What was your highlight of 2014?
My highlight for this year was Little Miss H’s first birthday. We celebrated it in numerous ways. Including a family day out to Howlett’s Wild Animal Park and a Baby Sensory party that she shared with her best friends. You can read all about our various birthday celebrations here.
It has also been wonderful seeing Little Miss H’s personality develop. Gone are the days of babyhood. She can now communicate and is great fun to be with. As a stay-at-home-mum I am in the privileged position of spending every day with Little Miss H. It is amazing to watch her grow up and change before my eyes.
What are you excited for in 2015?
We are hopefully going to be moving in 2015. I love our flat in Rochester but recently it has felt too small for the three of us. I am excited about having a house of our own with a little garden. I am looking forward to decorating it and making it a truly special family home.
Any New Years resolutions?
Only one but it is a big ‘un and can be broken down into many little resolutions. I need to take better care of myself. I haven’t done this at all in 2014 and I have suffered. I have had a lot of illnesses which has led to me taking antibiotics far too many times . I also miscarried in October and I am pretty sure that my fragile immune system wasn’t able to provide the baby with all the nutrients it needed.
2015 NEEDS to be a turning point. I am getting older and I am a mum. I can not be stupid about my health any longer. I know how to look after myself and what actions I need to take. I now need to take them.
I have been blogging for a few years but 2014 was the year that I began to take this blogging lark seriously. I have a few highlights:
- Attending Blogfest and meeting all the lovely bloggers that I now have the honour to call friends.
- I wrote a number of more serious posts this year. Sharing my opinions and some of the most difficult times in my life. I was nervous before publishing these posts. The response I received was amazing and I am grateful to everyone who takes the time to visit my blog.
- As you may have noticed, my blog has been redesigned and has moved sites. I am delighted that I took the plunge to do this. I love my new blog design. I get a little thrill when I see it. It is perfect.
Picture of the year?
I love this picture of the three of us. It was taken by my fabulous friend Gemma. We were out for Sunday lunch with a large group of friends. It was only a few days after the miscarriage and we were all recovering from a traumatic October.
This picture reminds me of the strength of my little family. It is the three of us against the world. It always makes me smile.
There we have it. I would love it if the following bloggers would like to join in:
