Happy Days Linky, The Lull After Christmas

So back to work this week, back into a routine I had enjoyed the break so much that I was dreading getting into a routine again. But actually you just get straight back into it don’t you? I have been busy planning for the year ahead to drive away the post-Christmas blues. There is so much to look forward too I couldn’t possibly be fed up.

So here goes.

Out & About.

We had a lovely family walk on Sunday, it’s so great to get out and about with the family, breathe in that fresh country air and look at the spectacular views. We also had a couple of sneaky wine a lovely country pub before trecking back home.

Its been great having a chilled Sunday afternoon at home, the Boys were both engrossed in their x boxes. And I had a chilled afternoon cooking a roast dinner and listening to Elaine Paige on radio 2. I love shows and the opportunity to sing along on a Sunday afternoon

Time For Me

On one of my afternoons off I spent the whole afternoon blogging without anyone asking for help, talking to me of arguing around me. I love family life but it really was bliss getting a little blogging time. Its been lovely to be able to think whilst blogging, Christmas has been so manic and wonderful, however it’s not easy blogging in chaos.

Watching the Boys faces this week at the Burnley match. They love football and their beloved Burnley,  they have had a tough run this year. So when they scored they were jumping and cheering and just so so happy. They came out of the match on such a high because they won. It was wonderful so see the passion they feel for their team and how happy Burnley winning made them. I am glad I was there to share it with them


Next Week I would Love To Try

At the end of this week we are visiting the Queens Q Hotel in Leeds, the second in our Q Journey. I am so excited, the hotel looks fantastic. And the people from Q have so far been the loveliest kindest people. So the weekend can only be great.
