So, while still settling into life with a 6-week old Hugo, 2018 started well with a quiet NYE in with Alina.

Work-wise, I was into my last few months with my old job in Harlow and starting to look out for new ventures.

In February, we went to Ashbourne for a Valentines weekend that ended up being a wet weekend of Shrovetide football. On the way home, we bought Alina a nice new Jaguar XF to play with.

At Easter, I left my job and started some well-earned time at home with Hugo.

We went skiing, weekend breaks away and a cruise with Alina’s family before I landed an interesting role in Cambridge with a tech-startup.

I bought my own little toy and we roll into 2019 in a great place.
