First week of January

first week of january

The first week of January seemed to fly by. The kids didn’t go back to school until Wednesday and then it was soon the weekend. Getting back to normal was a little difficult last week. But it is the start of a new week so I can finally get back to normal.

My house seems to still be upside down from Christmas. There are still presents that need to be unpackaged and find a new place to live around the house. My house could do with a complete overhaul.

I have mentioned a few times in some of my bucket lists that I wanted to join skillshare and learn some new crafts. Well, the hubby signed me up for my Christmas present so I will admit that most of my time will probably be spent going through the videos and classes on there for most of the year. I have been practising my water colouring and want to improve my artistic skill.

This year I have also decided I am going to be doing most of my grocery shopping at Aldi or Lidl. I usually get an Asda delivery every week but have found that it seems to be getting more expensive and am easily spending £80-£100 a week on food and am not even sure where it is going. Last week my food shopping came to £60 and that included toilet roll for a month, cat food for a month coffee for a month and some other bits that won’t need replacing for at least a month.

You will all be glad to know that I have been reading over the past week. Something I have not done in a long time but has been meaning to make a regular monthly thing. I have finished Being Brooke by Emma Hart a book I have been reading for so long. I have also read Tank By M.Malone.

This month has started off well. How has the start of your New Year been? How was your first week of January?
