Competition Entry: Moments that Mattered in 2013

Mummy’s little monkey have a fabulous competition sponsored by Lloyds Bank to win an iPad mini.  Its all about taking a moment to stop and think every now and again, what are the moments that mattered?

When I discovered this competition the first thing I did was to look back on the photos on my phone, even that just made me smile!  What a fabulous year I had fulled with fun, here are some of my highlights:

2013 started off a little badly for me.  But as usual I picked myself up, dusted myself off, and started again.  It was really nice when William arrived though, my rescue dog who travelled all the way from Greece just to give me a cuddle!

I love to travel and was keen to visit a new destination this year to explore a different culture.  I was lucky to participate in a Grundvtig photography workshop in Romania.  Fabulous people and delicious food!

As always this year I was reminded what fabulous friends I have.  We hired a cottage and had a ‘Halloween’ themed weekend away, complete with pumpkin carving competition.  Although we got lots of strange looks in the local pub when we rocked up in our fancy dress!

My best friend is my rock year after year, and we have so many ‘moments’ I feel priviledged.  A highlight of last year was a cookery weekend we attended in the beautiful Cotswolds, look at the concentration……  this was probably as we’d had a few glasses of wine at lunch!

Christmas is always a special time of year, and it was great fun spoiling William with his first Christmas dinner, I hope we will enjoy many more together in the years to come.  (Note: He ate everything except the sprouts, then snored loudly on the settee afterwards. It seems dogs are like their owners)!

You need a blog to be able to enter this competition.  But I have to say this was a very enjoyable task!  Its worthwhile to stop for a moment and reflect on the good times, as we so often focus on the bad.  If you do enter this competition please let me know in the comments below.  I’d love to see your moments from last year, and here’s to lots of magical ones in 2014 for us all.  Be lucky!
