2015: A review of the year in pictures

2015 has been a pretty big and eventful year for me. There was travel, transformation and the start of what will be the biggest journey of my life… but a picture speaks a thousand words so here’s my review of the year.



Mr O and I went to Paris for a very brief visit. It was very cold but also very cool. I really liked the Tuileries garden.



Valentine’s Day is cheesy but also fun. Especially if you have the right jumper.



March was Mr O Senior’s birthday so we took him to an awesome Lego art exhibition.



In April we visited South Africa for my beautiful friend, Barbara’s wedding and I was fortunate enough to be a bridesmaid.



In May Mr O and I finally went to Hampton Court Palace and he was very upset that someone had done such terrible torture on a boob!



Mr O’s birthday is in June. He asked me to make him a red velvet cake and I was most pleased with the result!



In July some friends and I went to a murder mystery evening at the Dungeon where Mr O works. We did not solve the mystery but it turned out the maid did it so we left this on a message wall in a pop up bar. Our team was called Sherlock Homeless.



In August our friends Ronelle and Damon got married at one of the cutest and most fun weddings I’ve ever been to.



In September Mr O and I always go away for our wedding anniversary. This year we went to Tallinn and Helsinki. I did not take the photos very seriously.



October saw our return to Centre Parcs for the other Mr O’s 30th. I still can’t ride a bike… hence the tricycle!



In November I turned 35!! And Mr O bought me these incredible roses.



In December we could finally tell the world about Little O, who has right now just woken up and started bouncing around!

2016 is going to be an even bigger one so happy New Year all and all the best for the coming year!


  1. Happy New Year to you too! All the best to the little one!
