A review of 2017

It’s that time of year again; it’s time for my yearly review post!

2017 hasn’t been the best of years for me, and I’ll be glad the back of it. But today I want to look past the negatives and focus on the positive things that have happened this year.

So let’s take a walk down memory lane and reminisce about what’s happened over the last 12 months…

I’ve decided to combine my Little Victories posts for October and November into one because I forgot to post my October one at the beginning of this month! D’oh!

I can’t believe it’s December already. This year has just flown by!

I’m happy to report that I survived November, which is usually my least favourite month and the time of the year when I struggle with my mental health the most. But this year I kept busy and gave myself things to focus on, and it’s honestly made such a difference to my overall happiness.

A little house update

I thought I would take a little break from my New York travel diary series and write about something else for a change (thanks for the idea, Amy!).

So, today I’m going to talk about my house, and how we’re getting on with the DIY side of things.


It’s been around 4 months since we moved into the house we bought on the Wirral, and to be honest, it still looks very much like it did the day we moved in!
