It’s finally stopped snowing!

Yesterday it was snowing when we left my Nan’s house just after 5ish. It finally stopped at like 6:30. Everywhere was covered in snow still. I was pleased it had stopped. As much as it’s pretty to look at, it’s not practical!

Scarlett went to bed at 8ish. We had some dinner. We had sausage and mash. We were meant to have schnitzels but mom forgot to check we had breadcrumbs so she had to put them in the fridge and do sausages instead.

I was wide awake all night watching some TV. I couldn’t sleep. I think it was the coke I drank. I fell asleep about 6am and woke up at 9ish.

Today Scarlett woke about 9ish. She was singing so I left her till 9:30 then I took her downstairs. We had some breakfast then mom watched her whilst I showered. We got dressed then we went to my Nan’s house. She was cooking pies for everyone to take home. At 2ish I did Scarlett and everyone else some lunch then I put her down for a nap at 3:15. She slept till 5:30 then we walked home. She walked pretty much the whole way except for 2 minutes between one end of the park and the other, near the bridge. Which is fine. She did so well!!!

She had her schnitzel before we did as I wanted her in bed. She ate, had a bath then went to bed at 8. We ate then mom got ready for work. She left and so did her boyfriend. He headed home. I watched the latest episode of Requiem. Not entirely sure what’s even happening on it now. It’s confusing and weird!

I headed up to bed at 10 (half hour ago). Was going to watch a film but I’ve had a headache ALL DAMN DAY. So I’ll read instead and get an early night. I’m quite tired. We’ve had rain today, not snow. So a lot of the snow is gone and it’s much more drivable. At this rate I’ll 100% be back in the office Monday.


P.s. 20 days till MOVING DAY!!!


50 shades of pure cheese!

Friday Brett got here relatively earlier than usual. My Nan picked him up from the train station at like 9:15 so he was at mine for 9:30. We watched some TV and then climbed into bed.

Saturday Scarlett woke up quite early. About 7ish. I got her up and out the cot at 8. I did her some breakfast. She had some fruit and a yoghurt. We watched some TV, did some colouring and she played with my hair. At 9:30 we came upstairs to get Brett up. Mom did us some breakfast. She cooked. We headed down town to the bank as I needed to transfer some money. Then we headed to my nan’s. We stopped for a few cups of tea. At 3pm we headed Home to pack a few bits for our night “away” then we set off for town. We checked in at the hotel, dumped our stuff then headed back to town. Brett needed some new clothes so we hit up Sports Direct then we went back to the hotel. We put the TV and chilled for a bit. We decided we’d eat at 7ish as movie was 8:40. We ended up eating at 7:30/8ish. We went to the Tilly in town (Wetherspoons). Cheap meal and good food. I was stuffed.

We watched 50 shades freed. It wasn’t bad but it wasn’t as intense as the book. And I feel their stuffed the good bits (kidnapping) into a small 5 minute segment. It could’ve been much more exciting than that. Also it just felt so damn cheesy. Eurgh!

After the movie finished we walked back to the hotel. We put the Winter Olympics on. We stayed up chatting about EVERYTHING. It was really nice and good fun. But we didn’t realise how late it was and when we finally laid our heads down to sleep it was half 3 in the morning. Not ideal.

Sunday I woke up at 8ish with my alarm but I reset it for 9 and went back to sleep. I got up at 9 and jumped in the shower. I needed to get the make up off my face and wash my hair. When I was done I woke Brett up. We checked out just after 10 and walked back to the Tilly for breakfast. Brett didn’t eat. He never does lol I did though, I was hungry.

We jumped on the bus and headed to my Nan’s. Scarlett was happy to see us, for all of 5 minutes. We stayed there for dinner then we headed home at like 4ish. Brett packed his stuff and he left to go home at 5:30. I sorted Scarlett some supper then we did our Weekend Box. 1 of the things was a creative thing. We created dinosaur claws. The other was a cooking/baking thing. We made chocolate rice crispy cakes.

After we made the cakes we watched half of Dancing on Ice. She proper loves it. We did bath time then we watched the rest. She went to bed but she sang for ages. She’s so funny!

Today I woke up to a little horror scene. Since having the coil fitted I’ve been in a weird pattern of having my period one month but skipping the next totally. My periods had gotten lighter. It was great. But today was nasty. I wasn’t expecting it but I had skipped January so I figured at some point something would come. I’ve felt drained all day. I’ve also had a bad headache too. Awesome!

Tonight Scarlett told my mom she didn’t like her. It was in reply to my mom yelling at her to move as she was standing underneath my mom when she was trying to make tea. Hot water is never ideal. She said “me no like you nanny” then stomped out. Teenager alert! Lol

I watched Criminal Minds as it’s back on but now I’m in bed because my head in banging. I’ve taken more paracemtol as it’s been 4 hours now.


A murder, a party and losing the will to live

Friday I went to work. I felt like absolute shit. I was manic all day. Trying to catch up. Trying to do stuff. I made a fair dent in my emails.

After work we went home. There had been an incident near to the party venue at 2pm and I wasn’t sure if the road would be open in time. There had been a fatal stabbing and the road was cordoned off.

Saturday we woke up at 7:30ish. Mom had worked the night so she grabbed breakfast on her way home. We ate when she got in. Scarlett ate loads. I was due to go to the venue for 11. I needed to go to town to get her cake. So I put her down for a nap then at 9:45 Grandad picked me up. The road was still shut. I had phoned the venue at half 8 and they reckoned I was still able to go ahead with the party. So I went to Asda to sort her cake. I settled on one of her Cake Smash pictures on it. I grabbed myself a new top to wear then we paid and left. I stopped by Home to grab what I needed then I went to my nan’s. She lives nearer to the venue than I do and I was due there at 11ish.

I walked over. I was perplexed. I couldn’t figure out how I was meant to get in when the front of the entire building/flats was cordoned off, including the road. I walked round behind and found the security guy (we had spoken on the phone). He let me in and said he’d lift the car park barriers so my guests could come in and out. And when we are finished later to call him and he’d come lock up the building.

The soft play guy arrived to set up at 11:15. My nan came with the food. I decorated and everyone blew up the balloons. I can’t because I’m allergic to latex. The guy finished setting up and left.

Just before the party was due to start I creeped into the toilet so I could slap some makeup on and change my top. Then I headed back out. I still felt like shit but the party was actually happening so I “put my big girl pants on”.

People arrived. People had a laugh. The kids played. They ate. It was good. I did some mingling. I met some of her Nursery friend’s parents. They’re all lovely. The kids too.

We did some presents from Brett’s brother because they’re big and they said it’ll be easier for them to take them straight back home in the car. Otherwise I’d have to drag it to their house on the train next time we visit. It was a crayola my first easel set. She’ll love it.

We did the cake at 2ish then everyone slowly parted ways. We gave them all their party bags and then when they’d all gone we tidied up. The soft play guy came at 2:50 and put everything away. I paid the remaining fee. I called security to inform them that we were leaving then we left.

We stopped at my nans house for a cup of tea then we headed home. Scarlett had eaten a lot so she just had some chips with Brett. I had a chicken curry. She had her bath then she went to bed.

We both felt knackered so we climbed into bed at like 9:30. We were going to watch a film but instead we just laid in bed chatting. We went to bed quite early, must’ve been midnight.

Sunday Brett looked at trains and they were rail replacement so he said he’d go home the next day. Worked for me. Scarlett got up at 8. We had breakfast at 10 then I put Scarlett up for a nap. We woke her at 12:30 so we could go out for dinner. We went to the Beefeater in town. I had garlic flatbread for starter then a buttermilk fried chicken burger with chips for a main. Scarlett had chicken bites, chips and peas. She ate a little but she wasn’t overly hungry. She helped my mom eat her dinner though lol

We left the restaurant a 3:15 and headed to my Nan’s. We had a cup of tea then headed home at 5ish. Scarlett had a yoghurt then went up for a bath at 6:30. We got her into bed at 8pm. We wanted to watch a film. Brett said Django so I found Django Unchained on Netflix. We watched it. I made him some supper. I ate my leftover rice from the night before.

The film finished quite late. I needed a shower as I had Work the next day. So we jumped in the shower then got into bed.

My neck has been really painful. Neck. Not throat. My throat is tolerable. My neck hurts if I turn too far either way. If I tilt my head. If I swallow or cough. It’s ridiculous. I cried. In bed. In front of Brett. I hate crying but I hate crying with an audience even more!! He cuddles me and said I’d be ok. It helped. We went to sleep.

Today I woke up and I just felt like utter shit. I was sick in bathroom. My head was pounding. My neck was killing me. I called in dead sick then booked a doctors appointment. They gave me a triage call first then an appointment for 11:40. I watched more Hemlock Grove then I climbed into bed with Brett. He woke up and said he was going to head home. So he left at half 10. At 11:20 I set off for the Doctors. I saw the same doctor as last week and she couldn’t get me out of there quick enough. Apparently my neck pain is muscular and will go away on it’s own. Basically put up and shut up!

After the doctors I walked to my nans house. I had some lunch at 12:30 then at 3pm mom came round. We went to Morrison’s to grab some food for Work then we went and picked up Scarlett. She had a good day. She ate and slept well apparently.

We went home and did some colouring. We played with her baby dolls. I took her up for a bath. She won’t get undressed. Turns out she needed a poo. When she was finished I stripped her off and she had a bath. She had her bottle and I took her up to bed at 7:30 but she didn’t settle. Mom went up once to sort her out. She’d taken her trousers off. I went up the second time and brought her downstairs. We turnedthe lights off and just had the tv on, down low.

I took her back up to bed at 9:30 as she seemed more ready for bed. I think she was missing me because she sat with me, cuddling and kissing my face. Rubbing my arm. Playing with my hair. So I can’t be mad at that!

I watched Vera at 10pm. It’s almost 2 hours long so it’s only just finished. I’m headed to bed now.


4 days till baby is 2!

So I’ve just had the shittest day I’ve had in ages. And a lot of it was fuelled by tiredness, hunger, hormones and the bastard rain.

Friday’s journey to Brett’s house wasn’t bad. Just bit packed on the train. That’s the problem with travelling at rush hour. We got on the 5:15 and got off at 6:35 so not too bad. Brett met us on the platform. His mom was in the car waiting.

When we got back we had some dinner. We had chip shop because it’s a Friday. Scarlett had already eaten at Nursery so she just had some chips. Brett bathed her then we put her down to bed at 9:30. She took ages to drop off.

Brett fell asleep on the sofa at 10. I left him. I climbed into his bed. Played my iPhone games then went to sleep at 12:30. He climbed into bed at some point, he woke me up. But we both went back to sleep.

Saturday Scarlett stirred at 6:55. I heard her but as she’d woke me, I really needed a wee so I ran past her cot and went upstairs. When I came back down she’d settled so I climbed into bed and went back to sleep. I heard her again at 9:30. She was singing. I left her till almost 10 then I got her up. Brett didn’t get up. It annoyed me. He eventually came out the bedroom after Scarlett had already gone shopping with his mom and I had had a shower.

When they got back we headed out to see his family. We stopped at McDonald’s on the way as I was starving and Scarlett needed some lunch. We ate on the way. We were there till 3 then we headed back. I put Scarlett down for a nap. She slept for 90 minutes. I woke her up trying to get past the cot (his room is an obstacle course).

We put her dinner on at 6ish. She ate at 6:30. She had waffles, fish fingers and beans. Then a yoghurt. Standard lol

We ate at 7ish then I put her in the bath. Took ages to get her to go to sleep. Mostly because Brett was on the PS4 and took ages to get off it. We put her down then we watched a film in the front room. We watched paycheck. Not bad film. It had you guessing things, which I like.

He played his PS4, again. Whilst I played my game on my phone in bed. I went to sleep at about 1ish.

Sunday (today) I didn’t hear Scarlett until 9. She was singing so I left her be. Must’ve fell asleep. Woke up at 10 and she was quiet. Rolled over to wake Brett up. Told him it was 10 and we should get up. Slide off the bed to see her and the cot was empty. I figured his mom must’ve picked her up so I went upstairs for a wee. On the stairs I could see her feet on the sofa, she was sat with his brother. So I brushed my teeth and came down to get dressed. I told Brett we needed to relieve his brother from babysitting duties. He just stayed there so I left the bedroom and went into see Scarlett. She had already had her bottle. Then she had some grapes and a yoghurt. The dog was asleep on the sofa and Scarlett slammed her hand down when running past. It startled him and he bit her. She was really upset. I picked her up and took her into the kitchen so I could see her hand. It was a smallest of grazes. I tried to console her but she was heartbroken. I washed her hands to be safe (let’s be honest, dogs lick their own arses). I told her it was okay and he didn’t mean it, she just spooked him. Her cry was really getting to me. I could feel my eyes watering. I hate crying. And I hate public crying even more. I held it back till she composed herself. I took her in the lounge to dress her. She was much calmer. Then she took her dirty nappy out into the kitchen to put in the bin. There was people in the kitchen so I seized my chance to escape upstairs. I had a wee and cried. I cried because my heart hurt. I don’t like when she’s upset. I don’t like not being able to control things. It wasn’t really anyone’s fault. The dog is old and was asleep. She startled him. But he shouldn’t bite. I’m so hormonal. Since the coil I’ve been skipping my period every other month. And it’s annoying. Because yeah, no blood, yay brill. But hormones still rain on me. So I’m either a blubbering mess or a psycho bitch. No inbetween #ideal

I tried to put her down for a nap before dinner. Brett was on his PS4 and didn’t get the hint when I said I wanted to put her to sleep. So after 90 minutes of trying I gave up. Then we had dinner. We got our stuff together and we left to get the train at 4ish. There was rail replacement buses from Woking (2 stops from Home) and I can’t do them buses as they are coaches and I get motion sickness. So I asked my mom if she minded picking us up from Woking. My brother’s girlfriend lives in Woking so she said yeah ok I’ll drop her back when I get you. So ok cool.

We got off the train at 5pm. It’s been raining for 2 days. So it’s soaking wet outside. They tell me to exit via platform 5. So I do. Then I’m told they got stuck because there is a road closed and they got diverted for like 2 miles and can’t get to me so can I go back through the station to platform 1’s exit. So I go back in and explain to the guard. They let me through. I come out the other exit. See mom waving down the road so walk as fast as I can carrying our overnight bag and pushing the stroller. Eventually we’re all in the car. Wet but in. Off we go to drop Natalia home. Scarlett is asleep within minutes. Not ideal. But whatever.

We had to divert again on the way home but we finally arrived just after 6. Kitchen was a mess. The water was still turned off. My mom nipped next door to ask if she could fill up some bottles with water so we could at least make tea. Scarlett had a hissy fit. She sounded like she was in pain. She was really upset. She wouldn’t let anyone pick her up off the floor. She ended up in my mom’s arms and she handed her to me. She calmed down. I asked her what was wrong. She said her elbow hurt (no idea) so I asked if she wanted me to kiss it better. She said Yeah. So I did. Then I asked if she wanted her tea. She shook her head. I said what do you want? She said “my bottle”. So I put her pyjamas on and wiped her face (no bath so it’s the best I could do) then I made her milk. She drank it and seemed to perk up. My mom’s friend came round to fix the pipe on the washing machine. Scarlett said Nunight at 7:30 and I took her up. She went to sleep. Water was back on so I watched Vera at 8 then at 10 I got in the shower. Omg it was so nice to wash my hair. I hate going to work with greasy hair and lately my hair is nothing but greasy. Ughhh!

I laid on my bed for a while after, enjoying the warmth from the heating that had come on whilst I was showering.

Now I’m in bed. Can’t sleep as I didn’t get up till 10 but I’ll try my best!

Scarlett is turning 2 in 4 days (although it’s almost 3 days now). It’s gone by so quick but at the same time it’s gone slowly.

I’m off to dream about the time when my kitchen wasn’t a shit hole, my hair wasn’t constantly greasy and I didn’t feel like shit (sore throat is back).


Throat is still sore

Monday was great. I was really busy at work catching up. It was unfortunate that I had been on annual leave previous to falling sick. So I had been out of the office since December 22nd. I had 50 emails. But most were tied into email chains so only 1 email out of say 5 were actionable. Still, I made a massive dent in them. I felt rather productive. Silent Witness started at 9pm. New season. I love it. So glad we have a series link!

Tuesday my alarm didn’t go off. I woke up at 7:45 to my Nan banging on my front door. I had to quickly get dressed, make my lunch and go. I left my Nan dressing Scarlett. I made her bottle whilst I was making lunch in the kitchen. But that was all I did do. I hate being late. My mom had arrived from work to pick me up and had to wait as I was running late. I got to work at 8:10. I was so surprised it wasn’t any later. I had text on my way that I was going to be late and why so my manager was fine when I got in. I said I’d make it up in my lunch break. Standard procedure.

I finished off all my email catchup. Then I looked into some upcoming tasks. Got a lot of database maintenance coming up. That’ll keep me busy!!!!

Wednesday (today) I had a quieter day. I felt really tired. I couldn’t sleep the night before. Think I didn’t nod off until gone 1am. I was feeling really tired by lunch time. I caught up with some more Elementary on my lunch break. I’m on season 5 now!

I’m almost finished with my antibiotics. I’m still coughing but not as much. My throat is still sore on one side. It’s annoying me. Like why does it need to be sore!?

Not got much planned this week. I’m working tomorrow and Friday. Usual!

Friday Brett is coming down after work. No plans thus far. Just chill out. Probably watch a movie Saturday (either cinema or in bed). I’m looking for a quiet weekend. I’m still not 100%. I’d say I’m functioning at 80%. Almost there but not quite!


Flu or something similar

Sunday I felt sick as a dog. I came over all cold and started shivering like I was having some kind of fit. My teeth were chattering, my fingers went numb and I kept spasming everywhere. Then 2 hours later I came over all hot. I was sweating like someone had lit a fire. I don’t think I settled down to sleep till almost 4 and I woke up at least every hour till Scarlett woke up a 8:15.

We got up and I gave her a bottle. I felt so off. I couldn’t put my finger on it but I felt dodgy. I took her up to get dressed but I was overcome with the urge to vomit so we took a detour to the bathroom. I vomited all the water I’d just drank. Scarlett is a bit of a dirt bag. She was trying to stick her head over the toilet to see what I was doing. I think I yelled at her to stand behind me. She looked quite concerned. I reassured her that I’m ok. No sooner as I was sick that I stopped. I immediately felt better. How strange! Then I came over all hot again then shivering then hot. You get the idea. I dressed her, and myself then we came downstairs. She had breakfast then helped my Nan with the dinner. She had Scarlett sat on the worktop in the kitchen. She was cutting vegetables and Scarlett was putting them into a bowl. She’s so helpful, bless her.

My nan put her up for a nap then I woke her for dinner. She had more antibiotics. She didn’t eat much food but she loved her pudding. Obviously!

We stayed for the afternoon and left so I could get her bathed and in bed.

Tuesday I didn’t go to work. I had spent all night shivering and then intensely hot. I felt like absolute shite. I had had a headache since New Year’s Eve and even with paracetamol the fever and headache wasn’t going. So I booked an emergency doctors appointment. I couldn’t face the walk. It’s only 20 minutes but I just felt exhausted so my Grandad gave me a lift. I saw the doc at 12ish. He said probably viral but keep an eye on the temp and headache. Also any other symptoms. I walked the 2 minutes to my Nan’s house as she lives insanely close to the Doctors surgery. I stayed at hers all day.

Scarlett’s first day back at Nursery totally wiped her out. She was exhausted and moaned when I woke her for dinner. Tbf I should’ve left her asleep and fed her later. She wouldn’t drink anything so my Nan said to give her an ice lolly. It worked. She ate most of it. She had a few mouthfuls of her dinner then said she was finished. She had a yogurt. We headed home at 5.

My dad turned up as he was up here for a hospital appointment. He had my stepmom and siblings with him. They stayed for a cup of tea and a chat. When they left at 6:15 I bathed Scarlett and then she went to bed at 7.

She woke up in the night and asked to come in my bed. I don’t like co-sleeping with her. I fear I’ll squash her. So I let her fall asleep then I carried her back to her cot.

I went to sleep about half 12-1ish. I woke up at 2:30 with a raging headache. I was sweating profusely. My heart rate was 165 according to my Fitbit tracker. I felt sick and dizzy. I slowly made my way downstairs to forage for something dry to nibble. When I was pregnant I use to have excessive acid in my stomach so any time my stomach was empty I’d feel sick and would need something small to nibble. I grabbed a slice of bread and headed upstairs. I sat on my bed nibbling this piece of bread and drinking my water. I could see my blood pulsating in my head, in the corner of my vision. It was really weird. I still felt dizzy. I just sat there feeling like I’d rather die than put up with how I felt. I FaceTimed Brett crying that I felt so shitty. I’m so glad he picked up. I felt better after I finished eating, crying and my heart rate calmed down. I eventually went back to sleep.

Wednesday I got up at 7 with Scarlett. Got her dressed for Nursery. Did her bottle then my nan picked her up. I was hungry so I had a granola bar and some milk. Milk always helps the acid attacks on my stomach. I went up and got back into bed at 9:30ish and slept till my mom woke me at 1ish.

I realised I needed the loo but I didn’t quite make it as it appears on top of all the symptoms I have (chesty cough, sore throat, headache, fever, achy joints, sickness) I also have diarrhoea. So I can now safely say that I have already shit my pants and we’re only 3 days in the year. I fear this year may not turn out to be a great one!

I got dressed and we headed to my Nan’s as that’s where Scarlett is. We expected her to be asleep when we got there but she’d just woken up. She seemed less exhausted after her second day back. Much more happier and more like herself.

We took her home at 4ish. Mom cooked dinner. Scarlett ate more than she has done recently. I took her up for a bath. She had a shivering attack and kept saying she was cold. I could see she was. Everything on her body was purple except her head which was red. She felt so hot. As soon as she got out the bath I gave her calpol and Nurofen. Then after her bottle she had her antibiotics then she went up to bed.

Mom and I watched the soaps then she left for work.

I got in the bath at 9. It was lush to lay in hot water. My body ached a little less after. I got out, dressed and went downstairs to get a snack (in case I wake up in acid agony again) and some water. I also took paracetamol for my now permanent headache and to ward off the fever I could feel coming.

I laid in bed watching Elementary. I love this show.

Scarlett woke up at a quarter to midnight because I went in her room to check her and I was too noisy. She came in my room for a little bit. We FaceTimed Brett to say Hi. I played some food videos and she said yum. So I’m guessing we’ll have to try some of the recipes together. I told her she’s got her 2nd cake smash this weekend. I had totally forgotten how close it was after Christmas. I showed her the pics from last year and asked her if she wanted to do it again. She said yes. So hopefully that’ll be a nice treat for her to experience after a shitty week.

I put her back to bed at 12:30 then I watched some more Elementary. I switched it off just before 2.

I’m laid in bed and at this very moment my throat hurts, my chest hurts, everything still aches and my head is dull but I’m not feverish nor shivering. So maybe I’m on the up! Here’s hoping lol


New Year 2018

Sunday (New Year’s Eve):

I watched about 4/5 episodes of Elementary and went to bed at like 3am. Oops!

I had set my alarm to wake up at 8. To get my routine back. I forgot I’d done it so when it went off I couldn’t remember why I’d set it so I turned it off and went back to sleep.

Scarlett woke up at 10. She had her bottle and then I called 111. Finally got through and they said a doctor would call me back within 24 hours. They called when we were grabbing food at Morrison’s cafe. They said they’d like to see her so we booked in for an out of hours appointment at the hospital.

After we ate we went home and I put her down for a nap. I know what the hospital can be like and the last thing I wanted was a tired/hungry baby waiting for 2/3 hours.

She had some munchies whilst we waited in the waiting room. Surprisingly we got seen and diagnosed within half hour. So shocked. She’s got a touch of bronchitis so they’ve prescribe amoxicillin. They also suggested to use saline nasal drops to clear her congestion. As well as snuffle babe on her feet.

After the hospital we grabbed some dinner. She didn’t eat much. We ate my nans then we left for Home. My nan said if I wanted to come round for New Year’s Eve then I was welcome to stay. So as not to drag her out in the cold at 1am. So I flung some bits in a bag, did her bath then we headed back to my nans.

Scarlett didn’t go to bed until half 9. We played The Logo Boardgame. It was hard. I barely knew any answers lol it was all good fun though. We turned the tele on at midnight to watch the London Fireworks then I went up to check on Scarlett. She woke up so I brought her down for a bit. She looked shattered but she’s so defiant. And had a case of FOMO (fear of missing out) so she wouldn’t give in. I eventually took her back to bed at 1am then everyone left so we took the dirty dishes in to the kitchen then I headed to bed.

She was still awake when I came up to bed. I let her lay in the bed with me once I was ready for bed. She laid for 20 minutes, in the dark, to calm down then I put her back in the cot. She whined for a moment then when she realised I was still in the room and she was “okay”, she settled.

I’m laid in my nan’s spare room on a single bed. This is an experience. I haven’t slept in a single bed since we went on holiday a few years ago. I hope I don’t fall out!

2017 wasn’t great. It had a lot of downs compared to ups. But it is what it is.

Hopefully 2018 will bring more happiness, more opportunities, more fun and more laughter. Oh and good health. That’s all we can ask for.

Happy New Year everyone. From my home to yours…
