January Monthly Round-Up {2017}

I can’t believe it’s already time to write the first monthly round-up post of the year. January has been one of those months that has both dragged but flown by at the same time. I’m not sure how that’s possible but that’s how it’s seemed.

January has been a pretty good month, staying positive has definitely helped keep the January blues at bay. We haven’t got out as much as I had hoped. The weekends have been busy with sorting and decluttering instead. It’s only as we have come to the end of the month that we are succumbing to all the colds and coughs of the Winter season. As I type this Daisy is off school poorly snuggling with her blanket.

I’m looking forward to February, we have a birthday to celebrate, Valentine’s day, parents’ evening and a half term. I better get some planning done.

January Monthly Round-Up

  • We started our post-Christmas declutter.
  • Jake & Chris both had radical haircuts!
  • I got a much-needed haircut.
  • My January no spend challenge was a success.
  • Some fantastic prizes arrived.
  • I enjoyed meeting friends for coffee at the loveliest quirky little coffee shop.
  • We have enjoyed lots of tasty winter warming comfort food.
  • Chris spent some time away on a training course with work.
  • Jake began potty training.
  • We’ve wrapped up warm & enjoyed some park and forest visits.
  • Daisy has learned how to read lots of new words.
  • I have been all about the cosy this month.
  • We’ve celebrated some frugal wins.
  • I’ve joined lots of linkies & kept up with them as well as hosting a linky with my lovely friend Rachel Swirl.
  • Our Grandson Olly slept over.

    I love your idea about keeping track of things you did each month! I’ve started doing it too and even though I thought January was a pretty slow month, we did more than I remembered at first. Which made me feel much better instantly 🙂 #TuesdayTreasures
