Keep Up With The Jones Family


Before I was a parent, I had time to myself.  Quite honestly, since my boys arrived, taking care of myself has become a permanent backseat priority.  I used to have nice hair, make up and nails - and now I have a ponytail or plait, I'm fresh faced and my nails are bare.  I'm a boy-mom - and although my boys tell me I'm beautiful all of the time [they really do, they're very charming] sometimes it's hard to feel that way without a little pretty in my life.

Santa Stop [ASDA Wooden Cafe/Shop Review]

When I was little, Father Christmas clearly was lied to thought I was a well behaved child because each year he left me presents.  In my bedroom he would leave a pillowcase stuffed with gifts and then downstairs he would leave the "big" present.  Every year it was the same - it was always the one thing I really, truly hoped for and hadn't found in the sack he left at the foot of my bed.

Wordless Wednesday...

It's a terrible photo, but it's the only one I have.  My little camel in his first nativity. So truly proud.

A New Year's Resolution I Can Keep! [Cardnest Review]

I love New Year's Resolutions.  I look forward to the end of the year when I can refocus and try and improve myself in the year ahead.  And unlike the lose weight/stop spending/find time for me resolutions which I promise myself will happen every year in some tenuous manner, I do also think of ways I can genuinely change my life for the better.
