2013 Memories - 2014 Plans

I was tagged by Super Busy Mum - Deborah in a wonderful New Years meme to share my Best Memories of 2013 and my plans for 2014! 

I will start with my memories...

1. Ted...

I started 2013 off with a 2 week old baby. Those 2 weeks had been the craziest, magical most emotional 2 weeks of my life and the start of a roller coaster! My tiny snuggly bundle of joy grew into a clever, cheeky little boy in just 12 months. 

He learnt to roll, sit up, eat food, grew 8 teeth, crawled, talk, stand and walk! He amazes me every single day and I can't wait to see what he has in store for us this year.

2. Joe...

2013 was our 5th year together and it was full of exciting times for Joe and I. 

We went from being a couple to a family and have blossomed as parents. We endured sleepless nights, stinky nappies from hell and are still standing.

We learnt to talk about our problems rather than arguing and have become so much stronger for it. 

We went on our first weekend away without Ted and it was wonderful, we missed little man like crazy but it gave us a great chance to enjoy being a couple again. 

3. Family and Friends...

My best friends Claudy and Dave got married!

We welcomed into the world two beautiful girls, Lily-Mae and Isabella! 

I watched my family fall in love with my little man and it has brought us so much closer together.

4. Work, Hobbies and Fun Stuff!

I went back to work after maternity leave, working 3 days a week. It is really hard work and I wish I could stay at home with my boy but am proud of how well I am doing with it. 

I have continued to blog about my life. I am so grateful for the opportunities it has provided me with and all the lovely people I have met along the way. I am proud to call many of them my friends and look forward to finally meeting some more of them in 2014!

I attended the Sci Fi Weekender for the second time, explored The Harry Potter Studio Tour and visited some new places!

5. Birthday!
I celebrated my first birthday as a Mummy! It was wonderful receiving presents and a little card from my boy and what better present than a cuddle from my little man!

What a fantastic year it has been!

In 2014 I want to...

1. Worry Less
2. Smile More
3. Learn new things
4. Become organised
5. Get Healthy
I tag...

Chantelle - Mama Mummy Mum
