After a bit of a reflective day in which I have decided to get myself more organised I thought it would be fitting to take a look back on how my blog has progressed over the past year.
I started my blog mainly due to my lovely sister really. I had a lot of interest through my personal Facebook with friends asking where best to go with the children and she said it would be worth setting up a blog as people seemed interested in what we get up to.
After some time I bit the bullet and wrote my first post. The whole thing had to be set up by my sister and my son as I’m such a ‘techno phobe’ and to be honest I’m still running to them with even the simplest technical issue!
It wasn’t long before I got the bug, and to be honest I am now completely hooked – my Husband would definitely verify this.
I love everything about it. The feedback you get when you publish a post, the wonderful blogging community I have come to know and love and the wonderful opportunities it has opened up to the whole family.
It has been an outlet for me to express my feelings good or bad and have the comfort of people sharing their opinions and advice with me.
I have met some wonderful fellow bloggers along the way and be it online or in person I would now class a good number of them friends that have all helped me out along the way.
We have been to many events as a family trying out new products and getting to enjoy some fabulous days out and trips away. One of our favourites had to be Chessington World Of Adventure which we have been lucky enough to experience twice.
One of my first product reviews was with the wonderful ladies from Lara and Ollie. I thought it would be fitting to work with them again and offer all of my lovely readers the opportunity to win one of their fabulous necklaces. Please click below for your chance to win.

It does take up a huge amount of my time and the social media side of things really drags me in and it’s something that I need to rectify as it is a huge asset to my blog but also a massive time waster that I can’t seem to switch off from!
This said my hard work has paid off in many ways and I have managed to get into the top 100 in the Parent Bloggers Leaderboard and I’m currently ranking 226 in the Tots100 charts which has around 8000 blogs registered.
I hope that you will all continue reading and enjoying as much as I love writing and fingers crossed I will still be around to tell my tales next year!
