holidays, so we are looking forward to a few days rest to recover from a busy
end to the term and to get ready for our family Christmas celebrations. The
highlight of the week has definitely been watching the two boys in their school
Christmas plays. Freddie was a shepherd in his traditional nativity play. He
sang his little heart out and appeared not at all phased by the hundred or so starring
parents and grandparents perched on every available surface in the classroom.
Liam was a narrator in his play “The Bossy King” which put a new twist on the
traditional nativity and he did really well. Bella even managed to make a
special guest appearance (totally uninvited!) during the carol chorus at the
end of Liam’s class’s performance. We were half mortified and half proud, as
she stood alongside them all singing her little heart out and waving to all in
and plan to snuggle up with the kids to watch Christmas movies, referee family
games, bake and eat lots of mince pies and enjoy a glass of wine or two with my
only started my blog back in April and I have been pleasantly surprised to see
how it has evolved and grown each month. I have steadily risen up the rankings in the Tots 100 index,
I was ranked at 412 out of 8,000 bloggers in the November charts and my blog
has now received over 30,000 pageviews. I am also proud to have become a regular volunteer arts and crafts contributor over at Visit from the Stork an online and print based magazine for young parents and parents-to-be. I have also had articles published in two glossy Irish parenting magzines, Easy Parenting and Maternity and Infant this year. I’m looking forward to working on further writing projects outside of my blog next year.
Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
