2013 was a bit of an epic. For Jade and I it had just about everything at every end of every scale. It truly was one to remember.

John And Pat’s Diamond Wedding

We loved, we lost, we laughed, we cried, we travelled (not far, just one circumference of the globe), we brought a new house (where we rekindled old friendships and we got neighbours (you know the type you can actually have a chat with and who will take in your parcels when you are not around).

So that’s all great, but why am I starting a blog. In part it’s because I’d like more  tangible evidence of the memories that will be made. To that end, there will be ‘life posts’ a bit like this one. Mainly it’s because one of my resolutions is to write more and to take more photographs. I could ‘just do it’ but I’m not great at that, so I thought a blog would give me structure. I’m going to be using the daily post to guide me. I plan to do both the photo and writing challenges. If you notice me missing any, please shout. That’s assuming anyone is reading this. I hope there is, but that’s not really the point. I’m doing this for me and if you’re reading and enjoy what’s here then great.  Feel free to comment. I won’t be hurt if you don’t like a photo or an article and would love feedback and suggestions on how to improve them.

If you are reading this first post, then I’m going to assume you know me, so won’t write an “about me”, but I will post my resolutions:**update
