All good things must come to an end, and so yesterday we took down the Christmas tree and decorations. Much as I love Christmas, I don't mind taking the decorations down either. By the time the New Year celebrations are over, the Christmas cards are starting to look too cluttered to me and I love how much bigger the living room looks once the tree is down.
I let the boys keep their new toys around the living room while the Christmas stuff is around, but once it all goes away then it's time to find new homes for the new toys, which we did yesterday as well. Now I'm feeling very satisfied with my de-cluttered house :0)
2010 started with our littlest man just learning to sit up.........
..........and ended with him finding his feet
Our oldest is the same age as this century so the beginning of 2010 saw him turn 10.
Easter 2010 was spent visiting friends in Northern Ireland, where we visited all the touristy sites, including the Giant's Causeway.
In the summer Alasdair turned 1
In the summer I took the plunge and started up my blog. My very first post is here.
The rest of our year has been documented on here but highlights include our summer holidays at my parents' and my new found love of crochet.
I think that should be enough background reading!
What better way to end a review of my blog-year than with a selection of photos of cakes?
(and yummy berries!)
Here's hoping that 2011 will be equally yummy!
