And so 2015 is drawing to a close, I wanted to look back at my favourite moments in pictures. From the start of the year as a family of three, closing as a family of four. Without further ado here is 2015 My Year in Pictures.
Spending my birthday on the beach here in Dubai. Watching my boys walking in the waves. Shortly after I took this picture the Big One fell down and soaked himself.
After a bit of a blood pressure scare, the Husband sent me away, no Big One, no stress, just a night to sleep, sunbathe, relax and read!
The Husband ran a marathon, his goal was to run in under four hours. This was the picture that he sent me when he finished. The Boy did good.
The Big One meeting the Baby in hospital, after his rather dramatic birth.
Our first family photo shoot thanks to the incredibly talented Sophia Mattia.
The month that my HuffPost version of 11 Types of Mum You Meet at Baby Group went a little bit crazy. My heady heights of blog fame! The month that led me to buying my own domain, transferring to WordPress and deciding that maybe, just maybe, I could do this blog malarkey.
July saw us spend most of the month back in the UK to escape the summer heat of Dubai, to hit the heatwave in the UK. Ironic. It also saw me get to share one of my passions with the Big One, the theatre. Thanks to the lovely Elaine of Entertaining Elliot I was able to get some amazing tickets to see the Gruffalo in the West End.
A cheeky little holiday to picturesque Thailand.
Another trip back to the UK to watch my little brother get married, getting ready having two small children in tow was a challenge, but I think we scrubbed up well.
November saw a new found love of Instagram develop and with it, a new found enthusiasm for taking photos. This is still one of my favourites of the Big One, learning to blow bubbles, amusing the Baby as he looks on, and the jumping for joy chasing each bubble he was able to blow was adorable.
What a year 2015 was.
All I can say is Happy New Year, bring on 2016.
