Another new year
Well Rhian's Birthday, Christmas and New Year have come and gone already and I only have a few days left of my Christmas break. We all had a great Christmas, nice and relaxing without having to travel all over the place.
The girls got all the presents they asked for, Rhian is the proud owner of 2 gerbils and Kira a DS Lite. Katie has a nice new wedding ring and I have lots and lots of books.
January is probably my worst month so I've got to try especially hard to keep positive. We've got a weekend away in a cabin at the end of the month to give us all something to look forward to.
I don't think I'm the only one who struggles in January though, by all accounts lots of people feel down. After the highs of Christmas, there's usually nothing positive to look forward to until spring, the weather is cold, dark and gloomy, the days are short and you have to face all the tasks you put off until after Christmas.
I've also just had my eyes tested and now need a very small prescription in both eyes so have ordered some glasses.
