This Week - 06/01/2019

Vices are sometimes only virtues carried to excess!

2019 is flying by already, I can't believe we're a week into it! It has been a fairly hectic couple of weeks though - Christmas, Boxing Day party, New Year's, and Marianna turning four. People talk about the terrible twos but Marianna seems to have been saving it up. She's like that nursery rhyme:

When she was good she was good, she was very, very good. But when she was bad she was horrid!

It is amazing to hear her talk though and realise how much she knows. To watch her puzzle things out and start to make sense of the world. A picture came up on Facebook today of her in an incubator at the hospital four years ago, and it feels almost like a false memory, all the worry and the fear that we might never get to bring her home.

So, even when she's driving me up the wall, I'm still thankful for it.

Changing subject entirely, the rest of this week has been filled with getting organised for the new year. I've had a big clear out of clothes and books, and been listing lots of stuff on ebay to make some room. I really want to put my 1/12 scale Mountfield doll house together this year, so I've had to be pretty ruthless to find enough space for it. :) You can read about my other New Year's Resolutions HERE.

My plan is to blog consistently throughout 2019 and work on developing this little patch of cyber space. My rough - and cheesily entitled - weekly posting schedule is looking like this so far:

☆ Miniature Monday - dolls, scale miniatures, the building of the Mountfield...
☆ Torfaen Tuesday - local stuff for local people.
☆ Winning Wednesday - brand collabs, sponsored posts, competition wins, etc.
☆ Thrifty Thursday - money saving and making.
☆ Fandom Friday - books, films, music, TV shows, etc, etc.
☆ I-Haven't-Thought-Of-A-Catchy-Title-Yet Saturday - whatever randomness I feel like.
☆ Sunday Summary - a look back at the week that was.

Wish me luck!

Also, if you missed them, I've got two competitions running at the moment. One for a copy of the lovely kid's book, Morgan's Magic Moon, and another for a little panda money box.
