Top Five Posts of 2019

It’s New Year’s Eve, we’re just home after two and a bit weeks visiting family across Europe and so we won’t be moving far tonight. Instead, as every other website and blog seems to be bringing you their Top 5 whatevers for the year, here’s mine – the Top 5 Most Read Posts on in 2019.
