Me and Mine (January 2018)

Wednesday, 31 January 2018


I have always loved looking at bloggers Me and Mine posts and thought it was a lovely idea. I just kept putting off doing it because I hate being in photographs but I thought it is the perfect time to start right now. We have a fresh start this year and have so many exciting things planned and it will be really nice to have a monthly family photo to look back on at the end of the year where we can reminisce and remember what we were doing in each picture.

This month has been quite up and down. The kids have gone back to school after a lovely few weeks together over Christmas and Sam is working long hours at work so that we have some extra money when we move house very soon! On the plus side the house hunting is going extremely well so far and we are sure we will find the perfect house soon. Sam now has weekends off work which has meant we get more family time. We had a sleepover at the in-laws with all 4 kids earlier in the month. Took the kids to see the new Star Wars movie, where they all dressed up as their favourite characters. 


Me and Sam managed to get out without the kids too to go and watch Hollywood Undead. We love going to gigs together and it was a great first gig for 2018. We haven't got outdoors much this year besides school runs with all the ice and snow but this weekend we popped out to Coombe Abbey Country Park where we climbed trees, yes the grown ups did too! We played in the park and made a den. It was lovely to get out and it has made me really excited for more outdoor adventures this year.

January has been a good start and I am looking forward to seeing what February has to offer.
