2015 didn't start well, here is the last ever picture I have of my Mum taken by one of the staff who very kindly made sure we had a copy. Mum went down with a cold soon after which turned into pneumonia.

It was hard to pick yourself up, especially in April was the anniversary of Dad's passing.

But this cheeky chap helped us through the year with a happy smile we celebrated his second Birthday.

A family day with any of our five families who could make it and some good old fashioned games, egg and spoon and  human wheelbarrows!!!!!

A surprise 70th Birthday party.

A Wedding.

So what has 2016 has in store for us. Our holiday in Tossa de Mar is booked, we have an afternoon tea at the Ritz to book. I plan to join a Slimming World meeting, hopefully I can get my diet head back on.  Also I'm going to be a much better blogger.

Wishing Everyone
Happy New Year
