The Ordinary Moments #2 Chalk and Cheese

Now this is exactly why I don't make New Years resolutions, I break them immediately then I am left feeling crappy about myself.

Okay so I've kept up with the looking after myself thing, eating healthier and making plans I love but I'm already lagging behind on The Ordinary Moments. But I suppose, better late than never. 

The past week has really been all about settling back into routine, which I secretly hate! although I do think its necessary for happy and content little lads. Tiger really thrives on knowing where he's going and what he's doing, he always has. When he was a newborn baby I always thought I would be a happy go lucky mama, let my newborn lead the way, take things easy but Tiger had none of it! He cried loudly and constantly for the first three months.  I really struggled and went from wanting to be a hippy mama to ending up following the strict routines of Gina Ford

I love a bargain and I absolutely love sale shopping, I know its not for everyone but for me, I get super excited when I find a good quality piece at a fraction of the price. I always prefer to spend a little more and buy good quality shoes when it comes to the Little Lads footwear, especially during the winter months and find the best deals in the January sales. I tend to wait until towards the middle of January OR if I can hold my nerve late January, this is when all the final reductions are made for the real bargains!

The Ordinary Moments #1 'New Beginnings'

Let me start with saying Happy New Year you lovely lot! I hope you've all had an amazing Christmas break, ours has been wonderful, we crammed in a lot and I've truly loved spending time with my family and friends. I've started 2016 feeling extremely grateful for the people I have in my life.

I haven't really made New Year Resolutions for 2016 as I can't think of a single year where I have actually stuck to them so instead I've made a promise to myself that this year I will make sure I really look after myself as well as my family, healthy eating, exercise and do things which make me happy, for me! It's quite simple stuff but in the past I've struggled with the balance of being a mama and being me, so brand spanking new year- lets really give this a go!

For this little blog of mine, I'm finally happy with the direction it's going in, a good mix of the little lads, lass and my style. Sharing our family days out and fab brand collaborations, there will be more of that this year. I also want a stronger focus on family travel, in keeping with the promise I've made to myself 'doing what I love' and I love to travel and explore the new.

The year for us it will be extra special, after being engaged for like forever (6 years to be exact!) 2016 will see myself and The Mister finally getting hitched!! I wont go on about it too much now but expect to see plenty of our plans leading up to the big day. 

At the end of last year I kept meaning to and really wanted to document and write about those precious Ordinary Moments which make up our little family. So I will be joining in with the lovely Katie from Mummy Daddy and Me each week with 'The Ordinary Moment' just a weekly update on what we've been up to.

Here's a 'Mini Moment' to get me started...

After all the excitement of Christmas, on the last day before Tiger returned to school I asked both Tiger and Beaux what they would like to do, walk to the river? visit friends? spend some of their Christmas money at the toy shop? (I thought the last suggestion would have them shoving me out of the way, grabbing their coats and shoes and heading for the front door) But much to my amazement they said they wanted to snuggle up on sofa and watch a film with their mama. So that's exactly what we did, they were so loving to one another which is such a rare occurrence, usually they can be found farting on each other and fighting over the same toy neither one of them has picked up in years! So this moment right here is a precious one that I want to remember forever.
