Life - the one where I complain about January blues




Well it's January and January isn't generally exciting is it? Around here we've been missing the hustle and bustle of Christmas, fighting off sickness and getting stuff done. Even poor Lily is sick, she's sneezing and tired and unusually down in the dumps. All she wants to do is lie in the comfiest looking spot she can find and sleep. I know how she feels. 

Neal and I are getting ready for our holiday next month by revising our nautical knowledge. As much as I'm looking forward to a trip away, I don't find passage planning or chart reading very exciting but it has to be done. And then there's flights and trains to sort out, kennels to book, budgets to organise. It should all be worth it when we get there. 

For entertainment I've been working on some hairband designs that my sister and I started while she was here. We picked up some cheap, pretty fabrics and searched the web for inspiration. I've discovered I love the 'tuck and cover' style for my hair. It's so easy and prettier than the usual up do and I think a bit of fabric on my head livens up my winter outfits. 

January is a sad month don't you think? The wonderful festive season is over, diets begin and spending is cut back - at least that's what it's like for me. I'm more than a little jealous of the generous helpings of snow I'm seeing in other parts of the world at the moment, but at least I can enjoy the beautiful weather we are having in Dubai. Before long it will be super hot again and I'll be wishing it was January once more.
