“You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.” ― Mae West

Life, it's a funny old thing! It twists and it turns and throws up all sorts of things! Here we are at the beginning of January, myself and the OH have been looking forward at the year to come and are feeling a bit over whelmed with what's in store, so much to do and achieve but very excited at the prospect at how life will change!

Arguably one of our biggest challenges is going to be apply for visas to go and start a new life in Canada, the thought of this both feels me with joy and dread at the same time - joy because its finally here, we have enough money in the bank to actually start this journey and get a step closer to our dream and dread because I then think about all the scary things that come with trying to move a young family to another country and all though there may be some who think we are utterly bonkers for trying to do this and there is no guarantees s will get approved, both me and the OH agree that you do only live once and if we didn't try and make our dreams come true we would look back and regret it!

Just a quick update on #January Joy - Well I have completely abstained from alcohol for now. I'm sticking to my resolution of less sugar and more fruit and have planned a date night for February!

  2. An exciting year for you guys, I hope it all goes well for you. I wouldn't say I have a dream for 2013 but I have promised myself that I will try to relax during this pregnancy and try to enjoy it a little more than I did the first time around
