What a year 2012 has brought us. It is our first full year back in England, we have come on leaps and bounds as a family and recovered from a disastrous recession with the thanks to my parents. My mother-in-law has been an amazing help with the kids and allowing us the occasional break from being parents.
We have been lucky enough to see another Olympic in the country we live in, first Vancouver 2010 and now London 2012. We were here for the Queens Jubilee and more importantly we are home for Christmas for a second time running.
Our last Christmas was a frugal one, only getting the kids presents but this year hopes to be a little different in that we all get a bit of something but we never go over the top, we see no point but what we do like to do is have a nice breakfast and dinner on Christmas day which we tend to prep the day before so that we can have a relaxed dining experience.
We have plans to go to Hyde Park to see the Winter Wonderland which I am very much looking forward to and a trip to Harrods where we hope to meet Rebecca and her dog for a bite to eat and a bit of window shopping. And our town is having an ice skating rink built and festivities to enjoy.
