Yes well we are well and truly into January, that lull period between the Christmas decorations down and pay day! Shorter days and long nights and add to that snow. So what are your gratefuls this week?
Snow = pretty landscapes, I know most people hate it and I'm none too keen when I have to go somewhere but I have to admit clear roads, but pretty snowy trees today made me smile - so very very pretty! Not sure it'll be the same tomorrow the snow started at 3 this afternoon (thursday) and it's now gone 7pm and still snowing! Roads not looking so clear now!
Chats with my Mum (even if they were mainly work related), we had a weird talking relationship in 2012, spells of talking lots (mainly work) to no contact for weeks on end. I'm trying to re-evaluate things and put things back as they were and give her a bit of support when I can, this in turns means lots more conversations.
Booking holidays we've managed a couple of week breaks booked up to now - not sure how we will pay for them LOL - but they are booked!
Reading (although I want to throw the book out of the window as it's irritating me), but the book reading challenge Darcy has set which means I'm persevering despite my grumpiness with it!
Jamie Oliver's 15 minute meals book is still a big hit this week, we seem to be getting into a better eating pattern with said 12 year old and that's definitely a positive!
Hubby for helping me re-bleach my hair back to dizzy blonde rather than dull blonde which is what it had become!
A warm house, at this moment in time with the crazy mad weather outside it makes me happy to shut all the curtains, pop the heating on and snuggle up on the sofa!
On line friends - always a joy!
Options hot chocolate - yum!
Positive comments on my last few posts and some fabulous Rocking comments - thank you one and all!
Well my dears they are thin on the ground this week and I've had to dig deep - but that's what these posts are all about - some weeks filled with positives and others well like the above!
Right a little bit of crafting - a double page layout documenting a lovely evening when we stopped at Greystoke last year. A beautiful summers evening, said 12 year making up his own olympics, boots off and a bottle of wine - nothing finer!
