Almost there

Almost ready to welcome in the new year. The jigsaw should be finished tomorrow too.

Time for the 2021 wrap, with just a day left this year. A selection of 12 highlights from the last 12 months.

February - the move to Haddington with the keys to the new house. Later that month, but before we actually moved in, we celebrated Holly's 30th.

March-May - we did a lot in the garden this year. From a blank canvas to somewhere we can enjoy BBQs. There's still a lot we'd like to do, but it will take time.

April - not so much a highlight of the year, but a blip we both enjoyed putting together. Time for a haircut.

May - we ended last year with news of the vaccine breakthrough, and we've ended this one triple-jabbed

June - for the first time in 23 years, Scotland's men's team made an all too brief appearance at a major finals, with the delayed Euro 2020.

August - One of only two trips to Forres this year, so we got delayed birthday pictures for Paige and Hayley.

September - our one and only day in the office this year. A reorientation day ahead of a return, but who knows when.

October - we'd been hiding a secret for over 12 weeks, but to be able to see our baby for the first time was amazing. Timed nicely to be able to see both families to deliver the news in person.

October - celebrating my 40th with a trip to Forres. Having started running in July, I set myself a target to be able to do 5k by my birthday. When the day came, even rain didn't put me off.
