2016 in pictures

Cute cat, just because

I missed doing my normal year in pictures review last year because it was generally a pretty terrible year for me personally and I didn’t have much to reflect on positively. I regret not doing it now though, because it’s a nice chance to look back both on the year that’s just happened and find the good even in a bad year, and over every year of my life. I’ve been doing it for seven years now, amazingly.

It’s fair to say that 2016 wasn’t a great year for the world generally (though many good things did happen amongst the horror headlines) but on a selfish note it was much better for me. I managed to do plenty of travelling and fun London things around holding down a full-time job for most of the year, my first after being freelance for the preceding three years. While I didn’t do that much blogging or photography with my real camera, I did manage to dig out a little highlight snap from each month. So here’s a slice of what my year looked like.

January: In what might become a new tradition, I took myself to Brighton for my birthday.

Feburary: A foodie weekend in Paris

March: Ran the Crystal Maze!

April: Got friendly with barn owls at Wildlife Drawing

May: Top eats in London – Padella and Clove Club

June: a jaunt to Sicily

July: A pretty crazy work trip to beautiful Iceland

August: We got a new sofa, which is the love of my life (and animal-approved)

September: We went back to NYC, and upstate to Hudson

October: Saw the Harry Potter play!

November: Silly Hallowe’en costumes

December: Back to Mexico! Which I’m just about to blog about…
