Happy new year, even if a little late!

I was having a facial on Tuesday and my beautician asked me if I have made any new year's resolution. Bless her...she is only 18 and very sweet. My answer was, "I am too old for all that, if there was anything I wanted to do, I would have done it by now." LOL. No new resolution for me this year.
The boys went back to school yesterday. We have had a great long holiday and I was a bit worried about driving condition what with the snow. Fortunately the city is quite clear and the schools have been very good about keeping the roads and path clear. But the happiest thing for me is I have had some opportunity to scrap and I can share these with you.
First up is H, sporting a turquoise cast! He slipped on ice outside the village shop. Poor thing, you might think but he is absolutely find and mobile except when it comes to school work and music practise. It is coming off on Monday and he is delighted he has a few days to show it off at school. I finally get to use some Ikea plasters too.
Next up are some photos of the boys playing in the pool. My parents gave J the inflatable dolphin over 10 years ago but we've never had the opportunity to put it to good use. Last summer, we finally had a pump and a pool handy so we took him out. I am not sure if you can read the journalling but our house rule is you must wait for the other person to fall off before it is your turn. Unfortunately for H, J is a natural at it. H had to wait and wait until eventually J let him have a go. Only problem was, H fell off pretty much immediately, every time!
Last up is our rare, whole-of-family photo whilst on safari in Kenya. Our guide, Rashid took it. We were up on some look up point on the shores of Lake Nakuru with the lake in the background. No real story here, I will probably make a companion LO to contain the story and more animal day.
Spot the recurring theme, I think I might have finally used up those BAM POP frames. I love them and was saving them for something, someday special. All LOs are special, right ? Otherwise what is the point of making them ? So the special day for those frames is right now. I think it the turn of some K&Co butterfly die cut sheet next...

Fab LO's Ifa, really inspiring and colourful. Those ikea plasters are a great idea and really effective! xx

I like your thinking! Yes, all LO's are special and I need to stop hoarding my favourite things. It's always good to see some new pages from you.
