2019: A year in 100 photos – 1 January 2020

I thought I’d make a rare blog posting to include a few of my favourite photos from 2019.

It’s been a busy year, including a number of ‘Date Days’ with Sarah to Cliveden, Ham House, Stonor Park, Waddesdon Manor, Cogges Manor Farm, Loseley Park, Greys Court and Kew Gardens; an excellent week away down in Dorset and the wedding of good friends Hannah and Lewis.

In the garden, I constructed some raised beds and filled them with vegetables and work has continued in developing the ‘Round Garden’ at the front of the house.

We enjoyed various days out, including trips to Bournemouth, the Aston Rowant Nature Reserve, where we had a picnic lunch overlooking the scenic M40, an open air theatre production of The Wind in the Willows and a day in London, including seeing the London Transport Museum and Christmas lights.

Sadly, we only managed to complete one further section of the Thames Path, which takes us as far as Lechlade.  We’ll definitely try and do better in 2020!

2019 was also the year that my mother made the sad flight to Canada, for the funeral of her sister, who had passed away after a short illness.  I also bid farewell to some good friends from work, whose career paths took them in new directions, including overseas to Australia!

The year ended with the usual Christmas festivities and family gatherings.

I’m hoping that 2020 will bring further posts on here.  In the meantime, I wish you a very Happy and Peaceful 2020.

If you enjoy the photos, feel free to follow me on Instagram.
