2016 - a mixed bag year

Here we are, 29th December and only 2 days left of this year.

As I look through my year there have been lots of good along with the sad. I didn't blog as often as previous years but here are some of the highlights:-

I was 60!. The birth of young Angus (Gus) in May.  A trip to Chelsea. Three good holidays - you may remember New York, France (there are actually 4 posts on this), then of course Southwold .

I have accomplished loads of knitting, according to Ravelry I have completed 58 projects - you can check out most of my projects here. Awards for my bouquet - magazine and 1st prize

I have been getting to grips with my iphone camera and attended a workshop in March.  I have to admit to not using my big camera anywhere near as much, and to be honest I miss it, but the camera phone is always there, no fuss.

So many celebrity deaths, I guess the older we get the more likely that people we have grown up with leave us.  Fact of life, but sad nonetheless. I try not to dwell on the sad things in life, but they are always in the back of your mind.

We had a lovely christmas, I didn't take many photos, but here are a few

We are currently off work, and have been getting out and enjoying the frosty weather.  Here are a few snaps from our walks yesterday and today

So that was our year, I do wonder what 2017 has in store for us.

Wishing you all a very happy New Year from Granny's World - Sue xx


  1. Happy New Year to you and all the Family. Such a joy watching those beautiful grands grow through the pages of you blog.
    Bring on 2017!

  2. Happy New Year Sue! 2016 was a challenging year for so many. I'll be glad to see it gone. I'm glad you had a nice Christmas. I love the picture of the grandkids in matching pyjamas. So sweet! We had the same thing here. Although getting all four in a picture together was quite the challenge.
