2017… a review in collages 

I could write an epic essay on 2017 but I have a small child and I am investing my limited energy into binge watching Peaky Blinders and binge eating leftover Christmas cheese before I have to go back to work on Tuesday. Instead I’m going to rely on the old adage that a picture speaks 1,000 words. Once a month on my Instagram (@abbiosbiston) I publish a collage of nine pictures that sum up the month gone by for me. So I’m going to share them with you. If anyone wants more context feel free to ask in the comments and no, I don’t know why the pancake shows up in February and March. I really like pancakes…













Happy New Year everyone. Thanks for hanging out and reading and commenting. You are all lovely. Here’s to surviving 2018.


  1. What a great year in pictures! makes me feel as if I haven’t done anything in 2017!
    (Actually, I didn’t do that much, thinking about it..)
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. I think you did loads, Pete – all those trips! Anyway, there is nothing wrong with chilling out a bit. Sometimes things seem really hectic to me and I feel a bit exhausted by it all. I would love a little more downtime!

  2. What a great collection! Looks like it was a good year! Happy New Years!

    1. Happy New Year to you too. It had its ups and downs but there were some great times to be sure!

  3. MIB

    Happy New Year to all you Os! 😀

  4. What a great year. Little O is beautiful! Happy New Year !

    1. Thank you! I think he’s the most beautiful baby in the world, but I am biased 😉

  5. Such a sweet collection of photos! And so cool to see how Little O has changed across the year. Happy 2018! 😀

    1. It’s really when you look at the pictures over the year you can see how much he has grown! Happy 2018 to you too!

  6. I know I am late to the party (catching up now), but great pics! Looks like 2017 was a good one 🙂

    1. It had some great moments!
