Politically, what a bizarre year 2016 was. First Brexit (who’d have thought that?) and then Trump became President of the USA. I’m hoping that the world shapes up to be a good place for my twins to grow up in because I’m a real advocate for fairness and equality. Here’s hoping. That aside, on a personal level, 2016 has been pretty… View Post

Last year my family came over to stay in our new-build home in Worcester where we had our very first Christmas!

I therefore like to pop into Worcester as much as I can these days to either… View Post
