Being Zoe's Mum and 2014

I missed you in 2014... As I missed being the hands on mum I've been since Z was born. I feel weird when I actually think about this lying down besides Z after making her sleep. Work did become a priority in 2014, though I'd like to add... not for a moment ... not once did I ignore my personal life (Z, Fizz and my home).I still feel I could've done better on the personal front... Like I did professionally. That's one thing I'd like to balance better in the coming year.

Though I might say I wasn't too good as a mum in the year gone by... Z has become extremely close to me though. She doesn't want to let go off me at times. I make sure I spend as much time as I can with her. In the coming year I plan to do a lot of fun stuff with Z. Maybe Z's first international trip... Who knows! Fingers and toes crossed.

I ignored the blog completely. Did nothing besides some book reviews and a few random posts. I'll try to make it alive again. I plan to do 2 posts a month... I will try.

Here's wishing all the readers and everyone out there a Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious 2015

Happy 4th Birthday Z

Birthdays are special, and this year we had decided we will do what Z wants for her birthday. We celebrated Z's birthday a couple of days after her real one (on the 29th of November). We would have loved to do the celebrations at home, but logistically it wasn't possible. We chose Gubacheez, because that is a place Z loves.

Z wanted to call everyone from her class and from the library. We told her she can call 15 kids + parents, finally she came down to 16 kids (the child wants to have her way ALWAYS).

We wanted a pretty no-fuss party, where children would come and enjoy. Kids played, got tattoos done and had lots of fun.

The star of the evening (besides Z) was the cake, I had picked the design after weeks of research. The cake was in shape of an open book with her favorite Julia Donaldson characters popping out. The cake looked AWESOME, and tasted the best I have had in ages. Thanks to Cake Room.

I leave you with a few pictures from the D-Day
