I feel like writing, not really sure what I will write, but I guess the New Year is a good place to start!

Happy New Year all, I really hope you have made a good start to 2013!HNY Fireworks

Goodbye to 2012, you were kind to some, and extra specially unkind to others. Personally I have had highs and lows. I have watched Monkey start school and Mouse start playgroup, I have seen them blossom into real little people, learning, flourishing and reminding me daily how blessed i am! I have cherished cuddles and laughs and I have spent every single day knowing how much I love them and their Daddy!

I have made new friends, some of who I know will be forever friends, I have got closer to others and I have and still do miss those I have lost contact with, who have moved away or who simple we haven’t spoke as much as we should because life gets in the way!

I have watched people I love hurt, some in ways I couldn’t imagine was possible, I have wanted to help, but not always been able to!

At times we have struggled, finances have been tight, stress has been high, we have dealt with loss, uncertainty and more, but on the positive side we have done it together!

I have done a lot of thinking, I have been down and up, sometimes I don’t even know what I was – confused I guess!

So goodbye 2012, it is time for me to move on, it is time for me to look forward to this year!2013 fireworks

What 2013 will bring is unknown, some things will happen; Monkey will turn 5 and Mouse 3 (within 3 days of each other), they will remind me daily how awesome they are, they will grow and develop and I will be reminded that time flies! I am determined to treasure every moment! I will treasure that they want an extra cuddle at bedtime, I will treasure the tantrum because they want to try and do up their own buttons, only to need me to do them anyway, I will treasure the early morning because the first thing they want is a hug with mummy and daddy and I will always tell them how awesome they really all!

I have hope for 2013, I hope for a new job (I have a dream job in mind if anyone wants to give it to me!), I hope for the family business to pick up and take off, I hope for a house we can call home in an area we feel safe and settled, I hope for more contact with those we care about and more time with those we love, I hope our family time will be something to be treasured, I hope to help others where we can and I hope to look back on 2013 and think that was a good year, unkind to some (because I guess that is inevitable) but kind to most!

So for a final summary, some personal messages for those I love

To the family near and far, I hope 2013 will see more visits, more time together and more ‘I love you’s. I value all of you, you are my family and always will be, I love you and want you to know that!

To my husband, you are my soul mate, the father of my kids and I am so glad you are by my side as we venture into a new year, I hope that this year we find our place in the world, learn how to be the best us we can be and learn to cherish every moment of family life…together!

To the kiddie winks, I love you and always will. You are my shining lights and I am so proud to be your mummy!

To the friends who have had to follow their path that moved them away, I know the distance is a big one, but lets keep in touch like we promised too, with Facebook, Twitter, text and visits there is no reason not too! We know it will always be like we were never apart when we get together, lets just make the get together more regular, we miss you and love you lots!

To my ‘best friend from uni’, this will be the year we meet up, properly!! I still love you as much as I did, a friend for life – you have seen me at my worst, I want you to be a part of my life always!

To the other aliens – you know who you are,the claw has to come! You are rocks day to day and I will be grateful you are my friends, love you guys so much!

To my southern friend, 2012 has been so cruel to you and yours! I really wish I could have done more, I wish we lived closer, so we  could ‘do lunch’ and I can give you real hugs. We are so alike in many ways and so different in others (seriously Harry Potter!!), but you are like a sister to me, I miss you when we don’t speak for a few days and it is like we haven’t been apart when we are together! I never thought someone I met online would become someone I would want to be part of my life always! I really hope that 2013 is a good one for you, I will be here for you always and I love you!

And last but not least

To my friends, you know who you are, the ones who say ‘we should meet for a drink’, ‘we should get together the families’, ‘we should do…..’. Do you know what? We should!



So Happy New Year, lets see what happens !

My little man!

Sometimes when my three year old does or says something, it can totally melts my heart and often shows me what a goregouse little grown up guy he is becoming, here are a few examples;

1. We popped to the supermarket the other day and he whispered to Daddy ‘should we buy Mummy flowers’

2. At a party I asked ‘are you tired?’, he answered ‘well I am tired out as I have been dancing lots!’

3. Today I said ‘Daddy and I are very lucky to have you and mouse’; he replied ‘me and mouse are very lucky to have you and Daddy!’

4. His imagination is immense, everyday he is someone or something different, dog, daddy, superhero, doctor, explorer, allsort

5. And finally Each and every time he says ‘love you mummy’, awwww!

I was tagged by Wonna Blogger to do this post as part of the link up at Mother on Mother Earth

So here goes!

Ten things I love about you (two)!

1.That you are gorgeous!

You both have such beautiful blue eyes and massively gorgeous smiles! My heart melts, every time I look at you!

2. Your love of books!

A new book makes you smile and you both love them on any occassion, perfect mummy/daddy time, when you are chilling, when you are sick, when you are tired! You both just love books!

3. They way you remember things.

Legs, I love how smart you are and that you can recite a story to us after just a couple of times of reading, the way you remember places when you have only visited once and the way you remember things you learn at nursery! Mouse, you are awesome too, you remember signs and use them, remember what you like and don’t on sight and where we hide the dummies!

4. I love your determination

You are both so determined, Mouse you are fantastic you will find a way to climb, get in a nook, get a cuddle, anything you want to do, you push forward. Legs you are an awesome little boy with a need to learn, you are determined to learn new things daily! You are also very good at bargaining if there is something you want (‘how about if……’ said with cheeky grin!)

5. You love fruit!

You really do, you would (and do) eat loads of it, berries, apples, bananas! What mum doesn’t want they kids to eat fruit!

6. You say the funniest things!

Mouse, you say it with a look or a smile. You are cheeky and have a mischievous look, that you use at all sorts of opportunities! Legs you are so clever and come out with some wonderful things and can do a wide range of voices and noises!

7. You both can say I love you and mean it!

Using words or sign, you both tell me and daddy that you love us, I am so glad to be your mummy.

8. You love fun!

and I love playing, singing, dancing etc with you too! You are so fun loving and make me remember what is important!

9. That you love each other!

You hug each other, look after each other when one of you is ill and play together.  Yes you act like brothers and sisters sometimes and bicker, but you can always tell that you love each other.

10. That you both are you.

You are amazing, and me and daddy are glad to have you both. We love you for who you are and who you will become. I love that you are so alike, but both are unique too. You are fab children and I am sure you will become remarkable adults (just dont grow up too fast!)

Hubby and I are celebrating our fourth anniversary today, so I thought I would share with you the poem that was read by my mum at the church.


The Story

In the beginning when you two met

The road in front was already set

Next did come the friendship game

You found your humour was the same

Love at this point began to show

Feelings that before you did not know

The feelings turned into something more

You both were happier than ever before

You grew together solid and strong

Supporting each other through right and wrong

Away from home across the sea

He got down on bended knee

You made a promise to each other

That you would always be together

Now you are here to make that vow

Your wedded bliss starts here and now

Once the service is over and done

You’ll go forward together, united as one

Now as one you’ll embark on life

Relax and celebrate as man and wife!

POEM – For valentines

A Valentines day for those with a little one!

Breakfast in Bed – for three though not two
A quick cuddle – a group one will do
Getting ready – takes an hour or two
Walk in the park – covered in mud goo

Time for food – a giant big queue
Private dinner – not at all true
Waiting for food – causing some ado
Done but messy – How, nobody knew

Now to go home – to hope they sleep through
At last alone – its the time to woo
A glass of wine – rather a hot brew
Make way to bed – sleep takes over you
