It's been a little while

I cannot believe I haven't blogged since Blogmas!

Time is going by so quickly - how are we almost half way through the year already?!

What's been happening so far in 2018

My baby girl turned one in February. It feels like ages ago now but we all had a wonderful day. Luckily her birthday fell on a Saturday so we had family over to ours for a little party on the day and then the following week she had afternoon tea with her friends from my antenatal group, which was lovely.

Towards the end of February we went down to Dorset for 5 days for a little break. We stayed in a gorgeous woodland park in a cosy lodge. Unfortunately we had really heavy snow on our 4th day so set off home a little early. It was a scary drive back to Kent but Danny expertly navigated us home.

At the start of March I returned to work. I do continue to struggle with mum guilt every day but it was awful at first. I literally went back full time straight away so it was a shock to us all. I'm more into a routine now but I have enormous respect for working mummy's, especially full time because it is bloody hard!

Since then, life has been ticking by with not much happening beyond working and really valuing my weekends for family time. I make the most of every free second I have to be with my little pickle.

Merry Christmas | Blogmas Day 25


December has gone by in such a flash! I didn't think I would be able to finish Blogmas and I am so proud that I have done it. It is bloody hard work so hats off to everyone that has done it. 

I hope everyone is having the most amazing Christmas Day. However you choose to spend it, I hope it is perfect in every way. 

For my entire life Christmas has always been spent not just celebrating Christmas, but my brother's birthday and this is the first year without him. Steve, wherever you are I hope you are celebrating and can see how much you are loved and missed every day. 

I will be back in a few days with another post. 'Til then, have fun, be kind to yourself and make it count :)

Reflection | Blogmas Day 24

It's Christmas Eve! Let the celebrations begin.

For me, this year has been a weird one. It has been the best and the worst year of my life so far and as Christmas approaches I find myself looking back on a whirlwind of a year...

Christmas Movies 2.0 | Blogmas Day 23

Two more posts to go! I cannot believe tomorrow is Christmas Eve! I am so pleased I have managed to get through and complete Blogmas. Although I made the decision to do it in the last week of November, and without so much preparation it has been hard work, it has also been so worth it! I will be putting in a lot more preparation next year though!

Unfortunately at the time of writing this my little girl is really poorly, so I'm afraid it's another re-hashed post from a few Christmases back as I don't have much time. This time I'm offering my favourite Christmas films and feature lengths, and it hasn't changed from 2014 so that's a relief - phew!!

Would You Rather... Christmas Edition | Blogmas Day 22

Loubee Lou Blogs tagged me into the 'Would You Rather... Christmas Edition' tag and so I thought it would be good to incorporate it into my Blogmas! Thank you Louisa for the tag! Here are my answers:

Eat Brussel sprouts or cauliflower cheese?

That is a tough one as I'm not keen on either of them. I think I slightly prefer cauliflower though so I'll opt for that one.

Have twinkling lights or still lights?

Twinkling lights on my tree definitely. However, I would prefer them still to the raving flashing setting. Who actually uses that setting?
