Do we all think the summer has been and gone? We had a mini heatwave and now lashing rain. July is supposed to be the start of the summer but it’s not looking promising is it?! June saw my babies turn four and we had a glorious BBQ with all their friends round for a BBQ. They all played on the new trampoline and in the paddling pool and didn’t leave til gone 7pm – it was fabulous. I always love June but it always makes me realise we are halfway through the year (and only half the year left…

Whoaaa, we’re halfway there, woah oh! June is upon us people and that means we are officially halfway through 2017. With the sun creeping out more and more, it’s quite exciting knowing that summer isn’t far off but for me it’s all a tad bittersweet with the girls off to school soon. June is always a very exciting month in our household as it is my girlies birthdays. They will be four next week and I am aghast at how quickly it’s gone and how big they are. They cannot wait and I am excited to see their faces when…

Hola! We are over a third of the way through 2017 and I almost forgot to do this post as I genuinely can’t get to grips with where the time goes. April is always a mixed month in my house as it marks the day where my Mom passed away, so it’s always a hard one and one I dread. I’m glad to see the back of it, however it’s actually been a good one family wise. Here’s how I got on: A night away. DONE. I took the kids up to Blackpool overnight and we had such a brilliant…

Drip drip drop little April showers! The fourth month of the year already – woah. It’s only when I do my monthly post I realise how fast time really does go by. With a hot month forecast, I’m hoping for lots of blue skies and getting outdoors. Here is a recap of my March bucket list goals and how I got on: Get the stairs sorted. DONE. We have had our under stairs coverted to tthree pull out drawers and a large double cupboard. I keep meaning to blog about it and show you the amazingness as this picture doesn’t…

Spring is coming people. Hard to believe with the drop in temperature and what seems every lasting rain, but last week we had some gorgeous days (despite Storm Doris) on our holiday to Butlin’s so lets just focus on the blue skies – it will come! March is a busy month birthday wise for us here not to mention Mother’s Day which always is so bittersweet. Can’t believe that when I write my next post we will be almost ready to break up for Easter – these kids are hardly ever at school at they! So how did I get…

January is FINALLY drawing to a close. It seems to drag on forever and seriously, why is January SO crap? I’m looking forward to lighter nights and the temperature warming up a bit as I’m so over wearing seven layers at a time. So February, the month of lurvvvve is upon us. Do you celebrate Valentine’s? We do but everything seems to think it’s so naff nowadays. I love a bit of cheese and old style romance so let me be! Aside from this, what else do I want to achieve in February:

Writing a post for goals for a whole year is a little bit scary but it’s also lovely to look back on the past year as I did for my 2016 Bucket List. I loved writing my bucket list 2017 and hope you will join in and enjoy writing yours. A fresh year ahead of you always seems so new and shiny so it’s nice to try to plan things for the forthcoming year. For us it will be the biggest change we’ve experienced, as my babies will start school in September (ALL THE SOBS!) so it really is going…
