Well, I can start with one thing – 2016 didn’t involve much blogging. Or much of anything other than working and existing.
The serious injury to my left leg really managed to screw up a part of my entire year and I could do very little of the things that I had hoped to enjoy.
Sadly, I actually don’t see much change ahead in that regard, so I have accepted the fact that the way I wanted to explore and adventure is, for now at least, closed to me. Hey ho.
So, on with the wrap up and look forwards..
Its been a wet winter and spring, which has led to a fair bit of hunkering down and waiting it out. I’m still riding the bike occasionally – not off road, thats the bit I cant do, but I do take the thing out from time to time.
Views from my office on successive days..
I rode out with half the Western Australian Police Force on the first leg of their ride across the country on the Wall to Wall ride..
The weather did improve – was a good chance to see how Elizabeth Quay was coming along.
The bike came out a few times..
The sun really started to come out and I made the most of the local area to get some clear air and perspective
We had to sell the faithful Speed Machine. Big un needed a safer car to learn to drive and crash in, so it had to go for one with airbags, ABS and indicators that worked when it was sunny..
I did some pens stuff – journalling, cleaning, new pens and new inks and going to Yagan’s Cafe in Freo to meet up with the Perth Pen community.
Went for walks when I could – this is what screws up my leg though, sadly. But the place is so beautiful, especially when it’s been stormy.
Walked about at work too – this is the new Stadium in Perth.
Went out for lunch with Jay
Serviced my bike and replaced the brakes.
Cleared up my patio so that we could enjoy it more for the summer. Need a new table and chairs set though – these are uncomfortable and way past their best..
And got out again on foot to enjoy the fresh air
And here’s your greying host…
So thats all the photos for the year!
So, 2017 – what’s the deal?!
2017 is going to be a good year because I will make it a good year.
Lovely photos. I particularly agree with nos 4 & 6 of your NY resolutions. Good luck.
And hopefully we can catch up more in 2017 too! Wishing you all the best for the year ahead.
