Goodbye 2011

Hi there. The house is quiet for a little while. Mr M has taken the kids to the pool.
I have made a pot of tea and am about to review my year in pictures.


Our new year got off to a pretty ordinary start with floods and other nasty things happening.

Thankfully a beach holidays cheered us up no end.


was much better.

Lulu approved of the homemade pasta.


Was quite productive.

Started on the phone table seat.
Yet to be finished.


The obsession with star garlands began.

And the evenings got longer.


Lulu had a kennel makeover.

And the boys started footy.

(Yes, I do feed him, and no he doesn't have worms
You can't fatten a thoroughbred!)


Um err, well, new boots. Best footwear investment of the year!

We marvelled at the stick shed.


We huddled under cosy rugs.

Saw a great old farm.


We kept ourselves toasty by the firepit.


I spring cleaned the bathroom. 
I still love that new rug.


And visited the beach.


Miss B did her tutorial.
Thank you for being so kind and supportive.


I had a thing for garlands.
Old maps.

And Stars.

Thank you to each and every one of you who came along for the ride this year.

To those who took the time to comment. A huge thank you. Those comments are great to receive and motivate me to keep going.

To those who didn't comment, thank you for reading and maybe, just maybe in 2012, you will come out of lurkdom and leave a little message.

So for the last time this year.

Thanks for reading Let's go Moerkabout.

I hope your 2012 is excitipating!
