The (Not Big or Fat) Quiz of the Year 2016


Wow would you believe it! 2016 up and went as quickly as it came and what a year it is to remember too! Katie at Living Life Our Way has tagged me to answer these insightful questions from her blog post ‘The (Not Big or Fat) Quiz of the Year.’

What was your highlight of 2016?

The highlight of 2016 for me was having the courage to set up my own blog. I’ve wanted to set up a blog for quite a long while, but never knew where to start having never blogged before. Sonny has been my inspiration through all of this, with the knowledge and understanding I have enabling me to see him in a different light, I wish to pass that on to all those around us.

Name one thing you are most likely to remember about 2016 if asked in five years time?

Sonny thriving in a full time mainstream school. Although he is on a reduced timetable and has 1:1 at all times, the fact he is doing so well is incredible.

Sum up 2016 in one word.


Name one pearl of wisdom from 2016 that you will carry with you through 2017.

You are strong enough to get through all the curve balls life throws at you. Always be loving, stay kind and true to yourself.

Do you have any new year resolutions?

I started running in the summer and was doing really well for someone who insisted they would only run if they were being chased by something or someone. Changes to our work schedule really made it difficult to keep this up. I will get back on track this year.

How are you seeing in the new year?

The same as every year. At home, with Joe and the children who will all be asleep (likely including Joe.) We aren’t big drinkers, so will probably welcome in the new year in our new Christmas pyjamas, a cup of tea and some naughty food!

What would you most like to do in 2017?

I want to go on holiday somewhere new with the family. We went on a short weekend break over Easter but it would be lovely to explore somewhere we have never been before.

What are your main goals for 2017?

  • To start running again.
  • Get back into Pilates, practicing at home whenever I can.
  • To make the transition to dairy free. I have noticed how much better I feel without it in my diet.
  • Keep progressing with my blog to raise Autism awareness.
  • To get my house decorated. It’s been almost 3 years in our home now and I can’t keep making the ‘we haven’t been here long’ excuses anymore.
  • To keep setting goals and achieving them.

I would like to tag Hannahs Healthy Eats, Someone’s Mum, Little B and Me and Autism with Lots of Love and Affection to answer these questions about their year.

Have a happy and healthy New Year from us to you!

May your days glitter like diamond.
May your friends be as good as gold.
May your heart stay as true as silver
and may your soul remain as pure as pearl.
