This Plus That Equals…. January Plans

This plus that equals…. January plans

Here’s the latest instalment in my series of posts all about what makes our lives here at home tick. This week is all about my plans for the coming month. No New Year’s Resolutions here, I don’t believe in them, just my usual plans for the coming month.

My birthday

I won’t be doing much, in fact I’m at work the evening of my Birthday.

All I want to do is have a long walk round Southwold and a pub lunch. Maybe a G&T or two as well. It would be nice if we did this near my birthday but so long as it happens at some point during the month of January I’ll be happy.

The great toy purge

It’s got to be done! After Christmas and with his birthday only a couple of months ago we’re bursting at the seams with toys.

So we’ll go through everything and sort into piles, charity, keep and bin. All whilst he is asleep and reclaim a tiny bit of order in our house.

Spring clean

Yeah I know it’s not spring but putting decorations away and finding homes for new gifts is the perfect time for a good clean.

So much gets moved around to accommodate Christmas the house seems really empty when it’s gone which strangely makes a big clean seem less overwhelming to me.

December was so busy we are all exhausted. January will be the opposite.

L definitely has Christmas overwhelm so he will benefit from some boring days at home and the return of his routine.

Husb and I will benefit from getting or weekends back and only having to worry about our little unit and not keeping everyone else happy.

Maybe a little shopping trip

Something just for me

This is now definitely to be a permanent fixture. I deserve one moment a month just for me.

Last year I went out shopping with a friend for my birthday. We spent all the gift vouchers we’d received over Christmas, checked out what was left of the sales and had a nice lunch. I’d rather like to do that again.

Finally, I’m linking up with #TwinklyTuesday, #Blogstravaganza, #StayClassyMama and #fortheloveofBLOG

  1. I desperately need to do some deep cleaning in my house. I feel like I’m living in a pigsty most days! At the very least, this year I have already painted a wall… giving me some decorative inspiration for buying new ‘things’ that I now need… Thanks for linking up to #fortheloveofblog

    1. I’ve been looking at a wall that needs painting, but I fear that will be as far as I get this year. But at least for 5 minutes the house is going to be quite clean.

  2. We’ve had a massive toy purge too, the local charity shop didn’t have enough room for it all either! Happy birthday lovely! Thanks so much for sharing with #Blogstravaganza xx

  3. Sounds like a perfect January! I like your plan to get some you time each month… I might have to add that to my list too πŸ˜€ Oh and the toy purge – it’s so satisfying isn’t it?!

    1. I’ve just put a lock on the bathroom door to help with the me time, a bath without interruption, heaven! Love the toy purge, it is very satisfying indeed. Happy New Year my love
