My Annual round up of the year is mostly photos connected with moving, which took forever. Six months from having my offer accepted to actually moving in. Luckily it's like childbirth, soon forgotten once it's done!
January. We were locked down and I started packing boxes and lived with them all around for weeks.
February saw more snow fall than we've had for many years. I was stuck up the end of the lane for several days with a drift in front of the garage.
March and my buyers were keen to move in so we exchanged and I moved out into a holiday let bungalow in Old Newton a village only a few miles from both old home and my new bungalow. It was tucked into the end of a cul-de-sac - no view!
Hopes of getting moved quickly faded and as the holiday let was needed I spent a couple of weeks in a caravan at the Stonham Barns before moving back to Old Newton.
Finally there was completion on the bungalow and I moved in during the first week of May
In June things were getting back to normal and for me that means car boot sales and my best bargain was the plant stand. Which was a bit rough but after sanding down and painting slate grey it stands on the patio looking very good.
I got my greenhouse sorted in July and I'm very ready to start growing as soon as possible in 2022.
In August Eldest daughter+ bump and Eldest Grandson came to stay for a week and we went to Framlingham Castle
Also in August I watched lots of sport on TV and picked up small bargains from many boot sales.This photo is just one haul
In September I hauled all the "things that shouldn't have moved with me" out of the garage and joined in the village yard sale event
October saw the arrival of Grandchild number 5, my third Grandson.
Every month I add the photo of the library books I've requested and collected from the mobile library to the blog. Always lots of comments saying "thank you for ideas" which is good to know and I also love to get ideas from other blogs too.
Left to right Youngest Granddaughter and her brother Middle Grandson- who live the closest to me. Eldest Granddaughter who is over near the coast is holding her cousin. Then Eldest and Youngest Grandsons...... the two Surrey boys.
And that was 2021.
Thank you to everyone for reading and commenting through yet another year of My Quiet Life in Suffolk.
