Happy Birthday to me …

Happy Birthday to me …

This year, this month in fact I turn 36. Happy Birthday to me! I am over the 35 year hill and on my way up to 40 – as my husband constantly reminds me.

As I sit at times contemplating life in general I often think back to my youth and think of the dreams I had for my future. I had plans to graduate as an army officer, until a careers advisor told me I’d be better suited to secretarial work. Then I had plans to top the legal profession and become a barrister, which were dashed by poor choices and a desire to self destruct.

Hello 2016 ….

Hello 2016 ….

2015 went by so fast and I cannot believe we are already saying hello 2016! It felt like it went past in a blur and it’s hard to remember everything that went on.

There were a few changes to our lives, the biggest of them was moving church last Easter. I cannot believe we have been in our new church family for 9 months! It took a while but we feel very settled and content, and we love the warm welcome we have received from the family there.

Early mornings …

Early mornings …

Our boy has been an early riser since he was born. There is no such thing as a lie in with him in the house. Although the morning starts were beginning to get a little too early for us. 5am is not a time for anyone to have to see every day! I had heard a few mentions of the Gro Clock previously and Googled it. I watched reviews and the demo video on YouTube. Hesitant about how a glowing clock would help we decided to bite the bullet and get one for our boy in the hope we could say goodbye to the very early mornings.
