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.



  1. Awww, their feet are almost identical!

  2. Aww so cute that they wanted to lie and watch a film with you. Funnily enough my big girl was just desperate for some pj days this christmas, and not do much. She normally ends up getting cabin fever and so hyper though that I normally regret not going out! It is lovely to have you joining me lovely, can't wait to read more of your ordinary moments through out the year. x
