2018 GOALS




How are we at the beginning of 2018 already! I thought this year I would set myself some goals for 2018, but not too many as I want to be able to achieve most of them if not all of them this year.

1, HEALTHY LIVING
Start a healthy lifestyle after the baby is born. I want to start eat healthy again like I was before I got pregnant and to start exercising more. I think this will help me feel good about myself again after having the baby and I am going to set a weight lose goal to get down to 10 stone by the end of the year.

2, YOUTUBE SUBSCRIBERS
Focus on YouTube a little more. I upload videos whenever I can, I don't like to do a set day or amount of videos I will upload each week as I feel I might be forcing myself to make videos and then they may not turn out too great. I want to reach a goal of 1000 subscribers by the end of 2018. I am currently at 558 subscribers as I write this post. The link to my YouTube channel is www.youtube.com/c/bexmorts if you would like to help me reach that goal then please go and hit that subscribe button.

3, PUT THE PHONE DOWN
I think me and my husband Darren should focus on this goal a lot more this year. We are really bad for sitting there with our heads in our phones while Sonny sits and watches his TV. I would like to put that phone down and start playing more with Sonny.

4, SONNY'S GOALS
Some goals I would like to set myself for Sonny is to get him out of nappies day and night and have him fully potty trained by the age of three in June. Also to get him off his dummy's, he replies and asks for his dummy so much and its throughout the day and when he sleeps. He is turning into a big boy now so its time to start giving the dummy up. With the baby arriving in March I may leave this goal till after he has got used to his baby sister being around.

5, MONTHLY FAMILY PHOTOS
Something we hardly ever take is a family photo. Its so hard to get someone to take that photo and also remembering to take the photo at the time to make memories. I am setting myself a goal of taking a family photo each month. I will post the family photo on my Instagram account each month. Also I may post each month on my blog a monthly family update with the photo. This may help to motivate me to take the photo.

These are the only goals I am going to set myself this year as I already have a lot going on this year with the arrival of the baby girl in March. I think this is going to be a great year and I will also get to spend more time with both of my babies when I start my maternity leave in February.


What's your goals for 2018?

Sonny's Christmas Wish List



Sonny's Christmas Wish List
Balance Bike
We are not sure if Sonny is ready for a balance bike yet but I think it makes a lovely main present from Santa so this is on his wish list. He may pick it up really quickly if he gets one. There are loads of different ones in the shops, I doubt we will spend too much in case he doesn’t get on with it.

Tool Work Bench
This is something Darren wants Sonny to have for Christmas as Darren works with tools everyday he wants his little boy to follow in his footsteps. Not sure we have the space for this in our house but it’s still on the wish list for Santa. You can also pick these up pretty cheap if you shop around.


Woody and Buzz (Toy Story)
Sonny is obsessed with the Toy Story films. I think he would be so excited to receive a Woody and Buzz toy from Santa for Christmas this year. His favourite is Buzz and he pretends to be him. We watch the film most days and he already has Buzz pyjamas. I can’t wait to see his face on the day if Santa gets him these on the day.

Big Fire Engine or Emergency services vehicles
He loves nee nahs and gets excited every time on drives past us. He has small emergency service vehicle’s which he plays with currently and pushes them around saying nee nah. I think he would love a bigger version to push around and play with. This would also be ideal to play with in the garden in the summer as well. So this is also on the list for Santa.

I know he will receive so many gifts but these will be on the list to Santa.

I would love to hear about what your little ones are getting or have on their wish list for Christmas/ Santa.

My Christmas Wish List



My Christmas Wish List

So these are the items I will have on my Christmas wish list this year for Santa.



Hair Straighteners (GHD)

Something I have never owned but everyone around me seems to own a pair. I really would love a pai of GHD hair straighteners as they work amazing on my hair. When I go to the hair dressers they always use these and my hair goes silky smooth. Maybe one day I will own a pair.



Stud Earrings

I always loose earrings. Last year Sonny got me some really nice heart ones and I lost on in the pool in Cyprus I was gutted. So I am now in need of some new ones as all I have is the pair I wore on my wedding day, I would rather keep these as best so I don’t loose them.



Lush Bath Bombs

I love the Lush bath bombs but never treat myself as they are a little pricey and I have to go all the way to the Bath shop to buy them. So I would love to be treated to some in my Santa stocking this year. I am really excited to see the Christmas range.



Spa Voucher

What mum/lady doesn’t love a spa voucher? I love a day of relaxation and I don’t even mind going on my own as I find this more relaxing. I obviously wouldn’t be able to use it till after the baby has arrived but it will give me something to look forward to and help me relax after the baby. We have a few nice spas local to us which is a good thing as then I don’t have to drive too far to get to them.



This is my Santa list, please Santa I promise I have been a god girl this year.

What’s on your Santa wish list this year?

Selling Sonny's Old Clothes





So we recently found out we are having a baby girl in March. I can now start sorting out all of Sonny's old things and get selling as they are taking up so much room in the house and garage.

I started by trying to sell things on Facebook baby/kids selling pages. I didn't have much luck on here, I sold a couple of bits but I didn't get much luck. I still post things on there every now and then just to try.

I have put a few things on EBay and I have found people seem to like buying Next on there. So I have gone through some of Sonny's clothing and popped a few of the nicer clothing items on there.

The next thing I have tried was a little pickles market which is like a car boot sale type thing but just for baby items. We done this on Sunday and we managed to get rid of a few bits but as I was selling them really cheap and also I had to pay £9 for a table I only actually made £25 in the end. I would however do one of these markets again when its next on.

I have managed to save a couple of Sonny's clothing for the girl like the natural colours that are still in good condition.

I still have lots to get rid of and I will be continuing to and sell most of it.

My next step it to start shopping for the baby girl clothes which I am very excited about. I am waiting for the NEXT sale and January sales to start before I start shopping for her and I will also try and make sure I don't over buy.

If anybody has any tips on how to sell second hand baby clothes please let me know.
