January goals – What I achieved this month

The end of January, and I must admit I am always sad saying goodbye to the first month of the year. January is one of my favourite months, and this year has been no exception. We have celebrated 2 birthdays, I have been on a lovely spa day with my husband, enjoyed meals out with friends and family, and had lots of fun this month.

The week of birthdays and celebrating

This past week is always one of the busiest and craziest of the year, with not one but two birthdays in the same week. I celebrated turning 45 on Tuesday, and Katie officially became a teenager on Friday. It has been a whirlwind of a week full of birthdays and celebrating, and of course filled with cake and laughter. Who said the middle of January was boring. Here is a little look back at the past week.

Phew what a week that was. When you have 2 birthdays to celebrate in one week, it is always going to be filled with lots of fun. What I didn’t factor in was the husband getting the flu. Not even man flu, but the real deal which has seen him signed off work for over a week. It has been a real mixture of a week, but plenty of positives and birthday celebrations.

I got lots of lovely books for my birthday, but typically have not managed to pick one up yet. I think I will start with the wonderful Hurrah for Gin, as I fancy giggling myself to sleep every night. I did read LOTS of birthday cards, and when your daughter’s birthday is 3 days after … Continue reading
