Things That Have Bought Me Joy In January

Although we’re in Lockdown, I’ve had a pretty good month overall. Our beautiful little puppy entered our lives at the end of the year!
Any who, here’s a recap of January joys.

Binge watched Bridgerton and Bling Empire. Netflix has some pretty decent TV shows on there at the moment, I binge watched Bridgerton and Bling Empire in just a few days. Simon is HOT STUFF!

Archie. Our beautiful miniature dachshund has made our lives so much better. He’s the cutest puppy and I’m SO happy we got him. He went on his first short walk on Saturday and we were SO proud haha.

Home made soups/stews. I’ve been on a health kick since the 2nd of January and although I keep putting on weight, I’ve been enjoying having healthy home made soups and stews for lunch.

Home made pizzas in our ooni pizza oven. At the start of the year, Joe and I made pizza’s from scratch and cooked them in our ooni pizza oven. They tasted amazing!

Home made swallow. For Christmas, my best friend Nicol and her husband Matt bought us such special gifts including this hand made swallow made from her grandma’s china. Such a thoughtful gift!

Garlic sauce. I’ve been loving the three chilli sauces that Nicol and Matt bought us for Christmas. The garlic and chilli one is my fave, it’s sweet but has a kick. So good on magenta pizzas or chicken.

Hotel Chocolat Velvetiser. I’ve had a hot chocolate every day since I got it. I can’t quite believe I spent sixty five pounds on hot chocolates from Hotel Chocolat, but they are so tasty. A treat for eating so healthly.

MC D’s katsu chicken nuggets. Speaking of being ‘healthy’, I had a little treat mid January and tried the new katsu chicken nuggets, they were delicious. Would highly recommend and would happily purchase them again and again.

Walks. Joe and I went to cassiobury park and did 10,000 steps, it was nice to get out, but soooo busy. Now I’m aiming to hit 6,000 steps a day as I was finding hitting 10k too hard.

Girls Zoom Night – A very much needed and overdue chats with my fave girl friends. It got a bit emotional at times but glad we had each others support. Can’t believe we chatted from 7:30 till 12:55am haha! Looking forward to seeing them in person when this is all over!

Snow day – Today we did an hour walk with Archie in the snow. We went to our local park and it was beaut.

How have you found the lockdown/January?
