Happy New Year! My Goals for 2017

Happy New Year everybody! 

I can’t believe a year has come and gone already – it has gone so fast and so much has happened since last year.

I’ve had a new baby, LO turned three, Baby Girl had her first Christmas and is now standing and cruising at 7 months, I started my yoga practice, fitness journey, and Daddy P and I had our 10th year anniversary. I’ve also found out on of my closest friends is expecting. Such joyous times!

2016 was not really a bad year for us. I’ve seen loads of things on my SM feeds like “f**k 2016 and its negativity, etc” so maybe it wasn’t the best year for some. We did experience slightly more money problems this year but that was to be expected as we now have an extra person added to our family.

Life Goals 2017

I set myself some pretty achievable goals for 2017. I don’t believe in New Year’s resolution because the term gets used a lot for novelty goals that people never really stick to. For me, 2017 is all about adopting a sustainable lifestyle; eating a balanced diet, keeping fit regularly, adding in a few minutes of meditation here and there, and to be mindful in everything I do.

World Book Day – March 3rd 2016

A date for your diary…

Here’s What We Got LO This Christmas…

To be honest, I think we’ve gone a little overboard as we ended up spending so much on LO and not much on anyone else this year. I feel a bit guilty but I’ve been strapped for cash and Daddy P wanted to splash out on him so we got a few good things and a few extravagant things all from the lovely kids store, Smyths.

The Greenwich Mummy | What We Got LO For Christmas 2015
LO’s Christmas Presents from Smyths UK

*prices are correct as from when we bought them on 02/12/15*

  1. Little Elf ride-on quad bike, £34.99
  2. 21″ natural guitar, £13.99
  3. Peppa Pig dough activity case, £9.99
  4. Molto 4-storey parking garage, £24.99
  5. 20 piece fire station play set, £6.99

Overall, we didn’t spend too much I guess (under £100) which is pretty decent for 5 toys. Daddy P picked out the quad bike as it’s something he’s wanted to get LO for a little while (must be a man thing) and the guitar and dough activity case were items I thought he’d like as he was playing with them so much on a recent play date with a friend. We saw the garage and thought he would definitely like that as he always plays with the one at nursery and we don’t have anything like it at home. The fire station set was a cheap spontaneous present as he loves anything that is to do with fire engines and thought it’d make a great extra gift.

… and what did mummy & daddy get each other?

Daddy P hasn’t gotten me anything yet but I am not too fussed as he’s promised to take me to dinner at Gaucho’s on Boxing Day which I shall hold him to. 🙂 I’ve got him a little cologne for men for Christmas which I think he will like (fingers crossed).

If you’re still looking for last minute presents or stocking fillers at Smyths, they’re open until Wednesday 23rd or order online by Monday to get your delivery in time for Christmas.

I’ve already put up my Christmas tree!

It’s almost that time of the year!

I can’t believe that Christmas is just a month (and a half) away?!

I’m not joking, I’ve already put up my tree but I’m not going to post a photo just yet as it’s still slightly bare so I’ve found a pretty photo on Google for you to admire in the meantime…

Bring on the cinnamon scented candles, presents and mince pies! 🙂
