January 2017.

In my last post of 17 things in 2017, one of the things I wanted to achieve was to do monthly updates. So, here is the first one!

Working in a kids retail store means that the Christmas rush didn't really die down until the end of the first week of January, which is totally ok but I felt like it took a while to get started on any "projects"! However, I feel so motivated right now that there was no way I would let that defeat me.

I had the most wonderful New Year with Phil, we went to Bath and had dinner in Burger and Lobster and had to fight the food coma! We then drove back home and went to see some friends before it struck midnight.

January has very much been all about my week off. I was so productive and has so many trips out. To name a few I headed up to London for the start of birthday celebrations at Gaucho, possibly the latest dinner of my life and the next day we went to see Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, I won't go on about it but I will say it's one of the most incredible bits of theatre I have ever seen.

During my week off I spent a couple of days sorting admin bits out, tidying and chores I had been putting off since before Christmas and I simply did not have time until then. It was also my mum and sisters birthday, on the same day I might add, so while my parents were at the spa. I had a day with the dogs, to run errands and set up a balloon and presents and we had an incredible takeaway.

It has been so long since Phil and I had an alphabet date but we finally did another! It was my turn, and I had I. We had an impromptu visit to Southampton as we hadn't been for about 6 weeks so we could go to all the stores we wanted to. We then went to IKEA which was a pleasant eye-opener and we found all our dream furniture. Then we finished with Ice Cream. A simple date but one of the best!

Lastly, I started my degree through Open Uni, eek. I did start a week or so early mainly so I could ease myself into it slowly, which I am really glad I did. I've been enjoying it so far which I'm so pleased with. I'm gaining knowledge that I can use in my job already which is a bonus and it is helping me to understand why we do things a certain way. I can't wait to see what I will learn next!

All in all, I have had a great start to 2017, I feel so motivated and I can't wait to see what February holds. Plus, only a few weeks till another week off!

How has January been for you?
