Here’s to another year, a new diary waiting to be written, memories to be made and adventures to be had. Let’s make this a good one.
So we stayed home for New Years Eve, no surprise there, we have three little ones! Dan cooked a meal, a delicious vegan one for me, and a steak for him ( so grateful I did not have to cook that!). I had a scrummy g&t, cheers to his clients for the large bottle of Hendricks, and he even cut ribbons of cucumber with the potato peeler – cuteness!
Little did I realise he wanted to challenge me to a Mario Party game on the Switch! Well it was not exactly how I envisaged my evening, but it was good fun all the same. Although I swear he bought the switch for Grayson for Christmas, so he can play it himself.
Nintendo off for midnight, no way I was missing our fabulous fireworks, London did us proud as usual. We do celebrations well, don’t we.
Perfect start to the year we went off to the woods for a chilly but bright winters walk. Mum and Dad came, plus Katie, Phoebe & Jude. It was so lovely to be out in the fresh air. It’s so important to the children too, they need to run, play and be free. They love the woods, we spent so much time there over the summer but have been a bit rubbish at getting out the past few months as it’s got chillier.
Hunting for the painted rocks is their absolute favourite, with every good intention I plan on adding to the rocks in the woods, but I am so artistically challenged! Maybe, probably, ok, definitely I need to get over myself and just do it. Who really is going to judge me, they are anonymous, what am I so scared about? Why am I scared of painting rocks, what on earth is wrong with me?
That’s my thing for 2019, to be me, to be brave, and to just do it, starting with awfully painted rocks it seems.
