my year...

I wasn't going to do a round up of the year post, I'm not sure why but I didn't really want to look back over each month and pull out what was happening at that time, I know what has happened this year some amazing things, some not so great things but then I was reading several other bloggers year round ups and so went skipping back through my posts, back in January my new years day post makes me smile, so much has indeed changed, we no longer have the xbox or kinectimals, we no longer live where the neighbours we knew so well could come over when they pleased but some things have stayed the same, my mum is still indeed loving her laptop perhaps more than ever, and we again will be seeing in the new year with cups of tea in hand and children tucked up in bed.

So here we go this is my year round up...

2011 saw us leaving behind but looking forward after a shakey start to the year and my blogging resolution being dashed a wobbly start to the year all changed in May when we had the best news of the year and became Toyologists for Toys R us.

Then in June my little boy, my baby started his new school and I set on a new venture and become a homestart volunteer.

The summer months were filled with so much fun as we went on Safari,

visited the local adventure farm in search of Shaun the Sheep, tried our hand bowling and spent a week enjoying the welsh coast!

In between that we were busy testing some of the latest and greatest toys and teaching my littlest to ride his bike, although he didn't quite crack it so that is still on the to do list for 2012!

September brought about new challenges which I had never imagined with my morals and values being tested with the strange affair that was the Mercedes Competition, never before had I been on the receiving end of such a strange course of events and it taught me that there are alot of underhanded people around.

October was filled with fun and we become Ravenzburger PuzzleClub members but on a more serious note found me wondering what it was you wished for, and how sometimes it is the little things which mean the most.

Then as the year has drawn to a close I again learnt that some people will use any underhanded technique to get what they want and warned people NOT to get the phone, I tried to nurture my creative side and Toys R us gave me the opportunity to give something back and we managed to have had a wonderful Christmas.

So there we go, a fun year with a few eventful things to keep us on our toes, now what will 2012 have in store for us?

Whatever it may be I hope we get through it smiling and I wish the very best prosperous new year to everyone!
