2016 in pictures

When I was thinking about where I am (as described in lots of detail yesterday), I sort of thought I hadn’t done a lot in 2016. Then I scrolled through my phone gallery. And blimey, I did quite a bit of stuff! And took way too many pictures. And let too many babies figure out selfies. Edited highlights in vague chronological order below.

Hair cut! Only one in 2016, weirdly. Must do better.

Had a big work launch thing in November, then celebrated late into the night. This marks the moment in 2016 when I got quite ill, from which I’ve only just recovered.

I bought an Amazon Echo. I love it. Plus, Christmas started happening.

Ended the year with lovely people at Christmas, which is how it should be, right?

Takeaways from all this? I did a lot more than I realised. And I really like wearing stripy tops. In conclusion,considering the trifle of 2016. Photos good. Fun good. Meat good. What’s not to like?
