So I took a little break from blogging over the festive period, for no other reason that I just didn’t find the time to keep it updated as I enjoyed our time together as a family. However I feel the need to do a catch up before normal blogging can resume so here goes!!
Christmas was amazing. The right mix of friends leading up to the big day and family throughout. It’s at times like this that brings it home just how blessed we are to have such amazing people in our lives. Both the people we got to see and others who were unfortunately too far away.
The Bear seemed to enjoy it and she genuinely seemed to love every gift as each one was played with as it was unwrapped. Needless to say it took 3 days to unwrap it all!!!
Our best laid plans for a new year with friends unfortunately did not work out as it seems that everyone was ill! Therefore the Bear went down as usual and the hubster and I watched crap on TV (think TFI and hootenanny) while having a few drinks in our PJ’s and playing scrabble…..rock n roll or what?? It was lovely though.
There were many other events too – some shopping, trips to the zoo, plenty of games, laughs and cuddles in the house as well as a stinking cold and conjunctivitis. Now you can’t say we don’t know how to live!
All too soon though it’s back to reality as work lures it’s head and it’s at this stage where I’ve really recognised that times have changed and I’ve become a parent; as I’m actually looking forward to the Bear getting back into her routine. Go figure!!
