The end of one year and the beginning of the next is always a good time for
I’ve been taking a bit of a look back on 2014 over the last few days as well as thinking ahead a little into 2015. The start of the new year often sees me with a sense of renewed determination to do things but as with many people, it fizzles out long before January is over. I have managed to tick one item off my list of aims for the new year though and that was taking up the curtains in our bedroom so that they no longer cover the radiator. It’s a job I’ve been putting off for about four years and so feels good to finally get it done! Hubby and I have also sat down together and written a very long list of all the things that we’d like to get done around the house and in the garden. There are far too many things on that list to realistically achieve this year but having them all written down means that we can start prioritising them and hopefully get some of them underway sooner rather than later.
Out and About:
We travelled down to visit my family for a few days from Boxing Day and the girls enjoyed seeing Nanny and some of their aunties, uncles and cousins plus had some more Christmas presents to open. For hubby and I, it was lovely to be able to stop and just relax for a few days.
We headed into London on 30th December to find some of the Paddington Bear sculptures as it was the last day for being able to see them. We managed to find 13 in total, including this one in Paddington station:
Fun at home:
Most of our time at home this week has involved sitting on the floor and playing with the new toys or doing jigsaw puzzles – it’s been lovely to have that focused time with the girls. We stayed in for New Year’s Eve and watched TV whilst eating cheese and biscuits and enjoying a glass of champagne. Sophie woke up just before midnight and so got to see in the New Year with us and then Jessica woke up shortly afterwards so we were up a little later than we’d anticipated!
Time for me:
I’ve had a little bit of time sorting out some of the photos from the end of last year, editing some of them and deleting the ones I didn’t want.
My happiest moment:
Watching Jessica grab Sophie’s hands and singing ‘Row, Row Your Boat’ to her whilst doing the actions and then seeing both girls laughing at the end. Such a beautiful moment.
Next week I would like to:
