I am sat here, with a cup of coffee and a clear head. This is the first time I have looked at my blog since the 22nd of December last year (I can say that now, heehee), and I think the break has done me some good. I needed some me time, away from social media and my computer.
I have had time to reflect and think about what I would like to see on my blog this year. I am really looking forward to blogging about our family life and what we get upto over the next 12 months. Aside from the 1 holiday we have booked we have nothing else planned, I am really looking forward to a more go with the flow kind of year. I have seen a few quotes going round on facebook about it being a new year and a new 365 page blank book to write. That is exactly how I feel, I can not wait to fill my blog with lots of memories and adventures, with a few crafty things and recipes thrown in for good measure!
We have a National Trust pass, a Leeds Castle pass and a Chatham Dockyard pass and I intend to use them to the max. I want our Family Time to be quality time, our 1 full day a week together to be adventurous. Adventure doesn't have to cost money, we will be packing up a picnic and exploring our countryside as much as we can this year.
Last year seemed very rushed to me, for no particular reason, I think I was on a bit of a go slow, energy wise and I didn't seem to have as much time as I would have liked to just sit and play with the Children. Chester said before Christmas that he would really like to ride his bike some more, so this year I will make the time to take him out on his bike a lot more.
My energy levels are still at zero, I am useless at remembering to take my vitamin D, but I will have to train my brain to remember, as having no energy is simply not an option for me this year. My children need me to have my energy, I want to get that playtime back.
Millie turns 3 on Friday, can you believe it, 3! Where has my baby gone?! She is just a bundle of mischief at all times, she sees the fun in everything.
There is one big change I want to make this year, and that is the amount of time Craig and I get to spend together. We never seem to have time just the two of us, I always say we need to improve on that, and this time I really mean it. I don't care if its a movie night snuggled on the sofa, or an evening out, it needs to happen more and it will be happening more!
This year is going to be good, its going to be a positive one and I am really looking forward to seeing our year unfold!
LET THE FUN BEGIN!!
