Cheers and Happy New Year yet again! I hope the first couple of days of 2015 have treated you well. We had a quiet NYE at my parents house with the little man. I was happy I managed to stay awake until midnight and say goodbye to what was an incredible year, as well as welcoming a new year I’m really excited about!

I’ve been getting myself super organised using my Shining Year workbooks and calendar but also a new technique I’m using as well, and so far it’s working, although we are only 4 days into the month! I do feel a lot more focused which has to be good! James and I have chatted about how we are going to manage things with Finley and sleep, we are also going to aim to have a date night once a month if my parents don’t mind watching him for a couple of hours.

Getting in a big healthy food shop! I’m still not a massive fan of online grocery shopping as I like to wonder round the isles and pick out nice things.

Sending out my latest newsletter, I really enjoyed writing it! // reading How to be a hip mama without losing your cool – this book really spoke to me and it was so helpful reading the stories of other women I can relate to // sales shopping, I’ve got some great bargains and really updated my wardrobe! // fitting into some old jeans I haven’t worn for ages // James baby wearing Fin, so adorable! // that New Year fresh start feeling // Finley, always Finley :-)
