Review of 2015 – part 3 – family happenings

Continuing my review of 2015 – this time with significant family happenings …. nothing significant at all about the order of first travel, then purchases, then family – promise!

In case you were wondering (although you probably weren’t) I write these reviews by looking back through my daily iPhone photos of 2015, reckoning that all significant happenings, travels and purchases will be documented there.

So ….. on to family happenings in 2015 ….

In January my husband, son and I had a great day out with Titanic Tours, the highlight for me being able to see (and photography) inside the original drawing offices.
