I was meant to write this post much earlier today but I’ve not been all that well and am currently sat up in bed with a raging temperature, paracetamol, a large drink and a box of tissues at my side. I will therefore be keeping this post brief as my bed calls.
Without further ado (or any further sneezing over my Macbook) here are some of my #LittleLoves from January 2020.
I’d love to tell you that I’ve been reading piles of books this month but in all honesty, I’ve been too busy keeping up to date with the news. There’s so much going on recently with politics, World health issues, environmental issues and such-like, though I’ll tell you fiction is far nicer than fact at present.
With my much-loved Aussie-soap returning to channel five, I’ve really enjoyed being ‘back in the bay’ each evening. Along with Home & Away I’ve also been enjoying the latest series of Cold Feet along with a few movies (such as ‘Stranger Than Fiction’ which I was recommended to watch and would now much recommend myself) and series on Netflix.
I’ve also found myself rather hooked upon watching Ben Kavanagh’s daily blogs from Wuhan, though he is now in the UK in isolation for a fortnight I’m hoping he will continue to keep us all up to date on his progress.
I love how this guy is so settled, so relaxed and so down to earth considering the coronavirus chaos which he has found himself amidst. I also love how he wasn’t willing to return to the UK unless he could be absolutely sure that he wouldn’t be able to infect anymore – what a legend!
January hasn’t been an easy month emotionally, thus I’ve listened to quite a lot of Tori Amos – my ‘go-to girl’ when things get tough. I tend to listen to her live-work rather than album recordings, I much prefer the raw and real sound of her voice rather than digitalised, re-worked recordings.
Other than a batch of sticky toffee pudding, I’ve baked very little of late. I really ought to get back into my baking but I’ve been too busy running around taking care of the kids, my husband (who has been really poorly) and now myself so it seems…
Though we are yet to see snow, it’s still fa-fa-freezing outside. I’ve therefore invested in some new winter wear. Whereas I’d usually stick to black, grey or sullen shades, I ditched the dark for dazzling with my new ‘mellow yellow’ hat and scarf.
As I said it’s not been an easy month, our son underwent surgery just after the new year and his recovery was a little rocky, to say the least. He certainly kept us on our toes and gave us a good scare of two.
Thankfully J is now fully recovered and that is my highlight of the month – it’s all I wished and prayed for was to have my little boy feeling better and back to himself.
Thanks again for reading my blog and I hope that you enjoyed this month’s #LittleLoves. If you fancy sharing some of your own #LittleLoves, then why not join in either through your own blog post or by leaving a comment below, I would love to hear what your #LittleLoves might be.
