It’s hard to believe that two weeks have passed since I last posted a blog post. I was full of excitement for a break and obviously for Christmas, but it has flown by so fast.
December was such a hectic month for us. The Little Man turned five, we had his Birthday party to host and a multitude of other things that just seemed to eat into our time and before we knew it, Christmas had arrived.
We’ve had a really lovely time over the last couple of weeks. It’s the first time that the husband has had the whole of Christmas off work and because we are both so busy with the hustle and bustle of life, me with my blog, him with the gym, it’s hard to get the special time together. But this year we managed it. We had over a week off everything together and it was so special. I won’t lie, I didn’t want it to end.
There were times over the holiday that we thought we were going to go insane. The Little Man was testing to say the very least, at times. We think a lot of it had to do with all of the excitement of snow, Birthday and Christmas in the space of three weeks. Then, of course, having time off school as well as having us both at home for a long period of time. Kids like routine and ours was well and truly broken. But it was needed. We got chance to reconnect as a family and spend that all-important time together, even though we did feel like we were tearing our hair out on occasions!
We have decided that it’s so important to make sure that we take this time more often from now on. It’s so hard not to get caught up in the daily grind which is why it’s just as important to set the special time aside.
I have never been a big fan of New Year and this year we didn’t make any huge plans. Little Man went to bed at the usual time and the husband and I had a lovely evening together consisting of a few drinks and several games of Ultimate Monopoly (which is a fab version of the game I urge you all to try!).
I’m excited to see where the year takes us and what it holds in store. Where will we go? What will we do? Who will we meet? The opportunities are endless for us all and I’m looking forward to sharing them all with you.
How was your Christmas and how do you feel about the New Year? Let me know in the comments, I’d love to hear from you.
