Me and Mine – December 2018

It’s been ages since I’ve published a Me & Mine post, in fact it’s a whole year ago!  I can’t believe I haven’t shared a family photo since December last year!  I’m sure there must be some hiding somewhere on my blog and that perhaps I’ve just not written a Me & Mine update – either way this is something I need to rectify.  I guess I just got out of the habit, which is all well and good in terms of the writing but what it really means is that I’ve lost a year of documenting us as a family – of making sure I take those photos.  This is definitely something I need to fix in the coming year.  Realistically I know I’m unlikely to manage a family photo every month of the year but I do intend to prioritise this and share more with you!

This month’s photos were taken on our traditional new year trip to Heaton Park – we always go on New Year’s Eve and take an updated set of family photos, in fact facebook memories informed me that this was our fifth annual visit.
