Apologies for the lack of blog posts so far this year, it's been a little bit manic since the 1st and we seem to have been here there and everywhere. It was lovely visiting family over the New Year weekend and we had a good catch up with everyone. Both of us are very tired though; Jack only got Christmas Day and Boxing Day off and has been back at work ever since with the exception of this past weekend because we were visiting family. It's very busy at their work this time of year now that next season's Formula 1 cars are being designed and built - lots of new parts for Jack to make.
I really enjoyed the break over Christmas, actually managed to get some proper sleep and loved being able to take Barry for long walks in the day light! He loved being centre of attention at the New Years party Jack's parents held at their house and then he loved all of the walks along the beach when we got to my Parents on New Years Day, we even met a Grey Seal (more about that when I get around to blogging properly).
My New Years outlook of "put your positive pants on!" is being seriously tested now that I'm back at work; a staff member left just before Christmas and their work has been added to my list of duties "for the meantime.." so my smiley positive persona is slipping just a little as I try and get everything done, though I promise I am trying my hardest not to let everything get the better of me (not this early into the year!).
Just keep swimming, just keep swimming...
More blog posts to follow when I have time; I've got some lovely photos from our time back in Cambridgeshire and Norfolk and want to hopefully reveal a few of my crochet project plans for 2016. We also had a lot of laughs playing the game 'Heads Up' with my parents, brother and his girlfriend - it's an app you can download on your phone or ipad and provides lots of entertainment! I'm very proud of my mum who has taken up loom knitting since Christmas! She's going to make me a bobble hat out of some reflective wool she's got - perfect for my night time dog walks!
Have a good day everyone!
