Well, that’s a wrap 2017

2017 wrap up - Ever-changing Life of a Mum

Today will be my final post for the year as I spend some time with my family over the Christmas and new year break.

I wish to thank each and every one of my readers, whether you are someone who has followed and shared my journey from the very beginning or are new to discovering my blog, for your ongoing support.

In the past year, my little blog has been visited thousands of times by readers from Australia and across the entire world, and while it may not seem like huge numbers to some, to me it is absolutely massive!

It means the world to me to think that there are actually people out there who read my blog posts and (hopefully) take away something from the words I put together. I truly appreciate the time you take to read and comment on my blog posts as I know just how hectic life can be these days.

I wish you all have a wonderful festive season and hope it is filled with happiness, laughter and time spent with the ones you love the most.

Before I head off, I thought I would share with you a few of your favourite, most popular posts read on the blog throughout the past year.

More Elf on the Shelf antics

More elf on the shelf antics

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas which means we’ll soon be re-welcoming a special member into our family for the festive season – our Elf on the Shelf, Jinx.

We put our Christmas tree up on the weekend in readiness for Jinx’s return on 1st December and this will be the third year that he has visited our home.

It’s such a fun annual tradition for all the family. I know my girls are looking forward to our little elf returning for another year, particularly Miss 2 who is really getting into the Christmas spirit, which always makes me smile. Although let’s hope she doesn’t touch the elf!

If you don’t know much about Elf on the Shelf, check out the post I prepared last year to find out more and see a little of what Jinx got up to at our place in the first year he arrived.

Today I am also sharing all of the crazy antics our elf got up to last year to help give others out there a little inspiration!

Book reviews from tots to tweens

As many of your know, I love nothing more than burying my head in a good book and lucky for me my children feel the same way. I’m always on the lookout for new and interesting reads, for both them and me!

With a little help from my three girls,today I’m reviewing four children’s books covering ages from toddler through to tween. Because what’s better than children’s book reviews if not by children themselves?!

I also think books make the best presents (you can never have enough books!) and with Christmas fast approaching they may also be helpful for selecting a few titles to give as gifts this year.
