We had a jolly old time, here it is in pictures! The build up, the big day, Florence’s 12th birthday, NYE, Jonny’s birthday and all the fun while off school. I would do it all again in a heart beat but first I need time to have a bit of a diet before the next!
We started festive fun early with Stick Man!
That was way back in October so mega early doors but then 2021 and we deserve it right?!
We waited until mid November for the Thursford Christmas spectacular!
The end of November was for The Snowman!
Which we loved!
So gorgeous these two!
And My First Panto at The Garage, Norwich!

Not everyone likes pancakes though!
The only picture I took when friends came for a birthday dinner, so unlike me!
Posie turned 11 months old!
Which made us all wonder if we’re living in a speeded up time bubble!
She’s still the dinkiest dot though!
But harder to photograph lying down!
And then Daddy went back to work, Florence and Gram went to London for a shopping mini break and it was suddenly a bit quieter than I like and definitely felt on the road to back to school…
We of course took a dip to take our mind off it!
Raffie went back one day before Florence and Jimmy, just the afternoon so it was a morning of fun at Gymbo!
One more day of the holidays and then they were over. But it was so much fun – here’s to the next!
