The Me & Mine Project – December 2018

The Me And Mine Project – December 2018

Welcome back to The Me And Mine Project, which is about capturing the whole family together in a photograph. So each month, we take a family photo of the four of us and tell you a little bit about what we’ve been up to that month.

We started December celebrating Shalini’s 13th birthday. Her birthday falls on 30th November so the first weekend is always spent marking her big day. This year was a big one, as she officially became a teenager!

We also spent the month going to lots of events around Christmas. I love the build-up to Christmas and so I usually book a lot of things in advance. This year we were invited to a few events for the blog, including a theatre production of The Wizard Of Oz, the panto at Birmingham Hippodrome and Visiting Santa.

We spent the first half of Christmas Day at my parents’ house and the second half at my in-laws’ place.

Here is our December photo, sitting by the tree at my mum and dad’s place.Me & Mine - Us At Christmas

* started planning our next holiday!


This month Sukh has…

 * booked our next holiday!

    that’s a cool idea to take a picture every month as a family and do a little recap of what you all did or accomplished that month.

    Sounds like you had such a busy but fun month! I missed seeing Mary Poppins and it’s not on the local cinema now – I have to look further afield #TriumphantTales

      Thanks Jo. Yeah it was a lovely film. Not as magical as the first but that’s an impossible task anyway – as it was the kind of movie that can’t ever be matched. Hope you get to watch it.

    It sounds like you had a lovely Christmas period and happy birthday to Shalini! I’ve not been to the cinema since the Greatest Showman so I’m sure I’ll catch it when it’s on DVD – I hear it’s different to the original!
    Thank you for sharing this with us at #TriumphantTales. I hope to see you back next week.

      Thank you – yes it’s a lovely film although misses that slight magic of the first. But still worth watching x
