A lookback at my 2016

This point in the year is often one of reflection, however I often struggle to remember exactly what I’ve done, achieved or enjoyed.  So this year I thought I’d try and document it, not so much with words but with pictures. So here it is, my 2016.

JANUARY

Got food poisoning before taking my dad to see Mark Cavendish ride at the Revolution Cycling series at the Manchester Velodrome.

I came home to watch the Oscars with my mum and Lizzie, with my fingers crossed that it would finally be Leo’s year, and it was!

So when I look back on 2016 and question, what did I do, it turns out it was quite a lot! In some ways it may not of been everything I hoped for but in some ways it was so much more. So come on 2017, lets see what you’ve got in store, because I’m ready for you.
