Mrs Maisel, Winter Coats and Summer Countdown?!

Mrs Maisel, Winter Coats and Summer Countdown?!

Hello, how are you? I wanted to write this post mainly because I really struggle with January (Is it too soon for a Summer countdown?) It has been a tough month, it generally always is. This year in particular it has been full of rubbish, bad news and  little upsets that have been keeping me awake at night. So I wanted/needed to write positive post because it is always easy to remember the bad bits and not so much the good.

So as we approach the the last couple of weeks of the longest month ever, here is what has made me smile.


I have been watching ‘The Amazing Mrs Maisel’ and it is brilliant. After watching You and the The House on the Haunted Hill I wanted to watch something a little lighter, Mrs Maisel is exactly what I needed.


I love reading, the problem I have is that once I start a good book everything else is forgotten about!! I have been reading ‘Watching You’ by Lisa Jewell and it was amazing, I was gripped.


I am loving the new song by George Ezra ‘Hold my Girl’ his music is beautiful. Hopefully I will get to see him live in concert one day.

Making more effort to catch up with some of my lovely friends has been on my to do list. Just a quick cuppa after I’ve been to a baby group with Alf. It has been so nice to see people. Definitely going to try and see people a little more, it really brightens up my week.

I have also heard the usual moaning about school – sigh!


Oh it’s been cold hasn’t it. I have been wearing my new Winter coat from New Look which I love,  I have also been teaming it with a bright colourful scarf which was a present from my lovely friend. Winter coats definitely are my new thang.

Summer plans!! Much needed summer plans! I am on Summer countdown already. I always like to book a little something during these cold months so I have something to look forward to. We have booked a couple of weeks in Spain during the summer. Is it too soon for a countdown?

I also ‘made’ time for a little date night with my husband. It is so easy to get into a rut and stay in, we are always so tired by the end of the week and it can be hard to get a babysitter, but we made the effort and went out for some food and drinks and it was lovely.

And lastly

I have some dinner plans with my best friend this weekend and I can’t wait for some good food and even better company.

How is your week? Are you on the Summer countdown?

  1. It is never too early for a summer countdown, and I think we definitely need it during the winter time. Mrs Maisel sounds a good watch as we have also finished watching You. I love Lisa Jewell books, and Watching You is brilliant. Have a lovely weekend with your friend x

  2. We’re fully on countdown here, through excitement for Disney World in April. I do love winter though and the gorgeous frosty mornings. You was intense, like you I’m after watching something lighter.

  3. Ah no hope you are ok, we are getting there January is almost over lets hope February is a better months for you all. It sounds like a date night and a few coffee’s with the girls was just what you needed. So sorry my comment is late this last couple of weeks have whizzed by xx
