Please read my first A Little Bit Lately post to find out what these are all about, although I’m sure you get the idea. These have been inspired by Sometimes Sweet’s Currently posts so check her out if you like it!
I’ve started my reading challenge, A Year In Books for 2015 and have already read two books before the end of January, hooray!! I’ll write more about them at the end of the month but I read The Observations and The Miniaturist. I’ve been trying to make more time before I go to sleep to read a few chapters. I often get to bed and can easily spend half an hour on my phone; I’m sure it is much better for my mind to read instead so that is what I’ve been making an effort to do. Simple but effective!
We FINALLY finished Breaking Bad, I can’t believe we made it to the end without any spoilers! It was brilliant and left a void so asking around on twitter we decided on Peaky Blinders which I am just loving! We are about the start the second series and I just can’t get enough, it is beautifully filmed and well acted with a great soundtrack; I would highly recommend it. Also very pleased new series of Brooklyn 99 is out, never fails to make me laugh.
My husband bought me the new Foo Fighters album for Christmas so that has been going on a loop. It is a great album, I’ve really loved their last few after a spell when I could take it or leave it. It feels like they are just really enjoying making music again. Now I need to find the time to watch the Sonic Highways documentary.
I’ve been in a bit of a grump this month so I’m trying to think what I’ve been loving the most and it has to be Pinterest. I’ve always liked it but it has been the perfect bit of escapism for me at such a dismal point of the year. I’m pinning ideas to decorate our living room which I hope to do this year, new haircuts as I’m thinking of having a big chop in Febraury (eek!), there is always cake and inspiring quotes, lots of ideas for the boys bedrooms and a whole load of other things to make me smile. I’m so addicted at the moment, what do you love to pin? I’ve even got my husband using it; it is a big deal for him to accept a new form of social media, even if he only uses it to pin pictures of beards and pocket watches!
Spring…please hurry up! January has got to be the worst month and every year I just seem to dislike it more and more. I can’t motivate myself, I feel really tired, I’m fed up of being stuck in because it’s too cold for the children; I like to think I’m quite positive most of the time but this has definitely been a month for moping! I have decided I need to buy myself some spring flowers like tulips to cheer myself and remind myself spring will soon be here!
