The great thing about blogging is being able to look back over the year and see what you got up to, and my kids are going to be able to read all the things we did when they are older.
However it is nice just to have a little look at what we did in 2015.
It saw me starting the Project 365 photo a day, well I completed it and I have just ordered my photobook which has every picture of the year. I also have included my Me and Mine family project in it for the start of each month. I am really proud that I completed it.
This was my last photo of the year, on New Years Eve!
We also visited Rusty, our Hearing Dog for the Deaf puppy, he had completed all of his soundwork and was ready to go to his recipient. We were invited along to see him working, it was a very proud moment and I couldn’t help but smile the whole time!
We got back into decorating and decided that my sons bedroom needed changing and sorting out. It is a very small room and needed some very clever storage and thinking. He loves his new bedroom and it works so much better for him.
I was invited along to my first proper bloggers event, it involved me going to London on my own and visiting the Shard! I was soooo excited but also soooo nervous, however I did it and loved it. It was a great event and amazing going up into the Shard.
We had a new bed delivered! This finished off our bedroom and gave us a beautiful new bed to sleep on, it is amazing! Makes such a difference having a decent bed to sleep on.
We got invited to Chessington for a bloggers event, I had never been to one of these before with the kids but they had the most amazing day. Massive hotel breakfast, shows and a day around Chessington, they were so happy!
The puppy Rusty who we socialised for 14 months came to visit us for the day, we were beyond excited! This is such a lovely moment to have as we got to see him again but also meet his wonderful recipient who has been so wonderful in letting us know how he is getting on but who went the extra mile and came to visit us. The kids were so happy to see him again.
April was full of lovely walks, nicest one was in Alresford, which we did a couple of times with friends.
This month was full, with the girls birthday, family birthdays, school holidays and then finished off with a holiday to Devon.
In June we took the children to our first festival, this was a local one and was a warm up to our Camp Bestival visit!
Then it was the start of the school holidays! I thought I would vlog it, as I am sure it would be one of the last ones where Tyler was with us a lot of the time. I am glad we did! The kids love watching them back and it does make it all worth it.
August was super fun! It was the school holidays so I didn’t blog much but I did vlog it still, we had a week which was filled with illness but then we went to Camp Bestival! How much fun was it there! However we want to go again this year but we are going to try to plan our day visit better, we didn’t get to do everything we wanted and struggled to fit everything in.
Then we had our Centre Parcs holiday! How much fun is it there!!
A emotional month, we had a death in the family which hit us quite hard. Also my son started secondary school. He’s really enjoying it, made new friends and enjoys most of his subjects. I am very proud of him for dealing so well with it.
I was given a voucher for an afternoon tea at Houghton Lodge, this was a lovely day out with hubby and we enjoyed some peace and quiet!
Had a crazy busy but fun day at the Lego Friends event, a few hours playing at Legoland and then a great party for the kids, super fun!
Then spent ages getting ready for Halloween!
The weather didn’t quite know what it was doing this year, it was quite warm which meant some lovely walks along the beach at Lee On Solent.
We had great fun at some firework events but the highlight of November for us was Bridgwater Carnival, the floats in the evening was amazing and a sight to be seen!
The run up to Christmas, when everyone has so much on and kids get so excited come Christmas they are all shattered and crash and burn! That summed up our December!
Visited family and had some lovely days shopping with hubby, yes my hubby happily shopped for 3 hours solid!
Tyler started it off by having a great time learning to drive a car at the age of 11!
We visited Santa and had fun in a giant snow globe!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from all of us!
I hope you all have a wonderful 2016, fun filled and happy.
