Another year has come to an end once again. How time flies! As is now tradition on my little blog( a new tradition of two years!) here is a quick roundup of my year….in pictures.
January had its ups and downs. We lost our beautiful old labrador Jake which hit us hard. And my family’s farm came out of the family when my Uncle retired. So a pretty emotional month. I did get chance to go for a fun family meal with my lovely sister and cousins.
In February Wil and I managed a night away in Leeds and saw one of our fave singers ‘Newton Falkner’. I also started making teacup candles again after a month off.I like to sell them at craft fairs.
March was the first month I joined in with Janeys Photo an Hour Challenge and Slinky the cat appeared in it of course. 🙂
Easter Monday fell in April and the sun was shining so we had a day out at the seaside. 🙂 Morecambe Bay is a gorgeous area to visit if you’re ever in Lancashire. I also spent the day in Manchester with some of my besties.
In May I purchased a beautiful vintage suitcase from a craft fair friend. Its covered in postage stamps from all over the world. 🙂 And I spent a few days at my Mums in the lovely Lakes.
We had our first camping trip of the year in June at Appletreewick in the Yorkshire Dales.
July was a pretty special month! Not only were we lucky enough to watch the beginning of the ‘Tour de France’ in Yorkshire, we saw the end too in Paris. Both experiences were fantastic and although not a huge cycling fan, I enjoyed myself very much. We spent four nights in Paris and it was my first time there and was as wonderful as I imagined it would be.
August was all about the seaside.:) My friend Jo booked a beach hut day in St Annes for our mate Maz’s birthday.We made a day of it and despite the blustery weather, had a fab
time.Also went camping with Wil on the coast at a great little site ‘Red Bank Farm’ near Morecambe.
In September I enjoyed taking some pics at the ‘Ribble Valley Mod Weekender’ and helped celebrate a friends birthday with cocktails in the clouds ~ well almost, Cloud23 in Manchester.
Exciting times too in October with a lifetime ambition to visit Iceland achieved! An otherworldly destination I would love to return to. 🙂 There was also a fun and interesting walk with friends and family along the Pendle Sculpture trail ….and we welcomed a new edition to the family. Hugo!
November meant Hugo was old enough to take out on his first walks. 🙂 And Wil treated me to Afternoon tea at a posh restaurant for my birthday.
And its now December ! Looking back at my year it looks like I have certainly got out and about a bit. The Take12trips challenge I participated in certainly inspired me in that I think. Might be something I could go back to next year. Mostly though 2014 has been a great one spent with the people I love. Aw. 🙂 Heres to a fab 2015!
