Looking back at 2014

Well its the last day of 2014 so I thought I would look back at the past year and remember all the great times we had. There has been highs and lows, ups and downs but I'm gonna focus on all the positives and start the new year on a high.
Well firstly 2014 was the year I started my blog. I am not quite sure how I came up with the idea to start a blog but I'm glad I did. I didn't have a clue what I was doing but I have been learning as I go along, met some great friends and it has allowed us to do some amazing things. I know I have been quiet over Christmas but blogging is very time consuming so I spent much needed family time.
In March little J turned one - he has developed so much over the last year and I am so proud him. He is walking and almost talking which is so much more than what I expected at the beginning of the year. He understands everything we are saying and he is communicating with us in his own little way, just waiting for the talking now and I know he will pass his next development assessment.
Big J settled in to senior school so well and is continuing to work hard and its showing in his reports. He recently received an award for being a good citizen and a valued member of year 8 - proud mummy moment. He is so good with little J and even though there is a large age gap it doesn't show and they are such great friends.
We have had lots of fun family time this year, here are some of our highlights.
Daddy and big J had the chance to try out Treetop Junior at Go Ape in Delamere Forest. They had so much fun. It was quite high so me and little J watched from the ground.

We had such a lovely day at the East Lancashire Railway with a  day out with Thomas. 

Seeing McBusted in concert was one of my favourite moments of 2014. I have always been a fan of Mcfly and Busted so to see them both on stage as a super group was so exciting. Looking forward to the 2015 tour.

We all loved the Lollipop Festival and it was such a honour to be there as an official mummy ambassador. Really looking forward to visiting again next year.

If you haven't been to the Harry Potter Studio Tour I would highly recommend it. It is an amazing day out and I would return tomorrow if I could. There is just so much to see and its a must for any Harry Potter fan.

Last but not least is Disneyland Paris. Its our favourite place and we look forward to our annual visit all year round. We always have an amazing time together and for us it is the start of christmas. 

I really hope 2015 is as special as the last year and I can't wait to share all our family times with you all.


  1. McBusted were amazing weren't they. I've been following them since the start! I even have a McFly tattoo on my arm! I'm absolutely gutted that I won't be able to make it to the 2015 (money - booo!) but I'm so glad I've had the opportunity to see them already! Although, I've yet to miss a tour (other than when I've been pregnant!) so you never know, miracles may happen? haha.

    I'm yet to go to the Harry Potter Studio tour but it's definitely on my to do list! Looks like you've had great fun. All the best for 2015 :)

  2. I'm dying to go to the Harry Potter studio! Looked amazing :)

  3. My gosh - you had a fun packed 2014. Here is to more in 2015.

  4. Enjoy your time with your family. Happy memories of their young years will tide you over for the approaching teens. Even that is better than when they leave you for good to set out on their own life in the big wide world.

  5. I've been to go ape - i was absolutely terrified at first but it was incredible! glad you had a wonderful year! x

  6. looks like a fun filled year, all the best for 2015!

  7. Oh wow, you had a great year! I also wrote a 2014 look back in case you want to check is http://myunsettlinglife.blogspot.com.br/2015/01/review-of-2014.html

    I want to wish you and your family a very awesome 2015!

  8. You look like you had a fab year m'dear!

    I guess blogs are also like diaries with pictures, you can look back on it and remember all the good times!

    I've always wanted to go to GO APE!

    I wish nothing but happiness for you and your family for this year and beyond!
