I love sitting down in the new year, looking back over the last year and writing about my highlights. Looking back 2018 was a really wonderful year with so much special family time, days out, holidays, nights out… We might not have achieved much on the home decorating front but we made so many incredible memories to look back on. I feel so lucky to have such an amazing little family 🙂Read more
Every new year I love to sit and contemplate the year that just ended and think all about the good things that have happened. Sometimes what seemed to be a bad year can look decidedly better this way. Today I can honestly sit and say that 2017 was a wonderful year for our family. I turned 40 *yikes*, we had our first proper relaxing family holiday, my oldest turned 21 and I ran a half marathon! The kids are all really growing up now, the stress and strains of babies & toddlers have left us and we are really enjoying the little extra freedom this brings us all. I can’t wait to see what 2018 will bring us but for now here is a little look back at 2017… Read more
It’s easy to get swept up with the media about how 2016 was such a terrible year. Yes we lost a lot of awesome celebrities and that is very sad but they weren’t people I know, I won’t grieve for them… well I did a bit for Terry Wogan because wow what a guy he was! But I want to remember 2016 for what it was to me and that truth be told was a bloody fantastic year! It was a year of long walks, getting fitter, getting healthier and lots of family time. It was the year I lost almost 5 stone and got myself into a really good place and I’m hoping to continue that in 2017 with some awesome plans.
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
When I think back to 2014 I just remember blackness, the last part of the year was awful and 2015 so far has been the same, I’m getting lower and lower each day and I just have no idea how to dig myself out of it. Read more
