January is dull. There’s no denying that and whilst it is the easier option to stay in after school and draw the curtains at 4pm; the best answer is to actually get out there and enjoy the last little hour of sun after the school run.
In the summer we make the most of the long bright evenings, we sit in the park, dine alfresco or go on walks because I love to be outside. I don’t know why I don’t make more of it in the winter.
We’ve started after school beach walks at least once a week, it’s a good chance to get the kids out for some fresh air and to get some use out of those new scooters Santa bought!
Every now and then the dull January clouds lift and it brings a gorgeous sunset, which it did on this day. These photos were just captured on my phone but the beauty remains.
