I’m not even going to think about how long it’s been since I’ve posted anything here. To say that 2017 didn’t quite go to plan would be a little bit of an understatement and everything that wasn’t immediately important got pushed to one side and basically forgotten about. I’m finally feeling like I have time to sit down, breathe and take stock of everything that’s happened in the last 7 or 8 months.

The cliffnotes version of it is:

  • My mum got diagnosed with breast cancer – but is in remission as of Christmas Eve
  • Paul & I got married in the summer.
  • We moved house, because of
  • We welcomed baby #2 into the world in November. A little boy called Harry.

Things, as you can imagine, have been a little hectic – but for the most part it’s all been very positive and very exciting.

That brings me to today. I picked up my computer for the first time in 2 or 3 months, checked my emails, updated my goodreads and now here I am blogging. Paul is in his chair watching football, Chloe is taking up as much floor space as possible doing some colouring in, Harry is asleep on my chest and Taylor Swift is singing my ears. It’s about as perfect as it can get right now.

I’ve been doing a lot of taking stock of my life, of figuring out who I am and who I want to be. I lost myself somewhere in all the chaos so my main goal for 2018 is to redefine who Tabby is. And hopefully you’ll be joining on me on this journey of re-discovery

  1. Sounds like quite the year, though most seems pretty positive! Glad to hear your mom is in remission! Hope she stays well! Also congrats on the new home and baby! =3


  2. Welcome back to the blogisphere, and congratulations on the baby and your marriage! Two milestones I am still unsure if I’ll check off or not! Haha.
    So sorry about your mother’s diagnosis, but great news that she’s in remission 🙂 Hoping that she’ll stay in remission for a very long time! Best wishes for 2018!!



  3. Wow. It was a huge year for you last year. With so many things happening. I can understand why you felt everything was hectic! The fact you are able to draw on positives and make progress in self-discovery is fantastic. You should be very proud of that.

    It would have been challenging with your mother’s diagnosis. Cancer is a scary word and brings with it horrible thoughts and scenarios. My dad had bowel cancer twice. The second time I was a mess. Thankfully he made a full recovery and has been cancer free for almost ten years. I wish your mother the best and hope everything is positive.

    I also hope that 2018 will be a much better year. Your family will be healthy, you can enjoy your new home and enjoy spending time with your husband and children. ❤


  4. I loved reading this, I can imagine how all those sudden changes in your life caused it to fly past without you taking a break and reflecting. I’m glad you took the time to reflect now though, I’m really looking forward to reading about your journey on self-discovery through this blog.

    Congratulations on your marriage and little boy ❤ I'm sorry about your mom but wishing her all the best, sending all the love and positive vibes your way.

    I hope you have a great year ahead!
