Karndean brings excitement to your children’s rooms #ad

Happy new year! Here we are in 2018 and my fifth consecutive year of Project 365! How did that happen? Here’s our week in pictures… Day 1 – Monday 1st January – the new year is about getting fit for a lot of people. But for me, being fit is just a way of life. Coincidentally, I stumbled across this while downloading my run data from my TomTom watch. Not bad, eh? Day 2 – Tuesday 2nd January – regular...
