Life Update: January

Friday, 1 February 2013
Welcome to my new-look monthly summary!  Last year I tried to do weekly updates but some weeks I had like zero pictures to share or nothing remotely interesting happened and I felt like I was writing up a post for the sake of it, not because I actually had anything to say.  So this year I've decided to do a monthly life update instead and have split it into little sections so I can cover things I've been up to, Films/TV shows I've been watching, books I've been reading, music I've been listening to, etc.

I hope you like this new format - let me know if there's anything else you'd like me to include here (or if any bits are really not interesting at all!).

NYE | lunch | shopping | sick day | face | Khublai Khan | new headphones | ice skating

This month I.... 

  • had a quiet New Years Eve with DVDs, homemade cookies, candles, cider, and slanket cuddles
  • enjoyed a catch up lunch with my lovely friend Michael who was over visiting from Paris for Christmas 
  • spent a bit too much in the January sales 
  • joined Weight Watchers and kicked off the new healthy diet and exercise regime
  • ate springbok, kangaroo and ostrich at a Mongolian BBQ on a cinema date night with B
  • went ice skating for the first time in about 10 years (and didn't fall once!)

I've been watching....

  • Been to the cinema twice - Pitch Perfect (pretty good) and then Django Unchained (awesome)
  • Breaking Bad (been getting this on DVD from Lovefilm - halfway through s4 now)
  • Utopia (can catch up on 4OD if you haven't been watching this - it's amazing)
  • Borgen (have been Sky+ing series 2 and slowly catching up)
  • American Horror Story 2: Asylum (soooo good - just got the finale left to watch)

 I've been listening to....

I've been reading....
  • A Clash of Kings by George RR Martin (book 2 in the Game of Thrones series)
  • The Hell of it all by Charlie Brooker (collection of his Guardian columns from a few years ago)

Blog stats fun

My most viewed posts this month were:

And finally, the strangest search terms used to find my blog this month were "how long does Primark sell Christmas slippers" and "how to draw on a sheep nose fancy dress".

How was your January?  Remember to let me know what you think of the new format! :)


  1. I love this! It's so cute and personal, and thorough yet concise! :) I especially love your strangest search terms that brought people to your blog haha! How do you find that out?


    1. Aww thanks! I got the search terms from Google Analytics (if you use this then you go to Traffic Sources > Search > Organic to see the list). x

  2. Love this! Nice wee round up. I'm really loving Utopia as well- although it's so freaky! Absolutely can't watch it alone. Will never look at a spoon in the same way again :/ looks like a good January!xx
