A couple of Saturdays ago, I met up with some friends who are all bloggers.  They blog about all kinds  of topics.  From parenting and food to beauty and lifestyle.  It was a great morning where we could all catch up and talk a bit about blogging.  The venue was the very cool State 5 Fourways. A child friendly venue but we all left out kids at home.  It was time for just us.

What a year 2017 was.  It started with the swearing in of a new USA president who did not wait very long before he started signing Executive Orders. Britain officially began the process of leaving the European Union by triggering the Article 50 and “The Walking Dead” and “Game of Thrones” had everyone on the edge of their seats. In between all of this, we drank whisky, celebrated happy occasions and now start the count down to 2018.
