Welcome 2014!

So much stuff happened in 2013. Some horrendous - the worst I've ever experienced, some pretty amazing.

Hey, I'm alive and growing another life within me too... I can't argue with the fact that some good came out of 2013.

All I wish for in 2014, is that I'm still alive and that life currently within me, is living happily and independently, alongside my little man Carson!

Along the way, I'm going to try and make the most of it for myself too!

Having a baby is expensive and I intend on being frugal. I bought a lot of unnecessary things for Carson when I was expecting him, things that just didn't need to be bought! This will not happen in 2014, but if I win it though... I am deffo chuffed haha :-)

1. As I mentioned here in this post, I'm going to try and save £2 per day, Mon-Fri, (£10 a week) for the next 6 months at least. I'll do a write up of how much money I've managed to save each week if possible. Fancy doing a linky? >> Let me know! Never done a linky before, don't really know how to if I'm honest so, honestly, please comment with your thoughts!!

2. Anything I win will be kept aside towards Christmas 2014, be it vouchers to help with the food shopping, or items that can be used as gifts, every little helps!! Oh, apart from baby things, they will obviously be gratefully accepted and utilised on his impending arrival - not long to go now.

3. Try not to moan every day. Ok, Ok this sounds a little ridiculous but if I genuinely reflect on last year I realise that I don't deserve to moan nonsensically every single day.
There are people out there with much more awful things going on than me, so why I think moaning about people not binning the bog roll tubes is worthy of a tweet is beyond me... BE MORE POSITIVE!

So, when I wish you this - I mean it truly - HAPPY NEW YEAR xxx


  1. Being more of a positive person is a great goal and will make you feel so much happier too x #ShareItSundays

  5. Good luck with your resolutions! I agree its SO easy to spend unnecessary money on little ones! I've just had my third and I'm afraid she's going to be wearing a lot of hand me downs ;)
