Instalife January 2016

If I had to sum up January in one word it would be emotional. 2016 started with two bereavements, one colleague and one friend. I found it hard to be cheery and upbeat about the month ahead. However, we had our first holiday of the year planned so G and I enjoyed some down time. Here’s what I got up to via my Instagram snaps.
