Pointless Post – books and baby bits.

Hello! Just a quick, chatty, rather poontless post today. In honour of my New Years Resolution, not only did I join the Good Reads 2015 book challenge today, I also bought four new books to get started on after I finish ‘Girl Online’. I’m really excited to read them because I haven’t actually seen the film adaption of Divergent, or whatever it’s called . After reading The Hunger Games trilogy, I’ve rekindled my love of the dystopia genre and I can’t wait to get lost in another book set. While out and about, we also picked up Luke a...

Looking forward into 2015, not back on 2014.

Hello! It appears to be the last day of December, as well as the last day of the year! I suppose it’s tradition to jabber on about the highs and lows of the year – discuss what you’ve achieved, regrets, lessons learnt etc – but I’m not going to do that. And Luke can’t do that, although he has achieved an awful lot and I’m incredibly proud of him. I am also proud of myself, but more for surviving than achieving anything of significance. I shall be seeing in the new year with Netflix. Maybe some films, but more likely I’ll be watching Merlin (because its on Netflix, how exciting is that?!) Maybe a cup of tea, too…how crazy and wild of me? I may not intend to talk about the past year, but I do have a few goals and life changes I’d like to start in 2015. Nothing major, not the whole ‘lose weight, go to gym, eat healthy all the time’, but a small list of select things that will enhance both my life and Luke’s. So firstly – my main goal is to read more. As some of you might know, I decided to put this into practice early December and it started with the Hunger Games trilogy. I finished Mockingjay last night and I’m currently suffering a bit of a book hangover. Actually, if...

Merry Christmas Eve!

Oh gosh! I am so sorry for the complete lack of blog posts of late – I have been having a super hectic time which, I suppose tends to go hand in hand with Christmas, but I feel awful for not keeping up to date.Also, I write my blogs on my boyfriends tablet/laptop thing and then have to use my phone to upload the pictures via the blogger app because I don’t have a laptop of my own. 🙁 So, with the tablet being either broken, dead or in use, it just makes it all the more trickier to...

Process Art: Christmas Present Hand Prints

After breakfast we went off on a walk to the park, accompanied by my lovely friend, where we played for a good long while. On the way home, we collected some big leaves that I had intended to use to make a Christmas hedgehog with Luke. However, as soon as we got home, all the paints came out and we ended up creating these sweet process art Christmas present hand prints instead. pic **This post contains affiliate links** Process Art: Christmas Present Hand Prints – perfect for babies and toddlers.
