A life lately post means one thing. It’s the end of January – already! Time has flown by. I turned thirty two this month and celebrated with a trip to the Designs of the Year exhibition in London, Mexican food at home with a bottle of Prosecco and a meal with lovely friends who also celebrate January birthdays.
- Roasted red pepper and tomato soup
- Spring greens with butter and garlic because they are in season and incredibly good for us
- Nachos with refried beans, sour cream, guacamole, salsa, salad and cheese (new favourite dinner)
- Roasted sweet potato and carrot soup
- Homemade refried beans (my recipe!)
- Not enough home cooked food
Prawns and I haven’t been getting along; I think I may have an allergy. Eating them brings my face out in a rash and my mouth feels smaller. It’s something that has happened in the past but as I don’t eat them very often, I only put two and two together when I ate some again this month and ended up a very rashy face! Not to self: go easy on the prawns.
- New series of Silent Witness — good to have a bit of Monday gore again
- Sherlock series 4 — the series has been a bit too weird for me
- The Grand Budapest Hotel
- American Pickers
My new job at Automattic! I’ve been working towards it for a few months but kept pretty hush hush because I didn’t want to jinx anything. I’m very proud to be working for them and to part of such a nice team of people. From now on, I’ll mostly be wearing WordPress t-shirts ;)
It has finally felt like Winter! Has anyone else been enjoying the cold weather? I know a lot of people struggle through this time of year and feel human again when the Summer sun arrives, but for me, my body is much happier in the cold. The only thing I struggle with is getting out of bed in the morning when the house is chilly; I do love my bed.
Christmas and my birthday bought some great books my way. Just realised they’re nearly all food related. Can’t wait to read Just One More Thing!
Happy to share that the MRI results for my elbow injury came back normal. I’ve had quite a few problems with it after my cycling accident. Thankfully I got the all clear and just have to put up with it hurting until it heals.
Lots has been going on and although January is the year of ‘start as you mean to go on’, we haven’t been taking the best care of ourselves. At the beginning of the year I said I’d get up really early, do some exercise and make myself scrambled eggs for breakfast. Hah! No chance. I haven’t been sleeping well so I’d rather have sleep than eggs. Once we settle into a routine, we’ll hopefully be on top of things again.
That’s about all I’ve got for this month. Apart from… 339 sleeps until Christmas!!
