A year in review »Holly Made Life Mother

At the end of the year I took some time to look back at the year and to tell the highlights, the poor lighting and everything in between. Take a trip back in time with me and find out about content that you may have missed.


It is difficult to think back to January. Oddly enough, my greatest memory of January is that HotpodYoga Bromsgrove opened, and I think I’ve attended about 15 classes this month.

Although I posted this post about Our Date in Birmingham and shared some overdue photos from our Center Parcs vacation, my main blogging success in January 2019 was writing The Walk That Didn’t Happen, which was later thanks to im Blogosphere Magazine would be released the wonderful Mrs. Shilts,


The best thing about my blog posts in February are those that are still in my designs! Maybe I’ll finish it by next February – there’s a mission. (If you’re interested, I’ve written some Lightroom editing guides that I find very funny, because I think I’ve come a long way since then.)

Feya, London

I hadn’t blogged about it at the time, but of course a highlight in February was seeing my Johnson’s Ambassador friends in London and getting the rosiest and nicest breakfast there Feya (My only criticism was the lack of bacon … it’s pink! It should have fit in exactly and after a night I had drunk the night before, I should have longed for it.)

Small gift at the Birmingham REP Theater

We had a wonderful day with an old friend at the M6 ​​Theater Small gift at the Birmingham REP. This charming production made me grin from start to finish, and it’s a good memory to search the local theater brochures for what we would like to see as a family in 2020. Jim and I have already booked tickets for Seven Streams of the River Ota on The National Theater what I am ridiculous excited about.


Wow, I was just looking through my blog posts for March and I’m sorry people – it was pretty hard, wasn’t it? I wrote a little bit about our travel plans for 2019 and it’s a little depressing to report that we hardly actually traveled. Our tent was used only once (#deadfroggate – I’m sure it will appear in a later month!), We didn’t manage to go to festivals thanks to some unfortunate date clashes and we only managed one family vacation ( a trip to Bluestone from Monday to Friday).

Check out his little face in this picture showing the Moonlite Story Projector! It’s scary to think about how quickly it changes and grows up. And here the lump above his eye is clearly visible before it was removed in June.


With spring, you can see the longer days and warmer weather that allowed us to explore more outdoors, as suddenly many of my blog posts revolve around our days off. This month we spent a lovely afternoon at Hatton Adventure (although Pickle slept three hours while we were there!) And we ventured to Birmingham to experience Ice Age: The Lost Kingdom at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens.

April is always a special month for me because it is the month of our wedding day. We celebrated this year with a very delicious afternoon tea in the Laura Ashley The Tea Room in Solihull (fitting because we got married legally in the Solihull Registry Office).

Redditch Hockey Club awards night

Celebration was at the top of the priority list this month because I had a ball at our annual hockey club awards night. Our team, the Ladies 2s, received a special mention as the team that always tries, trains hard every week and sees many improvements. Playing with these girls weekly during the season is an absolute honor.

I was looking forward to working with Marks & Spencer for the first time. I have completely changed into her jeans and I can no longer go to an M&S grocery store without checking if fruit has been picked at Withers Farm. True story.


Day trip with the canal boat

I just wrote a blog post in May and what a post… A day on the Grand Union Canal. If I hadn’t climbed Snowdon this year, this would have been my favorite day of the year. My parents went on a canal boat vacation for a week and when they were driving along a pretty local canal strip they invited us to join them for a day.

Everything from the weather to the music we heard was perfect. The only minor inconvenience was that we traveled with two cars to leave one car at the start and one car at the end so it was easy to get home but forgot to bring both car keys! This resulted in a rather expensive taxi ride (we had to borrow money from my father since we had no money with us), but it was absolutely worth it.

In May we returned to Bluestone for an urgently needed family vacation. To be honest, my overwhelming memories of this vacation are the many tantrums we have had and the tears of disappointment (both from Pickle and from me!). I have so many beautiful photos that I have not shared yet and that definitely deserve space here Instagram Grid, write our vacation must also happen in 2020.
