2017 Favourites


2017 seems to have been a bit of a whirlwind year, and just like that it's almost over. 2018 looks to be a very promising year and I hope that it brings lots of love and happiness.

With 2017 drawing to an end I thought I'd look back over the year at things that have made me happy and the things I have loved.

We booked and went on our first holiday as a family of 3. We were lucky enough to be able to book a trip to Paris, staying in a EuroCamp and spending 2 days in Disneyland. Alex loved every second and We can't wait to go back again with 2 children!

I finished CBT and was discharged. This was a huge deal for me. After over a years worth of CBT, and a lot of hard work, I was finally discharged and was able to control the anxiety and depression that took over me.

I'm Pregnant again! I feel incredibly lucky to have one amazing child let alone be able to fall pregnant so easily with a second. And even more so that baby #2 is a girl - meaning we will have one of each. I feel so blessed and thankful everyday.

My mum. Without my mum, so many things would have seemed impossible. Our house looked like a tip. There was hardly any space for storage or, well, us. My mum came in and gutted pretty much the entire place for use and made it liveable. Alex now has space to play, both in his bedroom and in the living room. We have a dining room which we can now all sit around the table to dinner. Thank you mum.

Alex's first Christmas performance. Alex had his first Christmas performance with his preschool! All the children gathered around and sang Christmas songs for all the parents, it was so magical and I couldn't have been more proud of him as he was so nervous!

Snow. It snowed. It actually snowed. This made me so happy! Snow makes everything look so pretty and fresh and it simply makes me so happy!

What has made you happy this year?
