Yes, it’s that time of year where once again I reflect on my year and share the journey with you. As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words, so in this blog I’ll let the photos do the talking… : )
Started the new year in a healthy, mindful way, with a retreat that my friend Emma organised in Sussex.
I love this pic of Leonie and her beloved soulmate Lullah. It’s been a really difficult year for them both with little Lullah having a life-changing accident, and I have been so touched by Leo’s love and devotion to her – it’s so inspiring.
My flat is still unfinished after seven months. I’m living in a building site, althought I can see the end is in sight!
I do a photo shoot at London’s Barbican to promote Joules Menwear at QVC.
Paul, I and some friends have a wonderful weekend in Lisbon. What a captivating city!
Holiday time again – this time to Mykonos, Greece. It was ten days of pure heaven – sunshine, breaches and whitewashed buildings!
Hurrah – the flat is finished! It’s gone on longer than planned but it’s worth every minute of it. We have a photo shoot there as the builders are so proud and want to showcase it.
A few days away in the motherland of South Wales. My little Ava fascinated at seeing waves for the first time. My heart melts when I look at this photo.
A few days away in Sitges near Barcelona. I was also brave enough to model some Joules shorts on my Instagram, after getting into reasonable shape (more on that in the New Year blog).
Final little weekend trip to Puerto Banus (can you tell how much I like Spain?!) with my sister and niece.
And I went to a Halloween party dressed like this… Haha!!
A wonderful visit to my dear friend Justine in Guildford.
A wonderful trip to Middlesbrough and a special Christmas meal at London Bob Bob Ricard.
Looking back at this year I feel so humbled and really blessed. Yes, the year has had its ups and downs, but I feel like the luckiest boy in the world, and I never want to take my health, my fantastic job at QVC, or my loving friends and family for granted.
I’d love to know how your year has been too and the highlights…
Sending you a thousand hugs,
What a fantastic blog going over the past year, lots of travels, we love travelling but we have 2 dogs so really hard to leave them but we have a good kennels to board them.. So glad your flat is finished what i can see it looks amazing, lovely clean lines and looking fresh. My highlights… well not many but, finishing the garden is one and decorating our house is another, our fantastic holidays to Crete and Cyprus (where we have a small home) we are off to Mauritius at end of January and just being around our young Grandchildren aged 2 and 9 are my main highlights. But there will be lots in 2020 – 2021. !
Wishing you a Happy New Year and all the best in your new home .
