It has been a busy year, here at The Syders. It began in January with crisp blue skies and by the time we reached February we had heavy snowfall. Of course, The Syders love the snow and we had a great time.
When February half term arrived we were back to blue skies and bike rides with our Granddaughter
Then I found an old camera film that belonged to my Mum's which I was thrilled to find family photo's from 1996 in the home I grew up in.
We went to Disney On Ice
We got a cute Bunny
We had a great Easter, spent with Family.
We Crabbed on the river...
We went to Brighton Pier
And BBQ'd Some More
We celebrated a 21st Birthday and The Queens Diamond Jubilee all on the same weekend
We had a successful year of homeschool. Our youngest concentration and writing skills have improved and our eldest started college.
Then our hearts were broken when we lost our old pal. I thought I would never stop crying.
We spent time on the water to take our minds away from losing our friend.
We enjoyed a great day out in London and the Olympics on TV
We had happy kids as we rescued more hens...
And a rather handsome Cockerel
We Grew Veggies...
We enjoyed summer campfires and toasted marshmallows
My Sister in Law and her lovely family moved to Essex...Five minutes from us.
I have had some amazing blog opportunities this year and one of them was visiting the Czech Republic with Cow & Gate and watching Ella from Purple Mum juggle apples in the middle of a Czech orchard was a fabulous experience.
We enjoyed carnival and the fair.
I decided to finish my degree...
at long last
We went to Center Parcs, where we celebrated our 23rd wedding anniversary
We enjoyed nice meals out
And cosy food in
We have ended 2012 with a wonderful Christmas that was busy, noisy and fun, surrounded by precious Family & Friends
(This photo shows how busy)
So what will 2013 bring for The Syders? I haven't a clue, but whatever it brings we will make the most of every single day and cherish the people we love!
Happy New Year to you all. Hope its a Good one!
