JYC Days 30-32. A Review of 2011 and a Party

New Year's Eve saw us celebrating with family. The combined age of the guests was 431, but that didn't stop us partying it up. We ate curry and toasted the New Year, but we were all tucked up in bed by 12.30!

This was I was faced with when I got up:

2011 was the year that:
                                   I spent a lot more time on my blog: 10 regular blog hops / classes 
                                   I forgot my PIN and had to wait a week for a new one
                                   We all took part in a family Wii contest
                                   We travelled to France by Eurotunnel for the first time
                                   R graded from 8th to 6th Kyu in karate
                                   R performed in Beauty and the Beast
                                   We celebrated the Royal Wedding with a garden party
                                   M made an Easter bonnet
                                   We picked strawberries from May to October
                                   R got a piece of work on The Golden Board at school
                                   I graded to 7th Kyu in karate
                                   We followed Britain's Got Talent and The X Factor
                                   We went to see 'Rio' to celebrate M's birthday
                         I started the new term on my own while P and the children stayed in France
                                   M started Reception - no more childminder
                                   We put up new bookshelves in the lounge
                                   P used our house in France for a school trip
                                   We discovered new restaurants in France and at home
                                   M gave up her night time bottles
                                   P and I got a new laptop, a kindle and a Blackberry Playbook

Who knows what 2012 will bring? I am looking forward to several school holidays in France, my French A Level exams, the Queen's Jubilee celebrations and a day at the London 2012 Paralympics (ssh- don't tell R, it's a surprise). I'll take my camera, of course, and I'll share it with you.

I hope your 2012 is everything you hope it will be.

Happy New Year. Hope 2012 is as fun packed as 2011 seems to have been.
