A Good Start

After the last post on how horrible 2016 was 
I thought it would be nice to start 2017 on a positive note.

Last weekend saw the three of us, me, hubby and the 'almost not a teenager'
take the train up to York to visit hubby's son P and his partner K.
When I say visit them, I really mean visit our new Grandbaby.

He is such a sweet boy.
Happy to sit on your knee or be passed around.
Happy to watch the world go by and happy to sit in his pram.

Everybody got cuddles but not everyone wanted their photo taking.

I had to content myself with one of all the Lee boys.

Goodbye 2016

Goodbye 2016.
You have been a strange year.

A year of sad times but also happy moments.
A year of upset and re-thinking.
A year of uprooting but not setting down new roots.
A year of unkindness and also unexpected kindness.
A year for crying but also laughing.
A year of loneliness but also of belonging.
A year of starting again but also waiting to start.
A year of feeling loved.

Goodbye 2016.  
I am not sorry to see you go.
