January blues

So I've officially run out of steam for anymore christmas related posts now. I'm sure you get the gist of it by now anyhow.

January is always a tough month, for many reasons. Money is always tight in January. If you are like me, you'll feel chubby, bloated and gross after the overindulgence that is obligatory in December. The weather is crap. Failed resolutions that we make on New Years are shaming us with guilt. And, of course, the bugs. I don't mean little crawling insects - I mean, bugs. Germs. The lurgy.

This month has had its ups and downs. The downs are easy to dwell on. Me and the kiddies have been more ill than I care to think about. Logan is currently poorly with tonsillitis, Rori with a cough and cold and me with a throat infection. I want to get away from this horrible weather and book a nice holiday somewhere hot, sunny and foreign. I wish money didn't exist so that I didn't worry about it. And I just wish I would get out of my own head too.

But this month has also had its bright side that I have to force myself to remember. Lucky Sew and Sew has had it's busiest month of all time. Considering its January, I'm really surprised at that. And very proud. I had set myself a small goal of hitting 800 followers on Instagram which I have succeeded in too. Logan settled into preschool really well and loves attending. Rori has cut her first 4 teeth. So it's actually been a pretty good month when I look at this side of things.

It's my 25th birthday next week. I think I'm having a quarter life crisis. Yes, these exist, no shit. I'm not looking forward to turning 25 at all.

I've finally found the time to cut out my Marilla Walker Roberts Collection dungarees and I can't wait to sew them up. I'm hoping to wear them when I go for my first night out since I got pregnant with Rori (July 2015!!) for my birthday next weekend. I have hopes of grandeur - lots of wine, spirits, dancing and the rest of it. In reality it will probably be two glasses of wine, one shot, and off to bed mate. Such a lightweight.
