2012 – A Year In Pictures

January – Visit to the Imperial War Museum

February – Snow on Peckham Rye

March – a very busy month, 
 F and I celebrated our 4th wedding anniversary, and 10 years together, with a child free weekend away in Somerset
Fabulous bath at the Archangel hotel
If you want to be a big cop in a small town ….

We had another lovely holiday at Coombe Mill Farm in Cornwall (where I found out I was pregnant again!)
Dotty the pig – also expecting

And despite having a bad back and being a little bit pregnant, we got a sneak peak at the Olympic stadium when I became one of the first to try out the track (Mo learnt it all from me, ahem)

April – We had a great day out at one of my former workplaces – Legoland (they didn’t let me operate the rides again though)
This ride may not have been intended for people F’s size!

May – Proof that there was some good weather – just in time for E to try out her new play house

Our first glimpse of Smidge2

June –
Bumps start appearing

Joining in at the Eden Centre
Exploring the dunes…

July – Family Holiday at Centre Parks

August – A great summer for London
The Olympics!!…

E had to say hello to ALL the police horses
E tries out hockey…

Gruffalo cake – I was very proud of this!

September – The Paralympics

I drag my pregnant self to the top of the aquatics centre 

And the velodrome

And the basketball arena for the wheelchair rugby

Then finally admit defeat and get the mobility car back to the station!
