2011 in pictures

January 3, 2012 at 2:27 pm 13 comments

I’ve long been a fan of Julie’s Little Cotton Rabbits blog and this post is inspired by her annual New Year’s reflection on the happiest moments of the last year.
As Julie says ”it’s good to remember the good bits and gloss over the bad”. 
So here are my month-by-month smile making memories from 2011.

Jan-Dec 2011:
Weston Super Mare with dear friends, survival and new life, helping hands at the plot, holiday in Fuerteventura, Sufjan Stevens gig in London, our cornflower bed inspired by a visit to Durham, Laura and Tim’s wedding, 20 week scan, finally being able to eat home grown cherry tomatoesfalling in love with our new nephew Zac,   the last of a fab harvest, our niece Kim and her love for her yet-to-be-born cousin.

goodbye 2011, hello 2012 wordless wednesday

    Is it daft of me that August is my favourite?

    Thinking of you, checking computer far too many times each day in case there is “news”.

    […] Rabbits. I’ve been inspired by her lovely tradition of looking back over the year since 2011 and am grateful for the nudge to do so again for 2017. I feel so old saying it but… each year […]

I love how an ordinary moment frozen in time by the camera can actually reveal so much. Luca is all about inhabiting his body and jumping, running and climbing. Euan is all about the quirkiness, curiosity and inventions. There's more about these best friend brothers on the blog in this month's #siblingsproject post #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
This little one is negotiating hard to get out of food shopping with me. Even saying that poor Daddy will be hungry if we don't restock the fridge isn't working. Apparently Daddy will be fine eating a wooden mushroom while L watches telly! #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog #toddlerantics💜
#mischiefmakers #summerreadingchallenge starts today - you can find out more at your local library. E was excited to sign up and work towards earning his medal. There are some great activities taking place in Gloucestershire libraries this summer. #welovereadingbooks #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
I'd love a packet of crisps the size of a pillow case to make the same toddler-to-Doritos bag ratio. #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog #toddlerliferocks
Love Saturday mornings. E's busy creating already with @geomagworld #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
Beach buddies #lightroomstoriescontest #adobelightroom #bestfriendbrothers #nipitinthebudblog
Happy memories of our Cornwall break last month at the start of this super sunny heatwave season. #lightroomstoriescontest #adobelightroom #nipitinthebudblog
Our first "soaked on the school run" selfie in a long long time! So many smiles and "yay, it's raining" from everyone in the playground ☔😄 #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
I think Luca was channelling his inner Monet when he painted his duck money box #2yearoldartist #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
I love finding pictures on my phone I'd forgotten about that remind me of a really special time with my boys (the Project Pilgrim celebration at @GlosCathedral a couple of weeks ago) #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
Love this kids creativity - there's only so many times you can tolerate your little brother interrupting your game of giant Connect 4 after all! #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
L fell asleep in the car today and stayed asleep when I got him out. I took this picture thinking I'd savour the moment and then wake him so that bedtime wouldn't be messy but just look at that face, I couldn't. So I enjoyed the cuddle instead and he's now snoring blissfully beside me again. Trust your baby, he knows what he needs 😴 #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
