2012 Review in pictures

It dawned on me the other day that my old blog ran from 2008 until Feb of this year and only really stopped because I was being less crafty, too busy and was fed up of someone reading about me when they really had no business to be doing so!

My New Years resolution is to blog again - I actually quite miss it and all my blogger friends, but I have decided to have a whole new blog because 'In the Zone' was dedicated to my crafty life and I feel this one may be more of an online diary with some random craft thrown in on occasion!!

2012 was supposed to have been the best ever!! I turned 40 and it was all supposed to have been just fabulous! I won't bore you with the details but the last six months have been extremely difficult on the work front and has in turn had a huge impact on my home life, but onward and upward as they say. Surely 2013 cant get any worse???

So, what else did I get up to in 2012 apart from work?

January - we had snow!

February - I turned 40!

March - baby Fred was born (not to me I hasten to add!!)

April - I think was busy with work and not much else? Honestly can't remember but that's old age for you!!!

May - I went to Cornwall for 3 days for work.

June - was my BIG birthday trip to America

July - was quite hot and was spent in the garden and the Olympics came to London

August - involved BBQ's and labradoodles!!

September  -  interesting local finds and Olympic mascots and Cheddar weekend

October - new tattoo and photography weekends in Dorset and Cheltenham.

November - new sofas to replace the nibbled ratty ones and more photography.

December - Mulled wine with friends, Christmas parties and Christmas

and darling Barney went over the bridge to the rainbow :(

And so that brings me to the end of 2012! 
Tomorrow is New Years Eve, not  usually a favourite of mine but am going to go out with some new friends after work which should be fun and am looking forward to seeing the back of 2012!!
I hope that next year is full of new fun and new friends and all the problems and disappointments of this year will fade to a distant memory.

Wishing you all a HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
