River came down with chicken pox on January 1st.  Willow started with it on the 14th.  I'm having a colonoscopy tomorrow.

We've decided that this year won't properly start until Tuesday, which will be our 14th anniversary.  Funny how 2014 didn't seem to have a January in it at all...

I have a mammoth update post all written out but it's ridiculously long.  I'm going to chop it up and post a bit every day, once I'm into  my own personal new year.

(There are a lot of 14s in this entry.  Odd.  Or, I should say, even.)

We had a golden summer this year. The heatwave, which seemed to oppress so many people on the mainland, just made our windswept island pleasantly warm and, sometimes, wonderfully hot. We spent hours on the beach and had many many picnics. Because we know we'll never have three months off all together again, we tried to do lots of family things: climbing hills, visiting the wildlife park, going to the Royal Agricultural Show, finding new playgrounds.

River carried a big rock to the top of a hill to add to the cairn there.



LOTS of photos under the cut. )
