Happy New Year! Let's hope there's no drama.

Yes it's me!  I'm here.  Really.

I know it's been an age.  Over a month of travelling and then arriving back just before Christmas and then doing Christmas & New Year hasn't left a lot of time for blogging.  Or even the inclination to blog.

And now it's 2018!  So the rot stops here.  And hopefully by joining in with the Just Jot it January (#jusjojan) challenge I might not only get my mojo back but keep it going.

You can check out the challenge here on Linda's blog.  The prompt for today is DRAMA

Well there was plenty of that around the world in 2017 but fortunately not too much in my life.  Of course some of the scenery on our Australia trip was pretty dramatic and I will blog about that.  Promise!  Of course it seems a long time ago now.  But the best bit of that trip was that our Grandson Nathan (and his Mummies) came with us!  (Really we tagged along with them but who cares when it meant hubby and I finally did some serious travelling.)

Nathan's arrival was the main drama in our lives this year, arriving early as he did and giving us lots to worry about initially but this is how he looks now:

He's actually 9 months but his corrected age is 6+ months due to his prematurity and he is solid!  But adorable.  Spending so much time with him was lovely even if he doesn't like to sleep much.

I've been catching up on blogs today.  Hopefully I've left most of my readers a comment or two or at least a like.  Apologies to anyone I've missed.  Some of you have had drama in your lives in 2017.  I hope that 2018 will be a better year for us all.

It's definitely an exciting year for us as we have not one but two more Grandchildren on the way!  Hopefully the only drama associated with that will be if they arrive too close together and I have to work out how to be in two places (London and Nottingham) at the same time.  They are both due in June with only 8 days between their due dates!  I don't want to be making any dramatic dashes up and down the M1 so that I can visit both on the day they arrive.

Ok I'm done for today.  I need to organise my photos from Australia so that I can post about the trip.  I'll be back!


  1. WOW! Congratulations on 2 future grands. My granddaughters are 3 months apart in age and they will turn 18 this year. Your Nathan has really grown. Happy 2018!
