As the end of the year approaches it’s time to reflect on what has passed and look forward to the year to come. I know that this time last year I had no idea that I would be where I am now, in a brand new home, having so much that I could only dream of before. Life had become very difficult in our old home, and although I loved the area and our neighbours, and the kids school, I longed to have somewhere bigger to live. We were really overcrowded and stress levels were high. Sleep was a word no longer in my vocabulary because it’s hard to sleep in a house that is always awake. And no matter how I tried to make the house nicer nothing really worked. It was too small, and we had way too much stuff, too much clutter. I had to cook dinner in ’rounds’ because my kitchen was too small to cook for seven people at the same time. Things are so different now, I still can’t quite believe it. Of course moving house wasn’t easy, in fact I hated every moment of the actual move, it was my worst nightmare come true. I really would be happy to never have to move ever again. Then there were problems finding a school for the littlies, so many of the local schools just didn’t have places for all three of them, but we got there in the end.
Back in February my Little Man went for his very first haircut. This was a momentous moment as I’d allowed his curly blonde locks to grow really long and having them chopped off completely changed his appearance. Then in March we were invited to a press event for Start-Rite Shoes where the Little Man took to the Catwalk.
We’ve had some lovely days out in our home town, most memorable being our trips to see A Squash and a Squeeze at Gas Hall, Room on the Broom at the Town Hall and last week we went to see What the Ladybird Heard.
