Not to be overly negative but I’m so glad to see the back of January! It’s my least liked month; It’s dark, wet and after the excitement of Christmas and holidays everything just feels a bit flat. During these Winter months when asked what I’ve been up to my answer is usually the same, not much. Work and a lot of doing nothing, although if I’m honest I quite enjoy doing nothing sometimes. Whilst I moan about how boring January is, there’s something to be said for having time to spend curled up in-front of a good TV show, making time for self care and enjoying the little things.
I love binge watching TV shows, dare I say it more than I enjoy watching films nowadays. My attention span seems to have become more limited and I prefer an hour programme which grabs me, so I’ll often end up watching several in a row anyway. During the Summer months I like to get out as much as possible and so don’t watch a huge amount of TV, but during these cold dark days I like to curl up under a blanket and raid my favourite streaming services for entertainment. My Winter dream is to kit out the study with more bean bags and a huge 4k TV from the Panasonic 4K TV Range.
My favourite shows to binge currently are on Hay-U, the reality TV streaming service which I think was made purely to satisfy my seemingly insatiable need for really awful trashy television. I’m currently hooked on the latest series of Vanderpump Rules and RHOBH.
I’m also pretty devastated Celebrity Big Brother is finishing tonight -Jedward to win obviously- and am contemplating re-watching all of The Hills to help fill the Speidi void.
There’s an unofficial rule in my house which states it’s against the law to wear normal clothes past 6pm. If I’m done for the evening, have no where to go and no one coming over, you can pretty much guarantee I’ll be in my PJs or a onesie.
Hot drinks are definitely essential for a cosy Winter evening. If I had it my way I’d drink coffee from noon until night but being human and requiring sleep that’s sadly not an option. I’ve switched to these mint herbals teas and I’m loving them.
Besides lazing around in-front of the TV and log burner, I love spending my Winter evenings cooking. We’ve just renovated our kitchen so there’s loads of room to create delicious vegetarian Winter warmers and comfort food. I like putting music or TV on in the background and trying random meals from magazines, cook books and Pinterest (with varying success!).
