Happy New Year!
Did you have a chance to relax over Christmas? I hope so!
Our Christmas was... eventful! If you follow Beautifully Organised on Twitter & Facebook you may have seen my updates on poor Sophie - she broke her arm falling off a swing on Boxing Day... and ended up needing surgery on her elbow and a 3 day stay in hospital!
Poor little thing, but I have to say she handled it really well - better than I think I would have! The staff and volunteers at the hospital were amazing - I was allowed to stay with Soph the whole time and they made us feel so at home, she barely complained at all. We are SO grateful for everyone there, and for our family for helping us out looking after Georgia so we could spend time with Sophie at the hospital.
I'm also really thankful for all of you! It was so lovely getting your well wishes, thoughts and tips on managing our time in hospital :) It really made me realise how much this blog has become a community of people happy to share what works for them and help each other out. I'm so proud of all of you and feel so lucky to have you here xx
So to say thank you for all of your support over the last few weeks and since I first started this blog, I'm running a giveaway this week!
I have 5 Beautifully Organised prize packs to give away - each valued at over $100 and consisting of:
