Wow, how time flies! I didn't realise it had been so long since I last blogged, I really need to get better access, I am trying to get a new laptop as I only have a business one which I don't like to use for personal stuff.
Anyway, I will make more of an effort to record my experiences as it's quite therapeutic and I should indulge myself a little more.
I managed the whole Xmas break with only one bad day! I hosted Xmas and had my parents staying which was absolutely fantastic. However, Xmas is always a stressful time for me as I like to make sure everyone has everything they need and all the trimmings are taken care of. I had alot of help this year, the kids did the decorations and my hubby did alot of the preparations and my parents helped while they were with us too. It was lovely, but I am now enjoying a slower pace and a more relaxing couple of days before going back to work.
I'm feeling quite positive too, financially we're not in a bad state considering it's January and I am more able to cope with my new job as I've finally got some experience under by belt. This year we are going to focus on decorating the house as we haven't done much to it since we moved in 4 years ago.
I've learnt my limits and although sometimes I do still push myself to the max, I generally know when to stop.
This year I am feeling grateful for what I have; my husband, my family, my friends, my job, my life!
It could be so much worse, I am a very lucky person.
