January 2019

January is such a long month. We spent much of it indoors as it’s been too wet and cold to go far. But on the plus side that’s meant lots of cosy cuddles with Josie who is just an absolute delight.

She’s such a happy, chilled out baby. She’s turned 4 months old now and has been laughing and giggling a lot – especially at her big sisters.

2018

2018 was another big year for us. Every year I set out a long list of resolutions most of which I never fulfil. But my biggest hope for 2018 was that we would be lucky enough to add a third child to our family. And sure enough, on the 9th January we found out I was pregnant. So the first part of the year was spent feeling delighted but very sick, the middle part hugely pregnant and the latter part of the year very much in love with baby Josie, who joined us in September.

5 gifts for Baby’s First Christmas

This year we will be spending Christmas as a family of 5, with our newest addition Josie. She will be 13 weeks old on Christmas Day; too young to know what’s going on but all the same we want to celebrate her first ever Christmas. We’ve bought a few things to mark the occassion, but most of all we are looking forward to having some chilled out family time over the Christmas break and lots of cosy Josie cuddles.

Our new addition to the family

So I’ve been very quiet on the blog and social media lately. And that’s because I’ve spent the majority of the last few months feeling exhausted and always within grabbing distance of the sick bucket. But if ever there is an occasion where 24/7 vomming is a good thing, this is it.

Yep, I’m growing a human. A new addition which will make us a family of five. It’s been a rough start to an otherwise very exciting time of our lives, but I’m over the worst of the sickness now (touch wood) and feeling so much better so this is my first blog post in around 3 months!

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.
