My top five moments of 2009

being new to this blogging business malarky it was super duper nice to receive a tag from a fellow (and respected) blogger who has helped me from the start with my own blog and has become my real life (yes as in we have seen each others actual faces!)buddy.

The rules are to thank the person who tagged you, (TA MUCHO KELLY!xxx) list your top 5 highlights from 2009 and then tag 5 more bloggers to do the same.

So here goes.....

1. In January 2009, Monty started walking properly. It was a long time coming as he had reached the grand old age of 16months! I had started to wonder if he was ever going to move away from the furniture, well he did and he never looked back. Now his motto is ' why walk when you can run?!!!'

2.March 2009 - the gorgeous husband took me to London, to celebrate our February birthdays. We stayed at the Hilton in Canary Wharf, ate out a lot, took trips up and down the Thames on a boat, went to a music exhibition at The O2 arena where my yummy man played guitar with KT Tunstall (OK it was a simulation) and we entered the dance box to do the 60's dance 'the block' and then also jumped around like loons to madness for the 'ska style' dance, OK another simulation for us to view back on video but we laughed much and had a lotta fun! The HIGHLIGHT though, we seeing Paul Weller at the O2. Immense. I have no more words. Other than I freaking adore P.W! (And my Mr!)

3. In July 2009 we found out we were expecting Pickle. (Insert warm rosy glow and goofy grin.)

4. In September 2009 Monty started Nursery School having just turned 2. It was the first time he had been in any form of childcare and I was so proud of him in his little uniform, carrying his monster lunch box, all growed up and going to 'big boy school!'

5.December 2009- I call this potty training month, I researched, I prepared, I knew he was ready, the day of beginning came...... a whole load of poo and pee in the wrong places occurred. 2 weeks later it finally clicked and my boy is brillo pads! He has the occasional accident but lets not forget he's not even 2 and a half yet. He tells us when he needs the potty, we never have to nag him to try to go and now he has started to ask to go on the bog boy toilet. Proud Mummy? I RECKON SO!!!

So there we have it! 5 highlights.
