January Happenings, February Plans

So,... in January I went to Jamaica.


Poor old KC doesn't always get a lot of say in out holiday destinations but he's had his eye on Jamaica for a few years now. We've put it off a bunch of times for a bunch of different reasons, but then we ran out of reasons to not go.... so we went!

It's not that I didn't want to go, I just thought... a week on the beach in the sun? Is it really 'me'?

Turns out it absolutely is!


I'll do a full post on our stay soon, but honestly it was absolutely heavenly. The sunshine was a much-needed tonic to the frankly depressing weather we've had here of late, and the relaxation was just what I needed to recover from an intense Christmas period and the stresses of work. I didn't know how much I needed that holiday 'til I was there!


That did mean that the rest of the month was relatively quiet. Time at home was spent getting the house back in order after Christmas. A couple of cinema trips and a trampolining session helped break up the month a little, but mainly on the weekends we were too tired and too cold to muster up much enthusiasm for going out!

Hopefully I can re-find that enthusiasm in February - I don't want the year to disappear while I wait for it to warm up (which it easily could!) We have made a mental commitment to finally decorate the eldest's room, and there's a lot of shifting and organising that needs to be done in there before we can get the paint out, so I'm sure that'll keep up plenty busy throughout February!

I do have a trip to Riga planned later in the month - it's my first trip away by myself in a really long time and I'm really excited (and a little bit nervous!)

How was your January? What have you got planned for February?

    1. It really can! It was hard to face up to the cold weather at home when we got back though!

  5. What a wonderful January! Riga seems quite popular at the moment... I know a couple from work have been in the past 12 months or so.

    1. It has that nice combination of being cheap, pretty, and not too far away that makes it perfect for a weekend getaway!
