Happy new year!
We’ve been really lucky with the entire first week off school and I managed to wrangle a few extra days off (well, I had to work one day and it all came screaming back within about a nano second but ah well) so we’ve rinsed out some more lazy days. We managed to squeeze in a panto trip and had a little wander around the city centre. I haven’t been to a pantomime since I was 8 years old in a dusty old church which has long since burnt down. I’d completely forgotten what pantos were like with all the slapstick humour, the double entendres and all the colour. It wasn’t in a dusty old church this time but at the opera house and i think I’ve decided we definitely need to go see shows more often.
We haven’t really done anything much more than that other than enjoy our little bubble. Not even decluttering got done very well. I may have to save that for the rest of January. We did find out of some more impending new babies that are due to arrive this spring and summer, which takes the grand total to 8. What the heck has gone on to cause that mini baby boom in my circle? This might be the year of the newborn baby cuddles, which I’m really looking forward to (and then being able to give them back!).
It might also be the year where I open my eyes and admire the view a bit more. I must have walked past this shop for a few years and I’ve never noticed how old and pretty this window shop display is. The entire shop is ancient looking and I now regret not going in and having a good nosey. But look…how pretty!! I don’t really walk about staring at my phone but I must be half a daze to not notice little gems like this right in my path.
Alas, I guess it’s time to leave our little bubble and go back to school and work properly.
