Hello. Anybody still reading?
We hope you all had a wonderful, gluttonous Christmas and a bright start to the New Year.
Admittedly, we're a little late in bidding farewell to 2011 and hello to 2012. But while we recover from the festivities and get over a nasty sickness bug, we'll leave you to view our year in pictures.
A home and many shelves packed into boxes, a precious table carefully moved, a 60th birthday and a supper to celebrate Scotland.
A flurry of suppers here, here and here, birthday merriment, the last supper and a baby growing fast.
A feast, a butchery workshop we never got to blog about, delicious roast lamb providing energy, a precious baby girl arrives, amazement, awe, love. Cakes for visitors, delicate wild garlic, new light, a new home, a Royal Wedding and baby's first picnic.
