Hey everyone, as you may have noticed I haven't been on here for a while.
There are lots of reasons why.
We moved house right before Christmas, which was a huge stress! I can honestly say that I would NEVER recommend anyone to buy/sell their house right on top of Christmas! But it's done now and we are very happy in our new home, even if it needs a lot more work than we first thought!
Since last summer I found out that I had Skin Cancer on my face. So that has been a huge concern. A few weeks ago it was finally removed and confirmed 100% to be Cancer. I don't quite know how I feel about that at the moment. On the one hand I am glad it's out but on the other hand I am very concerned I might get more. Skin cancer and cancer in general sadly is something that is in my Family. But never did I imagine at the age of 32 I would be told I had it!
My Sister got Married in Walt Disney World at the beginning of March, so we went over for that and had an amazing Holiday. Sadly we didn't get time to do everything we wanted to, so we will of course have to go back!
I will also admit that during all of this I kind of lost my blogging mojo. I had so much going on in my home life that I think one more thing to think about would have sent me over the edge, something had to give and sadly it was my blog.
The last 12 months have been one long horrific stressful nightmare for me and I am really hoping that we never have to go through any of it (apart from Holidays to Disney of course) ever again.
I have learnt a lot.
I have learnt to say no more often and not feel guilty about it. If people are going to throw a tantrum over me saying no, I don't need that kind of negativity in my life.
I have learnt that I need more time for myself, my children are the centre of my world, but sometimes I need to put myself first. That also goes for my relationship with my husband. We recently celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary, where we had the most amazing meal out and didn't stop talking and laughing the whole evening. I want more evenings like that.
I have learnt that I need to slow down a little bit, I am very aware that we are a busy family. But sometimes what is needed is a duvet day to appreciate the little things. Time is precious and at the moment I feel it is going way to quickly.
And lastly, but most importantly, I have learnt that my little family bubble of 4 are the most important people in my life. I am not saying other people are not important, but the 3 adorable people I live with are my number 1 priority in life. They are the ones that make me smile (sometimes cry) and they have been the ones to pick me up and carry me through this awful year! I love them with all my heart.
So! Onwards and upwards! 2017 is going to be amazing!
