One week into 2018 and I finally feel the Christmas chaos is behind us and we are back into our routine. I'm not usually one for setting resolutions - before the kids I managed to stop taking sugar in my tea but that's about it. This year is different. 2017 was a great year for us overall. We moved house. The kids settled well in school/pre-school. But while my business exploded and my blog grew, I very much felt like it was all happening without any control. This year I want to steer it down the right path. Sophie from Life as Mrs D has written her 18 goals for 2018 and I've been inspired to write mine to help keep me focused this year.
Hello 2018! As the year drew to a close I found myself thinking a lot about how my 2017 panned out. It was a super busy year for us and a pretty good one all in all. Thanks to Nina for nominating me to take part in Kate's Highs and Lows of 2017 blogger tag which helped me pin down the special moments (and the not so special). Here's the roundup of my year...
Last Sunday of 2017! Here we are at midnight. The Littlest crashed at 10:30 but Little E made it to the fireworks. Happy New Year all!
Christmas may be over but my tree hasn't quite wilted, the fridge is still rammed and we are still off work so let's keep the Christmas spirit going and complete the Christmas Tag! I was tagged by the lovely Rachel from Tots and Tantrums and Katie from Living Life Our Way.
Just before Christmas I was challenged by One4all the multi retailer giftcard to find my perfect outfit. I was super excited because I haven't shopped for myself for so long. With my Grandparents Diamond Anniversary lunch on the horizon I was looking for a new outfit to celebrate in style.
This time last week I shared my Christmas to-do list which had be de-railed by Little I’s chest infection and hospital stay. A week on I’m taking a look at how far I’ve come and what is still outstanding on my list.
It has been ages since I last went shopping for myself and my wardrobe is starting to look rather sad and limp, certainly not full of festive cheer. Enter One4all, the multistore gift card company, who have challenged me to buy myself a new Christmas outfit with a loaded One4all card! I can't contain my excitement and I'm wondering how I'm not already at the shops...
Two weeks today until Christmas Day! We are on countdown but do not fear you still have time to finish your shopping and there is no need to panic shop. No matter how late you leave it make sure you buy something personal rather than grabbing the first gift set you see in Boots. If you have a bit of spare time (chances are you haven't but you never know...) why not make something homemade to give as a gift. There is still time to order online too and if you have an Amazon Prime account chances are you can get it delivered tomorrow. Here's a roundup of my best last minute online Christmas gifts.
It's Christmas (nearly)! So I thought it would be fun to share my favourite Christmas tracks with you all. I have some great memories of singing along to these tunes in my car back in my commuting days. If you haven't caught my music series posts so far you can find them all here
Heroism, Laughter, Romance, Adventure - Disney has it all by the bucket load plus some rather catchy tunes. Put that all on an ice rink and what a show you have! We are very excited to announce we have been invited to Disney on Ice presents Passport to Adventure tour which is hitting the O2 this month. Hosted by Mickey and Minnie we will be taken on a tour of the globe meeting all our favourite Disney characters along the way - I'm bursting to tell the kids about our Christmas treat but we are keeping it a secret!!!
