Reflecting Upon My Bucket List For 2017

Back in December last year I wrote a bucket list for 2017, at the time I wished to complete at least six of the action points listed whereas upon reflection I have found that I somehow managed to achieve almost ten out of the fifteen points listed which is pretty damn good going!

Here’s last years list should you fancy having a read. I have colour coded all the things which I managed to make happen as purple and the stuff which I am yet to do as red.

#MySundayPhoto – Gaining Perspective

Life is a funny old thing ain’t it? We are all equal yet view things entirely differently. Whilst some people would suggest a glass to be half full others may claim it to be half empty… It depends on your outlook as to how you view the World.

Over the years I’ve learnt to see things a little differently, I no longer look straight before me as I realise now that I failed to notice the smaller things; the details in the distance, the shiny stuff in the background and the surprises in my periphery.

#LittleLoves – Christmas, Carols, Christingle & Coffee Tables

The past week has been an absolute blast! We have had an amazing Christmas with family and friends, the kids were spoilt rotten with gifts galore and we’ve spent quality time together stuffing our faces with festive food, enjoying the seasonal shows and kicking back for Christmas.

Both Paul and the kids struggled earlier in the week with coughs and colds but otherwise we’ve managed to steer clear of the sickness bugs and such-like which were apparently doing the rounds. Thankfully we made it through Christmas before disaster struck as I came down with a nasty chest infection before taking a tumble down the stairs where I injured my elbow rendering me strapped up and sofa bound.…

2017 – The Best Bits

2017 has been one heck of a year, the past twelve months has been action packed for both the children and us adults. 2017 has certainly flown by that’s for sure as time seems to when you’re busy having fun.

Having kept a record of my #LittleLoves each week alongside the things which I have #LikedandLoved each month has made looking back over the year a little easier. Here are a few of our highlights from 2017…

We completed building J’s new ‘high-sleeper’ which was then placed into his new bedroom which we then painted and carpeted in a brilliant shade of blue.… View Post
