The Bests of 2017

Another year done! I swear I remember sitting down and writing this post last year. It’s New Years Eve and I thought it was time to reflect on the past year and remember all the best parts; not blogging wise, just generally!

Here we go!

Maternity Leave

I had an awesome time off with my girls. I’m not going to lie and say it was all sweetness and light, of course there are the tough times but overall it was great. I was so much more relaxed with my second born and we had loads of snuggle time. It was also brilliant to spend the last few months off with my gremlin before she started school. I will treasure that time.

A Fab Family Holiday in Cyprus

We did it! We managed it with two kids and my parents. We all headed out to Cyprus last May. I was a bit nervous taking the two of them but it worked out really well. I actually remember reading a whole book, whilst the gremlin swam with her Daddy and Piglet slept! Drinkies, sunshine, swimming and time with the family. It was a great holiday.

Taking The Blog To New Heights!

It’s been a good year blog-wise, well the last few months certainly. I did hope to try and do a little more with it on maternity leave and August onwards the work did boom for me, which has been amazing. I have worked with some bigger brands, starting getting paid for reviews and generally had more opportunities than ever! I have been able to save and treat myself to a new camera. I’m hoping to vlog a little more in the new year. This year I have also made a group of lovely new friends (when I can keep up on Whatsapp, which has been so hard leading up to Christmas!) and this always helps to make blogging so much more worthwhile.

The Gremlin Started School

I can’t believe my eldest is in school. I was worried and felt quite sad but she has done so well. We made the right decision sending her and although some of the stuff we have to remember has driven me insane, she’s happy and settled and that’s all that matters.

Surviving Having Two Children!!

Hubby has just reminded me how well we have done managing having two children. You don’t think about it on a day to day basis but we have added an extra body to our household – we have gone from one to two children. It’s a big challenge, it has been harder but we have survived. We get out and about. We all usually get on. Woop! Go us!

An Awesome Christmas

I was much more relaxed this year, compared to last, took time from the blog and had some lovely family time. The girls were good and loved their presents.

It’s been a lovely one 2017 and let’s see what 2018 will bring!!
