Our January was pretty much a quiet, steady sort of month. We settled back into our usual everyday routines after the Christmas holidays and plodded along until here we are at the very last day of the month. It
didn't actually feel as long or as dark as I had anticipated and it wasn't
that cold either, all of which I'm grateful for knowing what a struggle
January could be at times. And I am also grateful for all the joyful things that came our way this month, from simple pleasures like baking with
Lulu, listening to Markie reading, going out for walks and getting engrossed in a new book, to big, exciting events like our pop up
restaurant going well, my husband getting a secondment at work and booking our flights to the Philippines this May. These things cheered us, brightened our days and kept us going. Of course it wasn't all rosy.
There were tiring, grump-inducing days too, as well as illnesses that lingered for many days. But it still wasn't such a bad January, not at all. In fact, it's been kind to us and I feel we're blessed to have had a very good start to the New Year.
So on now to February. There's half-term in two weeks' time, new books
to read, WIP's old and new to get on with, pancakes to make and enjoy.
Lots of good things to see us through another winter month and then, hopefully, it will be Springtime.
How about you? How was your January?
