Another year of ups and downs with periods more like normality as well as periods of lockdown to endure.
We did manage a few very pleasant short breaks to visit with family which cheered us up considerably but no international trips for a while as yet!
The main event this year of course was THE WEDDING!
Sarah and Liam were finally able to tie the knot and here is a flavour of our year in pictures.
