Review of the Year - Looking back at 2013

So here we are on the last day of 2013 and like everyone else in blogland I've been looking back.

For us it has been a record year in so many ways.

The largest amount of gooseberries we've ever picked and sold
The best crop of apples we've ever had
The best crop of pears we've ever had
The most figs that have ripened
The first year we have had 3 poly tunnels
The best income we have ever had from the campsite
The best income we have ever had from selling vegetables and fruit

AND

 The most times a member of the family has gone to hospital by ambulance!
Which resulted in the longest time I've ever spent here on my own.



Here are some of my favourite pictures from 2013
Good series of books recommended by a friend
My best ever hot cross(less) buns

Thank you to everyone who gave advice when I started blogging in April
Thank you to everyone who has read and commented on the blog.
Thank you to everyone who wished us well when Him Outside was in hospital
Thank you to everyone who writes blogs that I enjoy reading


Tomorrow I will be doing my regular review of the month for December and then we will start to find out what 2014 will bring for us all.

Happy New Year
