After school this week she was eager to head out and about around our estate. An opportunity to search for the three little pigs houses. It was also a great opportunity to test out her new bright and colourful Frugi Puddle Busters. Slipping on her puddle buster trousers and coat along with her wellies ready to head out searching for the houses.
It’s been quite a rollercoaster of emotions this month. From some of the best moments to some of the very worst. Despite all that has been happening, the children managed to enjoy the festive build-up as well as the big day itself. With Santa bring them the item that they asked for from their Christmas list.
As the New Year is about to ring out loud and resolutions are made, I’m looking to make changes in my life. But not ones that fall under the resolution category of losing weight and getting fit – although I could benefit from both of those. This New Year I am looking to make time for me and to ensure that I am accountable for this I am once again jotting down my plans and goals for the month ahead.
With so much happening in real life and a somewhat different festive season to the one we would normally have. What The Dad Said insisted that we make it out and about on my birthday – despite me wishing to hide from the world. However, it’s always important to celebrate for the sake of the children if nothing else. With this in mind and our new Merlin Annual Passes in hand, we opted for a family day down on London’s Southbank.
Oh, December! What a month you have been, from some wonderful highs to almost the lowest points that you could possibly face. Whilst I’d never truly want to wish my time away, I think I can safely say that I’m pleased to be heading towards the end of the month. Thanking December for the wake-up call it has given but happily waving goodbye to some of the long hours and days that I’ve experienced.
Coming from a family of birthdays all in the same month you would have thought that when I cam to have my own children that I would attempt to spread them across the year. However, that would be the sensible thought out plan but instead, we have all three birthdays in one month. Swiftly followed by the December festivities. Which this year seems to have dripped into the end of November.
As a new month starts tomorrow, I want to make myself accountable for the plans that I have and the goals I am looking to achieve. What better way to make sure that I am completing these than by making the public.
As the end of the year closes in I’m starting to feel quite melancholy. There isn’t one particular thing that is making me feel this way. Rather a host of small things, probably insignificant to most people. All of which are chipping away at me. I’ve attempted to distract myself from the majority of things, however, there are some things that no matter what I do still manage to whizz around my mind.
