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.

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. šŸ™ So, with the tablet being either broken, dead or in use, it just makes it all the more trickier to...

On the way home, we collected some big leaves that I had intended to use to make a Christmas hedgehog with Luke.

Day #2 of Toddler Christmas Crafts – Snowmen

Today was a fairly quiet day in our household. I had some stuff to sort out regarding friends and horrible grown up stuff and Luke was off to his dads for the weekend, so there was limited time for messy fun. With that in mind, we stuck some awesome tunes on the telly and got the crayons out! Luke still isn’t too great with the concept of colouring/drawing, so crayons can sometimes be hard work, especially if you’re after any form of ‘art’. He thoroughly enjoys taking all the crayons out of the tuper ware box they live in,...
