Sinking feeling

“I really think you should come Ellie, it will do you good!”  Gabe is sat in his swimmers pulling on his tracksuit bottoms, when he’s pulled them up he pulls me towards him.    I looked at my swimming costume on the bed he’d brought for me, I normally would jump at the chance to have a swim, but today I wasn’t feeling it.

Overeaten, lack of sleep & not much writing done!

So when the Christmas break started, I had thought to myself;  “Yay…husband is home and I can get lots of writing done, add to my new blog (My name is Ellie) on a regular basis and enjoy the break!”  WRONG!!

Let’s start again shall we?  Ok so it has been an oh so lovely Christmas, kind of felt like Williams first Christmas as he was so small last year and newly home from hospital (almost after being in NICO for 8 weeks) so this year we would have gone all out but chickened out of having a full blown Christmas tree and decorations….instead we had a 2 foot tree and limited tinsel high up so he couldn’t reach!!  He is crawling for England the rate he’s going, and sometimes I have to stop myself from laughing because his knees go quicker than his hands and then…

You’re the one that I want, Giovanna Fletcher

I’m beginning to like this writer more and more, firstly she is awesome and secondly she’s super awesome!!  Ha ha, but seriously not only is she a writer after previously being a journalist but she’s also a celebrity mother to Buzz and Buddy her 2 adorable boys whom she has with husband McFly band member Tom Fletcher.  She’s got a pretty high profile life yet always comes across as down to earth and pretty laid back.

Recap, how was it for you?

So hours away from 2016, I thought I’d reminisce of what this year has meant for us (everyone, not just me!)
