Happy New Year and a look back at 2016

Happy New Year Looking Back

A Look Back

At this time of year, I like to have a look back over the previous year on my blog and pick a favourite post from each month.



The girls loved making home-made butter. It tasted delicious but it was hard work!

Ella made an ‘Ella-henge‘ which was a model of her version of Stonehenge for a school project. We were very proud of the effort she put into it.

Frogspawn first appeared in the pond Ant had made the spring before. I was so excited!

Ant did a makeover on our stairs and I love them.

Kaycee organised a Big Board Game day for the NSPCC at her school. A total of £220 was raised and we were very proud of our Kaycee 🙂

Kaycee started secondary school. She’s growing up too fast for my liking.

Ella loved the Halloween buffet tea we made. It’s her favourite holiday!

Of course my favourite post from December has to be the one about our Christmas day.


Thanks for being with me through 2016 and I hope 2017 is a brilliant year for everyone 🙂
