leah the Kia had to go to the great scrapyard in the sky. It seems like the bad news just hasn’t stopped – my best friend has left her husband, my partners uncle has been diagnosed with dementia, my Auntie has been burgled and all of her sentimental heirlooms have been stolen…I hope there is nothing else to add to this list as I’m aware that 2016 isn’t over yet. Fingers crossed.
Anyway, despite all of this I’m planning a traditional family Christmas at my house with goose, ham and all the trimmings. It will be good for us all, I think. I’ve started well by burning my mince pies, I just hope I don’t ruin dinner on the big day!
I’ll post my final book review of 2016 (and also the final book that I read for the Read Harder Challenge) on Friday, then I’ll make a return to blogging in the New Year.
Merry Christmas to you all, let’s hope for a brilliant 2017!
Thank you for reading,
