2020 Reviewed We all know 2020 wasn't the year we wanted it to be, but here's a look back at the year that unfolded

Week 165.0 — 21st December '20

2020. What a year.

As it draws to a close, and with the promise of a vaccine not too far away for us all, it's time to take a look back. As usual, I'll round up a list of 'year in review' posts from various websites.

It's been a tough year. We've barely seen family this year and I don't think I met up with any friends at all this year. I'm looking forward to some normality next year, if it comes.

For all the sacrifices and hardships, there are still more to be made and to be had. And even when things are 'normal' again, how long before it all actually feels... normal?

To end this look back, I wanted to share a video that hopefully brings a smile. It's one I linked to before but here it is again, I hope it brings a smile to your face.
