My 5 favourite posts

Day 26: What are your 5 favourite post from your archives?

I only started blogging in March but here are my 5 favourite from my archives.

1. Why me? Why not? – This is the third post I ever wrote and I love it so much because it helped me come to terms with Baby’s DS. It is a post I will forever hold close to my heart.

2. Breastfeeding and why it was for me! – This post is full of my stories on my breastfeeding journeys with my children.

3. The Silent Morning – I love this post because I was feeling creative one morning and decided to describe and make my morning more exciting.

4. Highlights of childhood – This is the first poem I have wrote in a long time and I was really proud of myself to finally be able to complete it and I think it’s actually quite good. (I know I’m bias)

5. Fun, Games and Daisy Chains – It’s a great post I think about a stressful day that turned out quite fun and great πŸ™‚

So there you go my 5 favourite posts.

Can’t wait to read yours

What I look forward to.

I am linking up with Emma at outnumbered as part of the #BEDAoutnumbered challenge.

Day 23: What are you looking forward to?

With this question I was wondering does it mean in the near future or dies it mean out of life?

See in the near future I am excited about my kids birthdays. In less then 6 week T, E and A (my stepdaughter) are all having their birthday, but after that it is Baby’s 1st birthday πŸ™‚

I am super excited because I love the kids birthdays (even if my bank balance doesn’t)

T and Baby have to big birthdays though because T will be 10 and baby 1 πŸ™‚
It’s hard to believe I will have a 10 year old in a matter of weeks 😦 (that makes me feel old) .

Out of life I am looking forward to the day my kids are grown up and I can go off avid see all the things I ever wanted too. I look forward to the day I am told I will be a grandma (hopefully not too soon!) and I look forward to spending it all with my loving husband.

What do you look foward too?

Day 22: Share and old photo of yourself

I have got a bit behind with the challenge last could of days and I am now going to quickly catch up on myself.
Really sorry life, kids and the holidays have got in the way but today is my down time πŸ™‚

So today I have to share an old photo of myself πŸ™‚ this is funny because I don’t really have many old photos of myself. My mum has them all in her attic or stored away in back of her wardrobe in albums. But over the years I have managed to collect a few. So her we go.
I couldn’t just choose one so I thought I would share both πŸ™‚

The first one is of my mum and me. I think I am around 4 same with the second photo. We where on holiday in Tenerife and I I love how cute and sweet I looked. Specially at that point in time I was probably anything but. (I was a real handful of a child)
But there you go my photos.

What you think?
I can’t wait to read yours.

I have many different blogs I read and link up too but my 10 favourite are:

1. Life As Alice
This is the blog of Alice. She is an amazing person who is a mum of 2. She has a teenage son, who has Down syndrome also. I love reading her blog seeing her pictures and just generally see what she gets up to. (not in a stalkery way) We became friends first through a DS support site and it was through reading her blog and her advice that I was able to create mine. I have never met Alice but I hope to one day and her amazing son. Her blog gives me hope, makes me smile and let’s me know that sometimes it’s ok to cry about DS. Her blog is worth a read I promise.

2. mumturnedmom
This blog is by Sara. She is a lovely woman from Scotland who has moved over to America with her family. She run a weekly linky called #theprompt I try to join as often as I can or when the creative juices are flowing. I’m not always able to come up with anything though but she still includes me in her list every week to ask me to join. I love reading all the different ways she is creative with her prompts. Writing poems, short stories or just telling is about her life. It in a great read.

She hold some Linkys that I have joined in the past but have be absent from recently 😦 (I should really aim to finish the draft I have been typing for this linky) I live reading her post and because I know that we go through very similar things. She has helped me a lot in past too answering my nearly endless questions about blogging and adding me to groups on Facebook.

Her advice and post gave always help be through times of uncertainty.

My best moments of this year

I am linking up with Emma at outnumbered as part of the #BEDAoutnumbered challenge.

Day 20: What is the best thing to happen to you this year?

See I found this one a bit difficult as I can’t really pick my best moment of this year. I have loads at are equal as good or exciting for me.
If it was of 2013 I would easily have said the day I found out I was pregnant in January or when I got married in March or the day Baby was able to finally come home at 23 days old in October. I would of said the day she was born because it was a amazing and I was happy to have my baby but thing took a horrid turn rather quickly after birth. (You can read about it Here!)

This year I don’t have moments that as exciting or as amazing as last year but my favourites are:

Doing my first driving lesson.

Having our first family holiday, as a complete family.

Celebrating my first wedding anniversary.

Seeing all the amazing things Baby as pushed herself to do and achieve.

Starting my blog.

So there you go some of my best moments of this year πŸ™‚ but this year sing over yet πŸ™‚ we still have Baby’s first birthday to come up in next few months and a amazing Christmas where she will be able to take part instead of sleep like last year.

I can’t wait to read your best moments.
