So long 2013,we hardly knew ya!

A quick review for what seems like the quickest year ever(except for this period of time).
January-the funeral of my amazing godmother,the realisation that life is short and that you shouldn't let fear stop you making the choices that deep down you want to make,leading to a decision myself and the Frenchman had been agonising over for quite some time-whether or not to go for another baby and accepting the reality that sometimes things don't work outlike you hoped.

So we went for it...and got pregnant in February but I was still a bit nervous about sharing the news until here.

April-and I rang in my 32nd year in bizarre fashion by becoming the unwilling recipient of some dodgy sexual advances by some dirty old men and appearing on the front cover of the Sun!Got to chat to Ray D'Arcy though so it wasn't all bad!

September saw Mini gracing the front cover of local newspapers and getting into some national ones!
And the event that I had been wishing and praying would turn out ok did with beautiful baby Eloïse joining our family in November.

December we had our first Christmas dinner in our house in Galway instead of at our parents homes so I guess that makes us proper grown ups now!Or something!

And now the year is at an end. Id like to say a big thank you to everyone for visiting the blog.It really means a lot that you take the time to read about our adventures.Looking forward to sharing the new ones with you in 2014. Happy New Year and may you all grab it by the balls in pursuit of your dreams because sometimes they really do come true.


  1. I remember you on the Ray Darcy show - somehow this feels like a "small world" situation :)

  2. Happy New Year Aedin! Wow, what a year you had. Hope 2014 is a great one for you too.

  3. I really like people's reviews on their year - & it can highlight new posts that you might miss when looking through someone's blog! I found your blog through Fiona's blog hop!
