January Roundup

Well..what a long drawn out month January was.  For me it really was a little glum ,mainly  because I had a little accident and wrote my lovely car off... my children and I all had the nastiest cough ever and the baby pushed out teeth 2-8 in 4 weeks ( and fell to pieces and sat for days on my lap..which I secretly enjoyed really! !)..and the weather was horrid..we even had snow. How ever I did manage several little crafty projects. I even attempted to knit mittens which involved 4 needles.It was my first step to getting around to knitting a pair of socks the idea of which has always intimidated me so far but now it is going to happen, I can feel it ,even though it might just be a pair of baby socks to start with.... There was a birthday . 10 years . I,m still a bit in shock about that .  How ??  I,m holding on to every precious moment I have with them and savouring it all.
February is almost here and i,m pulling my apathetic socks up because it.s getting me down ..all this glumness,  enough already . (it was only a car..a thing ..nothing will be replaced,  hopefully soon )
February and a little more light I welcome thee !

Phew........well we did it again,another Xmas waited for with such excitement and impatience...well for the children that is and now before you can say  Jack Rabbit it is all behind us for another year...phew.. I will be more organised next year..but does that mean I have to start thinking about it now ?? I really missed making little pressies this year as I ran out of time and it just didn,t feel quite the same.  Never the less it was still very lovely cosying up with the family and taking it easy.
