February is here, we survived January, can you believe it is February already, I swear I blinked and missed it all.
January has been an okish month for us, my parents celebrated their 51st wedding anniversary, what an achievement.
C has had a tough month, with being in a crash for most of it, and hardly being able to go to school, but it seems that they are all suffering at the moment, so must be the time of year that is affecting them. We have our appointment with her new consultant in a few weeks, lets hope he can help her a bit more.
My 18 year old is driving me mad at the moment, he comes in from work with a face on, he is tired due to being up late chatting to his girlfriend and friends, winds me up over his dinner and then raids the fridge and cupboards for food to take to work with him, I honestly have never seen someone have so much food, I am now having to hide things from him in order that we all have some food.
Just over 10 weeks until, we fly off to Cape Verde, I am now back exercising and dieting, I am currently on a low carb diet, as having suffered IBS for many years, I have now decided to try this, which if I am honest is not much different to my usual diet, as we do eat healthily anyway, but can say although early days, I can feel a difference and a lot less bloated, even my husband is supporting me and happily eating the same as me, obviously for C I have to either do her something else or change it slightly (she is not only fussy but limited due to how she is feeling and her jaw), and S well I do extra carbs for him. I have tried a few lovely recipes that so far have got the thumbs up and am doing a totally new recipe each day next week, if I get on ok I will share our meals and how we are getting on.
We have celebrated my husbands birthday this month, had a disastrous night away at a hotel, and then out for the most amazing afternoon tea (with limitless prosecco) on his birthday, it really was lovely and something we have never done before. It is also our friends birthday (today) and another friends birthday last Saturday, so celebrated all their birthdays with a lovely meal out and a few drinks. Was such a great night and a time to let our hair down and forget about everything, although I am still catching up on sleep.
This month, is looking busy both on my blog and personally, so I will probably blink and find it is March already.
Do you find the months go a lot quicker than they used to?
How has your January been, hopefully you have had a good one x
