The (Not Big or Fat) Quiz of the Year

I was tagged by the lovely Alex over at Lamb and Bear to answer some (not so) probing questions about 2016 and the New Year. Seeing as my blogging has been very sporadic over December, I thought it would be a good way of easing me back into blogging life gently!

Drumroll please.....

What was your highlight of 2016?

We had a brilliant year but it would have to be finding out we were expecting baby number 2! I had never really decided if I wanted another baby so we let nature take it's course, if it happened it happened. If it didn't, then it wasn't meant to be. Well it happened and our new arrival is due at the end of January - eek!

Name one thing you are likely to remember about 2016  if asked in 5 years time

Well I think it will always be remembered as the year of the celebrity death - so many legends in such a short space of time! The big one for me was David Bowie, The Labyrinth was one of my favourite childhood films and he'll always be remembered to me as the Goblin King.

Sum up 2016 in one word

Pregnant! I found out I was expecting back in May so I feel like most of the year has been spent whilst being pregnant - going through all those different stages such as morning sickness, food aversions, scans, expanding waistlines etc etc

Name one pearl of wisdom that you will carry through to 2017. 

Life really is too short so get out there and make the most of it. I had the honour of singing with my choir at a funeral last month and it was a lady just a few years older than me with a young family and her whole life ahead of her. Sadly she lost her fight against cancer and it really made me think about things and appreciate the now.

Do you have any New Years resolutions?

Every year I promise myself that I'll get healthier and 2017 won't be any different. Except I won't be returning to Slimming World for a few months yet!

How did you see in the New Year? 

I'm not really too fussed about NYE and I usually take a bit of persuading to do anything but at least this year we had a good excuse not to go out! It was much like any other evening except I actually managed to stay awake til midnight!

What would you most like to do in 2017?

I'd really like to be able to spend more time on my blog this year - I feel like I've neglected it a bit and life has got in the way. But you know, with a newborn I'm bound to have loads more time to write aren't I?!

So that's my little quiz - I'm going to tag the following lovely bloggers if they want to take part:

Sabrina @ The Mummy Stylist
Laura @ Life with Baby Kicks
Dawn @ Dear Mummy 
Natasha @ Bebe Bear Cubs
