I can’t say I’m sad to see the back of January, it is probably my least favourite month, and I am so excited for what’s going to happen at the end of this month. Disneyland Paris is only a couple of weeks away. I have apologised to my husband in advance for the Minnie Mouse ears I will be purchasing as soon as we get there and wearing for our entire stay!
I treated myself to a few new books from Amazon and this is the first one I have started to read. When I return to work I am determined to be more focused on not saying Yes to too many things and ending up overwhelmed with things I don’t really want to do. I’ve only just started it but will keep you updated how it’s going.
Nothing too exciting this week, although I did enjoy the last couple of episodes of Silent Witness. It’s a program my parents got me into years ago, they have long since stopped watching but I was hooked. I was shouting at the TV for the last few minutes of the final episode (if you watched it, you’ll know what I mean).
We’ve been making some money this week having a clear out of G’s tiny baby clothes. His bedroom is starting to resemble a jumble sale as he has that many outgrown clothes and we have been trying to declutter. A lot has gone to charity and some of the nicer things we have been listing on eBay. Looking at the little chunkster now it’s hard to believe he fit into some of the tiny clothes. I may have shed a few tears thinking packing them away.
This little jacket was O’s originally and I loved it, but you can’t hang on to everything, can you?
This week has been all about the faux leather. In a moment of madness I tried on a pair of faux leather trousers in Next and surprised myself with how much I liked them.
I also treated myself to a new faux leather jacket this week and I love it. I was a bit unsure in the shop and bought it so that I could try it out with other items in my wardrobe (please tell me I’m not the only person who does this). After a day I was smitten and it is a keeper.
We’re still loving the Trolls soundtrack so here’s another one of my faves.
We have a little family tradition that on the last Saturday of January we go to the same restaurant in Manchester (largely because they have 50% off food) and have been for years. This year was our first visit as a family of four. Eating out with two little people isn’t a relaxing experience in any way but I think that’s part of the fun.
I hope you’ve had a lovely week, see you next Friday. xx
