New Year…Same me?

So its 2018…Is it just me or did 2017 go by so fast?!
As always I completely took full advantage of pretending not to acknowledge its a new year* and create only one tiny resolution.
Honestly, i feel like making such a huge list of resolutions would be pointless for me, because I know all i’m setting myself up for then is spending the year anxious about the fact I am not achieving said silly resolutions, and wondering why i did this to myself, and who wants to witness that now?!
So instead I’ve set myself the simple goal ‘Keep Going!’
Now I’m aware this sounds completely generic and I bet there are 5000 quotes out there on many a fridge magnet that can tell me how to keep going and live like there’s no tomorrow love like…. BLAH BLAH BLAH , but I think the motivation I’m looking for isn’t one which hallmark can script.
In a way it’s a kind of acceptance with myself, to know whatever I choose so long as it keeps me smiling is the right choice. To keep in mind the obstacles i have overcome when challenged with new ones, and to remember that staying still isn’t failure, but to push through when i’m ready, Keep Going and try to avoid stepping/falling back as much as possible.

So if there is anyone else out there like myself, who doesn’t necessarily like making lists and lists of resolutions. Why don’t you join me in my goal to ‘Keep Going’

Let me know if you want to Keep Going and let’s become Motivation Buddies!

Christmas round-up!

So it’s December the 31st. The Christmas season is well and TRUELY over and tonight we will all be drinking champagne and pretending to know the worlds to auld lang syne.

I for one, have loved this December. I mean, yes granted it wasn’t a white Christmas but who cares, Christmas is the time to be jolly and I embraced that.

Throughout December I find that more people want to socialise, tis the season to be merry after all….and merry I was! After work drinks and meals with friends were in full bloom this season and I ate more than I can even begin to explain to you all! Just check out this feast we had at the Bloggers Christmas Burger event

I believe the next day my waistline did challenge old Santa Clause’s himself.

Another highlight of the season was works secret Santa! Spoiler alert…I LOVE GIVING GIFTS! I’m the kind of person that guaranteed will make it crafty and as personal based as possible. I just love it!

There’s nothing better than a bucket full of sangria to really get you into the holiday spirit!

As Christmas Day started to get closer and closer I was so excited to be going home for the holidays! I have quite a big, separated family so getting to spend time with them all, really is time that I treasure and over the holiday season I like nothing more than being back up home in Yorkshire.

This year I received some wonderful gifts from both Family and friends so here is a little peek at some of the beautiful items I received this year (don’t worry I won’t show you every single thing I was gifted 🙈 )

 First up…..

From books, to beauty, to chocolate, to clothes…I really did get some beautiful gifts this year! If you want to see more of my presents let me know and I may put together a Xmas present post 🙈

Finally, here are some of my beautiful family members I spent Xmas with. I miss you guys already but I’ll be back soon for more singing around the house 😊

I cannot wait to see what 2016 is going to bring! Right I better go make some resolutions for me to not stick to!

Happy new year everyone!
