Taking Stock- December 2016

It may be the very first day of January 2017, but I wanted to finish and post my ‘Taking Stock- December 2016’ post.   Pip Lincolne introduced me to the idea of ‘Taking Stock’ posts a while back, and so it seemed like a good idea to complete the year with one.

So here we go….Taking Stock – December 2016!
