hello 2016!

31 December 2015

Happy New Year to you all!! I hope you have a fantastic 2016.
I wrote a post on this day last year, and mentioned how I was happy with the way things were and just wanted to maintain it. Well we ended up gaining another shop and another child on the way, so things certainly didn't stay as they were! Anyhow, it was a good year, not without it's worries and anxieties but they all seem to have come good in the end (mostly!).
This year we will have some big decisions to make...and I will be working and having a baby at the same time, not sure how that will work out!
Our littlun has become a funny and very sociable little person, always the entertainer and adventurer.
This pregnancy has not been an easy one. The morning sickness lasted a good four months, and lots of other uncomfortable side effects this time around. All is healthy though, so I'll grin and bear it, and try to think how it will all be but a vague memory once the baby comes ; )

Our xmas tree has now gone, and I managed a good spring cleaning of downstairs (I tackle the upstairs tomorrow ; )
Where the xmas tree was, I am planning to make a daytime baby area, with moses basket and changing mat. Our house is very small upstairs, but the baby will sleep in our room for the first six months at least.
Anyways, the corner of our living room is occupied by our daughter's toys (like everywhere else in the house!). I gave her this vintage pull along toy for xmas, but Buzz Lightyear is by far her fave!

I shall be utilising this xmas pressie from my mister...bed tray with candles, oils and bell!

Today I made a wooden hanger for this poster I bought a while ago. I thought it would be prefect for spring. As soon as xmas is over, it is spring to me!

The weather has been mild but very stormy here. My mister and tot did manage some walks to the woods and I took her for a blustery walk on the beach, but mostly we've been tucked up at home, in front of the fire.

Best wishes everyone! xxx
