My Resolutions for 2016 

Every year I write down my resolutions and every year inevitably at least half of them have failed before January is even over. Instead of vowing to go to the gym every day of the week or saying goodbye to my friend Prosecco, I have a few things I am determined to achieve in 2016    1. Spend more time with my kids  Having been working 12 hour shifts lately,...

What Christmas Looked Like for Me in 2015 

Christmas is my most favourite time of year. This year was no different and was definitely needed having worked such long hours running up to it at work…  The day started off with Carly waking me up at 6am.
