I can’t quite believe that 2012 is over already, it seems to have flown by ridiculously quickly and if I’m honest, other than getting pregnant, I am struggling to remember what has even happened.
Which is why I’m glad I have this blog because I can now take a look back and remember the events that have happened over the last 12 months.
2012 didn’t start in a very nice way when my brother had some rather bad news on new years day – Not Such A Happy New Year.
In January I set up a second blog – The Perfect Romance Experiment – it has been completely abandoned lately but I am definitely planning to give it some love again this year. It’s where I write about relationships, mainly mine, not that it’s perfect, nor an experiment! I just find the topic interesting!
I pondered whether it was my fault that Iyla’s labour went wrong and I now know that it was. I didn’t do any preparation for it and am doing everything I can to make sure this time will be different.
In February I blogged in response to those stupid comments made by the Loose Women regarding breastfeeding – Why I Will Never Breastfeed My Baby In A Toilet.
In March I posted this video of the things me and Iyla were talking about – it has just had me in hysterics!
In April Iyla had her first tummy bug and I realised how much I love Twitter – Vomit and Twitter.
In May I blogged about growing up in Glastonbury – Round My Hometown.
Then a bit later in the month Dad2BabyInsomniac fell off his motocross bike and had to spend a week in hospital after completely shattering a bone in his ankle – Broken.
In June following the stress of Dad2BabyInsomniac’s accident I had a bit of a freak out about death – Freaking Out.
In July I went to a breastfeeding protest in Bristol after a mum was asked to sit in the corner of a cafe for breastfeeding her baby. The turn out was amazing and it was such a great experience – Why You Should Never Ask To Put Baby In A Corner.
I also turned 28 – 28 Years of ME.
And after six weeks of rain we finally had some Sun – Summer Has Arrived.
In August I made a little announcement!
We had fun in the sun…
and met the Zingzillas!
In September the only thing I could write about was my toilet.
And we also met Upsy Daisy…
In October we went on Holiday!
In November Iyla turned 2 – To My Little Girl On Your 2nd Birthday.
And her talking led to her telling Dad2BabyInsomniac to Stand On His Knees and Eat His Bloody Cake!
And most recently I blogged about LOVE!
2012 has been a stressful year due to Dad2BabyInsomniac spending a lot of it with his leg in plaster but luckily it has ended in a good way with it having healed better than expected and with a baby boy on the way.
Tonight we are going to eat banoffee pie and creamy pasta before starting to be more healthy in the new year!
Here’s to 2013!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
