New Year 2018

If you are reading this congratulations on Surviving 2017.

You did it. We did it. For some it was easy to complete for others it was difficult.

For me I expected it to be the best year of my life as it began with a three month trip to Thailand. I was finally going traveling.

Unfortunately my trip was cut short, when my auntie passed away and came back to be here with my family. It was the first time someone close passed away and I thought I would be emotionally stronger but it honestly broke me.

Shortly after lots of things started to go wrong, my boyfriend has had two operations and been of work for almost 4 months now. He also had family members pass away.

Although this year hasn’t been the best I always like to take the positives out if it. I got a higher job position I’m now a valuations manager for an estate agent. I’ve found my passion for organising myself ( can’t wait to start using my new Filofax in 2018) I got my eyebrows microbladed and I love them!

Whatever happened in 2017… tomorrow is s blank page of a 365 page book. Forget the negatives, only take away positive learning from them. Focus on what you are good at and make it better. I have no idea what 2018 has stored for me. I feel there are a lot of changes happening for me. I know whatever happens I have the best support network, and my auntie will be watching over me and guiding me.

My only resolution is for this time next year to not feel like I hated the year and that I can’t wait for a new one. I want to have no regrets.

Happy new year everyone.

Christmas movies

It’s time to get in your winter pjs, make hot snacks and cuddle up under your furr throw. Switch the TV on and what are you going to watch….

Here are my Top 5 Christmas films( in no perticular order because I love all Christmas films way to much so they are all number

  1. The grinch

I know he’s Mean and hairy and smelly. His hand are cold and clammy but I think he’s kind of sweeet. If Cindy Lou says so then it must be true. This film is a family favourite of mine. We use this film to start to the countdown to Christmas. Always after fireworks night, that our official Christmas countdown. It’s so heart warming and perfect to watch with the family.

  1. Elf

“Santa, I know him I know him” literally such a heart warming film! Every time I watch it the funny bits seem to get funnier! And then there’s one of those cry with happiness moments! It’s also an easy watch! I love to watch this one in my Christmas jumper!

  1. Homealone

Always a good shout! No matter which one you watch! Kevin is the real life version of Denis the menas and clue in the title he’s gets left alone at home. He’s such a cheeky chappy and you will grow to love him! If your looking for a longer film to snug up on the sofa too this is the one! Ps I think the second one is my fave

  1. Arther Christmas

Arther is my spirit animal he is super clumsy and is obsessed with Christmas! This film is a Christmas adventure with super cute and loving characters ( for example Santa and his family) it has a modern feel and is great to explain to kids how Santa works.

  1. Scrooge

Everyone has the one classic christmas film that they love and this is mine! There are so many versions but I generally love them all. Always one that leave you thinking about your own life and makes you appreciate everything

I would love to hear your favourite Christmas films!!!!
