New year 2018

Would like to say thank you to you all, without you guys reading what I write I wouldn’t be writing. Thank you for the support with Z, from family to friends to his teachers.

I was quite lucky in 2017, I can’t say it was one of those years I’m glad to see the back of, ok we lost my Nan, but that was also a small blessing for her. We lost a friend along the way too. But I’m sure that really was it.

I know I fought for Z’s pull ups and got them. I made many a new friends this year, I’ve laughed, I’ve cried, I’ve had nights out and things have been cancelled. As a family we’ve accomplished new places, theme parks being and the cinema being a few.

We’ve spent many days at the beach, at friends houses, parks and in the garden.

We’ve progressed so much this year I’m exciting to see where 2018 takes us. I think if the words continue we may even try and get out of nappies!

So 2018, what will it have in store?

There’s a few things I’m going to try and change, again like everyone says my diet will be a big one, with Z getting bigger he can run faster so I need to keep up with him! That means get myself into more exercise, get my butt back to Nordic walking too!

I’m going to try and do my bit for the environment too with cutting down with what I buy. I’m hoping to start using more local shops for fruit and veg, that means I’ll have less packaging. I went to reusable sanitary products earlier in the year that was more an allergy thing but I love them and found a new site so I can actually customise them! Also on that site I’ve found some reusable sponges and kitchen towel. Can’t wait for them to arrive now! I’ve personally stopped using straws, I can’t stop Z as that’s what his smoothies come with. I can’t quite stop using my coffee machine, that will have to be another new year! I need to try and remember my bags when I go shopping so I won’t buy any bags. That’s going to be a tough one as I never remember my bags! I’m seeing a pledge here to cut down on my plastic waste which can only be a good thing.

As for my house hopefully when it finally gets finished I’ll keep it tidy! I’d say I’d have a huge clear out but we have done that this year there’s not actually that much crap here, well it is but it’s crap I want to keep!

So from Z and myself we would like to wish you all a Happy New Year and will look forward to everything 2018 has to offer!
