So at the beginning of the year, I said I was going to take time for myself to reflect back on each month. I thought I'd share some of the changes that have happened during January - both good & bad.
It has been a troubling month for me, so I'm very glad it's over. It's never a favourite month of mine - it seems to drag out forever and it's always SO cold! Because of the coldness factor, I decided to book a holiday in the sun for myself. Come March, I will be lying around doing nothing for 6 days - I'm excited and scared about going solo, but I'm sure it'll be good for me, and hopefully a very relaxing holiday.
Coming back to Bristol was difficult after Christmas, as I'd had such a lovely, quiet time. Time to gather my thoughts and listen to myself more. This resulted in me addressing my unhappiness, and having a few talks with Doug, ultimately leading to separate bedrooms & then a break up. It was incredibly tough deciding to take that step, but I'm trying to put my happiness first, so it had to be done. We're endeavouring to remain best friends, and we are still living under the same roof, so all is not lost.
A much happier and very exciting thing that happened just over a week ago, is that niece number 2 was born! You may have seen this photo of us having a lovely snuggle. I went down to meet Pippa just after the break up, and her and Evelyn were just the best people to cheer me up. How do little people just know? It won't be long before Pippa is up and running around and chatting away like her big sister, so I'm going to try to get down for lots of quiet cuddles while I still can!
Other than those things, life has been working, eating & drinking too much, and being totally absorbed by my feelings, so I hope you can excuse me for being a little absent from the online world. However, I did manage to blog about a few things, and here are my 3 favourites:
How has your January been? Anything exciting planned for Feb?
