The end of 2012 – a look back

So it is almost the end of the year. Granted it is not the end of the Islamic year but living in the west this is the calender we follow on a day to day basis and therefore I thought I would look back on it.

Alhamdulillah 2012 has been a good year, because my second princess arrived.

It was the beginning of 2012 that I discovered I was pregnant. Then the rest of the year was pretty much taken up with the pregnancy and loads of appointments due to gestational diabetes. In all honesty it made the year pass quickly. It literally does feel like yesterday that I was looking at the line on the pregnancy test.

In September my second princess finally arrived Alhamdulillah.

I have made some good online friends who were also pregnant at the same time as me but also sadly feel like there is some distance between me and some old friends. Guess we all move on at some point.

My blog has been neglected abit since giving birth but inshAllah will make more of an effort with it in 2013 and try to give it some kind of direction. I have met some lovely fellow bloggers through their blogs or twitter and hope to meet many more.

Thank you to my loyal followers who followed me throughout my pregnancy and also to the companies who have sent me products to review.

Have a fab 2013 everyone!
