How long does this month feel? It really has been the longest month ever. January always seems to be very slow, why is that? The lull of that after christmas feel is still very much with us and I am excited to welcome Febuary next week! Without too much waffling her are some of my Little Loves for January.
I started a new book this month. My goal for 2019 was to read more, and Ive barely read one book. The book I have started though has me hooked. Its called Close to Home by Cara Hunter. I have heard great things about it. I have snuck of to bed early quite a few times this week to plough through it. So far so good and I am really enjoying it.
A few blog posts I have read this month are
Morgana’s last Little Loves
Naomi’s post about mothers who mess up
Chole’s 2018 memories
January has been a good month for TV. I have watched a lot and loved a lot. The winter months always brings some good TV with it.
Cleaning Up – I am currently on episode 2 and really enjoying this. I really love Sheridan Smith, but I detest her character. I just want to shake her and tell her she is making a huge mistake. Its a good drama to snuggle up to in the evening with a blanket and hot chocolate!
Manhunt – This was such a good drama about Levi Bellfield. It scared me just how much this man was capable of. Martin Clunes was brilliant and I would really recommend it if you have not seen it already. I am certain its still available on catch up.
The Crown – I am rewatching the series as I made James watch it. I love it and its even better the second time round as I am finding I am picking things up that I didn’t notice when I watched it first time. I am so excited for season three and the change in characters. Honestly if you have not watched it then you really should.
Ava Max – I have listened to Sweet But Pysco on repeat for the last week. There is something really very catchy about it. It always seems to be playing on the radio in the car whenever I get in it. So its wonder Ive had it stuck in my head this month
Toto – We were finishing the kitchen off this month and James had his playlist on and Africa played. Its definitely up there as one of my favourites. I swiftly popped it on my playlist and have listened to it more times in the past month than I have ever heard it.
Chilli – My taste buds have changed so much as I have got older. I was never a spicy food kind of gal when I was a child. This month saw me make a chilli, and eat it! I made it all from scratch and didn’t make it too hot. I have to say I really enjoyed it, so ended up making it again throughout the month! Winter warmer at its best.
Decisions – We made the decision to get Fluer spayed this month. Actually it happened this week and she is recovering nicely. She really doesn’t cope well when she is in season and becomes quite protective of everything. I am hoping she will be back to her normal lily self in a week or so. Its a bit strange her being so quiet and down. She has been loving the extra cuddles and pampering she has received though!
We finally have a fully functioning kitchen! January saw us complete the mammoth task of renovating it. Its been such a long hard slog. We are all enjoying eating together as a family at a proper dining table and I am enjoying having the kitchen of dreams! My favourite part has to be the mini-bar area I created! Its too tempting!
I am looking forward to seeing you all link up in February! Have a wonderful month ahead.
