July 31, 2018 admin 0

I have just completed the 7 month of my year of giving project and I can’t believe how quick the year is going. My baby has just finished his first year in Reception and my eldest has just left year 3 and we are currently enjoying some down time over the holidays.   So far my year of giving project has taught me a number of things   1.) It is possible to give back […]

#MyYearofGiving the 6 month mark

July 2, 2018 admin 0

#myyearofgiving Six months ago I decided not to make any new years resolutions as such but to do two things, one was to say yes to the boys more when they ask to do stuff instead of worrying about the mess or time and just let them have fun and the second was to give back to the world more with #myyearofgiving.   The idea of  my year of giving project was to encourage myself […]

My Year of Giving – May

I am starting to really enjoy writing these posts and reflecting on the previous month and what, if anything, I have done to give back in some way. The only problem is that I am really noticing how quickly this year is going and I can’t believe that we are now at the end of May, 5 months into my 12 month project – My year of giving, so what have I been up to in […]

March 31, 2018 admin 0

As March comes to an end I find myself thinking how quickly this year is flying by already. I have now completed my third month of my year of giving where I am on the hunt for different ways to help others that don’t necessarily mean donating money to charities because lets face it, we don’t always have spare money, but that shouldn’t mean we don’t help others.   This month I have attempted to […]

My Year of giving – January

January 31, 2018 admin 0

At the start of this year I decided not to make any resolutions as such but instead to give what I could when I could to help others and embark on #myyearofgiving. I also decided to document some of the things that I do throughout the year, not to brag or fish for compliments but to show people ways they can make a difference and to encourage more people to do the same.   During […]
