Pickle says… We are at the end of January – how can that be possible? We are looking forward to half term already, but first, here are our highs and lows of January 2018….
Wet and windy mostly. Odd rare sunny, cold days. It has got much colder the last day or so.
The Saundersfoot New Years Day swim. We love this day, the atmosphere in the village is great and this year it was a lovely bright, sunny, crisp day. The village was packed. We had breakfast first before watching the swim then heading to my Nan and Grandad’s for the day.
I went bowling for the first time with some friends after a big lunch together in McDonalds. It was so much fun.
Mummy secured our first holiday of the year to Southbrook Country Park at Easter. We have asked Nana and Grandad to come with us too!
Mummy has a wonderful holiday to Italy planned, just her and my biggest sister MiMi.
Sister Lea had her first public gig as a solo artist. Mummy was SO proud of her.
Luke passed his Maths GCSE and had his Biology one.
Lea sent off her UCAS application for Uni and has her dates for her interviews / auditions. She wants to take a Degree in Creative Vocals.
Luke applied for a Creative Media college course for September.
I am reading so well, I love it and I am really good at it.
My cousin Matt was 22 on the 23rd and we all went for a fantastic birthday meal to celebrate.
Mummy caught up and watched Season 4 of Peaky Blinders. She is a little in love with Thomas Shelby! Season 5 is out in 2019 and already she can’t wait.
On 26th Lea had her first gig just her and her guitar at an open mic night. She was awesome!
We launched a couple of competitions – you can enter to win a Britax Car Seat here, and over on Instagram you can enter to win a £25 Amazon Voucher. You can also catch up on our adventures and photos.
My Great Nan was taken to hospital on New Years Day feeling poorly, then a couple of weeks ago she suffered a heart attack. As we write this she is still very poorly in hospital, but has done so well that she will probably go into a home. She can’t go to her home, but last week Mummy was told that she only had a few days to live.
Mummy, Luke and Leah watched the film ‘IT’ – and said it was very disappointing.
Mummy’s car needs a new gear box (she has zero luck with cars). It is a big, expensive job. Boo.
We haven’t really been anywhere because of the weather and Mummy’s poorly car, we have had quiet cosy weekends at home, and most evenings at home together too. It is the month for snugging down and keeping warm!
Mummy has been struggling to take decent photos, as the light and weather is so bad
How was your January?
