My favourite 365 pics from 2014.

Well I am very proud of myself for sticking at the project not just one year but three. It is an amazing thing to look back on, to see the highs and lows of life, and to remember what I was doing.

So I was asked to choose my favourite picture from each month, not easy when you have to whittle 365 down to 12. But here we go.


The twins at  two months old - my goodness have they have grown and developed. Here they are with a new toy each chosen for them by Bob.

two happy smiley faces. 


I spotted this rainbow and the darker sky above it and below it, and had to stop the car and take this picture through the windscreen.

didn't find the pot of gold 


The very definition of my blog, taking out the grandchildren and having fun with them. This was Bob hanging around in a localish park.

This was Bob's birthday cake. He asked for a minion cake and I have to say I excelled myself and it turned out much better than I expected. 

Bob and his cake


We took up geocaching at the start of 2014. On the 28th to mark the anniversary of the passing of Short Dog we placed our first cache.

Took the twins to the park while daughter run son in law to work. This was the first time Dinky had been in a swing, she was not overly keen and was only on for two minutes.

For those that followed my blog last year you will know the story that was told with this picture. If you don't and your interested you can read the sorry saga here Sadly this was the last time I saw him, just wish I knew why.

Son No2 Daughter No1 and the twins 


Four new additions to the family this week. Meet Beryl, Wilma, Penny and Gertrude, the grandchildren named them not us.

This is daughter No2 who comes down to visit, this time it so happened to be on her birthday. Birthdays cannot go by without a cake to celebrate, its just what we do. So as she likes chocolate and gooey thats what she got. The centre had been hollowed and filled with a box of roses.

Not a lot of blogger events come to Scotland, but I had an e-mail saying there was a Currys bake off coming to the cook school in Glasgow, so how could I not go?

This month is harder to pick, have six birthdays this month so more than one child with a cake, and a cake made by granddaughter for me, so this is the one I decided to share.

Hosting the unwrapping of presents on what we call Christmas No2. Again this is what my blog is all about, the love for my children and grandchildren.
