Reflecting on 2011

Kicked off the year in Burnham on Crouch with good friends and little Flo.
Me and Brooke got to the final on Pointless
Started going to the NCT Redbridge knitters and made some lovely knitting mum mates
Flo turned 1
Flo broke her arm
Got kicked out of our flat and moved in with my parents for 5 months
We had a couple of sunny seaside trips to Southend and Leigh on sea
Flo learned to walk during the Royal wedding
Went Crafternooning at the Creative Biscuit with local mates
Went back to work after maternity leave to one of the most pointless jobs I’ve ever done
Flo started nursery
Karaoke, fish pedicure (eww) and Michelin starred dinner for my Birthday
Day out in Greenwich
Rex Manning day
Bought our first house
Got broken into 2 weeks after moving in
Decorated Flo’s bedroom
Started a new job which was MUCH better than the previous one
Brett passed his driving test
Visited Kew
10 year anniversary of being together with Brett
Brett turned 30 and had a ‘surprise’ party, which he tired to sabotage
Shan and Marc’s wedding
Centre Parcs
Digs continued to record our lives in photography
Filmed Brett and Flo for a Dad documentary at work
I dressed as a Smurf, and then Mick Hucknall
Held a kids Halloween party and kids Christmas party
Made a lot of cake

Knitted the following:
Hap Blanket
Stripey cardi for Inez
Blue lacey top
Flo crochet dress
Isla’s camo pants
Nola Jane
Free Rapunzel
Custard pants
Leaf scarf
Cardi for Milan
Christmas Bolero
And I made 2 quilts

Excellent 2011. Bring on 2012.
