Jolly January: Updates and Plans

Hi Flamingos 
I hope everyone had an amazing Christmas and New Year! I sure did, I visited my mum and family who live 100 miles away so it was great to see everyone after not seeing them for a while. We had a couple of parties and my kids enjoyed seeing their grandparents and the rest of the family. I was super happy to see my mum too because she's like my best friend 💜

Anyway its normal routines for us all now, I'm now back home in Glasgow and the kids are back at school/nursery and my blogging routine is back to what it used to be. I am missing the Christmas holidays already. I feel they went far too quickly, don't you think?

I have a few goals for the year ahead but I also have some to do for this month too so you know I think its good to have little set goals for the month and its possible that I will update each post more than once as we all know months can change.

  • My mum got a puppy and he's called 'Bertie' he is an Airedale Terrier and he is just adorable
  • I started drawing again, I love art so I bought myself some drawing supplies and started to doodle every now and again.

Things Happening this month
  • I am back at the gym after a couple of months of not going. I wasn't looking forward to it to begin with but I am starting to enjoy it more now.
  • It is my daughters 5th birthday, honestly I don't know where the time has gone!
  • My vintage dressing table is coming, I am so excited to show you it.
  • Myself and my partner are going for a belated anniversary meal (been together for 6 years now) we don't know where yet but we are looking.
  •  I will also be filming more youtube videos for my youtube channel, if you haven't subscribed yet its on the right hand sidebar
