Catch Up + Monthly Goals


Firstly I would like to take a few minutes (I promise it won’t be long) to apologise for my lack of posts. I was so determined to do two posts a week but then life got in the way. I also feel like my last few posts haven’t been great and are lacking. If any of you saw my post on Instagram on Saturday night you would have got a small insight that things haven’t been great. You all see a small version of myself and probably the best, let’s face it no one wants to admit when they are struggling mentally and emotionally. But behind all these picture perfect moments I have been destroyed by life itself and people around me. I have learnt the true meaning that everything in life is a lesson learned, that there are two type of people. Some will lift you and others will throw bricks while you are down. I’ve realised instead of forgiving and forgetting I need to take those bricks and build a better stronger version of myself. For the first time in a very long time I am finally ready to let go and focus on me myself and I.

January and February seem like a bit of a blur if I’m honest and I cannot believe that March is just around the corner. (Literally) February is always a bitter sweet month, it’s the month my baby sees another year in, I still can’t believe I have a two year old. A TWO YEAR OLD! How the heck did that happen? I swear it was only a few months ago I was pushing around my beautiful iCandy staring in the carry cot at this perfect new-born.  Emotional break down over here.

(No carrycot picture on my laptop, so here she is at 6 months old!)

Please tell me I’m not the only mother who sits there and thinks where the hell has the time gone? I miss those days so much. I think it’s probably the cuddles that baby smell, Emma is at such an amazing age. Even if it includes saying the word “mummyover 1000 times a day. I feel like motherhood was the one thing I was put on this earth to do. Yes I know I am super broody, my Facebook feed is also 80% baby spammed.

We’ve also started thinking of holidays and looking at houses which I’m super excited about. I need a holiday, something I can count down the time to relax and actually enjoy this beautiful family of my own. We’re looking at moving, if my husband has it his way it’d be 150 miles away. I think the idea is slowly growing on me (shhh don’t tell him that, the vans will be packed by the end of the week!). But I also feel terrible taking Emma away from everyone and everything shes ever known.
What’s everyone doing for holidays this year??
We’re looking to go to Portugal for Christmas which I’d love to do.

Monthly Goals.

·        Start using twitter.
·        Reach 900 followers on Instagram.

What are your goals for March?

  4. Hope you're starting to feel better - definitely focus on yourself, get some you time! Saving for a holiday and a house is so exciting - I really want to start saving for a holiday but we're still doing up our house so I probably won't be any time soon!

    1. I think our home will come first too, it'll be so worth it when it's all done. But we're looking at mini breaks in the UK in case we don't go anywhere which will also be lovely! xx

  5. Don't worry about needing a break, Tania! Life can get really stressful at times and it's important to look after yourself and make sure you're on top form before pushing yourself again! Portugal for Christmas would be absolutely amazing, I'm sure you'll have an amazing time! I'll look forward to reading two posts a week from you in March!

  12. Monthly goals are a lot more manageable than New Year's Resolutions! I too aimed to post 2-3 times a week, but every now and then life gets in the way and I feel terrible for it although I tell myself I shouldn't.

  13. Dear Tania, we as human beings definitely want some break because, at times, life can be so tiring. It's very important to look after your own-self (and your loved ones) and be sure you're on top form before pushing yourself again. By the way, your little one seems so adorable. You are a motivating person and I loved reading your post too.

  14. If taking a break is needed, do it! I have just come back from taking a long nearly two month break from blogging and in all honest it has done me the world of good. There is not reason to not take a break if its needed honey! I love the idea of setting little goals! I hope you managed to reach them all beautiful.

    Loved reading this post xxx
