Joys In January

31 January 2018


I've made a slight change to my usual 'recently I have been' post and because I really want to start focusing on the positives this year, I've decided to start documenting the little joys in each month in a little end of month round up.

I feel like this has been a very long month, but overall (minus a slight case of the Winter blues and catching a cold this week), It's been a calm and quiet month. So without further ado here are my little joys in January!

Wholemeal Banana Bread

24 January 2018


It's been a while since I last shared a baking post! Looking back at last year I discovered lots of new recipes that I had found either online, in magazines or in some of my cookbooks and I had so much fun trying out all these new recipes and started to see a much more bigger improvement with my baking skills. I'm definitely looking forward to getting stuck into baking on a more regular basis again!

Frosty Wanderings & Winter Blues

17 January 2018


The past few weeks have been the gloomiest and coldest by far, with downpours of icy rain and temperatures that make me want to hide away indoors and cosy up to blankets and warm up to plenty of cups of tea.

A Quiet January & A Few Simple Goals

10 January 2018


It's been a quiet start to January so far. I've been slowly getting myself back into a routine again, working on some creative ideas and I've also started getting back into going for walks around the local area. January is usually a slow month for me anyway, but I like to spend these first few weeks organising through documents, de-cluttering and sorting through things to go to charity, rearranging for a clear space, starting my to-do lists and jotting down new fresh ideas in my notebook.

Happy New Year & A Little Catch Up

3 January 2018


It seems like ages since I last posted. It's been nice to have a little break away but I've definitely missed creating content for the blog! I didn't post as much as I had planned over the Christmas period. I had a couple of ideas for some festive content, but with things going on at work and me trying to rush about to do too many things at once, it just didn't seem work out and so I gave it a miss and took some time out to slow down.
