Goodbye 2013

2013 has been another eventful year.

It was the year:

my son, Joe, turned 18;

my daughter, Briony, turned 16 and enjoyed her Prom;

Joe sat his A-levels and left to study at university in Leeds;

Briony sat her GCSEs and left school to study at sixth form college;

my youngest son was named 'Batsman of the Year' at his cricket club;

my eldest son, Sam graduated from university and gained his first teaching job;

my mum turned 70 (and it would have been her Golden Wedding had my dad still been alive);

all six of us enjoyed a family holiday together in one of our favourite Spanish campsites near Barcelona.

Who knows what 2014 will bring?

I wish all my readers a happy and healthy New Year and hope you find the time and space to make many happy memories.
