The January Tag


I was recently tagged by Lisa over at Oh Luna to complete The January Tag. I made it one of goals this year to share more personal posts on my blog, so I thought it would be a perfect start!

Happy New Year! How did you welcome the year in?

We were invited to a friends to see in the New Year, but with three little ones it obviously wasn't possible for us to both go. Instead Jack and I got a takeaway, and he popped over to the party for a few hours. I managed to stay up until midnight, so Jack came home just before to see in the New Year together... and then went to bed as soon as it was 12.01!

Did you make any New Years resolutions? Share them!

I haven't made resolutions for a long time now, as I just can't see to stick to them. But I have made some personal and blog goals this year instead. I shared them on my blog here.

Are you feeling motivated now the New Year has been and gone?

Definitely! I am really hoping to get back into the swing of blogging and filming regularly this year. The first half of last year was a blur, as we were adjusting to life as a family of 5. But now we are in such a good routine with the littles, I'm hoping I can find a good routine with my blog too.

Name one thing you want to smash this year in terms of blog goals?

As I said at the beginning of this post, I really want to write more personal posts this year. I feel as if my blog lost it's way a little bit last year, but I'm hoping if I find the right routine, I'll be able to share more posts from the heart.

What do you want to achieve in every day life?

I really want to branch out in the kitchen a bit more this year. The older two are getting fussier as they get older, and I think sometimes we don't cook anything different or over-exciting because of it. I'm so bored of our meals though, so I really want to mix it up!

What are you not looking forward to this year?

Honestly? Parker starting school in September. He only turns 4 in August, so he's going to be so little when he starts. Thankfully he knows the routine from Indie starting this year, but I just don't think I'm ready to let my baby boy go yet.

Share with us some of your inspirations. They could be bloggers/influencers, books or even just quotes.

I don't think I actually live by any inspirational quotes. I do believe that 'what will be will be' though, and I try not to live life thinking of what happened in the past.

What is your go to working music or background noise?

If I don't have Radio 1 on, then I will have a series on Netflix in the background while I'm working. I'm currently watching Gossip Girl - I hate working in silence!

Talking about positivity what is one thing you will change for positive thinking this year?

I want to think more positively about my parenting! I am a good mama, and I am doing a good job - my littles say so, so why shouldn't I think it?

Share a positive thing that happened today.

I managed to get lots of blog work done during nap time, and then enjoy some quality time with Lilah while the big two were at school / preschool!

Who do you tag?

and anyone else who would like to join in!

  1. I hope you manage to do everything you want to do. I'm currently watching gossip girl too! On the final series though so not sure what I will put on in the background once it's finished.
