Lots happened this year… thank goodness I have these films to hold my memories, so I can re-live these moments again and again, because I’m partial to forgetting things, almost as soon as they happen!

Unlike previous years where I created at least one extra film a month (not including weekend or mini DITL films)… I didn’t manage that, because my focus was on other things… like completing a week of daily films, 8 times this year! So, in the end there was a lot of video shot. 

Also, didn’t manage a summer film for the first time in years… just wasn’t feeling it this summer – the weather wasn’t great and we didn’t do much together as a family. But that’s ok, just the way it goes now the boys are older.

Anyway, I’m chuffed to have finally put together this post, I resisted for ages! But I know I’ll be pleased in the future to have everything all in one place, just like previous years.
