First post of 2015! Whoop! Happy New Year folks! We spent New Year’s Eve in Glasgow sans kiddos for the first time ever! I was planning a ker-azy night out but once we were actually there and it was raining (it rained the *entire* time we were there) and it was going to cost £30 in a cab each way…well, the grumpy old lady in me won out and we ended up staying at our hotel where they had a Hogmanay Ball on and we watched the fireworks from our balcony. More subdued than we originally planned for but we were together and that’s all that matters. We came home yesterday after being away since Christmas morning. I had all kinds of new year intentions for today but instead I caught up with a friend, cleaned out the fridge and did a super duper healthy big shop. Once upon a time I lovingly steamed veg and made wonderful purees and cut things to be the perfect size for finger food for my little darlings. The past couple of weeks their diet has consisted of selection boxes, crisps and leftovers. Epic parenting.

Earlier this week we took the kids up to the moors to play in the snow. It was about an hours drive from my inlaws and the road was insanely icy (so glad the Mr was driving!) but totally worth it. The kids were so excited and it gave me an excuse to wear my new faux fur coat and feel like I was in Dynasty so everyone was happy. We didn’t take the children’s sledge with us but luckily Grandpop had some plastic sheeting in the boot of the car. Incase you hadn’t guessed, we’re a bit lax where health and safety is concerned.

I’m really excited about Living Arrows starting next week! If you’re a photography loving mum, I hope you’ll join us for a year of capturing our children. I can’t wait to get started and the photos I’ve seen so far look beaut! Make sure you pop back to see! Next week Annie from Mammasaurus will be sharing the story behind her photo which is good as all I have planned for the week is getting my car serviced so it would be a bit of a boring post otherwise. If you have a question for Annie about taking photos, let me know!

Have a fab weekend!
