2010 in twelve pictures

January February - Edan supervising digging March (way too many lovely pictures to choose from there were lots of beach visits and birthdays and beautiful magnolias!)
May (the first strawberry of the year nearly got this slot)
June July - a little bumble bee colony took up residence in our hedge! August was the month of festivals and here is the stroppy teenager pose being perfected by a 4 year old, a sign of things to come?! September brought an injured paw and large vets bills meaning no new cooker! October - Two of our cats died and despite saying I would not get a kitten they seemed to appear from all directions and this little one came to live with us. November saw Kailen's 5th birthday

December - lots of sledging fun

We had one of the home ed groups xmas parties today, I did face painting, K originally had a pretty uninspiring request for a pirate, on the way home he decides he wants to be a t-rex so I re did it and I did one that uses the mouth as the dinos mouth not perfect but OK for a first attempt, I have a feeling it will be requested again.
We then had to clean it all off to go to swimming lessons :)

Festively pimped gnome house!

Last night instead of doing the 500 things on my official to do list I decided to make a Yule tree and garland for the gnome house!

Kailen was delighted this morning when he noticed them, then this afternoon he made another garland and I made some glittery snowflakes for the roof :)

After I'd taken the photos I noticed the 2 gnomes sat at the kitchen table with the acorn cup, not quite sure what they had in there that was so strong to make them fall off their chairs lol
I think this goes some way to making up for the fact that we don't bring our Yule tree in until next weekend. He's seen friends houses decked out and is feeling most left out!
Spent Sunday afternoon at the wildlife trust doing a workshop on willow wreaths, they look so lovely no photo on the camera yet though.

My word it's been a long time

2 cats died and little kitten came to us, he's cute as a button until he turns into psycho cat.

My time is always being eaten up by things so a quick round up of photos. PLus when ever i think of something I'd like to write a wordy post on I never seem able to get to the PC and the moment goes, maybe I should jot it down on pen and paper and develop it from there!
