Well it is that time again, we have survived another year and it is time to turn over the calendar. Here is a summary of my year in photos, although possibly not an accurate representation, as it seems to be very sunny in pretty much all of them!
I kicked off the year in the Alps in France, absolutely gorgeous, I love the snow.
Next up, a bit of Welsh snow, and good times with great friends, Ritz are a necessary accessory.
March, spring had sprung, a blizzard of blossoms in Kew Gardens
May, my home town showing its more attractive qualities, it can be quite appealing if you only see it in the sunshine.
June, some success growing green things!
July, an oft-seen view on the line from Dorchester to Bath
September, an excellent day away from the office
Happy new year everyone, here's to an excellent 2013!

Well I seem to have survived through the avalanche of perfume adverts (just about) so now can get down to the actual business of eating far too much and spending good times with family. I'm off to the Alps this year with my brothers to see my Mum and sister, so should be a good one, SNOW!

Some many pretty things to buy..!
You should really buy all this now, come on, what are you waiting for?! you haven't quite got enough stuff yet...
After all, what is Christmas for if not spending money you don't have, filling your house with stuff, and gifting things that will be looked at for 30 seconds before heading right off to landfill in the new year?...
Perhaps I don't need all this crap, just give me some family and some snow. Very happy to be doing a virtually consumption-free christmas this year, apart from consumption of a different kind, hello booze and cheese. I cannot wait to be out of the country, the continuous monotonous loops of perfume ads are doing my head in!
I wish Mr. Smiler was coming though :(

An excellent day with good friends, even if I do feel a bit like Peter Pan (unfortunately not the flying bit). Busy days make the weekend seem to last forever, although possibly partly because I had the day off on Friday as I had a miserable cold. I vote for a 4 day week!

Or at least that's what it feels like when I arrive at work just as the sun is getting up. Really noticing the shortening days this year! At least it is nearly the winter solstice, and I don't mind if the sun hangs around for the rest of the day.

Unfortunately I have had a bit of a busy day, so this picture is a little bit of a cheat as I didn't actually take it today (obviously, too green!), I did however have a good play at editing it, so it will have to do! :)
