That Was The Year That Was
Well that's 2017 just about over.
As always the last day of the year is a time for reflection with regards to the last 12 months and also a time to look forward.
2017 saw the loss of both my mum and her partner. There were also losses of extended family members and friends on Mrs CC's side of the family.
On a less personal note the political shambles on both sides of the Atlantic continues to give cause for concern. Certainly not a good time to be poor, disabled, in a minority or disadvantaged in any way.
At least the NHS in Scotland is not yet being systematically dismantled as is the case south of the border.
On a more positive note I got to meet my new twin nephews Oscar and Magnus for the first time.
And there is always the Glasgow Bloggers Convention in May to look fondly back on. Let's do it again sometime.
As you can see I am feeling somewhat melancholy and these two songs which I put on recently seem to hit the spot.
Wishing you and yours a healthy, happy and prosperous 2018.
See you on the other side
