January is a strange month, start of the year, new hopes and goals.. For us it was never going to be a straight run after all that had happened over Christmas so we decided to use the month to adjust, start implementing new plans and begin to get our life back on track. Are we there yet, not quite and will remain to be seen but we are making in roads and that, at least is a good thing.
I looked at some of our goals last night, some ticked off the list, some not but coming out of January I feel pretty happy with where our family is headed.
The biggest thing to happen was I am changing jobs. Eek It’s been a long time coming and whilst I really love the people I work with and they have been great an opportunity arose that I couldn’t turn down. That opportunity was balance. By some small miracle a position came up in a very reputable company for a job share role. It wasn’t something I could turn down, the process had been happening for a while and all came together mid January. It brings back the balance our family so badly craves. It gives me an opportunity to work and focus on where this blog can go but I still get my independence and a good routine for our family. I am very lucky I know but I think life brings you clangers but eventually you get a break and we are grabbing it with two hands.
So February is the start of spring, hope and brighter days. Our health regime is kicking in and the final spring clear out will be complete. We have a few nice plans with friends, I am off to London and a bit of romance with the Hallmark holiday that is Valentine’s Day-we need it after everything so a bottle of bubbles will be popped and our future toasted to good times ahead.
Josh’s social calander is filling up too with some plans:
We have him booked for another splatter day with Messy Monkeys, the first week in February. We are booking him in for a Rugby Tots trial the following week. Then later in the month we want to start him in swimming lessons ahead of our summer holiday in May-he’s getting a bit brave for my liking! We love weekend activities with him and I also am looking forward to getting back to the farm and some park play dates now hopefully the weather will start to get better!
I am starting to get excited about what I can start to do with the blog, new regular posts like dinner ideas, easy outfits that I hope will be well received. The future is bright and I am excited for what now lies ahead!
