It’s been a while since I wrote on here about how I’m feeling. The past 18 months have been very up and down and unfortunately at times a lot more down than up. BUT finally I’m starting to feel as if there will be more ups.
I have a totally gorgeous family.
Who apart from a really horrible lingering virus over the past fortnight are healthy and happy.
Who make my days full of laughter and love. And the occasionally wanting to pull my hair period of frustration..but that’s normal right?
A baby who has a contented,calm personality and who manages to charm everyone she meets… She also bites my nipples (ouch) but I’ll forgive that.
A toddler who literally makes me laugh out loud at least several times a day. She also has found a new favourite word “boring” and I cannot tell you how much this annoys me.
A man who has been so incredibly supportive and is always full of bright ideas for our future. He can drive me crazy on occasion but for the most part he’s pretty brilliant. He also makes pretty epic ice cream.
I’ve still got 6 months left of maternity leave ( which includes a lot of budgeting and thrifty ways but we have managed it and I’m so thankful for this extra time at home with my girls). We have lots planned for this 6 months including at least three festivals, a trip to Cornwall next week to review a beautiful hotel. A blogging conference, The BBC Good Food shows and the possibility of starting some new work freelance at home doing something that I love… Which will hopefully mean I won’t have to work full time at my boring sensible job. Yay.
So a lot to be thankful for.
You can’t always dwell on the past. The future is so much more interesting.
This year will be what we make of it. And we have big plans.
