The year 2014 in photos - Week 1

Well here I am again! My third year of Project 52.  (I don't try for the 365 but I don't always play by the rules and often post more than one picture - rebel without a cause and all that!) I did consider jacking it in but in truth it is what keeps my blog going on those weeks when it just seems too hard to blog for whatever reason and I do quite enjoy my (very) little corner of the t'internet. I truly appreciate all those lovely people who bother to read and comment - thank you. I may decide on a theme for my project later but this week has just been about actually getting the post published!

This year has started with more rain than most of us could imagine. The holidays have been mainly spent holed up indoors watching lots of films and doing lego and suchlike. We managed a family night out to the local curry house for New Year's Eve and on New Year's Day we did a roast with the biggest Yorkshire pudding ever! We also managed to escape the next day for a walk at the National Trust's Devil's Punch Bowl in the Surrey Hills where we got very muddy and admired the Exmoor ponies. In other news - this week is very late as bloody laptop has decided to partially die on me (again) so lets hope next week brings better weather and a laptop that works! Happy New Year everyone and good luck to all those embarking on there new 2014 photo projects - may the force be with you!

The biggest Yorkshire Pudding ever!  (not sure why but although this photo is saved in the other orientation on my computer, blogger insists on putting it this way round!)

They spent ages playing in this bank of trees - I was just impressed by the height!

We loved this area with lots of trees with green 'feet' - this one was the best with huge green monster feet! 
For all the other brave and foolhardy starting off on their 2014 photo project go and check out the Boy and Me's linky:
