It's been a difficult year for me and my family.
We have been grieving for my Dad since he died on New Year's Eve, and we've all had emotional moments.
We were already grieving for my Grandad, who also died last year, and my Nana a few months before him.
I have felt extremely anxious at times. I have worried a lot about my Mum. But we've supported each other as a family, and Laura has been a great support too.
I feel much more hopeful about next year.
