Friday was Ella's 5th birthday. We'd got her a scooter, and whilst she was at school, i actually baked her a cake; she wanted a princess cake but in the end, said mine was better than a princess cake.
My mother in law is moving to a hospice for care now so there will be more lows to come.

In the front are a selection of most used stickers. Then there is a section for bits and pieces including a year pull out for my shifts at work, and a zip up for postal stamps. There's a financial section as a half baked effort to control my spending, a monthly view and my week on two pages.
Check out the other PGC ladies;

Yesterday, as it was a TD day and other Half's birthday, we went to London.
We went to lunch at TGIs, went to the Lego shop, m&m world, walked to Buckingham palace, all on top of the first trip on the Underground for our girls. We got home, had some cake then it was late bedtime for all.

I'm trying to be very strict with myself with regards to buying stationery. I have a lot of stickers, and am trying not to get dragged in by etsy store sales. But I've had my eye on these for a while so allowed myself a small purchase. These four kits are from The Plump Planner. Karen is only open briefly from 7pm UK time on a Friday, so I always feel like I'm panic buying, but I love the kits. They're great value and I don't feel overwhelmed with lots of stickers I won't use.

I don't have many books I like to come back to time and again, so the ones I do like get reread a lot.

Early, very early, on Sunday morning I got back from a mini break to Gdansk in Poland. It was a beautiful place, totally decimated in the second world war and rebuilt as it was originally.
We timed our visit after days of snow and before days of severe fog!
Everything was cheap there. A meal out with drinks was around £8. Gdansk is well known for amber and this is also reasonably priced and in so many colours!
We climbed to the top of st Mary's Basilica (400 steps!), got a train to the coast where my crazy cousins paddled! And we walked and walked and ate and walked and ate some more. It's was fab.

Hello and welcome to 2017! What will it become? What will happen? Will I become rich? Doubtful. Will we travel around the world? Probably not.
Realistically, we want this to be the year of Getting it Done. Our house is still for sale so hopefully that will happen in the first few months of this year, I intend on using overtime to clear debts, and I want us to write a list of things to do and to actually DO them.
So far I have done a good deed by buying a homeless man a hot drink, and littlest daughter has possibly got chickenpox. It's either that or a nasty viral rash. Either way,she isn't happy .
