January that was

January has been a month of celebrations and taking pleasure in the simple things in life.

Happy Birthday
I had a birthday and was treated to a sleep in by my children, a beautiful necklace from DH, a niddy noddy from my Mum (awesome she gets the need for knitting gadgets), a grown ups lunch out with my auntie and many other treats and well wishes on the day from friends and family. The little love note above was made by M6 and left for me to find on the table.

I wasn't the only one who had a birthday. January was also a chance to reflect on and celebrate one whole year of blogging! Thank you to everyone who reads here, it is all of you who makes this blog such a pleasure for me. My little corner of the internet has been a lot of fun! I hope to "meet" many more friends this year too xx

We spent alot of time hanging out as a family and enjoying the sunny outdoors
Playground fun

Going for bike rides
when it gets tough to ride

Just hanging out (being cute)

And enjoying summer fruits

I also got to hang out with bloggy and knitty friends who I normally only see once a year or so. Nikki and Hannah came to melt in the heat knit outdoors, Shortly brought her gang to come and play and just this week another friend from the north island popped in for a visit. We had Nan and AuntieB come and stay too which meant entertained children and more knitting time for me (thank you both xx). January was the month for catching up and spending time in good company.

January was hot, laidback and cruisy. Its such a shame it has to come to an end

Happy birthday. January looks like it has been very productive. I LOVE that owl top. Keep up the selfish knitting.
