Today was back to school day, and (on the whole) it went well. We have had an increase in screaming just lately when the little lady decides she doesn't like something (i.e. mummy getting her dressed!) and we had a little bit of that this morning, but I think she was as happy to go back to school as we were to have her there. I wouldn't have thought this time last year that I would be happy to see her go to school, but (as much as I miss her) she genuinely enjoys school - like she did nursery - misses her friends when she isn't there and so I swallow my feelings and make it all happy that school is back on.
We also put Christmas away in the loft today and the house looks all sparkly and clean! Took the opportunity to move the furniture around in the living room and it does make it look a little bigger - I've also now got the prime spot in front of the fire and telly, so I'm happy!
So onto to point of this post - I've seen a fair number of people joining in with Debby's top 5 Christmas cards of 2011 and then favourite cards of 2011. I didn't join in with the Christmas cards - didn't have time - but I'd like to join in with the favourites of 2011. However I can't pick just 5 so I've increased it to 10 - hope that's OK.
I think I've waffled on enough, so I'm not going into reams of details of these cards - and without further ado here they are:
My absolute favourite:
Then the others in no particular order:
My daughter's 4th birthday card:
I liked the sketch so much at Less Is More for this one that I got a bit carried away!
I had to have one Christmas card - as I didn't join in with the Top 5 Christmas cards
Ok, Ok so I went to 13 - but I count the Less is More ones as 1 - that brings it down to 12, then take off the Christmas card that brings it down to 11! So one more than I said.
My goodness the wind has been howling here while I've been typing this! It's blowing a gale down our chimney sounds awful out there! I do hope we don't loose the chimney!!!!
Hopefully I'll be back soon with a new card or two.
See you soon,
