It’s been a dark and rough month for us in January plagued with unknown rashes, illnesses and swollen eyes shut. Yup, we just really wanted to get it all out of our system at the start of the year, I guess. But I am not letting it consume us anymore. We still have had some lovely days out, walking along the canal even in the cold and fog. There seems to be a lot of fog at the moment around us. I wish it would lift. I am missing the blue skies and sunshine that makes us all feel more energetic and healthy. I feel like the month ahead we will get that seasonal change that we need and earn for.
We also have kept January a quiet month with not much in the diary on purpose this year. We were constantly on the go last year and we just needed some time to plan out the year’s holidays and stay home to catch some much needed family chill out time. We have had painting afternoons and movie days in living dens and I have loved every minute of it. I feel less stressed out and less pressured to make some huge happen every weekend. Having said that though I am looking forward to some trips this year and some fun days out tentatively planned for next month. We are also hoping to catch up with friends we haven’t seen in a while too.
MOMMY IS LOVING:
Reading The Grisha Trilogy
Watching Gilmore Girls from the very start.
Clearing out the house, completely, every cabinet/cupboard.
DADDY IS LOVING:
Watching Tiger Woods again (even though he is crap).
His new car.
BUBA IS LOVING:
Going to lunch with Granddad.
Building harder Legos (age 14!).
Having his friends from school over to play.
MISSY MOO IS LOVING:
Starting proper Preschool now.
Scooting through the park.
Painting like Picasso on canvas none stop.
We have found a new little spot to go for walks along the canal near where we live. It’s fun for the kids to see the boats. It’s somewhere new to roam around in the fresh air. We have lived in this area since B was born but we hardly do much in our own town. There is still so many more places to seek out and explore so this is our mission this year as a family. We have set some family goals that we want to achieve together too.
We are looking forward to February and some time off just at home. We aren’t going anywhere this half term but the kids have a few craft requests, playdates planned and I am praying the weather is nice for us to get outdoors for most of it. There is nothing better than fresh air and our weekend park life as a family. Roll on to February than Spring for longer and lighter days. I can’t wait! Not that I am wishing my life away, just January away which I think is reasonable.
It’s such a lovely family photo project to join in on. Don’t forget to check out the fab host and cohosts of this family project and see their gorgeous families too. Our beautiful Host and Creator Lucy, and our Cohosts with a new addition this year too: Alex, Charlotte, Fritha, Katie and Lucy.
