January usually has the feeling of being a long month, especially after the festivities of Christmas and the New Year. However, I’m struggling to recall where this month has gone and what I have managed to accomplish. Between the decorations being packed away for another festive season, the children returning to school and work shifts, life has passed by in somewhat of a blur.
It’s not al doom and gloom though, there are always #LittleLoves in our everyday lives that bring smiles, giggles and the motivation to strive through life in lockdown.
This month’s #LittleLoves…
Although my to be read list and Amazon Kindle wishlist are bursting at the seams, there is something wonderful about downloading a new book on to my Kindle Paperwhite. This month I have been making an effort to tick off the advanced reader copies I have received from NetGalley and BookSprout. The opportunity to read new releases ahead of time and share my thoughts on the books.
I was excited to read Prince Charming this month, the second book in the Cinderella series from K. Webster. Although I was frustrated to discover that this was another cliffhanger book – with The Glass Slipper not released until April!… I can’t want that long to find out what happens!
Bad Boys II is one of my favourite films and I was so excited to see that they had made another film in the series. Unfortunately, we were unable to see this in the cinema when it was released. But finally managed to sit down with What The Dad Said to watch Bad Boys For Life on Sky Movies – it didn’t disappoint.
I did have high hopes of watching the new Bridgerton series on Netflix, especially after hearing all the great reviews about it. Sadly, I haven’t managed to do this so fingers crossed I can binge watch this in February.
With the Christmas decorations being packed away it was time to wave a fond farewell to the Christmas songs too – thank goodness as they were driving me around the bend! Allowing me to enjoy the All 90s and All 00s stations on Amazon Music. Loving the ability to skip the tunes from my teen years that I’m not quite feeling at the time.
Having worked my festive contract wearing Christmas jumpers and slowly melting on the shop floor. I was so pleased to receive my work uniform at the start of the month. The polo shirts are so much more comfortable than jumpers (although I’m still just as hot). Unfortunately the trousers are not designed for ladies with thighs, so I’m sticking to my trusting black slacks at the moment. It’s funny to think about how much I rebelled about wearing a uniform at school, yet now I am thankful of one.
Move along, nothing to see here 🤦🏻♀️
I’m so proud of my children who have adjusted to being keyworker children (Tigger and Piglet) and learning from home (Roo). After so much time away from their usual routine last year, I’d hoped that things would be more ‘normal’ for them this year but sadly it’s not meant to be. They have taken it in their stride and have understood the reasons behind the new arrnagements.
