I love Christmas – not in a ‘I’m a hyper-active child’ kind of way, I just love the fact I can spend lots of time with my family and friends. This year, Christmas feels even more exciting because we have three children to share it with! I also love this time of year because the year comes to an end and I like looking back on the last 12 months and seeing how much has happened. This time last year, we found out we were having twins. I can’t believe we have now survived the first 6 months with them! For anyone who has twins, you will know how much you feel you have achieved. Chris and I feel like we haven’t stopped moving or feeding babies since the 16th June – the Christmas break has never been needed so much!
I’m not a big fan of new year’s resolutions, I don’t think we should wait until a Monday or the 1st January to make changes, but it always does feel like a bit of a fresh start. I’m sure 2015 will bring its challenges, but 2014 has been the most challenging year of our lives. I don’t say that to be dramatic, it’s just a statement of fact. Some people believe things are sent to test them – if that’s the case, Chris and I have passed! There are many things that could test a marriage but we both agree that now we’ve survived the first six months of having tiny twins, we can survive anything!
I’ve done lots of exciting things to celebrate New Year’s Eve, but this year we will be celebrating more than ever – even if it’s just the two of us sitting on our sofa drinking cheap cava, because that’s all we can afford – I’ve never been so relieved to survive a year!
So happy Christmas and thanks to everyone who has followed my blog this year. I’ll be thinking of everyone else who has had a challenging year this year and will be wishing everyone a happy 2015. You may have challenges ahead, but you can deal with anything you put your mind to.
