Where did it go? Just whoosh!! Gone. And good riddance.
But looking back through my photos I realise that although the events that hit the headlines dominated and soured the year, on a personal level I enjoyed holidays and acheivements which I can remember fondly.
Here’s a whip through my year
Flooding continued in the South West. Family visit Bath. A hen do in Sheffield with magical snowfall.
Lois and Tom get married in Beverley, Chinese New Year in Bristol, my birthday at The Lanes-bowling and dancing and pizza! I set up a studio space to paint. I apply for a job which I eventually get. We see Propellor at The Egg.
Mum’s birthday, job interview, a weekend at Blenheim with friends. I start my new job as Visual Merchandiser for Rossiters.
London again, decorating Matt’s bathroom (hardly a highlight but enjoyable nonetheless). Sheffield for Rob’s Belgian themed birthday complete with a waffle mountain and Mannequin Pis. Visit the Industrial Hamlet at Millhouses. Lots of gardening, visits to the studio preparing canvases, walks around Box.
Plenty of painting begun, visit to Cornwall, Lost Gardens of Heligan, mackerel fishing, Lost Fest, Brewery Tour, BBQs and catching up with friends. Flying visit to Devon on the way back from Cornwall.
