2011 in pictures

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.

    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”.

6 years ago today I took my last waddle to the allotment to pick green veg for a vitamin packed last supper.  I knew baby was on his way but had a feeling he wasn't going to be quick about it.  It's his birthday in 2 days time and I'm so excited for him, my darling Whopper (he was 10lb 2oz and my bump in this picture is 48"!)
#nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #ginormousbump  #10monthspregnant Amazing customer service from @tatterhood_ to help make sure her framed Mother poem arrived in time for my Mum's 70th birthday.  So many other wonderful poems available as postcards and her new book is also in stock on her website.  Go check her out, she's ace :0)
#motherhood #70thbirthdaygift Roadies.  When your Dad @musicalgeorgemoorey has a gig coming up and doesn't want to keep lugging his kit downstairs it becomes THE place in the room to sit!  #spacesgloucester #gloucesterlife So lush, they've made a den under the table and called for the iPad so they could watch their favourite Netflix episode inside.  #5minutespeaceandquiet Green eggs biscuits trial run for Es Dr Seuss birthday party next week.  Figured they'd be more appealing to 5 year olds than dying real eggs green!
