Five On Friday!

With taking part in Blogmas 2014 this month I haven't had much time to just sit and write about what's going on in our world. So therefore I figured Five On Friday would be perfect opportunity :)


Emilie has been unwell all week.. It started with a brutal cold and has developed into Croup. She isn't eating or sleeping, therefore not a lot of us are sleeping. Poor thing was awake with a coughing fit from 2.45am this morning. I could tell that she really wanted to sleep but every time she dosed off she would start coughing again. She's exhausted, I'm exhausted and neither of us have a lot of patients at the moment.. However she is the only one that can get away with throwing herself on the floor whilst having a tantrum..


James has his first wobbly tooth! I'm asking myself how he is even old enough to be hitting that milestone yet. He's excited but worried that it's going to hurt when it does eventually fall out. I think the promise of money from the tooth fairy is helping to alleviate that..


I want to take a minute to rave about my new iPhone 6 Plus! Going from the iPhone 4 to the 6 Plus there is such a big difference! It's quicker, the camera is a million times better and Suri is quite funny if you're bored! I was worried that it was going to be too big but I can still use it one handed whilst pushing the pushchair so no problems there :) It's safe to say that I'm very happy with my early Christmas present..


Anthony has eleven days off over Christmas and to say that he's looking forward to it would be a slight understatement. He's counting down the days until he finishes at lunch time on Christmas Eve. James finishes school this afternoon and I'm happy that we're going to have some down time. Towards the end of each term James is so ready to have some time off. He's tired and in need of a rest.. I foresee some Christmas movies, snuggles on the sofa and bundling up for some chilly mornings at the park in our very near future.


Do you make new years resolutions? For the past two years I haven't and instead gone for a word for the year. This past year my word was 'Connect'. I wanted to connect more with people. My family, my friends both in real life and online. I think I've managed to keep it in my back of my mind for the year and I've definitely improved my.... Connections :)

I've started thinking about my new word for 2015.. I don't have it yet.. Last year I struggled for weeks and then it suddenly came to me on New Years Eve. Maybe I'll figured it out sooner this year?


  1. YAY! Mark has that same amount of time off to...I think he's feeling exactly like Anthony. Excited for them. :) Hope your baby girl gets to feeling 100% again soon! xx

  2. I hope your little girl starts to feel better :) Found you on the link up

LOL about the tantrum (if only us Mamas could throw ourselves on the floor like that!).......have a lovely weekend! Wow! So many days holidays....you'll have a LOVELY time all together! Brilliant! So happy for you!

  4. That little girl looks too sweet to be sick! What a precious thing. Hope she feels better soon and doesn't pass it along!
