Hello 2015; Let's Have Fun

I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas and New Year. Ours was pretty stressful with a very poorly baby but it was enjoyable none-the-less.

I am not one for New Year resolutions. I've not made any since I was young and I've not stuck to any since I was even younger. However I thought it would be useful to make a few points to help myself stay focused this year, and make the most of the year before it runs away from me like 2014 did. I feel like I achieved a lot in 2014 (I had a baby for goodness sake, biggest life goal: TICK!!!) and I want to get to the end of 2015 and feel like the same sense of achievement, but with a baby time tends to run away from you at a great rate of knots so here is a few things to keep me on track.

1. Continue Blogging: I started my blog in June 2014 and its something I've really enjoyed and also something I've put a lot of effort into and I would hate for it to fall by the way side. Although I'm going back to work in a few weeks I am going to try make the time to continue putting as much effort into my blog.

2. Feel healthier: Now this will take a lot more than a little effort. I have been unhappy with my weight since before I was pregnant and since Logan was born I have done little to nothing about it. I'm not putting on weight but I sure as heck am not losing any. My goal for 2015 is to get back into a shape I am proud of not a shape I continually want to cover up.

3. Get out more: I think all mother's can agree that Maternity pay is pitiful. Pre-Logan I was earning a regular, decent, full time wage, and although before I fell pregnant, we had planned and calculated the drop in money till we were blue in the face nothing really prepares you for the hardship of livingwith less than half the wage I was used to.. I think I used the lack of funds as an excuse not to do as much with my free time as I could have. In the early days Logan could be quite a difficult baby and again, I used that as an excuse to stay in the comfort of my own home. However I've come to realise it can get awfully boring! I hope to make 2015 full of more adventures.

Do you have any new years resolutions? Have you ever stuck to any?


  1. Hope that Logan is better now and that you manage to achieve your goals for this year :-)

  2. I've just found your blog and I think it's really inspiring, it will be an honor for me if you can visit mine too, and if you want to follow, it will be a pleasure to follow you back! :) <3
