Reflecting on 2016
As the end of 2016 approaches I've been thinking about the past year and how our family has changed since the end of 2015.
I kind of feel like I lost most of 2016. I feel like it's passed me by as I suffered through a pretty rubbish pregnancy and then a not-so-fantastic birth.
The children have had another amazing year full of achievements - T has had some great results in tests at school, if he keeps it up I think he'll end up with some fantastic grades when he moves on to college. N has won even more medals for gymnastics and also netball. E is learning new things all the time and is always so proud to show off her new talents. Finally Z, I know she's only a few months old but she's already able to do so much. I think I'd prefer her to slow down a bit though so I can keep my baby for longer!
With regards to blogging, I've been forced to take a step back this year. It's been frustrating at times because I've had to turn down some brilliant opportunities but I just couldn't manage everything with how I was feeling. On the plus side, it made me consider merging both of my blogs together and since I've been posting my book reviews here on V Family Fun instead of Me, My Books and I I've been much happier. I just love having everything in one place, it definitely makes blogging much easier for me.
So, looking forward to 2017. I'm hoping to find a bit more time for blogging as Z grows, T is going on a school trip to Belgium which will be his first trip abroad without us (worried mum alert)! I have two children taking big steps at school - N starts secondary school and E will be starting pre-school. We have to make a decision about our living arrangements (do we extend our current house or move to a bigger one) and finally, now I'm definitely not going to have any more children, I'd like to get my weight down to a more comfortable level.
Have you had a successful 2016? Are you looking forward to anything specific in 2017? I'd love to hear from you.
