Phew! It is the second week of January already and i feel like i haven't even finished sorting out from the holiday season! Since my last lately post, there has been lots of going on's to share!
-I passed my driving test! I mentioned this on a previous post. I took my test a week before Christmas and i cannot believe i passed first time! I was so nervous and pulled of twice in reverse instead of second and once in neutral. I didn't have any major faults though and passed! I am getting a car next week which i am so so excited about. I haven't driven since passing my test and i have seriously itchy feet!
-Christmas! I haven't done a post on Christmas really. I didn't take my camera with us and just used my iphone because i wanted to be in the moment as much as possible and not worry about trying to get the best shots i could. I just relaxed and had a lovely time. I was truly spoilt by my husband. He bought me a brand new record player, some new pixie boots and he handpicked two records for me from the vintage store! He bought me a Hans Christian Anderson story book record and the sleeping beauty ballet music record. He did good and is very much a keeper! We spent the day with his family and boxing day with mine. We also had a third Christmas on Sunday with more of my family and it was just lovely to have an extra special day.
-Advent calender activities. We finished all 24 of them and i am already coming up with ideas for next year already! I think my favourite this year was all of us wearing underwear on our heads during dinner! We all had a really big giggle and kept laughing at each other. Very much one for next year :)
-A new dog! We have a new dog. We rehomed him a few months back but i admit now, i have struggled to come to terms with having a dog. I am alot happier about having him now and wanted to talk a little about him. He is called Rusty and is a large springer spaniel. He is SUCH a sweetie and the most silliest dog ever. I am sure he has "small dog syndrome" as he thinks he can fit into the smallest gaps. We all love him and glad he is with us. I shall be sharing some photographs of him soon!
Things are starting to get back to normal now. Elle started back at school yesterday and i have my routine back. I thrive on a routine and even though i am missing Elle, i am glad to be back to normal. Mia has started to ask about nursery and we are looking at putting her in one morning or afternoon a week from april and then let her start longer hours from september. She will get her free funding from april but i am not ready for her to go any longer! I think one session at the moment will be perfect for her so it's not so overwhelming (for us both!). There is a little nursery in the grounds of Elle's school, so we are going to be looking there in the next week to make sure we like it for her.
So next week, i should be getting a car and this whole new world has opened up! I can visit family now and take Mia to some indoor play centres during the day! I just cannot wait!
