February hasn’t been a very good month for me. I have been suffering with depression and SAD. I have been finding it quite hard to motivate myself to do anything. It doesn’t help that money has been virtually none existent this month, with my car tax and insurance both due.
We all should have gone to Young Vanish to do a restaurant review. But we had to cancel as it snowed. My husband Des, said it would be fine, as we heard that the main roads where clear. I went slow driving of our estate, but when we got to the main road we was behind a fire engine. And it started to skid across the road! So I thought, that’s it, am going back. We live in a cul-de-sac and it has a little hill to go up to get onto it, and my rubbish car really struggled with the snow. We was sliding everywhere and I thought we wouldn’t get up it. It was scary. So that’s it now. I am never driving in the snow again! We did re-booked the restaurant, but then both me and the kids got ill. So we had to cancel again.
We did have a great pancake day though!
The kids love Pancake day and we were sent out some goodies from Num Noms to have a pancake challenge. Caitlin won the challenge we had by adding marshmallows and candy floss to her pancakes.
Half term as been ok. I have spent most of my time inside, feeling a bit blue. But the kids have really enjoyed being off school and they had quite a few things sent to us to review. They got some hair chalks which will be on my blog soon, along with some Playmobil Easter Eggs, Dozy Dogs and Paddington 2 dvd.
Paddington 2 isn’t out till Monday, so we were really lucky in getting to review it. Look out for the review on the blog next week. We had a movie night and had loads of yummy treats. Aaron enjoyed eating some new Haribos which we got from February’s Degustabox (review soon!) and sampling some delicious milkshakes from Shaken Udder (review soon + giveaway!). We love our family movie nights and have them at least once a month.
I was looking forward to the kids going back to school after half term as my house looks a mess and I like to get back into my routine. But no such luck, as they have been home since Tuesday because of the snow.
They have really enjoyed playing out and going sledging with their dad. And I am grateful that I have been able to have a bit of me time and get some blog work done.
The 1st of March was my eldest, Ryan’s 13th birthday. We didn’t do anything, he just got a cake, (which was delicious). He was supposed to be going to laser quest this weekend with his friends but we have had to postpone it until next weekend because of the snow.
My #LittleLoves of the month
I have read a great book called The Self-Care Revolution. I have also read a couple of thrillers. You can see my review of them all here. I am currently reading Wonder by R. J. Palacio.
I have watched a few films. Paddington 2 (review will be on my blog next week). Baywatch – the film, that is. Quite good, an ok watch. But the programme I was every week is Casualty. Really loving it at the minute.
I have been making my famous pop-pom monsters, otherwise know as Quiet Critters. I have had a few orders for these on my Etsy and I have been trying to play catch up.
I have been wearing nothing but my pyjama’s the most of February. I actually own more pj’s then I do ‘normal’ clothes. As soon as I am in the house, I whip of my clothes and stick my trusty pj’s on.
Not much new really. I love listening to #ThrowbackThursday on Spotify.
I am hoping March is a bit better for me. Trying to balance blogging, which is my job, and taking time out for myself so I don’t get too overwhelmed. It’s just 3 weeks till the kids break up from school again for Easter, so hoping to get as much work done as possible then have a bit of time off then.
What have you been doing in February. Let me know in the comments.
