Another year has begun and already we are at the end of the first month. I'm not going to go on and on about how fast the year seems to be pass this year though. I'll focus on making every moment we have together as memorable as possible. It may be something amazing or it may be something as simple as an afternoon at a local coffee shop having some cake. Our photos this month aren't great because we used my phone and we had it on "selfie mode". I'm seriously considering getting a selfie stick.
After a full two weeks off at Christmas, I was ready to go back to college on January 5th. I had a closed book assessment on health and passed it. I had two reports to hand in which I passed and all my other work from the first semester had been handed in before Christmas and passed. This month has been a pretty easy ride for me at college. Until Monday just gone that is. Semester 2 has begun and already I have a lot of work to do. However I think if I just keep chipping away at it, doing the work as I get it, I'll be fine. I'll cope.
Husband enjoyed his Christmas break and was raring to go (well maybe not!) back to work. Once he was back it felt like he had never been away. We celebrated his birthday this month with a meal with very good friends. It was a really fun and tasty night. Then, on his actual birthday, the kids and I took him to Frankie & Bennys for dinner.
I don't think Z was too fussed about going back to school since he was enjoying all the time he had to do what he wanted to do. Having said that, he's working hard as always and continues to do well at school. He's enjoyed having play dates with his best friend where they've been comparing notes on the Beano annuals and Minecraft.
Whilst Z wasn't too fussed about going back to school, Miss C really wasn't that keen. She loves being at home and being around all of her toys and cuddly pets. However she must have been doing well as she got Pupil of the Week! She has also been enjoying the free school meals all children in Primary 1- 3 get in Scotland now. She's not a huge packed lunch fan so she's been loving having a hot lunch meal every day. Miss C had a play date this month too with her best friend. They dressed up and played Princesses. They were so cute!
