And I guess that's why they call it the blues..

Hello February, as always I am ever so pleased to see you. I know I'm not the only one who gets the January blues but blimey they seemed to go on forever this year. I'm sat here drinking my cuppa and pondering what it is that makes January such a dull month and have come up with the following: After months of planning for Christmas it's over in a flash. All the pretty lights and decorations are put away in their boxes, jeans are a little tighter on the belly (queue the leggings), not to mention how empty our bank accounts look, all in all it's pretty rubbish. And then there's the darkness. Even though we've had the shortest day, it's still dark and dingy when you get up in the mornings, and just as bad when you leave work, so you feel like you miss all of the day light, apart from what you can see out of the office window that is. It's just pretty rubbish really. 
Then there are the little surprises that come your way, like getting to two days before payday, feeling the excitement creeping in, and then your car breaking down and the realisation that you're going to be just as skint in February as you were in January kicks in, yayyyy (sarcasm!!).

So needless to say I'm pleased to see the back of January. February is already starting off nicely, I'm house and cat sitting for my Dad this weekend so it's like going for a weekend away to a country retreat. I fully intend to get the log fire going, have numerous hot chocolates, finish some craft projects, and take a well deserved trip to the beach to blow away the cobwebs. I will also be facing one of my fears and sticking my hand in a cats mouth. You see before I met Rich I used to have a massive fear of Cats. I don't know why, it was just something about how they look at you like they want to pounce and stick their claws in. Anyway one of the cats is on medication so I will be hand feeding her tablets twice a day, wish me luck. 

What are your plans for the weekend? I hope you all manage to get out and enjoy the sunshine and fresh weather. Dafodils and Crocus' are starting to appear so spring is well and truly on it's way YIPEEE!!!

Have a good one.



  1. I never knew you had a fear of cats! You wouldn't do well in my house :) I don't mind January, new start & all that, I just wish the days & weeks would slow down. I can't believe a whole month of 2013 has passed already :( xx

    1. I've had to conquer it when Rich & I got together, he has 6 cats. I don't mind most of them, I get a bit twitchy when they pussy foot on me but other than that I'm doing ok. I've even hand fed Julie's cats and one of them is definitely evil.
      I thought last year went fast, i think it's a sign of things to come :( xx
