Review of 2016 … January to June

The year is almost over, so time to look back – here is the first part of my Review of 2016

January

In January some new fishy residents moved in …. their numbers have fluctuated over the year, and not sure how many of the originals still survive!

January also saw my youngest child heading off on his school residential trip to Ardnabannon Outdoor Pursuits Centre near Castlewellan

And at the end of January we just had a little snow

February

Formal time! Lots of preparation …. lots of photos ….. great time had by all!
