How is the first month of the new year going for you? have you worked out your word? stuck to your resolution or diet and decided how you will change the world over the next twelve months? I don't know about you but I hate the beginning of the year when all the magazines talk about is diets and resolutions and how we must all change, I refuse to play and stick to reading my wonderful pile of books I got for Christmas instead. Things are slowly returning to routine here, Alice is madly writing essays and planning her dissertation, wondering what she is going to do with the rest of her life once she graduates in July. Harry is enjoying re connecting with all his school friends after his first six months at university, they will both head back for another term in the next couple of weeks but until then I am enjoying every moment of the mess and a full house.
