Weekly Photo Challenge: My 2012 In Pictures (Part III)

1 Jan

Bored yet?

In July we hosted the Olympics (Britain, I mean; I can’t see us hosting even a swimming event in our back garden, though it was wet enough).  You sent me photos of what you were doing during the Opening Ceremony.  Most, like mine, showed you eating, drinking and watching telly in your pyjamas:

I danced in the rain:

I had root canal treatment:

My family were sympathetic:

In August it began to feel like autumn, having bypassed summer after a wet and feeble spring.  We went camping with four children and two dogs in torrential rain, but managed a day on the beach:

Before we went away, we put up our new shed.  Here’s Tory Boy drawing a picture of his father on the old shed:

And Spud working hard:

I had poems in a couple of anthologies, including this one:

And yet again I blogged about hair:

September reminded me why I love the Hub so much:

And brought First Contact with another blogger, Pseu:

I wrote my 2000th post:

And discovered my favourite top in a charity shop for £3.50:

Don’t worry!  Only one more post to go.

    Good memories! I’ve saved the Toby (?) flying pic for a haiga – I hope you don’t mind.

    I love that brown top. It goes well with your hair. Very pretty!

    I like the way you’ve done your hair in that last picture… a side parting suits you! And the tops really pretty too.

    You look so beautiful in the picture with your favorite top. I couldn’t stop giggling at the Hub. You have become such a special part of my day. I am so looking forward to sharing 2013 with you and the Hub, Tory and Spud.

    Lots of fun moments in 2013, I see!

    Great memories. I too love your hair with a side parting, it makes you look much younger!

    A totally classy year! The hair coming out of your blouse is indeed my favorite! Although the photo of your dancing in the rain is a wonderful photo. The Hub encased in stickers shows me he’s a very, very good sport! 🙂


I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
