brilliant blog posts-Honest Mum

I can’t believe this is the final Brilliant Blog Posts link up of 2016.

What a strange and shocking year it’s been for the whole world hey? I never thought Brexit would happen or Trump would be President.

For myself it was a year of incredible career highs (such as becoming and Jet2Holidays‘ Digital Ambassador, winning two awards at the Britmums’ Brilliance in Blogging Awards and signing a book deal). It was also a year of precious family moments, a highlight being an incredible summer holiday to the South of France and of course seeing my sweet boys growing and flourishing and finding their confidence.

It was also a year tinged with sadness as a close family member deals with illness, which has been incredibly painful for us all too.

Blogging has got me through these tough times. My blog is my constant, my go-to, my therapy. Thank you all for supporting and reading what I have to say. Without you all, I wouldn’t have achieved what I have this year and I’m so incredibly grateful to you guys. For understanding who I am and making me feel I belong.

Thank You.

Now, onto this week’ post. I’m sharing a post and vlog of my trip to London last week which saw me attend the opening of Portobello Road Gin’s new venue, The Distillery – a 4 floor mecca with 2 bars/eateries, a Ginstitute (where you can make your own gin), a gin museum and even guest rooms!

I got to hang out with some amazing friends and although it may have taken this mama another couple of days to recover, it was one of those breaks that helped me rediscover myself and let my hair down. It was SO needed!


Now for BBP, do come add your posts, old, new and as many as you like and join in the fun. The linky will be open until Jan 4th so don’t forget to pop back and forth and keep the blog love going over the festive period!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

    It’s certainly been an eventful year! The gin distillery looks great fun. We visited a rum distillery in Barbados in October (rum’s my husband’s favourite tipple) but we got there too late for the tasting. He was gutted as it was his birthday, so he bought two bottles at duty free to compensate. Oh well, I suppose it gives us an excuse to back one day! Happy New Year 🙂

    The Distillery is high on my list of must-visit places… whenever I manage to find enough time during my brief visits to Britain. I’ll get there one day – in the meantime, I shall have to enjoy it vicariously via your blog, Vicky! xx
