Review of 2013

I had a great time in 2013, here are the highlights:
 My new niece Alice was born just before my birthday.
I enjoyed walking in the snow.
I taught myself to crochet a ripple blanket.
I really enjoyed doing Project Life, still need to do 33 weeks to catch up on this year though :)
I met online friends in real life.
I got new ink.
I went on a Gromit hunt.
I went to the air show at Bournemouth.
I enjoyed a hog roast at my brother's 40th birthday.
I spent time with the whole family.
I spent time with friends and went to an old work reunion.
I walk 10k with my brother and sisters to raise over £1000 for Alzheimer's research.
I spent lots of time on the beach.
I carried on with my weight loss.
I spent time with Pippy.
I spent time with Paul.
I spent time with Alfie.
And I spent lots of time with Maddie.
Oh and there might have been cake along the way!

All in all 2013 was a good year and now I'm looking forward to 2014 and the adventures it will bring.

I hope you had a good year.

Thanks for stopping by

My Most Precious

It's the very last Story Telling Sunday and that makes me a bit sad.  I have really enjoyed telling stories and reading the stories of everyone else who has joined in for the last three years.  It's all been thanks to Sian over at From High in the Sky.

This year has all been about picking our precious and my precious for the very last story was a no brainer, here she is:
My beautiful, funny daughter who goes by the names of:

Samantha Rose Daisy
Samantha Rose
Maddie and
Boobar Rushdedardee!
Everyone calls her something different and I'm surprised that she hasn't ended up with split personalities!
I had a couple of miscarriages before I had Maddie and a couple after, I even had a threatened miscarriage when I was carrying her so she has always been very special.She surprises me with her intelligence, her sense of humour and the way she treats those less fortunate than herself.
She loves to photo bomb everything!
And even though she's 19 (and a half) she still likes to fall asleep cuddling her mum!
We live together and work together and I love it. She makes me laugh every day and makes my heart melt when she randomly comes up to me and hugs me.  There has only been the two of us for the last 14 years and we have such a special bond.
More often than not she is the adult in our relationship :) She checks all of my blog posts for me because I just can't spell so, as this one is a surprise for her, it's probably riddled with spelling and grammatical errors which will drive her mad!
I think know she's beautiful after all she looks like me :)
She has her own sense of style and is definitely not a sheep who follows a flock.

And there's not a day that goes by that I'm not thankful for her, she is definitely the most precious thing in my life.

I love you Boobar xxx

Now it's your turn to head over to Sian's and tell your story.

Thank you for stopping by
