As January comes to an end (finally), I wanted to share some of my favourite things from the month. New Years Day seems to have been months ago and isolation schooling certainly isn’t making anything go faster, but there have been little things that have made the month enjoyable, from a good read to tasty snacks. Here are some of my little loves from the month.
Read – A Brief History of Seven Killings
Watch – Gilmore Girls
I decided to start watching Gilmore Girls from the beginning and it was a great choice. The show is familiar, easy going and feels like coffee with an old friend. It was the light tonic I need when the news is so dire, I could sit and colour in as I watched and I was sad when it ended. There aren’t many shows I watch more than once but I am already looking forward to the next time I start Gilmore Girls.
Wear – Owl and the Pussycat Jumper
Listen to – Lucas Graham
My children get a song in their heads and then listen to it on repeat for the next month. This month was apparently the month for Lucas Graham. I am pretty sure Archie now knows all the words to 7 Years, in fact he typed them out on his online learning instead of answering the question at one point. If they aren’t asking Alexa to play it, they are singing their own (incredibly loud) version.
Drink – Baileys Orange
Eat – Mini Eggs Dairy Milk
It took me a long time to get hold of this after finding out about its existence. Lockdown means less time in shops of course, but when I eventually got hold of some, I bought a few bars in anticipation of it being delicious. It is. I don’t want to guess at how many bars I have eaten this month, but my hiding places are running low.
I would love to hear about what has made you smile this January, either as a comment below or over on social media!
