Nine Positives in January


Hello, hello! I hope you are all having a wonderful February so far and are looking forward to longer sunshine hours just like me. It took so long to get us to Feb as January really is a long slog isn't it? Now that Feb is here, I feel like it's flying by crazy fast! One thing I need to do more of is focus on the positives. I've started to write them down each month in my BuJo but I thought you might like to hear about them too. I absolutely love reading these sorts of posts because you can really tell how uplifted the person feels after writing down a load of positives. So here's my round-up:

1. We started puppy classes and I taught Pepper how to give me her paw. She's only five months old and we were shaking hand and paw within twenty minutes - I was well impressed!

2. I signed up to a new gym and doctors. I have recently moved to a new area away from home so this was a very positive start to the year. I want to look after myself a bit better this year and get back in to swimming as it's something I've always loved. 

3. Date Night at The Unicorns Head in Langar. Stu and I have agreed that we will have at least one date night a month. We are aiming for on or around the 19th of each month as this was the date of our first date and I think that's pretty cute. 

4. Games Night with Friends. I blumin' love a games night in and it's so much fun. We have bought Hot Seat recently which is so much fun, especially when you really know the people you're playing with. We have also got the kids game 'Dobble' which is so addictive and really brings out my competitive side. 

5. Completed Peaky Blinders. Stu and I are OBSESSED with this programme. We tried to get tickets to an event in Birmingham but it was so popular that it sold out straight away so we've decided we are going to try and create our own Peaky Blinders event in the future! I cannot believe it's not back on until 2019.

6. Smashed my social media goals. Last month I gave myself targets to hit for January and I surpassed most of them by A LOT. I was so shocked. I've really been working hard on engagement so I guess it's paying off. The one I need to work on is Pinterest - if you have any tips on how to grow a Pinterest following, I am all ears! 

7. Booked our holiday to Gran Canaria. I am so looking forward to getting some sun this year. I've never been to the Canary Islands but I've heard Gran Canaria is the most romantic out of the lot. It is literally going to be a cocktail, poolside and beach holiday and I can't wait. 

8. Reduced outgoings by a lot! I can't quite believe I have been driving for over a year and did not expect my insurance to drop so much. Stu and I are planning on being a bit more cautious with money as I've gone part-time to pursue my creative work and we would like to buy a bigger house at some point in the future. 

9. Greek Night for Mum and G-dad's birthdays. This was so much fun and threw me right back to holidays in Greece with my family. They had live Greek music on and our waiter became live entertainment with his fab dancing.

What was positive in your January? Have you got anything lined up for February? 😊

  1. I love this! It sounds like you have lots of positive things happening in your life. I went to Tenerife with my boyfriend last year and I can confirm that it is the most BEAUTIFUL place, I wish I could go back ever year.

    January really was a slog wasn't it? I went to a wedding on Saturday which was a lovely way to start February!
