2013 hasn’t been an easy year for us as a family. There were more downs than ups, lots of struggles that I might or might not blog about in the future, but for the moment they are too raw to share with the world and the one person who has made me smile through it all every single day was Amy.
She’s really kept me going and made me put on a brave face when all I wanted to do was pull a blanket over my head and have a good old cry. She’s come on leaps over the last 12 months and my clumsy toddler has turned into a beautiful and empathetic little girl that knows exactly when I need a big hug, cheeky grin or one of her crazy stunts to cheer me up.
I can’t even say how much I love her. She really is my absolute everything and I am determined to make 2014 a year full of fun for us. I want to enjoy every single moment with her and make memories that we’ll never forget. Life is too short for negativity and what ifs, so this year will be all about grabbing every opportunity that comes our way and making the most of everything.
I also want to make Mummy Alarm more about us as a family. At the moment, it has more of a magazine(y) feel to it with lots of lifestyle and advice posts, but I created this space to record our life as a family and I feel like this has somehow taken a step back.
In 2014, I want to post a seasonal recipe every Monday from next week onward, a fun craft on Tuesday and my Wednesday Wishlist will be up and running every Wednesday. Thursdays and Fridays will be open for any personal musings and on Saturday and Sunday, I will be sharing my favourite photos of the week as well as a post about our favourite children’s book of the last seven days. I hope you’ll enjoy it and stick around.
Lots of love and Happy New Year to you all!
