Me and Mine December 2015


Me and Mine December 2015

Oh December, what a wonderful month you have been. It’s been one of excitement, anticipation and merriment, full of precious family time, trips to see Father Christmas and Christmas holiday fun.

This month Mummy has

  • enjoyed the long two week Christmas break off work
  • loved playing around with HTML and coding redesigning her blog
  • cried watching Olly’s reaction to his presents on Christmas morning (he was so so sweet!)
  • loved spending time with family over Christmas
  • relaxed her diet over Christmas and gained weight..naughty dieter!

This month Daddy has

  • ended his career as Head of Department / Teacher in a Secondary School and will be starting his new role as a Senior University Lecturer in January
  • loved spending time with the family which was very much needed
  • going out with his friends celebrating Christmas / End of Term

This month Olly has

  • been a superstar with his potty training and has been ‘dry’ over Christmas with no accidents.
  • been spoiled with all the lovely Christmas gifts from family and friends with his most favourite toy being the Disney Cars Mack Transporter gifted from Father Christmas (wink!)
  • watched Frozen, The Polar Express and Arthur Christmas on DVD and really enjoyed them.
  • behaved really well given the late party nights seeing family and has enjoyed more than one or two lie-ins, whoop!

Shilton Family December 2015

Lots of our family photographs this month feature Olly pulling the most hilarious faces. He’s always got his tongue out or pulling his eyelids down. We’re really struggling to get serious sensible photographs with him in. Luckily this one below looks quite cute.

Me and Mine December 2015

There’s no ‘New Year New Me’ post as I do think I’m not too shabby as I am but with the new year just around the corner, Mummy’s New Years resolution is to be kinder to herself and to put herself first more often. Daddy’s New Years resolution is to ‘win more games when he goes one nil up‘ (Darts related resolution!)

We have loved taking part in Me and Mine this year. I am so glad we joined in with the project back in January 2015. You can visit all my monthly posts here and watch Olly grow in to an adorable little boy along the way.

I do hope you’ll join me next year for Me and Mine as we take part for another year. We have lots pinned on 2016 as ‘our family year’ so we hope you can join us along for the ride!

Happy New Year xx

    Aah such a lovely post!! Sounds like you’ve had such a fab festive holiday.
    I love your new look blog too! Your header reminds me of the slimming world logo, funnily enough!! You’re such a great advertisement for them Emma! I’ve been utterly rubbish over Christmas and totally gone off plan — I’m hoping that I’ll get back on it when New Years eve is out of the way — the house is currently full of cheese and Champagne!! Not conducive with trying to slim down!! Wishing you and yours a very, very happy new year! Lots of love from me and mine xxx

    Oh Emma, I love this picture. It’s so lovely :) Look how curly Olly’s hair is – so cute!! I’m very impressed with your blog – have you done it all yourself? I’m very intrigued over the whole coding and HTML stuff, but I’ve no idea where to begin with it all. I need to give my blog a complete overhaul, but I just don’t know where to start, so it’ll have to stay as it is for now :( Congrats to your hubby on his new job – Michael has also started his new job today too :) and a huuuge well done to Olly for his potty training! What a star! xxx
