A Review of the Year and Lessons Learned in 2023

Here we are again at the end of another year and once again I find myself wondering where the time has gone, but also what I’ve done with this year. Whether it’s getting older, because I’m tired, or because a lot of our excitement happened in the first half of the year, for some reason I’m finding it a lot harder to remember what we’ve done this year.

A Review of the Year and Lessons learned in 2022

Well somehow another year has come and gone, and 2022 certainly seemed to fly by!

A few things I’ve learned from 2018…

2018 was always going to have a lot to live up to. 2017 had involved changing job, moving city and an awful lot of travel. It finished with our incredible trip to New Zealand, and getting engaged, so I was skeptical from the beginning about how 2018 was going to live up to the previous year.
