2011 to do list

Every year I make a to do list, resolutions seem to fall by the way side after the 3rd week in January and the gym membership stops getting used about mid February.
So here is my to do list for 2011

* Get fit. My 10 month old is already crawling rings around me I dread to think what he will be like when he starts walking.

*Clean out my wardrobe. Anything that hasn't been worn in the last 12 months will be given to charity.

* Do a detox for a week. I've ever actually managed to do a detox before, I usually last about 2 hours.

*To go and explore New York for a week. I've only ever flown in and flown out again

*To take my sistesr to Paris for a long weekend

*Teach DJ to walk

* To make a kick ass come back to the wonderful world of movies. More details to follow... ;-)

* To do a photography course

*To take more time to actually enjoy my baby boy instead of trying to be super mum and do it all. It doesn't matter if the house falls apart. He is growing up way to fast.

What are your 2011 to do lists?

Merry Christmas to you all.
I hope you all had an amazing christmas? I certainly did.
Andrew for my christmas present flew my mum over all the way from New Zealand. I haven't seen her in 2 years.
It was a very emotional for a number of reasons the main one being it was the first time for her to meet DJ, her first grandchild. It has been a long hard 2 years being pregnant and having my first baby with out her here so you can imagine the tears.
Having my whole family here for DJs first christmas just meant the world to me. DJ was a little overwhelmed by all the people here and all the presents, he thought all the presents were for him and wanted to open them all. Of course he didn't care what was inside, he wanted the wrapping paper.
Here are some photos from our crazy family get together
Lots of love

Meeting Santa and the Aunties

Stepping out Saturday

Ok I Know I am late with this one again, But my sisters have arrived. Laura Jane arrived from New Zealand after her flights were cancelled about 4 times due to technical problems, and Sophie just made it before they closed Heathrow airport due to all the snow. So at least they are both here. We are now awaiting our father and our brother. I just hope the snow clears before christmas eve. Other wise they will have to hitch a lift with Father Christmas.
In other news we took DJ to see Santa he was less than thrilled. He just clung to his daddy.
But at least we got some photos.
SO now we are all cozy in our house watching the snow falling all around us.

My Holly Golightly moment

I was aimlessly wondering around London yesterday, whittling away the time till my flight back to Dublin. After an early flight made even earlier due to the fact that DJ decided he wanted to get up at 4.30am. I had an amazing meeting followed by a yummy lunch with a friend and now I was cold alone and wanting to go home to my baby. I still had 2 hours to kill before I even had to be at the airport. So as I felt a case of the mean reds creeping upon me, I thought of my idol Holly Golightly and thought I better get over to Old Bond Street and go to the one place that can make any girl smile. Tiffany's.
Just the very sight of the building made my heart jump for joy. Entering its big grand doors greeted by a rather burly but lovely door man and seeing all the smily lovely assistances just lifted my spirits instantly. Now every thing was a little out of my price range, but it didn't stop me looking.
I had my little Holly Golightly moment and made my merry little way off to the airport.
Maybe Ill have a little blue box under the tree for christmas? A girl can dream right?

Stepping out Sunday

One of my fellow bloggers and yummy mummy Meghann ( you can find her here gave me this great idea, Every Saturday yummy mummies around the world post a picture of them selves and their little ones so we can see what they wore on that day. As I am obsessed with clothes and love seeing what others are wearing and where its from, I decided I would have to steal this idea and start doing it myself. Its usually called Stepping out Saturday but as I am a day late I am calling it Stepping out Sunday just for today...
