Yesterday evening the husband and I watched Charlie Brooker's Screenwipe review of 2011 (BBC I Player | YouTube). I'd forgotten quite how crazy 2011 has been on a global level. That said, I've had quite an interesting year myself.
So, this time around I am joining in the "review of my year" blogging ritual.
We began 2011 in Austria, visiting family and friends as well as rediscovering my eraser collection.
It was a vehicular first quarter. In February my push bike gave up the ghost and I turned pedestrian for a little while
Soon after we bought our first car
and took some trips
Our wheels gave their last on the way home from a glorious June week in a muddy Glastonury field. Can't blame the old car, it wasn't the only one who didn't want to leave :)
And so I was back to paddling.
We found our raffle ticket to the US Green Card lottery was a winner and I went a bit existential on you guys in the frenzy of form filling as we entered round two of the application process.
I had me some dentistry and lived on milkshake and Co-codamol for a week blissed out at the demise of my troublesome wisdom teeth and no bruising to show for it.
Somewhere along the way I picked up a liking for nail polish :)
After stating loudly that I was unlikely to ever get a tattoo I immediately went and got my first tattoo.
Just as the leafs started changing, Bec of Black Swan's Pond and I took on Camden together.
Indian summer felt like a warm hug after the lukewarm summer.
I found out that fellow style blogger Vicky lives just down the street and it is has been great fun teaming up on weekend photo trips.
Christmas was a festival of laziness in our home. I feel relaxed and ready for a new round. ;)
Let's see what 2012 brings :)
Happy new year!
