Morning all , and a very, very happy NEW Year to all my readers, new and old. I have been looking at pictures from 2011 to make a review page for Journal your Christmas and also to make a 4 x 6 photolove layout ala Shimelle Laine.
I love photos so Sian's new ideas for adding in or just using the photos for our stories has inspired me to share some of the stories I have loved over the past 12 months. Some are stories you have heard before, others are brand new. So sit back and relax, top up that coffee and enjoy.
October and Luke and I went to see The Feeling in Bristol. Great band, great night and great company, oh yeah and I made a new friend. August and another trip this time up to Sheffield to celebrate Luke's **nd birthday! He doesnt like people to know his age, poor young thing, heehee. This picture as some of you may remember is of Luke and Matt drinking the cocktails from teapots. Yep a heavenly concoction guaranteed to give u a headache the next day. Then the swans and cygnets near lil sis's house, so beautiful and tame too.
November and BIG BIG blogfriends meeting weekend in Shropshire. It was just such a joy to meet a handful of wonderful women, and some of their other halves, and to scrapbook live with them. It makes me proud to have started my blog and to have made such awesome friends. Next weekend away coming soon, we hope.
February and I met my friend Teresa and her youngest son Jonny at a local farm. We had a fab day and it made me appreciate how lil people love me just as much as the big ones do. Next the goats of Burrington Coombe, everytime we go to see lil sis we keep our eyes peeled and can often be heard to sing parts of the lonely goatherd as we drive through the gorge.
December saw the lighting of the Manning Close lights for charity and they were even on Channel Four just before Xmas. Christmas was wonderful, despite me falling down the stairs and now sitting in funny positions. July was Lou Lou's birthday and we went to Disraeli's house and this picture of a thistle caught my eye in the orchards.
.................................so it is now Tuesday and sadly I have spent the last 2 days in the hospital. So I hope u will forgive my not quite complete review of 2011, I will finish it when I am fully recovered. xxx
