Wow, What a year. I never thought I would be sitting here in My Caravan looking back on 2016 and would have taken the course it has.
On January 1st I woke up in South Africa just 24 hours from flying home after the best holiday ever.
Whilst it was a great trip I truly believe it was life changing and is solely responsible for the way this year has panned out.
I am going to pick out a few notable events of 2016
In March I was able to put to bed one of the worst experiences of my life. After the unfortunate incident at The Caravan, I was allowed back to enjoy the place we love as a family and where I am right now. This year at Far Grange had been amazing. There are still a few issues on site but on the whole it has gone from strength to strength. The poor staff have been got rid of and are still being removed. The new people are great and the whole atmosphere is brilliant. We have made new friends and had some great times. There is nowhere I would rather see in 2017 and can’t wait for next year at Far Grange with all the staff who seemed to have an unreasonable dislike of me (probably because they were either jealous or just knew they were in the wrong so “flexed” their authority) gone!
In May, Sam and I got invited to Buckingham Palace. I do know who nominated me for the invitation and I was both proud and incredibly happy to get the invitation which now proudly sits framed on my dining room wall.

September brought about Sam and Amy’s Graduation. No really sure I have ever been as proud as I was that Day. How many people get to see their daughter and wife graduate at the same time!

And November brought the biggest change for me personally. A new job!
There we a couple of other notable events that stick in my mind
Firstly, as you all know, I am car mad! At the end of July I was fortunate to be invited to the Silverstone Classic event! What a great Day!
And finally, there was Its a knockout at Far Grange!
So its New Year’s eve and I am spending it with my friends.
Love you all & all our other friends who are not here now!
To my Family down South, Kate, Michael, and everyone else. I hope you have a great evening and awesome 2017!
To our South African Family. I know it won’t be the same with us there but please and try to enjoy New Year! Love you all.
To My parents in SA. A total open unconditional Thank You! Love you both and stay safe in the Southern Hemisphere!
Thank You to Sam, Amy and Lucy for Everything. I love you all and am so proud of you and honoured to be part of your lives x
If you would have told me in January that 2016 would go the way it has and I would be where I am now, I would never have believed you. I have so much planned for 2017. it really exciting. Thing professionally personally and much more.
Good bye 2016 and here’s to 2017 – and its going to me my year!
Until Next Time…
