As far as I am concerned 2015 is going to be mine and Spencer's best year EVER. With becoming first time parents we have a lot to look forward to. I thought it would be a nice idea to do a round up of all of the things that I am looking forward to this coming year.
21 Feb - Baby is due. I cannot wait to meet my little boy or girl, I also cannot wait to find out if my baby is a boy or a girl! Our lives will never be the same again from the moment that baby is born, they will completely change, for the better of course.
22 Feb - Spencer's Birthday. We don't have any exciting plans for his birthday with it being so close to the due date. I've given him money to buy a new graphics card, not very exciting but it is what he wants. I've also bought him a card from the bump and a completely personalised cake from Baker Days off me & bump which I will be showing on here after his birthday.
27 Feb - Gracie's Birthday. My little niece will be six this year, they aren't having a party this year just a small tea party in the house on 28 Feb, hopefully I will be able to attend but it does depend on when baby decides to make an appearance and how I am. I've bought her present already just in case.
14 Mar - Olly's Birthday. My little nephew will be three this year. Again, Olly isn't having a party this year but will be having a tea party at some point. I'm pretty sure I will be able to attend this along with baby. Last year they had a joint Barney & Mermaid themed party which I really enjoyed helping out with, you can read my post about that here.
20 Apr - My 30th Birthday. I'm not entirely sure what my birthday will bring this year. I did initially plan to have a party, it was going to be a festival theme with wellies holding sunflowers and empty spirit bottles on each table holding my favourite Gerbera Daisies. That is now completely out of the window as a) I don't know how I'll be feeling just two months after having baby and b) I'll be breastfeeding so won't be able to have a drink! I'm hoping that Spencer has some exciting alternative plan up his sleeve.
27 Apr - Our first family holiday! We are going to Bluestone Wales* for the week. Spencer, myself, baby, my sister, her partner and their two children. I cannot wait. Baby is booked in for a Sensory class which I'm hoping will be good. My niece and nephew are absolutely going to love it there, there are so many fun things for children of their ages to do there.
20 Sept - Wales v Uruguay rugby world cup. Spencer bought tickets for this, as much as I love rugby I'm not a fan of attending the matches with him because we always end up arguing. I have told him that I will go if he agrees to dress up as a sheep with me. I am secretly looking forward to it.
31 Oct - Lake District Holiday*. Spencer, me, baby and Spencer's parents are going to be enjoying a weekend in the Lake Districts staying at the gorgeous Hart Heard Barn courtesy of Lake Lovers. The cottage and the area look stunning. I'm sure it will be quite cold at that time of the year but there is a nice open fire to keep us warm.
25 Dec - Our first family Christmas!
As well as all of this I am looking forward to plenty of baby cwtches and a year off work to spend with baby, going for walks along the canal and play dates with friends and their children.
Have you got many exciting plans for the coming year?
