What I am thankful for December 2019

December was a fantastic month for me. I love the whole run up to Christmas as well as the whole festive season. I had two weeks of half term off work and I spent every single minute appreciating it and spending time with my family and friends.

Here are my top 5 things I was thankful for

  1.  No school or work for 2 weeks!
  2.  Lots of yummy food and drink (which means I need to stop eating the left overs lol)
  3.  Catching up with my family who live in Manchester
  4.  My car, for getting us out and about to make some wonderful memories
  5.  My friend B for being mummy number two to my pup. He stayed with her while we went away. My mum has a big dog and we didn’t want the two not getting along.

How was your December?

    How glorious was those two weeks off in December. I have to say that we found it really difficult to get back into the swing of things this week. Not wanting to get into normal clothes, stay in bed for as long as the little lady will allow and that chocolate and bad food was acceptable at any time of the day.

      Same here to be honest haha! we are still struggling with getting back to eating proper food at normal times and getting up and out in the mornings isn’t easy either!

    December was a mixed bag for us. Lots of lovely seasonal moments, but also my eldest being very ill with the flu for over a week. Thankfully everyone was healthy over Christmas itself.
