Things from 2017 that I am proud of!

Some times we can be afraid to openly say that we are proud of ourselves. There seems to be a slight taboo surrounding it.  But why? For me focusing on all the great things I have achieved, just makes me even more determined and motivated to continue.  As we are now in 2018, I thought I would write down the things from 2017 that I am proud of.

I feel like I have 2 huge achievements from 2017.

First one has got to be the birth of Cleo, I was not prepared for the type of experience I had or the challenges I would face. I had a hard time recovering and getting over all the horrible feelings I had about my emergency  C-section ( I will link my blog post all about it down below). Nearly 6 months later and I feel like I have come so far and I feel so much better about myself and the situation.

Second one is winning the Mencap Journalism Award in the print category. For me winning this has opened my eyes to the fact that if I put my mind to it, I can write and I can put my thoughts down on to paper. Never in a million years did I think I would ever win an awards for writing but Rory has inspired to and now that I am doing my diploma in journalism I will continue! (I will also link my Mencap entry post down below)

Then there is all of my little personal achievements. Reaching 20,000 views here on the blog! A stat I never thought I would see, but I am so happy that I did. Then there is getting Kings Lynn Town Hall lit up in blue and yellow for my little warrior brother in aid of World Down Syndrome day. Another big achievement not just for me but also for Cleo is working with Asda and Dr Hilary Jones. It was an amazing experience and the video that Cleo will always be there for me to show her when she is older. As well as the day of filming, I was also invited to The Ivy for lunch. It is something I will never forget!

There are so many little achievements that have made 2017 one of my best years yet!

Here’s to 2018!!

Hi! I am a 23 year old blogger from little old Norfolk. I am a wife to Jonny and a mummy to 2 daughters, Elsa and Cleo. I started this blog in September 2016 and have fell in love with blogging! My blog is my little space on the internet to write about what I want. I write about my little brother, who has Down Syndrome and I use my blog and social media to raise awareness. As well as product reviews, our adventures.
