2016 Done!

The reason I started my blogging journey was to share our health journey with you. In doing so I hoped that I could help just one person. The response has been amazing.

As time has gone on, I have found that I really enjoy writing about all sorts of everything. The opportunities I have been offered have been amazing and I can only hope that 2017 brings more and that I can put my heart and soul in to everything that I write. (More so than I already have).

One thing I especially enjoy writing about is what we have been up to and our adventures, and as it happens the end of 2016 we were very busy.

As well as the stories of Decemeber I have already told (Baby No More, Our Beamish Adventure…Part Two and Wedding Anniversary), we had a few more adventures I would like to share.

Baby No More

There comes a point when you realise that your baby is no longer a baby.

When Libby turned three I was pregnant with Penny, so her leaving the baby years behind her was sad but I knew I would get to do it all again. This time however I felt decidedly different.

On the 19th of December 2013 at 9.24am I gave birth to Penelope Mary. Weighing in at 8lbs and 5 ounces she weighed in the biggest of my three children. What a blessing she was, and is still to this day. There is never a dull moment with our little Tasmanian devil.

Biscuits “To Go”

One thing we have a serious addiction for in this house is biscuits. The classics being the most loved.

The girls love their Custard Creams, I like a Hobnobs and the boys love a Chocolate Digestive.

I was recently asked to give the new McVities “To Go” range a try and of course I jumped at the chance. As with other McVities products I have tried I love the fact that these packs of two biscuits are perfect size to put in a lunch box.

McVities have a range of their well loved favourites in the “To Go” range. These are Original Digestives, Milk Chocolate Digestives, Dark Chocolate Digestives and Milk Chocolate Hobnobs.

Research suggests that there is an increasing amount of people embracing, and taking the “Grab and Go” eating habits. McVities have invested a lot of time and money in pin pointing the best way to present the product.

Each individual pack contains two biscuits and they can be bought as individual packs or in a pack of six.

These can be found in your local supermarket and retail at around £1.59.
