Well moving from the old to the brand new now, and one family have an extra reason to be cheerful in 2013, well three reasons in fact, with their triplets finally coming home after spending months in hospital.
Stuart and Hannah Fraser from Northamptonshire are parents of the country's most premature surviving triplets. The babies were born 16 weeks early after Hannah had problems with her pregnancy.
The babies were so under-developed their skin was almost transparent, but now the family are making up for lost time. Elodie Harper reports.
