Happy 2018!

Well we are a couple of weeks in to 2018, and how many New Year’s Resolutions have you broken already? I’ve set several ‘resolutions’ for the year, including getting more sleep and moving more (the FitBit I got for Christmas will help with monitoring those goals), as well as a list of things that I’m planning on doing this year, or would like to do. Such as going to see Wicked at the theatre (for the 3rd time), building a Lego Marvel Helicarrier (already started), doing the Highway Rat trail with the kids at Whinlatter (we did this last weekend) and writing a book. So a mix of things that I can quite easily achieve and some slightly more ambitious projects! To be fair writing a book is on my list every year, so I’m not holding out much hope.

Happy New Year – What does 2017 have in store?

Happy New Year everyone!

After a short blogging break over the festive period, I’m back with a bit of a round up of 2016 and a look ahead at what this year will bring. We had a lovely Christmas, the girls were both very lucky and got lots of nice things. They enjoyed putting out a mince pie for Father Christmas and leaving out their stockings – and Clara’s little face when she saw Baby Annabell and a new pram on Christmas morning!

Our Weekly Roundup #13

What a bizarre week it has been – snowing one day then so warm we didn’t even have to wear coats the next. Very random! This week we have been:

  • Climbing. Or at least trying to. We took Izzy to Clip n’ Climb which is a indoor climbing centre and even though she only got a few feet off the ground she was so proud of herself. She was really nervous at first but the people who work there were really patient with her and very encouraging, and she kept trying. She can’t wait to go back and try again, to see if she can get a little bit higher next time.

The downside to blogging

home-office-336377_640

A few weeks ago I had my first negative experience as a blogger. I wrote an article for another website about the positive side of sending your child to nursery. A couple of anonymous comments were left on the website by posters strongly opposed to sending children to nursery.
