She killed it with kisses & from it she fled

Are we all suitably disgusted at our alcohol and carb intake over the festive period? All hitting the gym and treading those pavements in a vain attempt to make up for the complete disregard we gave to the welfare of our livers and waistlines over the holidays?


Me too.

Christmas was once again not exactly how I had planned it would go. But fun all the same. And despite some kind of 'that'll never happen to me, what do I do, how do I deal with this' type of scenario that left me a little bit rattled and with a lot of big questions in my head, I actually managed to get through it with a smile on my face. Last Christmas I was left in a similar scenario with a bit of a bombshell dropped on Christmas Eve and spent most of it trying to hide my tears from Ava. I had expected this one to be different. A super happy affair filled with excitement and fun. It was definitely emotional. But despite the fact that I was feeling pretty sorry for myself and a bit of an emotional wreck it actually was fun in the end.

Because of the people. Family, friends and loved ones are definitely where it's at come Christmas time and as good as the presents are (and the presents were good) - I was taught a valuable lesson about what really matters in life. And was struck once again by the level of love and support that is constantly surrounding me and offered on tap whenever I need it. And it was there in abundance from all the people that mean the most to me. Offered without question but more importantly without judgement.

I literally don't know where I would be without these people.

So maybe it's the fact that I went a whole day yesterday without sugar, booze or saturated fat. Maybe it's the fact that I just ran 5k and I'm still on an endorphin induced running buzz. Or maybe it's because I've just evaluated the past twelve months and a lot of them were actually pretty good that's getting me all excited for the next twelve...

I might not be exactly where I wanted to be when I saw in the bells and made my plans for 2014. I might not have achieved everything I was planning for. But I am most definitely getting there. And I have made progress that cannot be ignored. Most importantly I have the liveliest, loveliest, chattiest, happiest little 3 year old anyone could ever wish for.

And I don't know about you lot but I'm pretty excited for 2015.

So Happy New Year.
