Time for this month’s monthly goals… For the most part, the April showers have been kept at bay and the bright sunshine has greeted us as we’ve opened the curtains in the morning. It’s been a little breezy but we can handle that. April also brought us the children home for the school holidays which was lovely to have them home to enjoy family time and Easter celebrations
There is no doubting that Spring is here, from the beautiful blossom on the trees, the relatively good weather and of course, Easter celebrations. It’s amazing the difference that the brighter days can make to our attitude and approach to the day ahead. Life will always be busy but I’ve been attempting to be more present at the moment rather than overwhelmed by the list of things I need to complete.
The first quarter of the year has gone already, but the brighter days and hopefully warmer weather are now on the horizon. The clocks have leapt forward for Spring and we’re now enjoying the longer evenings of British Summer Time. March is always a funny month as some years we have Easter celebrations, whilst others like this one it is merely the month in the middle of half-term and Easter.
Spring appears to have sprung this month. The warmer and drier days enabled us to get the washing on the line, the grass cut and the garden bush trimmed. As well as completing other tasks around the house – the brighter days make me feel more energised. It’s been a month of recovering from the February half-term and planning for the upcoming Easter holidays around everyday family life.
I’ve honestly felt like I’m bouncing from one thing to another, but here we are at the end of the shortest month of the year. Time to reflect on the monthly goals I set for February and nite down those that I am looking to focus on during March.
This month’s #LittleLoves… February has blown by so quickly – sorry for the Storm Eunice joke! Jokes aside, the shortest month of the year is coming to an end and it really doesn’t feel as though we’ve had the opportunity to make the most of it. Which is part of the reason I like to share my #LittleLoves with you to help me look back at the month and focus on those little things in life that have made me smile.
January often feels like a long month that drags on and on, so I’m thankful that I set monthly goals to focus my mind on something other than the January blues. Waving goodbye to the festive season, recovery going slowly and What The Dad Said breaking his toe have thrown spanners in the works.
This month’s #LittleLoves… The final days of January are finally here. January always feels like the longest month of the year. I’m never sure if it is due to the colder weather taking hold, the loss of the Christmas decorations of those extra days between paydays after the expense of the month before.
Family travels and adventures are a huge part of our lives. Something we wanted for the children, to make memories together and to in part heal our guilt for our work patterns. Although the past few years have taken a hit on our family adventures due to the pandemic and financially.
We are here poised at the beginning of a new calendar, the days, weeks and months ahead are unknown but why not think about 22 things you’d like to achieve in 2022. Whether these are tasks, goals, learning something new, the world is your oyster!
