In 2013 I linked up to my first Ordinary Moments. It was a linky I enjoyed joining in with and even catching up with on a weekly basis. I stuck with for a the year and heading into 2014 I was still very much consistent in joining in with it. Then life got in the way and I started to slack, and it ended up being put on the burner and I just didn’t join in. It makes me sad that I just gave up on it as it really is one of my favourite link-ups to join in with.

This year my news years resolution was to in-fact join back up. We are 8 months into the year and that resolution is well and truly broken. I completely gave up on it and it was only a few weeks ago I tweeted Katie saying how much I missed it, and that was the honest truth, I really do miss it. It was my time to pick out an ordinary moment of our week and remember it, with every thing that goes on sometimes you forget the ordinary moments, and its a post like this that makes you remember those moments that you may forget with everything going on.

Since my last Ordinary Moment so much has happened. Some great, some not so great things. I have been quite vocal on all social media about my skin cancer diagnosis and that is still on going. Still a battle and still a very scary time for me. I have blogged so much about it and its helps to get my feeling out and not clogged up in my tiny brain!

We are also so busy re-decorating our home. This is our second year in and we are slowly making it to how we want it, but we still have so much to do. Mr B is practically doing everything himself {I won’t let him do the plastering!!} We have had new windows and a full re-wire {again we got professionals in for that!} but everything else from tiling, flooring, cabinet building, bathroom renovations and the garden, Mr B has done single handedly and so far he has done an amazing job. I could not be prouder of him and he really is making our home the perfect family space.

G has finished her 3 years in infants and she has really shown so much progress and potential. She is turning into such a wonderful child. I have to admit the last few weeks have been pretty tiresome and I have struggled so much with her moods and attitude. I have cried a lot about how she talks to me, and where she even learnt half the moody stuff she says. BUT that is only snippets of the days. Mostly she is such a loving little girl. She really makes me proud and I wouldn’t change her.┬áH is a completely different child to G. He is so laid back and really nothing bothers him. He breezed through reception year and he cannot wait to return to YR 1. He dotes on his sister and when she isn’t in one of her moods she is the best big sister she can be.

My blogging has been a bit hit and miss this year, taking breaks every now and then and those breaks turning into a bit of a long hiatus, which then means I struggle to get back into it. I also worry I am rather repetitive in what I blog about but I want to be current and my skin cancer is the thing that dominates my life at the moment. Constant hospital visits and many more to come. Blogging about G and H grounds me and switches me off from all the nastiness that is going on right now. I am also testing the waters with Insta-Stories. I tried Snapchat and wasn’t a big fan but Insta-Stories seems a lot easier {I do miss the filters though!} I actually posted a video the other day, it wasn’t overly interesting but I bit the bullet and pressed the send button. Its funny, I always feel rather silly and I hate my voice on film but I can see me posting more and more often.

Its been a while but, I am so adamant that this is the start of me joining in a bit more consistently, it really has not been a wonderful Ordinary Moments post, its been rather a bit of a ramble and probably isn’t much of a read, but I needed to start somewhere and I think a catch up was the best way to go.

I am linking up with the lovely Katie at Mummy Daddy Me for her wonderful linky The Ordinary Moments

    Sounds like you have had a tough year or so and could do with a bit of luck your way. I hope the continuous appointments go okay and you are healthy and can worry a little less really soon. x #OrdinaryMoments

    It does sound like you have had a really tough year, and also busy as well with your house, so no wonder things have slipped. I can’t even imagine what you are going through, it must be so scary. I hope things improve soon. It is lovely to just capture the mundane every now and again, especially when you have such intense things going on. It is lovely to have you back of course. Will look forward to checking out some of your insta stories, I still haven’t quite got to grips with it yet, but am enjoying practicing! xx
