Just Before we start the next One

I'd planned this post for the 1st. Bad blogger wouldn't be help me upload my pics so in the true spirit of proper laziness I gave up. 

Before I get going on the excitement of a whole brand new year laid out with plans and ideas I wanted to capture some of the best bits of 2011.

Starting right back in January and February when we were having what felt like the 100th snowfall of the winter. I needed tons of colour, cosy treats and naughty indulgences.


In March and April everything starts getting more exciting. Flowers are sneaking through the ground, Little Bun's birthday and Easter egg hunts fill my head with ideas and plans a plenty.


By May we had lots more glorious sun-filled days. the washing was snapping on the line, doors were flung open and the first warm beach trips began. The end of summer is marked by Eldest Bun's birthday and a whole new season to get ready for.


Summer stayed for a lovely long while this year and we had a slow steam into autumn. It meant lots more days for walks and lazy picnics while we ate crumbles and got the winter drinks sorted.


Suddenly it was darker and colder. The woodburner was blazing and christmas excitement started bubbling away.


Now I have two very loud and screechy girls here ready to get on with the new year. I think they'd rather have  a few more days at home doing what they want, but I'm ready for a bit of whatever I want to do time so back to school they go. I hate the end of things, but the start of new ones is pretty good.

Happy New Year to you all.

  7. Happy New Year! How lovely to have a review of the year here. I remember so many of those photo's and remember how uplifting I found them when you first blogged them. I feel like I've fallen head over heels for Bobo Bun again! In particular that nifty little skirt you made a while back.

    I'm looking forward to another year of more delights from you.

    It's been bucketing down here so it was lovely to get back from a pretty grim school run (my push chair broke :o() to warm up with a cuppa and this colour blast before I launch into the next testing thing in the schedule. Kids tea. Please lord make them eat the food I present them with rather than moaning and scattering it on the floor!

  8. Happy New Year too you!

    Wow what a lovely fun filled colourful year you have had.

    I know what you mean about things ending. I always hate the slow getting back to routine, but need it somehow. And then start looking forward to the New Year.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving me a comment. I read all of them and really appreciate you taking the time to say hello.
I always try to get back and reply, but sometimes this may take a bit longer as pets and children always seem to need attention around here.
