Well for January we have had a lovely week, it’s been dark and miserable but that hasn’t stopped us. The kids are enjoying being at school again and I’m really enjoying all the exciting things that are going off in my life right now too. I am the happiest I remember being for a long long time… long may it continue! Read more
This year we have big plans to make our house beautiful, starting with a new bathroom in February which I will be writing more about very soon but today I wanted to concentrate on our living room as it is my favourite room in the house and I want it to be a perfect space for our family and also suitable for entertaining guests.
Happy New Year everyone. I hope you have all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year. My kids are both back at school today so I am catching up with work etc. I was so ready to return to a bit of normality this year, I’m not sure why as I am usually one of those Mums who moan when her kids go back to school but I think they have really missed school and their friends over Christmas so they were really ready to back. I’ll be missing them so much by the end of the day 😉
Last year I set myself a really difficult (for me) challenge, during 2014 I read a total of 2 books, I love reading but just wasn’t finding the time for it so I started the book a week challenge during 2015. I wasn’t surprised that I failed but I was pleased that I pushed myself to find the time to do more reading. I managed a total of 20 books during 2015 so I didn’t do too bad (for me). The first half of the year I was really good, I even read the whole of the Twilight series in just two weeks but then things (Netflix) got in the way and instead of picking up a book I was picking up my iPad for a fix of The Vampire Diaries or such like.
I love looking back at all the photos I have taken, I have completed so many ‘year in pictures’ projects now and it is such a wonderful way to create memories. I never struggle to find a photo for a card or a frame as I take so many so I will continue this year too and do 2016 in pictures. Last year I also found out about the One Second Everyday project, which is where you take a second video from each day and stitch those together, well I only found out about that in August but I loved the idea so much that I started doing that too, I uploaded them to my youtube account yesterday if you fancy taking a look at those. But for now I’m looking back at 2015 and remembering it with a smile Read more
