Feeling Christmassy and a brief update!

15135781_538085743056773_2926115988866110265_nI have definitely been off the radar since having the baby and I had slightly given up on my blog. However at this time of year I always miss my blog as it was in December 2013 when it really came into it’s own, so i thought I would update you on a few things!

  1. The baba is 9 months old!

I cannot get her to stop crawling and she’s at the stage where you turn your back for one second and she’s gone. Time to crack out the baby gates again!

2. I have a new job!

I have a full time job working for a university and I absolutely love it. I’m learning loads about sales, marketing and admin.

3. I am selling candles!

My aunt has recently started up a luxury candle business and she really is making some beautiful candles. Inspired by candles such as jo malone, white company and diptyque, they really are unique scents and have an incredible sent pay off. Head over to www.bridgeparkcandlecompany.co.uk and get some beautiful christmas candles for your loved ones!

4. I moved house!

As much as Ioved my old house, it became too small after having the baby. We have now moved somewhere a bit more rural and have lots more space! We are loving the country life so far!

Even though 2016 has felt like a crappy year, it has actually been a really eventful one for us and I am proud of what we have all achieved over the past year. Here’s to another successful year!

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

At the moment it’s really starting to get more christmassy here in Germany. Trees are going up, lights are starting to go on and an actual german market is currently being put together outside our flat so I would have to be an absolute scrooge not to feel slightly christmassy! So today we thought we’d do our first christmas activity with our baby girl and make christmas tree decorations! Might sound lovely and sweet but trust me we are scarred from the experience. Me and Harry got screamed at, slapped, had paintbrushes thrown at us and got paint splattered on us during Isla’s best efforts to become Pablo Picasso but at least we now have decorations to send out to our family members and can keep forever and remind us of that painful day when Isla became the Grinch who tried to ruin Christmas.
