Here's to 2017, which we hope will be a better year than 2016.
Apart from my health issues, 2016 saw Britain vote for Brexit which has already damaged my Spanish bank balance. Then America voted for Donald Trump, the lesser of two evils. We will see how much damage he can do in his four years as President.
2016 also saw far too many great entertainers die including David Bowie, George Michael and Prince - we hope that trend ended with the chimes of Big Ben.
Pam and I saw in the New Year at our home in Bigastro and then watched the celebrations in London including a fabulous concert by Robbie Williams that halted at midnight for the fireworks outside only to continue afterwards for a further thirty minutes.
Let us hope that 2017 is kind to us all.
