It’s rather nice having this mosaic making tradition to look forward to at the start of each new blogging year (see previous years below for  explanation).  Memories from each picture are so vivid. It really does seem that time now we are 3 is flying by – we must be having too much fun!Mosaic - 2013 in pictures 4B
Jan to Dec 2013: first birthday in the snow, swing happy, making scones, day out at Croombe Park, cousins singing in the rain, weekend away in Glastonbury, strawberry picking with Charlie, feeding goats with Nana, watching the Meerkats at West Midland Safari Park, boat fun with Noah, pebble picking on Brighton Beach, E and E hanging out.

    Josie – Happy New Year to you too. Look forward to comparing notes on capturing things to be grateful for x

    Jeffriona – I use http://www.picmonkey.com/. Select create a collage, upload your pics and experiment with layouts. I used to use http://bighugelabs.com/mosaic.php which I found was more creative but stopped because it took so much longer to upload photos (had to downsize each file which was fiddly and time consuming). For large mosaics like this one picmonkey is great and fast.

NOURISH for #mindfulapril with @mamas_scrapbook - a scrambled egg start to my day. A carb heavy diet makes me lethargic and effects my mood so this sets me off on the right foot. Toddler L also loves it and it eases my mind about what else he eats in the day if I know he's had a good breakfast. #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
GROWTH - day 18 of #mindfulapril. One son the size of an emperor penguin and one the size of a Gremlin! #gloucesterlife thebudblog #glou
Obsessed with anything with wheels, I turn round to see Luca has nabbed someone's scooter at the park and is legging it! #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog #scootingtoddler
Well this has been interesting! After a conversation with @pocketfulofconkers I did a Myers Briggs personality test and it seems to be pretty accurate (ISFJ 'Defender'). Do you know your personality type? How has it helped you to understand yourself or the challenges you have with others? #nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #myersbriggspersonalitytype
BREATHE - day 17 of #mindfulapril. 6 years old and so happy to be doing this for the first time. His nearly 2 year old brother would try it right now if only he could reach! I'm definitely go to have to learn to pause and breathe when he's bigger. #nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #mumbloggeruk
#mindfulapril day 16 - LIGHT. Luca, our little "bringer of light" bored of life on the outside when he was just a day old. Crazy to think he'll be two in just over a week. He brings us so much joy but is also a good metaphor for accepting the shadows that come with the light (aka he's a right monkey!) #nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #lucabringeroflight
Missing this fella now he's back at school today. We'd happily go to @wwtslimbridge every day if we home schooled! #nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #loveglos #slimbridgewwt #outdoorexplorers #mumbloggeruk
With Es return to school this morning, on a walk that saw our usual route closed off because of a fatal stabbing, I can't help but reflect on what kind of world he's growing up in. Creativity is so important to becoming who you're meant to be and when you're comfortable in your own skin kindness to others comes more easily. #nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #creativekids #soulgrowing #newblogpost
The perfect cake for sneaking veg into! Courgette chocolate cake on the blog #nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #courgettechocolatecake
This week's #myheartylife post is now up on the blog. The second week of the holidays brought with it fun outside despite the rain at our favourite bird park @wwtslimbridge and our local @stjamescityfarm #nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #gratefuleveryday🙏
#mindfulapril combining days 14 and 15 with TREASURE and SLOW. Es favourite pastime is making Lego and i love how time seems to stand still for him when he's working on something. When I sit with him and join in it's fab because we're connecting over something he loves, the pace is slow, we sometimes talk but we mostly create in companionable silence. Luca is old enough now to try and join in or occupy himself pulling out every other toy in the room. Who cares if the house is a mess when this sort of creativity and connection is unfolding. #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog #zeroplansday #mumbloggeruk #welovelego
"Happy as a pig in muck" was Luca yesterday at @stjamescityfarm trying to push a wheelbarrow! Will have to put him to work as a volunteer when he's older 😁 #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog #helpfultoddlers
