2015 through Instagram

  

(Oh no not another one of those ‘Year in Review’ posts…) Once the last of the turkey has been carved up and slapped into stuffing and cranberry sandwiches (oh yes…) it’s inevitable that all focus turns towards the New Year and the one just gone. This time last year I wasn’t particularly enthused about 2015. After two difficult years I couldn’t see how the next year would be any different, but 2015 blew all others out of the water and turned out to be a defining year. πŸ™‚
