January has dragged at times, probably thanks to the lack of warmth and these dark mornings but I still feel like it’s gone so quickly! Looking back on the month, on everything I’ve managed to fit in; taking the first steps towards my 2017 goals (which I’m pretty happy about). I think this month has been a great start to the year, sure there’s a lot still too work on, but as far as things go I’m still so excited about 2017. Here’s what I’ve enjoyed the most about January.
- Brunching. I’ve always loved Brunch but as you can tell from our Instagram this month, its been a bit eggs and bacon heavy, but I couldn’t help it! I’ve become brunch obsessed. Last weekend we stopped in at Ormer and both ended up going for the bacon, egg and white onion flat bread (pictured above) and oh my days, it was like a giant breakfast pizza, which we quickly demolished and washed down with a latte.
- London. I was lucky enough to visit London, the city I once called home, twice this month. It was so much fun to get away, discover new spots, try new things and catch up with old faces. I managed to visit The Light salon for an LED facial which sorted out my troublesome skin in 24hours. The weather might have been cold and the skies grey but it didn’t stop me from exploring more and revisiting some of my favourite places.
- Tv Junkie. Cold evenings make it a lot easier to spend nights snuggles up watching box sets. This month we’ve made it through Start Up and Halt and Catch Fire. Both quite tech (Start Up less so) but I really enjoyed both series and hope that they’ll both be continued.
- Spending Time With Friends. It’s so easy to get stuck in a rut when it comes to meeting up with friends. Always seeing the same few faces and meeting in the same go to places. As lovely as I still find this… This month my best friend and I have an ongoing weekend date to just go on a walk. We’re picking a new new path each time, and it’s so lovely to spend time together doing something we would never normally do.
- The wood burner. We don’t use Danny’s wood burner in the summer but in January it’s a nightly necessity, it heats the whole cottage. Pixel spends his evening curled up by the foot of the fire and there’s nothing like the orange glow illuminated around the room. Danny chops the wood, and his own kindling and I tend to build the fire most of the time since Danny taught me. I love that together we can make a fire that heats us all. It’s a simple act that always feels very rewarding.
