Anyone who knows me well enough will know I don’t do the coldness. I used to spend my pre-children winter’s eating bad foods and drinking hot drinks dreaming about spring and summer coming back. This is to a certain extent how I do still spend my winter’s but as you all know with three small children day after day stuck in is not a great deal of fun. There is also only so much soft play one can take and if you’re feeling the pinch from christmas still, it can be an expensive couple of hours!
With the January blues in full force I have been trying to embrace the winter days and get out as much as possible with them to have a stomp and let off some steam no matter the temperature.
Hats and scarfs at the ready for a windy day at the beach with Alice from New Young Mum and her daughter Amelia.
One of the best bits about getting out on a freezing January morning is it is almost compulsory to destroy a huge chocolate with whipped cream and marshmallows on return home.
Making the most of a more mild day and practicing riding the new bike father christmas bought! (Yes she is still very much in her spiderman phase!) I was a little worried the bikes wouldn’t get much use at this time of the year but they have been keen to get out no matter what the weather! It is a great way of getting them out and about. Lottie is feeling a little left out of the bike situation so I have been looking out for a balance bike or scooter for her up and coming second birthday I was really impressed to see the wide range of products and acsessories available at the skate hut. It’ll be great to see all three of them zooming around next month!
Am I converted to the colder climate? No I am still looking forward to the sun coming back but this is keeping us sane and maybe I have enjoyed it just a little!
