I'm writing this as we are about to enter 2018. It's a time to be reflective, not say the obvious statements - "I can't believe 2017 is over" or "Is it really January again?!" It's always interesting, but sometimes tedious, to see what everybody's New Year's resolutions will be. No doubt I'll be seeing the "Going on a diet" or "Start jogging" resolutions flash up on my Facebook timeline.

Here's my reflection of this year, has 2017 been a successful year for me? In some areas, yes, in other areas? Probably not so much. But it's good to look back on the last 12 months to see what I could achieve in 2018 and what goals are easy to strive for over in the next year before I re-write this post in December 2018.

Christmas Eve

Yes, by this time tomorrow we shall be swimming in ripped wrapping paper and putting our turkey's into the oven.

I know it's felt like Winter for a while now, but today marks the official start of Winter. I'll admit it, I do love the Winter months. I think I love it more in the lead up to Christmas rather than in January when everything and everyone looks and feels miserable. There are so many good things about winter, here are a few things I adore about the colder months:
