Anyway, I thought I'd do a quick round-up of what that Glasgow Mummy household got up to this year...
I made my first big purchase for the new house, a new sofa. A purple one no less from M&S.
I celebrated my 32nd birthday too, and on the same day I registered my son for school!
We also enjoyed a family day out in Falkirk.
And I was crowned Glasgow Blogs Blogger of the Month :-)
More progress was made in the house, this time the dining/play room.
We went to see The Lego Movie, and I starting dipping my toe in the YouTube waters!
I went on a solo business trip to Stockholm. I hadn't been on a plane for four years, so this trip was a bit daunting!
I secured sponsorship with Glasgow Fort for the year.
I had my driveway monoblocked. What a difference that has made! It really was such a good investment and I'm so glad I got it done.
We had a gin tasting experience in Aberdeen at The Tippling House.
I had a Crohn's flare-up and had to start taking steroids (boo!). My first flare-up since being diagnosed 10 years ago.
Saw the littlest turn 3!
It was also R's birthday and we enjoyed a luxury spa break at Blythswood Square Hotel.
I discovered I was shortlisted for the BiBs (I didn't win, but to be shortlisted was amazing!).
I took the kids to Storybook Glen, Aberdeen - so many childhood memories of my own were had here.
More progress again with the house, this month I painted the whole hallway, by myself I might add!!
I was chosen to be a Morrison's Mum and had great fun hosting a Bank Holiday BBQ.
We had a belated birthday celebration for the littlest and R at Frankie & Benny's at Glasgow Fort.
I ticked off an important item off my 35 at 35 list - be genuinely happy. This was a biggie for me, and since then I've had my blips but I do still feel much happier than I was.
I tried to get my butt into gear with a fitness and healthy eating plan. Emphasis is on the word tried!
We met Myleene Klass!
Another biggie on the 35 at 35 list, this time I checked off 'fall in love again'.
I went to London for BritMumsLive.
My son was gifted a bicycle from Dale's Cycles and he's been making great progress. He still has stabilisers, so that's on the to-do-list for 2015 - get the stabilisers off!
I was also getting handy in the garden and we planted lots of lettuce from Rocket Gardens.
I was selected to be one of the 14 bloggers for the 2014 Commonwealth Games #Team14
We went on a summer holiday to Aberdeen.
We filmed one of my more amusing vlogs - this one features a flying cat!
R & I celebrated being together for a whole year!
We participated in a lawn bowling session with #Team14.
I had a colonoscopy :-/
My banana antics won me tickets for the athletics at the Commonwealth Games. Thank you Virgin Media - that was an amazing experience!
We stayed in a log pod. This was a fantastic wee break and I'd definitely like to do something similar in 2015.
My son turned 5 this month, and his birthday marked his first day of school too!
We tried GoApe in Aberdeenshire.
I won a designer handbag - thank you very much ThankFifi and Maxwell Scott Bags :-)
I met the two of Three Sisters Bake at Foodies Festival in Edinburgh.
I won another designer handbag, this time from Jaeger. I'm a very lucky lady!
We went to my cousin's wedding in Aboyne.
I handed in my notice with my current employer after securing a part-time position with another company in Glasgow.
R & I had the best steak ever at Ballathie House Hotel.
We went to The Tippling House in Aberdeen again, this time for a Red Wine Tasting session.
We purchased two kittens to join the household...Rhubarb and Crumble.
On our October trip to Aberdeen my son took a horrific tumble and ended up in A&E. This was a huge fright and a very scary experience. Not one I want to repeat!
I attended the Awards Ceremony of RBS - Finding Scotland's Real Heroes.
We went to the Enchanted Forest. It was utterly amazing. I loved it. Do check out my vlog here if you haven't heard of it.
R dyed my hair brunette!
We went to Mull for a long weekend.
I started sessions with a new personal trainer. I was struggling to motivate myself, and so decided it would be money well spent to get someone just to give me the kick I needed.
I was floored with a cold for over a week :-/
and then R whisked me away to Spain for the weekend!
We went to see Santa Claus. A must-do family trip for December!
Wow - it's been quite a year!
Let's hope 2015 is even better...
