Currently January 2016

Happy New Year! With this fresh start comes my vow to blog more often in 2016 :) Resolution 1 has at least started off well! To celebrate the new month & year I'm linking up with Farley over at Oh Boy Fourth Grade to share the currently love.


We have had a HOT start to Summer here and the air conditioner has been our saviour! I love the heat though so no real complaints. My hubs, not so much.

We both really, really needed the break at the end of the last year. It's been so nice to be home and to chill. Plus it's week 2 of our school Summer holidays so I am just enjoying life!

2015 was not the worst year ever but it was certainly not a great one either but after everything that has happened (or not happened as has been the case) I know I am just so lucky to have this amazing life. And no matter what it IS amazing. My husband and I are both well, I have the best hubs anyone could ask for, we have our house, great friends and a pretty lovely little life. Us and our cat, it's enough even sometimes when we are struggling we ARE lucky.

Last year was super stressful in a lot of ways but it's time to let the personal stuff go & sort it's self out and get back on the blog wagon.

To just chill for a bit before I start organising work stuff. Shopping is a must as I've lost a bit of weight (yay, that's my brag for the post) but I really am not looking forward to buying new work clothes. Ba-humbug. 

One Word....
HOPE! The universe has a plan for us, we just have to keep putting in the work and following the different paths that we come across and I know it'll work out! Sorry if this post sounds a bit cryptic if you're just visiting, read some of the background here if you are utterly confused :) I might post the latest updates & decision making at some point but for now we are just trying to sort things out.

Thanks for stopping by & THANK YOU to those gorgeous, over 2000 ppl who are following me on FB. You are legends!

  1. Your post resonated with me. One of my closest friends and her husband is walking a similar path in her life, and her word is also HOPE. I hope that you are encouraged this year with MUCH hope, and are able to get some nice summer relaxation in. Happy New Year!
    P.S. Great last name!!

  2. My story . . . much like yours. (I read the background post.) We made tough decisions and it just so happened to work out for us. And there were MANY trying times . . . times when I had no regrets because sometimes people need to think before they speak. Hope is a strong word filled with possibilities. Happy New Year!

    1. Thanks for sharing some of your story Charlotte! Happy New Year to you too

  3. I just left you another comment on your february post. I hope this year is full of fun and good surprises.

  4. I've spent some time over the last couple of weeks grateful for the AC, and then today it's downright chilly...that's a south Mississippi winter for you! Your grateful heart and your determination to hope are encouraging. I'm thankful your post was on my Currently list...I needed to hear what you had to say. Happy New Year!

    1. Thanks for stopping by Tracy! Hopefully one day I'll get to the US for a winter & get to experience all the weather changes per state. Crazy that you have the AC on in 'winter' :)

  5. Hi Bec,
    I often think about you and how everything is going. I agree that sometimes the most important thing to do is sit back and appreciate the wonderful things about life... and pray that the others will fall into place when the time is right. :)


    1. Thanks Lauren! One of these days we need to meet up in real life :)
