Guess who’s back!? Back again πŸ™‚ No… (Not Eminem) Meeeee…… Have you missed me!? Ha! 

I have been enjoying being away from the computer for a little too long but now I am back for good!!

It has been a mad busy Christmas with work and family.

I loved every minute I spent it with my family. 

Can’t believe I had to work over Christmas though. 

Not fun!! Ha! 

Happy to have had a few days off to recover and eat lots of food and drink.

Also I need to get back on track after that ✔️

How Was Your Christmas And New Year?

Did you all have a lovely Christmas and New Year? I really enjoyed the lay-ins whilst the kids were off and hated getting up early in the dark and cold today, I can tell you!! I Want To Hibernate!!

I know we should not wish time away but I can not wait for Spring. I hate being cold in Winter I just want to hide away in the warm and eat! I don’t want to go anywhere.

Mini-me and I had a fun day out in London a few days ago in the search of some gluten-free doughnuts. 

We caught 2 trains to London, took a long 2 ish miles walk from St Pancras to the bottom of Oxford Street and visited a bakery in Selfridges to buy some gluten-free treats my Daughter had seen on Instagram.

They were expensive but worth every penny to see the smile on her face!!

Started one of my new year’s resolutions already with a run with Mollie but the other will have to wait until all the booze and chocolate has been finished off or removed from the house!!

I really need to get healthier in 2019.

I don’t often make goals but… Here is mine for this year:

New Years Goals:

1. Get back into running regularly again.

2. Cut out alcohol unless going out out, cut down on sugar and eat healthier foods.

3. Find another job to run along my business with daytime hours that is fun and makes me happy. I love the job I am working in now but hate late nights and really want to work in fashion. Shoes and clothes make me happy πŸ˜‰ My Husband always said I would have been good at designing shoes or shopping for others!! A personal shoppers job would be perfect but I know I would never find a job like that near me πŸ™

4. Try to stop stressing about the little things and laugh more. Life is to short to always stress about the little things, although I find I am always stressing!!

What are your goals for 2019?

    That sounds so lovely. We had to be GF for a while and it was somewhat challenging to find delicious treats but I was surprised at how many more options there were in local stores for regular food. wishing you luck on the job search. Finding a job that you enjoy and even gives you joy at times really impacts how we feel about life in general.

      Thank you. My Daughter has been gf since last April and we still find it challenging πŸ™
