on being grateful

hello my blog, hello my friends that read my little blog!! oh how i’ve missed this little space that is just mine.

it may be the 4th, well it’s now actually nearly the 5th,  but better late than never hey?- so the happiest of new years to you all- i hope you’ve had an awesome time doing all the things you love with all the people you love.

last night was the first time in ages that I was home alone and  it felt like total luxury after a busy few weeks of holidaying, epic car journeys, entertaining visitors and general christmas busyness so it seemed like a perfect chance to catch up with you before either Big D returned from the movies or his folks returned from their evening out; instead I went to bed ridiculously early and snuggled the little man- not exactly riveting stuff to the start of 2016, but hey ho it’s all about lifes simple pleasures!  Continue reading

Ramblings of a frazzled mama

December, you hurled everything you had at me and by some incredible miracle I'm still standing, all be a little bit wobbly but still standing none the less!

In a nutshell we moved into our place 9 days before christmas, (i wouldn't recommend it, totally screwed my christmas tradition schedule!) unpacked just in time to be reunited with my little sister after far too long on separate continents, and then we had christmas to handle and not just any Christmas it was Ralph's first christmas and it was going to be ace! (Even if we hadn't done any Christmas shopping and I was dashing around the supermarket on Christmas Eve; which was nowhere near as bad as it is back in the UK by the way!)
