Me & Mine | January

January seems to have been the slowest month e v e r, it doesn't help that for a whole half of the month both the children and myself have been ill with chest infections, cold and flu! I am feeling better now but the children are still sniffling and coughing. We have had a few adventures this month which has been nice, we have had a action packed few weeks in-between being stuck at home unwell, its been nice to be busy and to kick start the year with adventures. My blog has also had a make over to freshen up for a new year, I hope you all like it. Although I seem to be having a few issues so hopefully they will be resolved soon. Archie has grown so much and now is crawling and pulling himself up on everything, even up the stairs! Isla started nursery this month, and in just the 3 days she has already done I cant believe the difference in her. She has adjusted amazingly and I couldn't be more proud of her, it also means Archie and I get every Wednesday to ourselves so we also get a lovely quality day together. 2016 has started off great and I hope it stays that way.
