Adieu, 2015

Dear 2015,

I won’t sugar coat this (I have diabetes so I try to avoid added sugar, you see), you’ve sucked at times. You’ve thrown so many obstacles in the path of my family and I. You’ve made me want to just hide in a corner, until you disappear. You’ve tested our limits, every step of the way.

Tonight though, I’m pleased to say that we’ve beaten you. My family and I are still here, smiling. Together.

A word of advice to your sister, 2016. Be a bit nicer to us. Let us carry our heads high, smiling and laughing. Everyone needs a challenge every now and then, I’ll admit that. Just don’t make it too overwhelming?

Many thanks, and looking forward to meeting you.

Louise
