So, because I missed St Paddy's day with the boys, we decided to hire a waterslide and celebrate the milestone today; not least because it was a public holiday. . . and, no, we are not Irish.
I then blink and, without warning, we're suddenly bidding February a heartfelt fairwell and then, of course (caught off-guard), it's already much too late.
Well, this year I am doing a lot of things much more differently and, seeing as I've been given an extra day, with it being leap-year, I thought why not, before we advance full steam into the new wedding season.
As you would have gathered from this wee blog, I'm not much for resolutions, but, there is something incredibly gratifying about looking back and reflecting on all those great little moments that added up to one fantastic year.
Happy LEAP YEAR... and now for some of my favourites from the 2011 season:
To all the romantic's out there; Happy Valentine's Day....xoxo.

Here we are, already in the first week of February. Blimey, did January go by so unexpectedly super-fast for anyone else, or is it just me?
Anyhow, in early January, we hired a houseboat for the day, bobbing along at a snail's pace on the Vaal river and then over-nighting at a picturesque quayside, just in time for a wondrous sunset (and glass of Chardonnay).
As usual, I took thousands of photos in the hope of preserving these childhood memories forever. . .
For those who have asked me a number of times; we hired the boat from Old Willow Boats
