Does anyone else feel like they just about wake up to the new year in February? We used to book holidays in January, just to get away from the post Christmas crash and dark and stormy nights. Now that Zs at school, that’s not really possible anymore so I feel like I pretty much just float through this entire month and not do anything productive. I *think* we’ve eaten a lot of food and I’m pretty sure I’ve just moaned about the gloomy weather for the rest of it.
Now that we’ve started to join in with the rest of the human race, I think it might be time to start thinking about where we might like to visit this year and dream about doing a million things even when we know there’s no way we’ll fit it all in or even afford to be able to do most of it. But it’s still lovely to dream and make big plans. I’d love to see lots of parts of Italy this year. I think we might manage a tiny snippet of it but both the scenery and the food look amazing. Closer to home I think we will be heading up to bonny Scotland again and discover more stunning bits of it. I would love to see the Cairngorms and Aberdeenshire with all it’s stunning castles and lochs. There’s no way we’ll be climbing big mountains but I quite like a road trip and they’re so perfect to keep nice and warm too no matter the weather so it doesn’t really matter if it’s raining or not.
We might even dare this year to take the toddler out a bit more, like tonight. He didn’t quite keep it down very much but it turned out ok. My nerves took it mostly well too….here’s hoping both get better as the year goes on!
