Lockdown Blog 25: A year in pictures

Hi everyone,

Given that this lockdown is understandably lasting a long while, I thought I’d spend some time thinking back to some lovely times from 2019, in no particular order.  Some are trivial, some are serious.  But they were all happy moments :-)

Much love to you all, and keep safe!

Until the next time,
