Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall - 2012 the best bits

Good morning

Slowly returning to normal here - MrVV has gone back to work today and I'm off back to the CS this afternoon for a shift. However those boys of mine are still dead to the world for another half an hour then I shall be evil Mum and go and wake them!

Time for another coffee and a blogging session.

One last look at 2012 - pictures that you've probably seen before but represent the past 12 months rather well for me and my family;


January saw me finally being able to cycle again after that minor incident on the dance floor!
Birthday season started for my menfolk.
Heavy snow in February meant family fun
The first flowers appeared in the garden promising warmer days very soon.


March brought my favourite flowers and a birthday trip to Cambridge.
April saw the influx of chocolate eggs and fluffy chicks.
May brought the arrival of Bertie and a trip to a gorgeous river side pub to celebrate May Day.


June the Jubilee celebrations and an evening with Mumford and Sons
July - Big Son's Prom and the Olympic Flame coming through nearby towns and villages.
August - a trip to Yorkshire in Bertie and the most amazing sunsets and then a wonderfully wet but fun day at a folk festival with Bellowhead as the finale.


September - Sir Bradley Wiggins and his friends cycled through our little town one sunny Sunday morning.
October - time to hunt fairy houses.
November - those men of mine were marching and remembering.
The last picture is also November - one final look back over my shoulder.

No December pics as they are all rather too recent.

Time now to look forward to 2013 - I forgot one major important event happening this year when I posted the other day!

In March sometime before my birthday, I'm going to be an Auntie again. My baby sister is expecting her first child - I am guessing I'll know when the big event starts to happen even before I'm told - when my other 2 sisters had their babies I came out with sympathy pains even though I'd no idea they were in hospital!

I must get cracking on with my crochet - there's a blanket partially made for this baby and another that's needed for a special birthday later in the Spring!!

Oh good news - a quick blog surf yesterday found news of a new Photo Scavenger Hunt for 2013 - I've really missed the ones Kathy used to host. This new one is hosted by Greenthumb @ Made with Love - should keep my eyes open at all times this year!!

See you soon

That's a really good round up of the year - I loved seeing your photos all together. I have a reference to a May Pole on my end of year post, too, but you're the one who actually got to see one! Happy New Year to you all.
