Happy New Year Everyone!

Yes, I'm late, but if people are still wishing me a HNY when they come in at work, I think I can wish all you guys a HNY too.

When should it stop, I don't know.

We are still debating when to take down the Chrissy lights out the front of the house - driving up the street at night, we are certainly not the last!

Summer hols for us often means a trip down the beach - this time only for a few days due to work - urgh!

We had one extra this time which was lovely for my girls - DD1's bestie - a great girl who is quite accomplished in putting up a huge tent by herself and her two assistants!  
My two wouldn't know what to put where!  Bestie also introduced us to the concept of 'glamping' - I likey!

I hope 2013 is a series of leaps and bounds, of soft sandy landings, of thrills and daring, of two (just) emptied wine glasses, and of beautiful skies.

almost forgot the Whippys!  They love a race.
