I can hardly believe that it’s the 1st of February. January just went so fast for me but that’s because I was on summer break. And I find that the days just go by in a flash when I’m on holiday from work. But I’m happy to be back today with the February edition of Currently and I am linking up with Jennifer from Overflowing With Thankfulness. Today we are looking at what we are currently loving, feeling, posting, receiving and seeing.
I have been loving summer!! It’s been humid and sticky. My hair has been suffering from a shocking case of frizz but I just love the hot weather so much!
Even though I have absolutely loved being on summer break. Now that I am back at work I love that tired feeling after a long busy day. And when I go to bed I fall asleep as soon as my head hits the pillow.
During the holidays I had trouble falling asleep even when I went to bed really late. This was totally fine because I didn’t have to go to work the next day and I had the luxury of sleeping in. But I know for sure that I don’t sleep as well during the holidays as I do now that I’m dead tired after work.
I am feeling so positive about this year! Last year was the worst and I figure that if I can survive a year like that then I can probably survive almost anything. I am seeing everything through fresh eyes and grateful for a new year.
And I have also been feeling very blessed. I have a wonderful family and the most amazing friends. I feel like I have come out of a very long tunnel and this year I have found the sunshine.
I have been posting more often here on the blog. But that’s because I have been on summer break. Now that I am back at work I’m not sure that I will be able to keep up. But that’s ok, I’ll try my best and see how I go.
I guess the first thing that comes to mind is that I have been receiving a few online shopping deliveries. But they are not for me. They are for my oldest son. He lives in an apartment and so it’s just easier if his things get delivered to our house. Then he picks them up when he comes over to visit.
I have been seeing lots of new little faces at preschool. Many of the last years preschoolers have moved on to kindergarten this year. And now we have new children beginning preschool. It always amazes me how at the start of the year what a huge deal it is for them to get to know us and then eventually trust us.
After all, we are strangers to them and it must be so overwhelming for them to come into a new environment, say goodbye to their parents, and trust that we will look after them until their loved ones come to pick them up.
Some children are fine with all of this and they walk into preschool so excited and ready to explore everything. But others take more time so I have also seen a few sad faces at preschool too.
This week I have also seen quite a few familiar little faces. We have welcomed back children who were too young to start primary school. And it’s incredible how much children can grow over five weeks. Some of them have had major growth spurts and they have just shot up.
And that’s a wrap for the February edition of Currently. Thank you so much for stopping by today. I’m sure that before we know it we’ll be back here again for the March edition because the days just fly by so fast!
I hope you all have a great Wednesday.
