What has made me smile in December!??!!

I know December and particularly Christmas can be a tricky time of the year for some people, I really hope if that is you that you were able to find small things to smile at this month.

Here are ten things that made me smile this month:

1.       Visiting my beautiful big niece at university was wonderful, I still can’t quite believe she is at uni…… so grown up…… so proud of her!

2.         Christmas artspot arts and craft workshop, we were really pleased with how it went and the feedback we received. xmas Collage.jpg

3.       Little precious family moments……… a cozy cuddle in bed……. singing Christmas carols together………having breakfast together…………priceless!   

4.       A really thoughtful text from Mr Lee……. actually it made me cry but smile at the same time!

5.    Reading “A man called Ove” by Fredrick Backman best book I have read in sometime! Highly recommend! img_20170102_091321

6.       A walk in the woods……… well needed fresh air…….. blew those cobwebs away! img_20161227_152349

7.       Spending time with friends and family over the Christmas season, we are very blessed people!

8.       Tom……….. his magic tricks in the bath………the way he bounces when he is excited…… his joy at choosing a Christmas tree and decorating it………. the joy of finally being “Star of the week” at school………. his performance in his school nativity……… him singing “Last Christmas” on the top of his voice………the hugs he gives when he has received a gift……..smile! img_20161226_231804

9.      Mulled wine, I just love it!

10.   Wrapping up warm and heading to the beach as the sun goes down on New Year ’s Eve, followed by amazing fish and chips in the chippy……… the best goodbye to 2016 ever! img-20161231-wa0003

Look ahead to January…………….

January is often a “blue” month, so I am going to try to plan some of my favourite things…. trips to woods, time with friends, reading and long baths. In my quest to live thoughtfully I have signed up to a free e course entitled “A simple start to the year” by the Blogger Mel Wiggins to help me focus.  

Thanks for reading, hope you had a great December and that January brings you a great start to the New Year.

Happy New Year everyone xxx
