January is always just a bleurgh month for me.
I find it very hard to get inspired and motivated (however hard i try).
I’m sure it has something to do with the miserable weather, the pressure to start everything afresh on January 1st and the exciting but busy end to the year
but i tend to end up hibernating.
I find it hard to get any headspace in December to think about my new years resolutions or looking back over the amazing year. I always have great intentions but freeze a little with overwhelm. By the time we’ve got to the end of the month I feel like i have a better idea of what i want from the year. I am happy to see the end of January it has seemed to go on for a really long time. There is a lot of things planned for February, unfortunately more work than fun (though i admit i find my work fun) but there is a half Term which has the potential to have some adventure.
This month we haven’t been out as a family much, its been one or the other of us and at weekends we’ve been working so we just had a sofa photoshoot where we decided to have a little fun! My favourite one is the big group hug at the end.
