Banish Those January Blues With Some Feel Good Films Plus A Twitter Giveaway

January is such a miserable month, isn't it? everyone is broke after Christmas, the weather is rubbish and we end up feeling a bit deflated stuck at home during the cold, dark evenings. Now it is half way through January I am feeling a bit bored, I am trying to be good and save some pennies and the weather is rubbish so we have been spending a lot more time at home lately. My other half is a huge movie fan so I have vowed this year to spend more time watching DVD's with him at home. Let's face it snuggling up all cosy on the sofa with a good film is perfect for this time of year, especially a good comedy to chase away those winter blues.

December 2016

As always I am super duper late in writing my monthly round-up post, it feels like forever since I wrote Novembers post. My blog has been a bit like tumbleweed at the moment, I have so much to write about but I just have not had the chance to sit down and type, mainly due to illness and my cat putting me in hospital! Yes you read that right my cat put me in hospital, he bit me on the arm and I ended up going to the minor injury clinic as it would not stop bleeding hours later and they referred me for plastic surgery to get the wounds cleaned out and fixed and four days worth of check-ups. Typically it was my right arm and it is still a bit sore now two weeks later so blogging has had to take a bit of a back seat. Anyway, let's take a look at what December 2016 was like for us.

Surprising Thing's That Happen After You Have A Baby

When I started this blog, over two years ago now it started off as a pregnancy blog. I started it simply to record my third pregnancy, so I could remember and look back on my pregnancy someday, but also because I know when your pregnant you love reading about other people's pregnancies too. I would devour every pregnancy book and magazine I could find in my first and second pregnancy and loved watching TV shows such as One Born Every Minutes. I felt like I knew all about pregnancy, what to expect at each stage, tips for staying comfortable and what to buy etc. No one really tells you what to expect after you have the baby though, celebrities seem to ping back in shape in a matter of days and looking online and in magazines, you get the impression everything goes back to normal straight away.

Christmas 2016

Christmas seems to have gone by in a flash this year and we had such a lovely time as a family, it was our first Christmas in our new home and the first time we have actually had a proper family Christmas at home - we normally eat out on Christmas day. Now we have a bigger house and the little two truly believe in the magic of Christmas we decided to stay home this year, just us five and it was so so lovely. The other half had 10 whole days off work so I decided to take a couple of weeks off from this blog too, spending quality time together was just what we all needed. One thing I do regret though is that I took hardly any photographs, I really need to get into the habit of taking more.
