2017 is almost over… I say this with a hint of sadness as this year has been a good one for me. I’m blessed that my family are in good health and happy. I’m blessed to have a job where I know I’m helping to make a difference to people struggling with their mental health. I’m blessed to have some great friends with whom I’ve shared many special and happy moments. I also feel very lucky that this year I’ve been abroad with family, sang at music festivals with my choir and had one of my projects featured in British Patchwork and Quilting magazine (Yay!).
So it’ll be with sadness that I say goodbye to 2017, but it’ll be with a great big smile that I welcome in 2018. I have no idea what it’ll bring, but as long as I have my family and friends nearby, a job I feel passionate about and a few creative projects on the go, I couldn’t ask for more.
Wishing you all a peaceful 2018. Mel x
