The year is almost over, so time to look back – here is the first part of my Review of 2016
In January some new fishy residents moved in …. their numbers have fluctuated over the year, and not sure how many of the originals still survive!
January also saw my youngest child heading off on his school residential trip to Ardnabannon Outdoor Pursuits Centre near Castlewellan
And at the end of January we just had a little snow
Formal time! Lots of preparation …. lots of photos ….. great time had by all!
We had a lovely half-term break in Dublin celebrating the end of the AQE exams
We stayed at Carton House Hotel near Kildare
Janmary Designs deliveries continued around Northern Ireland – I always enjoy a wee road trip down to the Kingfisher Gallery in Killyleagh
The perks of daughters doing Home Economics practical exams
St Patricks Day parade in Belfast
We started a Craft Group at Seymour St Methodist Church
and I taught another iphone photography workshop at Island Arts Centre in Lisburn
My middle-big brother turned 50!
My son was ready for Titanic Day at school (as an injured shipyard worker)
I spent an enjoyable evening with the ladies of Magheramorne Presbyterian Church sharing my faith, blogging and jewellery designs
and we painted our shed blue!
