Just a few spare minutes to myself so time for one final look at blogland for 2013.
Those that read regularly will know 2013 has been one heck of a roller coaster ride here in the VV household - however on balance despite life seeming like a dodgy soap script at times it hasn't been all bad. There's been a new hobby, new friends, a fantastic new house, a gorgeous squishy new nephew, plenty of fun, that long hot summer, lots of camping, loads of live music and best of all, those wonderful boys of mine have grown up so much are just the best a Mum could ask for.
Here's just a few pics from the last few weeks;
The mantalpiece is becoming more cluttered with Christmas stuff - just how I love it :)
Cards from both boys of course but this one from Big Son made me laugh loudly - I think it rather sums up my new life rather well!!
I finished this stocking for my new nephew rather quickly - had completely forgotten I'd made them for the others when they were small - I expect come Christmas morning it will be full of parcels for his first Christmas.
Christmas jumper wearing - we've all got them - just need to get a photo of the 3 of us together.
Little Son off to play in his bands Christmas concert - I went with a friend and we had a good evening singing along :)
Big Son off to the 6th forms charity dress up day - they raised over £500 in local towns for 2 charities.
Straining this years Sloe Gin - such an awful task ;)
Sampling time - with a shop bought mince pie - I know shocking!! I will get some made it just life is all rather hectic at the moment. Looking forward to closing the door on Christmas Eve after the carol service and sitting down with another glass of sloe gin.
Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
See you soon
