A couple of weeks ago I turned 26. My first birthday as a Mama. It was lovely. And I was well and truly spoilt; candles for days, lots of A/W themed goodies to keep me warm and cosy, flowers, chocolates, underwear - the lot. I didn't want to do a whole "what I got for my birthday post" but I wanted to address being a whole year older in some way, so it got me thinking about the things I'd like to achieve before I reach 27 (eeek!)
1. Travel with Ada.Kane and I haven't been on too many holidays, but I can't wait to travel with Ada. Every time we go somewhere near, she always seems to take everything in with such wonder in those little eyes; I can't wait for my first experience of going away as a family.
2. Blog at least once a week.I go through stages of being SO inspired with my blog that I feel like posting every day, to going 2-3 weeks without posting at all. I know it's normal to experience that every once in a while, but I'd like to be a bit more organized so when I do have those times when I've got no idea what to post about, I've got a few posts as back-up so there's always new content coming in.
3. Build up some savings.This is fairly obvious. I used to always have a bit of money in savings, but after a couple years of suffering being ill throughout pregnancy and then having a baby, this has dwindled away.
4. Have a huge clear-out.
I don't feel like I have an excess of stuff, but I also have a lot of rubbish. I have a couple of sheds filled with crap, as well as kitchen cupboards and drawers that stuff just gets thrown into when it doesn't have it's own home. I need to spend a couple days doing tip and charity shop runs and have a really good clearout.
