Yep. We’ve had a lot of really good days recently (especially when he’s not teething). He’s 17 months old now, and is full of personality and heart.
I was also pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed the school holidays and having both of my kids home at the same time.
Also yep. Now to find out how bad by handwriting has been once I go back to page 1 in 2019.
I did really well at this till about the summer… then less good. I have started carrying around a notebook & pencil in my pocket at all times though. They get used a lot.
Fail! I only ran 41 times in 2018 (cf. 54 in 2019). Really this wasn’t lack of motivation, but an unrealistic expectation of how much free time I’d have for running. On the flip side I have pushed/carried 11kg of baby up and down the hills of Bath for most of the year. So I’m feeling pretty fit.
Fail. I think.
I was pretty good at this in the first part of the year, the last 3 months or so have been less good. Mainly the baby is heavy (and doesn’t walk yet) and we live in a townhouse (lots of stairs) up a very tall hill (plus no car). I’m pretty good at concentrating on the baby when he needs attention (i.e. whenever he is awake ), but the remainder of the time I’m physically tired, and don’t really have the mental capacity to concentrate on much. I have read a lot of (crappy/not-crappy) sci-fi though.
All in all, a really good year. I’m excited about the 2019 thread!
