Oh, my days! Where did 2018 go? It’s that time of year once again where we reflect and reminisce. Looking back on 2018.
I can honestly say, 2018 wasn’t a bad year for myself and my family. I say that very carefully, touching wood, crossing fingers etc. In order not to jinx us! Because if you know me, you will know that my past hasn’t been kind.
There is always some unwanted drama that follows me. But i’m a great believer in ‘everything happens for a reason and that our experiences good and bad are here to teach and prepare us for something’.
So here is a Look Back On 2018
Rebuilding Relationships With Family
This has got to have been the highlight of our year. Matthew getting back in contact with his Daughter after 9 (long) years, as well as his sister. My boys got to meet their sister and I got to meet my gorgeous step daughter.
Launching This Mummy Rocks
In April 2018, I launched This Mummy Rocks. It has been one of the best things I have done. It has connected me with some truly amazing, inspirational and like minded people. It has opened doors of opportunity for not only myself, but my family and those people I have gave assistance to through my blog. In a short 8 months I had the opportunity to work with a number of awesome brands, reached the top 500 in the Tots100 charts and my DA got to 27! I’m more than happy with that.
Being Featured In Not 1 But 2 National Newspapers
My family and myself where given the opportunity to work with both The Daily Mail and The Sun on articles relating to larger families and families outnumbered by the opposite sex. Having photographers and make up artists come to the house for photoshoots was out of this world. Especially when one of the make up artists tells you that she’s work on Paris and London Paris week with the likes of Gigi and Bella Hadid.
Going To See Ed Sheeran With Matthew
Matthew and I don’t get much time together alone, without our boys being around. But we managed to have an epic ‘Mummy and Daddy Date Night’ to see Ed Sheeran in Newcastle.
Cohen Spending 5 Days In Hospital
Over the Summer, Cohen spent 5 days in hospital. giving us the scare of our lives! I can honestly say that I have never been so scared in all my life!
2018 The Year I Officially Had 2 Teenagers
Harvey turned 13! Honestly, it doesn’t seem like yesterday he was my little 7lb 10oz baby boy!
Cameron Turned 16
Now i’m feeling old! My eldest son turned 16 years old! Yes, 16!
2018 Is The Year I Learnt To Accept Myself
After years of hating myself, having low self esteem and confidence, blogging and vlogging has actually made me value myself and to accept myself for who I am. Now, believe me when I say that this is a massive step for me. When I am feeling brave enough, I will tell my story.
I am more than looking forward to 2019 and what it has got to offer.
I want to thank each and everyone of my readers and followers for your support over 2018.
All the best for 2019.
