Our Highlights From 2014

There are just 4 hours left of 2014. Its been such a busy year for so many reasons. So many happy days and memories create, but there were a few lows (as with any year) but over all, it was just splendid.

I’ve decided to share with you just some of my favourite moments from the year. Just a few snap shots from such a huge collection of great moments.

Olive celebrated 365 days on earth!

Happy Birthday Little O! We had a lovely party at home With some friends.


And Willow Turned 2!

Yet another party at home! More cake to bake and more friends to party with!


And then there were 5!

As Willow turned 2 and Olive turned 1, we discovered that another small Newhouse was in the waterworks.


To Clacton!

We took our very first family holiday to St. Osyths In Clacton. 5 days of beautiful weather, beautiful surroundings and beautiful people- we met up with some other Newhouse’s who were also staying on the same site.

A Newhouse for the Newhouse’s!

We moved….. again! This time though, it was to our permanent home. We still have lots to decorate and fix but it feels warm and inviting. We love it here!


Hey Kitties!

Then these two beauties came along. Meet Boo and Poppy!



Lollibop Festival!

A fab festival for kids set in the wonderful grounds of Hatfield house. Cbeebies presenters, Live shows (Chris and Pui were our fave), Meet and Greets and soooo many activities I nearly burst. Oops, I mean the kids nearly burst! 😉


Wedding Anniversary!

Me and Jay packed our bags and set off for the North Yorkshire Moors for the night to celebrate our second year of marriage. A stunning hotel, wonderful food and the poshest bathroom we had ever seen. Fancy stuff!


The Savoy!

We (Well, me & Jay… no kids allowed!) went all fancy for an evening dinner at the world famous London Savoy. It was nice. Like, really bloody nice.



Showing Off The Prams!

I became a teeny bit obsessed with old prams. It started when we started putting Olive into the Silver Cross that was Jays when he was a baby, Sally dug it out of the loft and I spent many hours polishing it. Then we bought another and another and then another… Here is my favourite. Our Royale. My pride and joy.



I wasn’t so happy that it started at 4:15 AM in our house this year, but it was amazing and I nailed Christmas dinner for 8 people. Win. Oh, and an epic Christmas cake. But I definitely ate too much cheese. #noregrets



And every family outing, wedding celebration, Birthday party, brand collaboration, review and cuddle on the sofa…

The list could go on and on and on. But I will stop here, and wish you all a very –

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!! See you in 2015 (It’s just a few hours away now) and lets see what the next 365 days have in store for us.
