Obviously our anniversary weekend away to the Lake District was the major highlight of January, four years together was celebrated in our favourite place, making more memories, even if they were as simple as a walk along lake Windemere and the gorgeous snowy views. Also, to make up for the loss of festivities and excitement, I took the 'out with the old, in with the new' phrase quite literally and made a few pretty big purchases this month, upgrading both my car (FINALLY!) and my laptop ( this Acer number - loving it). My new car is an ever so gorgeous Ford Ka Zetec in white and I am well and truly in love, it feels good to actually have a working radio and working buttons on my car keys this time. Don't get me wrong, my little Corsa will always have a place in my heart but it was time to say goodbye. More highlights come in the form of cinema trips; one to see Dumb and Dumber 2, I'm still trying to decide if it was actually funny or just very, very weird and the other to see Taken 3 which, although I still enjoyed it, it definitely wasn't as good as the previous two, there was a lack of the typical Liam Neeson action but I suppose we can forgive him considering he's now at the age of 62 (yes you read right - sixty two!).
On the surface January was a good month, with things making me smile, such as a customer gifting me with a box of chocolates after finding her lost earring and the birthday party I attended with the girls and boys from work but there's something about January that just makes it seem a bit meh, and it seems to have left me dreaming of travel, maybe this is a sign that I should start making some plans. Here's to February, please bring us some warmer weather.
