The first month of 2017 has already passed and what a crazy month it has been! I mean, for me it’s been crazy hectic and I feel a little exhausted now. I’ve had some really great days of seeing friends and read some good books and basically had a great start to the year. But then I’ve had terrible family news and the world has basically gone crazy with Donald Trump. January has been a whirlwind and whilst I’m glad it’s over I dread to think what February has to bring whilst also looking forward to it.
