Annus Horribilis – Looking Forward to 2017


Hey guys, I’m really sorry I have been a little absent of late.  2016 Has been my annus horribilis!  After a very long illness my beloved mother lost her fight for life on 22 November 2016.  It was a blessed release.

I am thankful for the time I had with mum, I am grateful that I was lucky enough to have been her daughter and I will hold her in my heart forever.

I will honour her by living my life to the full and making 2017 my ‘optimus anno aeternum’ or ‘Best Year Ever’.

I hope you will join me as the blog picks up momentum again.  I have lots planned, just need to get my head sorted over the festive period and get some rest so that I can hit the ground running come January.

Have fun and look out for each other.

  1. So sorry for your loss Patricia. I look after my elderly Mum, the only thing keeping me sane is my horse! Looking forward to 2017 too 🙂 Happy Christmas! X

    1. I know that feeling Val. If you need any horsey help drop me a line. It’s hard to find time and motivation when you have dependants that take a lot of care. Bless you. Hope you get all you deserve. Health and happiness. Px
