What I am thankful for in January 2020

January was a long month wasn’t it!

I felt like it went on for eternity, long days, tiredness, trying to get back into routine. We only had 2 weeks off so I don’t know why it took so long to recover. From what I was reading on social media, we weren’t the only ones struggling.

I have eaten lots and not really exercised but there is always something to be thankful for,

  1.  Chocolate. We had loads of yummy treats to finish off eating
  2.  Dark evenings. I love nothing more than curling up on my sofa hibernating from the world in the evenings
  3.  Winter clothes are looser so they are perfect from hiding the weight I have put on
  4. I have a bookshelf! Well a little unit that fits all my books on. I am so happy!
  5.  Winter food. stew and dumplings, chilli on carne, spaghetti bolognese, jacket potatoes – all delicious winter food
  6.  I got to watch Mary Poppins in Theatre with a friend, no kids, just us. It was brilliant!

So now that January is done. I am looking forward to seeing what February brings.

What was you grateful for in January?

    I bet Mary Poppins at the theatre was so much fun! I do love a winter stew.

    January definitely went on for a long time. I’m really grateful for being able to take my youngest daughter for a little break and get some quality time with her

    Oh yes! What a lovely list of things to have been thankful for. I’m the same, though we haven’t seen Mary Poppins yet. It’s on my list though. Happy February!

    I must admit January is not my favourite month. Although my husband did have a big birthday at the end of it. I am like you and love the comfort food we eat this time of year. x
