17 for 2017-December (and Final!) Update

Happy New Year to everyone who follows (or reads but doesn’t follow!) my little blog. Well done if you’ve followed this all year, it’s certainly been a busy one! I know for a fact before I even start writing about these goals properly that some haven’t been met. And you know what? I’m not going…… Continue reading 17 for 2017-December (and Final!) Update
