Me and Mine 2016 // January

I’m so excited to finally be starting the me and mine project, linking up with the lovely Lucy at Dear Beautiful. I love looking at everyone else’s photos, especially when you can see all of the photos together that have been taken over the course of the year. We have so few photos that we’re all in, and definitely very limited ones of me as i’m always behind the lens. I feel really positive about joining in with this project, as it will be something so nice to look back on, and it encourages us to really make an effort trying to get a picture of all of us. That being said, this was quite a difficult task to achieve! Having been away with friends for the last week, we should have really thought about asking them to get a pic of the four of us, but we were just so busy that i really didn’t take many photos at all, as everyone seemed to be in a different place, either having separate ski lessons or just going for a walk to keep the babies entertained. So with that I left it till the very last minute (3pm today!) to walk to the end of our road, set up the gorilla pod, where the legs for some reason were not staying attached and kept on falling off when I was trying to get a good angle to set it down to take this pic! You can’t tell here, but i really think the husband wanted to kill me just before this was taken as it took me so long to fix the bloody gorilla pod that Hugo kept on running off and launching himself bum first into muddle puddles then having a tantrum when he was lifted out of them! Definitely need to invest in a proper tripod and maybe a remote! The picture isn’t the best, but it’s the best I could do with a grumpy husband and a screaming one year old that really didn’t want to be confined for the sake of a photo!

So January…usually a pretty quiet month for us, back to healthy eating, trying not to spend any pennies after the explosion of Christmas, but actually it was a super busy month for us this year. We started the month with the husband and Finley still on Christmas holidays and enjoying our last few days at home, and with a trip to Disney-on-ice thrown in. Then it was back to school, work and toddler groups. I spent the first couple of weeks researching a place to stay for a few days over the Easter holidays, organising the husbands birthday surprises and presents, and planning for our ski-trip. After that came a lovely night out for the big birthday with 22 close friends, then a few days later our ski-ing trip to Chamonix and more birthday celebrations. We arrived home on Friday and have had a lovely chilled weekend at home, unpacking, doing chores and just generally relaxing together. Oh and how could I forget to say that Finley came out in chicken pox on the first day of holiday, what bad timing! But all was pretty much ok as he didn’t have it too bad, we just delayed ski school by a couple of days hoping that he wasn’t contagious anymore. Anyway the French didn’t seem to bothered about it but hopefully he didn’t infect everyone there! Just waiting to see if Hugo catches it now…

So with that busy month out the way, i’m really looking forward to a pretty quiet February with a well earned half-term thrown in.

    I’ve done a few of these now, and it’s always a challenge, but this month I remembered a bit earlier than I normally do! It’s a lovely challenge to join, and I’m sure we’ll love looking back over these photos.
    It sounds like you’ve had a fabulous month with skiing and nights out!
