2016 What a Year!

Roller coaster 2016 

My oh my, what a year this has been! It kicked off with my very own mini-me gracing us with her presence. I have been meaning to introduce Her Excellency Mini-me for nearly 10 months now. The sheer delay in posting anything should give you a sense of how jam packed parenthood is. Mini-me is definitely the highlight of my year and life so I will save you the cliques that all new parents post. 

Among the other notable highlights was landing my dream gig, the homies finally coming over to the EU, not wearing Crocs, ending my 2nd year in Criminology with distinction, whipping LaFaille in FIFA, meeting my little nephew and fulfilling my childhood dream of going to Old Trafford! 

But hey, it hasn't just been all rosy and lavender scented farts. I also got my ass kicked in a 10km race by a bunch of young thunderkatts who referred to me as 'old man' as they passed me by. Scandalus Mandalus schooled me on the squash court and Kanye had a mental breakdown on stage. However, the most devastating of all came at the scrotum of 2016 with SnowFlake and myself parting ways. "We decided" that it is in everyone's best interest that we choose this path. Harsh? I have no words and neither is this the forum to discuss that. My only goal right now and into 2017 and beyond is to be the best dad and human being I can be for Her Excellency Mini-me. 

From the bleachers, I hear the rumblings and murmurs of 'coming back wearing the 45' but remember, even the G.O.A.T took 2 years. Time heals all wounds... oh and Dettol! Time and Dettol...
