Happy New Year little loves, I hope you had a wonderful Christmas. We had such a lovely one, really relaxed and lots of family time with our two boys.
Not a lot! I’ve been in contact with work about my return so I’ve been reading emails but not much more besides. Maternity leave will be over before I know it and that isn’t something I’m loving at all!
Moving swiftly on…
It’s become a New Years Eve tradition that we go to watch the pantomime at Manchester Opera House. This year was a little more special as two of our friends got engaged live on stage. We were all in on the surprise for the new bride to be and it was such a lovely moment.
Not resolutions (I never stick to them) but I have promised myself to make a few changes this year. The biggest one is to look for the positives, something that was seriously tested when I saw the timetable for when I return to work! The positive being that with no exam classes there will be less stress (see, I can do this).
I’ve treated myself to a few new things in the sales this year. After being pregnant last winter I desperately needed a few new things and I love a bargain.
You can take a closer look at what I bought here but one of my favourite buys was this superdry Cardigan. It is so cosy!
Mostly G, he is such a noisy little thing. He doesn’t do anything quietly! I keep running upstairs after hearing the alarm and thinking he’s woken up only to find him fast asleep and grunting like a little bear.
And as for when he’s eating, I get a thorough telling off when I’m not feeding him quickly enough.
We’ve had such a lovely Christmas break and whilst there has been some wonderful presents the best part has been spending time with my boys. Lots of lazy mornings, days pottering around not doing much, teaching O to ride his first bike. G seems to have developed so much over the past couple of weeks and I think a part of that has been having so many people around him.
Happy 2017, I hope it’s an amazing one for you. xx
