Our Bucket list for 2017

Spending time together as a family is so important and it’s something that we’re guilty of not doing enough. So, when I saw a bucket list idea over on What the Redhead Said blog, I knew we had to join in & make a family bucket list of our own.

Every year we have this habit of making plans together and 9 times out of 10 they fall through. Life gets in the way or money will be short. This year, however, that will not happen! Because I plan to do as much, if not all of these amazing, fun {some on a budget, other’s we’ll save for} things on our list throughout the year.

#LittleLoves; Back to school & preparing for a birthday

With the shift arrival of 2017, I bring my determined mind to get involved with lots of blog-related things. Things I joined in with last year but faded mid-way through the year. Bad me, I know! But that revelation aside here is my first #LittleLoves post of 2017! This week has seen my kids all go back to school {much to their dismay!} and the birthday preparations have begun for my littlest girl. 

Having the children all back to school comes with mixed emotions. On one level I’m sad because I’ve loved having my team at home {the lie-ins were also appealing} and on the other hand, I’m so very happy. I’m a creature that requires routine and having the kids back to school gives me just that.

My Blog & Life goal resolutions for 2017

I’m just going to dive right in and say that I’m not normally a new year resolutions sort of gal. Because, if we’re all completely honest here, how long do we actually keep them up for? Honestly! I know I’ve started health plans or life goals in the past and they’ve never seen March nevermind the end of the year! So this year, for starters, I’m going to be a realist. I’m going to set myself perfectly doable and easy-to-stick-to plans and I’ll cross everything that I can see them through.

I hope to be able to organise and stay on top of two things; My home & my blog. Both are a disorganised, dysfunctional mess and quite frankly, both have this knack of making me want to scream at the top of my lungs when times get a little tough. However, with the help of my new daily planner; sprinkled with a touch of optimism {& a dash of positivity}, I plan to make it…work!
