2011 –The Ups And The Downs


This year has been the craziest, and most overwhelming year of my life. Our life as we knew it took a backseat as my granddad got sicker and sicker as 2011 progressed. My parents have been incredibly selfless in taking on the responsibility of looking after my poorly granddad and also my nan. I know how tough this year has been on them and that is hard for me to watch.

Despite everything we have still tried to make our lives happy and fulfilled which is more than most people would do given our circumstances. And although 2011 has been a rotten year, it made me all the more grateful for the good times!
