Happy New Year! 2011 was a big year for us. It started off with a fiercely intense house hunt that saw us nearly buying a house in March, only to be pipped to the property post by other buyers. Somewhat deflated, we recharged our batteries in Sardinia only to resume the house search once back in exotic Kassel. In April we viewed the house that was to become ours for the first time, and on August 1st the sale had finally gone through and we received our keys. Pottery was hauled from one place to the next, a move organised and accomplished (with the last of the boxes cleared from the basement a week before Christmas), and the first winter holiday season celebrated in our new/old home. Phew!
The year in blogging was as enjoyable to me as ever. Many thanks to top commenters littleowlski, Brismod, Fat Cat, sevenstarsimages, Monica, and all new and occasional commenters and readers for your input and kind words and the glimpses I get into your lives while offering up some of my own. May 2012 bring us all good health and happiness, not to mention love, and continued joy in our homes, wherever they may be.
