So I haven't blogged for a few weeks, infact I didn't realise just how long it had been until I looked yesterday! I guess the blogging community can be a little daunting, don't get me wrong everyone I have spoken to has been lovely and I really enjoy reading other people's blogs but I never really realised how much of a techno-phobe I was and feel a tad out of my depth, there is a lot I don't know or understand, simple things really like adding a 'button' to my blog, getting the layout just right, linking up with other blogs etc however I am sure over time I will get the hang of it. I really want my blog to work, not just for others but for myself as I want it to be somewhere I can store memories and look back on months / years to come.
So what have I been upto while away from the computer? Well I think the biggest and probably the most obvious thing is Christmas - It was such a wonderful time, not only the build up but also the day itself. On Christmas Eve we had our 'cosy box' this is something that I started doing once we had our daughter and would love for it to become a family tradition. Basically the box is filled with treats and also 'essentials' in order for us to prepare for Santa's arrival and includes such things as a plate and mug, carrots, mince pies, reindeer food, magic santa key, plus lots more!
Then came the new year, my husband and I went to a friends house where they had a BBQ, sounds like complete madness but it was actually a lovely night, rounded off by sending lanterns up into the sky. So far in 2013 my little family has begun a financial overall, we are trying to live the life of thrift and go by the moto of do we need this or do we want it? So far we seem to be managing and have made signifanct cutbacks and savings but I won't bore you with that just now... Also it was our second wedding anniversary, I have to say that 2 years seems to have flown by! and then more recently we have had the snow dayyyys! Our little troublemaker absolutley loved the snow and every morning checked the window and would then say 'coat, boots, walk'
I think that pretty much brings us up to speed, so for now I will leave you with our little Snowman Stan :)
