I still can’t believe we’re now halfway through February. 2019 is flying by! I’m joining in with something a bit different today. I’m taking part in Rachael and Georgia’s “Five Things Linky.” What’s that I hear you ask? Well, it’s a link up in which once a month you share five things you loved that month. What I really like about this is that if you’re a parent, you can’t choose things that are parenthood related, so it really gets you thinking about what you loved that month outside of your mama duties! So without further ado, here we go!
I managed to read three books in January, which puts me a little behind my target for the year(52, so one book a week) but I loved every moment that I spent reading. I particularly enjoyed The Tattooist of Auschwitz(10/10 recommend!) and I’d love to know if you have any recommendations for me of something similar if you’ve read that also?
After finding out about the #150hoursoutside project I’ve been spending so much more time outdoors with Tyler. I know, I know, I shouldn’t pick things that are parenting related BUT this being outdoors isn’t just for him, it’s for me too, I’m loving spending more time being out in the open with nature and I encourage you to get out there too!
For Christmas I bought Jack tickets to go and see Architects perform at Wembley Arena and of course, I went along with him and it was honestly(probably) the best live gig I’ve ever seen. The visuals were beaut, the show itself was insane and the band were just out of this world. I would go again a million times over if I could!
Now, I haven’t kept completely on track with my “schedule” so far this year but I spent a lot of time planning and thinking about what I want for Love, Maisie in 2019. I felt quite inspired throughout January and I’m hoping to execute my plans throughout the year.
That Sustainable Life
You might have seen that back at the end of December I launched Sustainably Maisie. In January I’ve really been trying my hardest to make as many sustainable swaps as possible. We switched to reusable nappies(there’s a whole blog post coming soon all about that!) and I’ve been more conscious of my consumption and waste than ever and it makes me feel genuinely happy to know that I’m helping to make a difference.
