Birthdays And Blogging

Wow, time is quite literally flying at the moment. I don't feel as though I have had a second to do anything. Christmas is rapidly approaching and if I don't get myself sorted this coming week, I am going to have to cancel it! Thank the Lord for Amazon Prime.

If you follow my instagram you will see that I have been baking cakes galore. Little man turned 5. Yes that's right 5! How did that happen. It seems like yesterday that he was born. Now he is a (usually) cute 5 year old. Innocent and inquisitive. He skips when he is happy and is currently singing Christmas Carols at every opportunity so that he can annoy middle man. He had his first proper party this year too. In the past we have celebrated with my "baby friends." This year, there was no getting away from the fact that he wanted his own party. I was concerned that he wouldn't know anyone to invite, however, he has fitted into school life and made so many friends. The problem was who not to invite, due to number restrictions!

Five days later and big man turned 9. The last year of single figures. All he is really interested in is Match Attax. I suppose I have to be grateful that they don't take up too much space. He is still my little scientist, and puts me to shame, with his rendition of the periodic table song. I can only get to sodium and then I struggle!

Middle man is middle man and is still planning world domination. Or for this weekend something Pokemon related instead. To be honest, I don't even understand what he is talking about half the time now. He has made the most amusing Christmas cards this year. I think that if Santa is found eating mince pies semi naked by a fireplace then, he would face the police and no more present giving. Let's hope no one wakes up to Father Christmas like this on Christmas Eve!

My ideas of getting organised have fallen into a deep dark abyss. If one more person asks me "what are you doing with all your free time" I may throttle them. In addition to attempting to make it to the gym 3 times a week and sorting out the boys at various sporting events and after school clubs, I have obviously been getting ready for the above mentioned Birthdays. I have also had some fantastic blogging conferences which just make me even more excited about blogging. I enjoyed a festive feast at River Cottage and have decided that this blog will now be primarily food focused. Improving my photography is my number one priority. For days out posts there is A Strong Coffee To Go and after 2 years of saying I will start vlogging, now I really am going to. Whether anyone watches is another matter, but I have been playing around with imovie and love learning new skills. So in answer to everyone I seem to meet. I don't have any free time.

So that's a little update from me. I have some lovely Christmas recipes on the way. Oh and did I mention I met Hugh?
