my 2019

A busy and enjoyable 2019. Starting an exciting new job, plenty of short holiday breaks, busy with the family, my photography, and helping to run Globetrotters travel club in London.

Nimmi spends a lot of time looking after grandson Noah, as well as finding time to enjoy making cakes and her “Sritalian” cooking. Sadly we suddenly lost her brother Anton just before Christmas 2019 – a shock to us all, especially at this time of year.

My mother Rene always has a fuller social diary than we do – with church, village friends and holidays with her sisters. The garden is kept immaculate and she still has her annual Coffee Morning for charity.

At work

In April I started a new full-time job with Access Self Storage responsible for 3 websites, several agencies and a host of other digital marketing work. Although going back to commuting has its challenges, I work with some great people in a successful family owned business. Job satisfaction and variety of work are key.

Nimmi is enjoying work at No. 1 Lounges and is taking on more accounting responsibilities including payroll, VAT and AP things I don’t understand.

With my camera

Other than for fun and Facebook, I keep my Nikon busy at various events – charity, corporate events, concerts, birthdays and weddings. Whilst I enjoy my Digital SLR, I find my iPhone almost as good for simple snaps.

Travels

This year our travels took us to Fuengirola for New Year’s Eve; Paris with family & friends; Modena for some great Italian food and friendship; Folkestone for childhood memories and twice to our place in La Marina, Spain.

What's On My Mind

Enjoy the special moments with your loved ones. Look after yourself and the planet. Whilst vegan food is healthy, enjoy the turkey and pigs in blankets. So here it is Merry Christmas, Everybody's having fun. Look to the future now. It's only just begun.

Wishing you Seasonal Greetings, a Happy New Year and good health to you, your family and friends.
