Cheerio 2013!

That was quite a year, wasn’t it?

DorkyDad and I had a lovely time out at the Taste of Tasmania festival last night, and we were reflecting on what big changes there have been in our lives over the last twelve months. I thought I’d spend the last afternoon of 2013 pulling together a short roundup of posts and images from the blog. I hope you enjoy them.

Thanks so much for reading DorkyMum over the last twelve months. Every comment, every page view and every shared post still fills me with surprise and delight. I may not have the most readers in the parent blogosphere, but I definitely have the best ones…

Much love to you and your families – I hope 2014 is full of laughter, love and happiness.

We try not to include each other’s posts in the roundups – nothing worse than blogger nepotism – but I’m breaking that rule this week to include a brilliant post from Chris called Blogging Is A Minefield. It deals with some of the big questions that every blogger has to answer about whether their blog reflects their values, and she’s had a great reaction to the post; rightly so. Continue reading
