Enjoying the quiet moments

As I sit here and type this, I am surrounded by complete and utter silence. We have spent Christmas at my parents in Dorset, it's been great but as expected with two young children it's also been very full on!

So today, I have taken the very rare opportunity to sit in silence and reflect on the last few days, whilst Craig and my Dad take the children down to the Quay. No doubt they will be in the arcades as its Chester and Millie's favourite place to go! 

Silence is very rare for me, if I am not working I am looking after the children. But today has made me realise that I really do need to try and make some time for myself. Just an hour a week would be great. 

As a family, our lives are unbelievably hectic and one great big juggling act. So I think it would be lovely to stop and appreciate the little things from time to time! 

Christmas this year has been fantastic,both children really appreciated everything they were given. We have all spent the last 3 days playing air hockey, dolls prams, and loads and loads of board games! 





Not to mention a trip to the Panto...


Decorating a gingerbread house...


And a trip to the beach ...


Craig and I have both managed to have Christmas off of work this year so it has been really lovely to spend the time not rushing (although still busy) and simply appreciating the children and the games they have asked us to play. 

I hope you have all had a great Christmas too?!
